It's worth seeing, and hands-down it's one of your better options at the cineplex right now, but there's no urgency.
November 25, 2013
It may seem like this is merely an exercise in style and to be honest, it is. Soderbergh's clearly fascinated by the physicality of Carano as a fighter and Haywire's sole reason for existence is to highlight those skills.

Soderbergh rocks this genre and Carano gives any male action star a run for his money.

I bet Soderbergh secretly considers this one of his favorite films.

A maze that keeps leading to surprising places.

Steven Soderbergh continues his occasional practice of using actors as found objects in his perfectly enjoyable formula action-thriller Haywire.
January 8, 2013
Mixed martial-arts star Carano puts major muscle, if minor acting ability, into this enjoyable action flick.
January 8, 2013
A lean and vastly entertaining picture.

Haywire rips along at a fair old pace, crunches all the right bones and is capable of drawing sharp intakes of breath during the fantastic fight scenes, so in that regard, Steven Soderbergh can call it a success.

"Don't think of her as a woman. That would be a mistake," says an s.o.b. late in this sexy, jazzy exercise, and he couldn't be more wrong. The action film as a love letter to a lethal goddess.

Haywires shortcomings don't detract from the minute to minute onscreen ride - featuring Carano's fresh (and uncompromising) action work.

[Soderbergh] may be unpredictable but his command of movie making is exhilarating and lord knows he's never dull.
August 22, 2012
It's impressive that something so utterly familiar can feel this refreshing. This is Le Samourai for the Steven Seagal crowd.

Gina Carano manages to display swift blows and quick thinking as well as masterful kicks to the guts of her enemies while retaining a sensuality that is just bold and absolutely irresistible.
July 21, 2012
Steven Soderbergh devised the film especially for his kickboxing champion leading lady Gina Carano, who kicks her way through a line of leading men, all coming off a poor second best.
July 17, 2012
If you're a fan of the action-thriller genre, Soderbergh superbly nails what thrills it takes for those films to work so well.

June 1, 2012
The movie is really only bursting at the seams during its fight scenes. Instead of rapid-fire cutting to accentuate the danger, the camera just stops and pays witness to the action.

... we just wait for her to click back into fight mode. Her body language tells us more about her character than any dialogue exchange.
May 6, 2012
While it remains to be seen where Carano goes from here in her film career, she certainly makes a memorable and quality first impression.

April 26, 2012
If you were to look at it as an assembly of tough (non-action) leading actors being lined up to have the crap beaten out of them by Carano - then it's a total success.
