First of all, I have no earthly idea why it is called haywire. It stars Gina Carano, who appears to have limited acting experience. She's not a bad actress but she has very little range and the expression on her face is pretty frozen. It has a lot of other good actors, Michael Douglas, Ewan Mcgregor, Bill Paxton, Antonio Banderas. Gina is some kind of spy. She doesn't seem to be working for the government but she is a good guy. She gets in a lot of predicaments that force her to fight her way out of it. Lots of fighting. There are some plot twists that make it a little interesting. The movie kept my interest throughout. I also think they kind of set it up in the end for a sequel. MMA fans will no doubt like seeing her kick ass. I'd like to see a little more meat on the plot bone. I guess I'm glad I saw it but my wife would be completely uninterested. I'd give it 3 1/2 dawg bones out of 5.
