Movie Review: "Haywire"

Funny enough, it's rare nowadays that a film's title actually sums up my feelings about an individual film, but that is the case with Haywire.  A black ops soldier is set up and is now seeking revenge on the people who set her up.  The only difference between this film and almost every action flick of the '90s is that it features a female protagonist (actress Gina Carano), and is directed by Steven Soderbergh.  Unfortunately, this is not one of Soderbergh's better efforts.  It's just when there is nothing new added to this tried story other than a female lead who is nowhere near as charismatic as the male action stars that anchored these kinds of movies in the '90s, why should I watch it?  Not to mention, the movie's chaotic pace, that makes it hard to follow, leaving no time for emotion, making this film cold and heartless.

I give Haywire an F
