I'm very excited about seeing Steven Soderbergh's new action film Haywire. I know it looks like a Bourne Identity-type movie with a girl in the lead role, but that doesn't make the movie any less badass. You can now watch the first 5-minutes of the film below, and it contains a great hardcore fight scene that sets the tone for what looks like a entertaingly awesome movie.
The action thriller stars MMA fighter Gina Carano, Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Angarano, and Mathieu Kassovitz.
Here's the Synopsis:
Mallory Kane is a highly trained operative who works for a government security contractor in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world. After successfully freeing a Chinese journalist held hostage, she is double crossed and left for dead by someone close to her in her own agency. Suddenly the target of skilled assassins who know her every move, Mallory must find the truth in order to stay alive.
Using her black-ops military training, she devises an ingenious—and dangerous—trap. But when things go haywire, Mallory realizes she’ll be killed in the blink of an eye unless she finds a way to turn the tables on her ruthless adversary.
The movie comes out on January 20th, 2012. Check out the first 5-minutes of the movie below and tell us what you think!
