    Oh, this is going in my queue.  It’ll be nice to see Michael Fassbender get his ass kicked around the room by a woman.  He does, doesn’t he?

    I didn’t like her performance in Haywire, it felt emotionally disconnected. I guess imagine if she dubbed over all her lines a week after filming them so she was no longer emotionally invested in the scenes.

    Working title: Fox Force Five?

    Yes, more Zoe please.  There’s a “Making Of” feature on her direct-to-video movie where she’s practising kicking up into a henchman’s face: by bowing forward until her head touches the ground and hitting him with the heel of the foot on her free leg. There’s something or other wrong with a bunch of takes so she just bobs up and down for 5 minutes like a drinking bird toy – no sweat.  Her standing leg seems to be crazy glued to the floor but it’s just perfect balance.  Awesome Kiwi!!!

    Carano was great in Haywire, but it clearly took a script that was crafted around NOT acting, the deft hand of Soderbergh, and the film being 85% action sequences to cover for the fact that she canNOT act. Gina has great charisma, is a great athlete, and a delightful screen presence, but…. she has a long way to go before becoming a competent actor that I’d care to see in a movie…. particularly a low grade independent by an unknown director purposefully creating a low-budget action flick.

    Haywire 2 or another project under the control of Soderbergh again… sure. This… not so much.

    Ronda Rousey beats Carano 

    both in looks AND ability to kick the crap out of someone

    But Death Proof isn’t! (streaming on Netflix. Yet.)

    Gina Torres. I’d like to see Torres back kicking ass onscreen.

    What’s great about Haywire is that it’s a master class in how to properly choreograph, film, and edit a modern action movie. No shakey-cam, no rapid-fire editing, you always know where the combatants are, and it’s exciting as hell.
