Haywire: She's Off The Grid

Don't mess with Mallory. She leaps like a gazlle, runs like a panther, fights like Jackie Chan, shoots like Annie Oakly, drives like Dale Inman and loves like a woman.

But don't tell that to double crossers Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, Bill Paxton, Michael Fassbinder, Antonio Banderas, and, maybe Michael Douglas. She gets the better of every one of them and she does it with style.

Don't see this movie for the plot. It's nonsensical at best.

See it — and the Movie Slut thinks there's always a reason to see a movie — for the exquisitely choreographed and vibrantly scored fight and flight scenes. Mallory is played by martial arts whiz Gina Carano, a Thai MMA specialist (whatever that is) and she's got the moves.
