CATEGORIES Movie NewsMoviefone's Pick of the Week "Haywire" What's It About? "Ocean's 11" director Steven Soderbergh takes a shot at the action-thriller genre, telling the story of a butt-kicking black ops soldier who is double-crossed on a mission and goes on a path of revenge. See It Because: It's not anything revolutionary in terms of storytelling, but the masterful director has a lot of fun riffing on the action movie staple. What makes "Haywire" stand out is that he loads his cast with great actors like Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Michael Douglas. And best of all, the film's tough-as-nails lead is played by the legit MMA champion Gina Carano.
