Did anyone see Haywire? I know it didn't get that good of reviews, but I thought it looked pretty good, and it had a big name director (Steven Soderbergh), and some big names in the supporting cast (Micheal Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Micheal Douglas).
The reviews that I read were generally favorable, but I didn't really care for the movie. The story was pretty unremarkable, and Gina Carano -- as attractive and physically capable as she is -- couldn't act her way out of a paper bag.

With a budget of $23 million (not counting advertising) and worldwide grosses of $33 million, it wasn't a box office success, either.
