New on DVD: 'Haywire' (Plus Giveaway!)

Haywire Steven Soderbergh brings his slick, cool style to this action pic and puts real-life MMA fighter Gina Carano at the forefront of it, playing an assassin who finds herself in the center of a cat-and-mouse game being manipulated by her cronies--or are they her enemies? Where the newcomer Carano lacks in acting skills she makes up for in her fight scenes, which Soderbergh expertly shoots to let you actually see all the moves, rather than zooming in or cutting away. The result is bone-breaking action that you may find yourself watching in between your fingers. Extras: Featurettes on Gina Carano's training, and "The Men of Haywire" (DVD, BD)
