Soderbergh is one of a few directors who seems more than capable of tackling any genre (Richard Linklater being the most obvious other ). Haywire starts of as a normal action film but quickly turns in to all star thriller more akin to something like Traffic. The difference being that every once in a while the plot will stop for an action sequence where Gina Carano kicks some ass. The fight sequences are great because they feel real as do most of the action sequences which lend the entire film a sense of realism so often lacking. The story is somewhat inconsequential but also does little to detract from the enjoyment.
