I just found this tidbit on tator tots channing. Like I said, the guy is very versatile can do anything...his career is still in it's infant stages and has the potential to be the next huge star hybrid we haven't seen.


The Hollywood Reporter says Channing Tatum (Magic Mike, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is in negotiations to star in and produce a film about daredevil Evel Knievel for Columbia Pictures.
Tatum would produce with his Iron Horse Entertainment partner Reid Carolin, who will also write the screenplay, adds the trade. Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti, the duo who will produce the Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation, are on board to produce as well.

Nah; he's mumbled/whined out his lines in most every movie I've seen him in. That's not to say he can't improve. My daughter's a big fan of his, though. I'd say he's mostly "FaceBook stock" for now.

"I knew you'd say that"...*BLAM!*

The presence of Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Bandaras, and Michael Douglas didn't hurt, either. The way the film was plotted screamed, "Franchise!" and I hope it works out. I would love to see Carano's Mallory bust more heads while saving Western civilization.
Highly recommended, 8 Stars our of 10.

Well I will finally get to see tonight. Hopefully its good.

It's entertaining for the fight scenes and Gina's easy on the eyes, if nothing else. Don't expect a mindblowing plot. It's pretty much your typical butt-kicking woman against the world movie.


(Don't get me wrong, I like women that kick butt as much as the next guy, but those movies do have a sense of "sameness" about them.)

Frank -- Tulpa's warning is warranted. Although I loved Haywire, I recognize that it is a somewhat generic action thriller. I thought it was saved by its intricate plot and wonderful ensemble cast but will readily concede that it falls well short of greatness. I hope that you will consider the 93 minutes it will take to watch it time well spent. Let us know what you think.

I watched it last night, it was ok but definitley a movie I could only watch once. Gina definitley looks nice and attractive but I think the fight scenes were not convincing compared to other movies ive seen. Great cast, still suprised why they signed up for a movie like this.

Next movie to watch will be the girl with the dragon Tattoo with Daniel Craig. smile.gif

Really? That's kind of surprising. When I saw it, I thought "finally, someone who actually has experience fighting and doesn't rely on camera trickery to make it look like she can kick ass." Huh.

To me, the fight sequences looked like reality (in as far as imagining a skilled female fighter kicking a$$ and taking names)....it really is the best part of the movie.

Her assets are fine. I did not find her face overly attractive compared to other potential femme fatales - though, granted, she could probably break them all in half.smile.gif

Yeah, there are a lot of "angry" people here too.
But Americans have a long history of complaining, and then failing to actually do anything about it.
In other words, the USA is a country of lazy whiners....it's part of OUR culture.wink.gif

It might be that the fights in Haywire weren't as flashy as other movies, but you got to remember that movie fights are often heightened for excitement at the expense of realism. If you try to fight like Jackie Chan in real life, you'd get your ass kicked fast (don't get me wrong, if Jackie were challenged by a real life thug, Jackie would kick his ass, but it wouldn't look like what he does in his movies.)

With Haywire, what I thought was impressive was that it was closer to actual MMA style fighting (go figure, Gina's a former MMA fighter.) Sure, it's not as impressive as a spectacle as what Angelina Jolie or Milla Jovovich's characters may do in a movie, but the real Angelina and Milla can't pull that stuff off without help anyway. IMO, of course.

I think your right there Tulpa , I enjoy the flashy fighting. I know it's not right but I'm used to it and I enjoy it.

What I don't understand is how a girl who's built like that - Momma Nature was very good to Gina - can be a boxer/fighter? You'd think all those body blows would turn her impressive assets into so much bruised and battered mush. eek.gif

She must be wearing some sort of protection when she's fighting

If you think about it, boxers/fighters, male or female, seldom get hit in the chest. Solar plexus, ribs, kidneys, arms – more by accident - and head, are where the devastating blows are delivered. Hitting someone in the chest does nothing but waste energy.

I am inclined to agree. As much as I enjoyed Haywire when I saw it in the theater, I don't plan to buy the BD either. If I run across it for about $10 sometime, I might pickup a copy but would certainly not be willing to pay more than that. It is still priced at over $20 at Amazon so the likelihood of me buying it very soon is about zero.

She has a very powerful lower half. Something you don't see much from actors but a lot in athletes - uh, male athletes. She did look very nice in an evening dress though.
