Gina Carano’s future is in your hands!

Just because Matthew Polly said Gina Carano’s movie was like “watching Picasso put lipstick on a pig” doesn’t mean we don’t think you should see it. There must be something to like considering it’s still racking up a surprisingly fresh 82% on critic aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes. Plus we’d love it if Gina’s movie outdid the twelth Underworld movie and that no talent ass clown George Lucas’ Red Tails.

If Tom Cruise can pump out terrible action movies and succeed via his charismatic smile and the subtle influence of Xenu, why not Carano? There’s no denying her It factor, and if things go well this coming weekend there’s more acting gigs ready to go. Via Sports Illustrated:

It’s nice for the sport to think that Hollywood has only borrowed her for a short while, but the reality is that Carano’s performance is engaging enough to court other offers. Carano has already been linked to a role in the forthcoming Percy Jackson & the Olympians sequel as Circe, referenced in Homer’s Odyssey as one of the most beautiful and alluring mythical goddesses of them all.

Dependent on how audiences receive Carano in Haywire (and the reviews have been largely positive), there’s also another iconic role in the wings that some will say she was born to play. Hollywood hasn’t given up on its dream to breathe life into Wonder Woman on the big screen.

So go check out Haywire this weekend. We’ve been pretty slack on supporting our MMA movies (okay, Warrior was probably the first worth seeing), and the least we can do for our favorite athletes is help them cross over into Hollywood. We really screwed the pooch by letting Shaq go after ” target=”_blank”>Steel. Let’s not make the same mistake with Gina.

    This movie’s getting quite a bit of press, which I guess goes to show Soderbergh’s street cred.

    The thing about Rotten Tomatoes is that it’s binary, it only counts whether a review was positive or negative and not how much positive it was.  Like on the news this morning, some dorky reviewer who said he’s a huge Soderbergh fan still only gave it 3/5… but that would count as “positive” for RT’s total.

    It’s also interesting to compare the quotes from the reviews to whether they were scored as positive or negative, because they often don’t seem to jive.

    So go check out Haywire this weekend.

    No.

    The WonderWoman thing seems neat, but I can’t see them starring a relative nobody in it.  Especially one who they don’t trust to act/speak yet.

    Also, I don’t know if I can bring myself to sit through a dubbed movie.  I don’t even like Hong Kong flicks that are dubbed.  But I loves me some Gina.  Damn.

    This movie is your typical crap crap crap ….save your money head to a rub and tug and aleast get jerked around and feel good about it instead of feeling ripped off i doubt we will see her in anything after this anyways ..keep in mind thewonderful A-Team remake .If your voice sucks so bad its dubbed to sound like a manly voiced tranny, jobs wont be lining up and if they do shame on the film industry ..Look at Kallan Lutz from twilight i have seen him in Immortals doesn/t speak ,Arena doesnt speak but 3 lines ,Nightmare on elm street once again no words ,i guess if your willing to pay out for this your happy but not i ..Id be happier seeing her in silent films..

    i look at the yahoo reviews since its a a+ throuh f scale

  • FilmDrunk

    Whatever, no one said shit when Oleg Taktarov was in Predators.

  • SHORT_BUS

    Let me know if she decides to do Playboy. Other than that, I don’t need to hear about this chick.

  • frickshun

    I watched Mission Impossible last night. Dumb.

    At least I had a great Mexican dinner & several margaritas beforehand.

  • matthewpolly

    Oleg was good in Predators, but he wasn’t the lead and it wasn’t his first movie. I actually think Gina would have been great as the chick sniper in Predators. That would have been a useful starting role for her. That said, I say take one for the team and go see Haywire. Just go with low expectations. How can 82% of the critics be kinda right and me apparently so wrong?

    Gina Carano’s 5 Favorite Films – RottenTomatoes

    Not a bad list.  Not a great list, but better than I expected.  Could do without Cry-Baby, and the remake of Let the Right One In, but True Romance and Butch Cassidy are solid.  I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love Braveheart too, as overwrought and historically inaccurate as it may be.  Longshanks is the fucking shit.

  • theinsaneoneJustinMcCully

    The few clips I’ve seen have the timing of movies I like and she didn’t destroy the scenes. It’s got a good chance for me.

  • agentsmith

    “Let Me In” was a pretty awesome flick.

  • iamphoenix

    Thats the answer to the question of what do rapists say to vaginas.

  • Cat Snipers

    I’m going to see underworld i mean sexy vampire in skin tight clothing or redundant Bourne Identity spy movie with the plot “we made them awsome now we try to kill them, but why are they killing everyone to get revenge?” Yup sexy vampire it is.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Came across this in Ebert’s review.

    Mallory is played by Gina Carano, a retired mixed martial arts fighter.

  • frickshun

    ^^Ha!! Only non-MMA fans can accept the truth.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    True that.

    As jealous as I am as an irrational MMA fan of Hollywood stealing the gal we brought to the club, I rationally am glad she’s in a career where brain damage isn’t a constant threat.

  • agentsmith

    She’s definitely retired unless this flick absolutely bombs, which it doesn’t seem to be.  It’s currently #5 at the box office.

  • Reverend Clint

    not that good of numbers

  • iamphoenix

    Ginas last fight was in 1998. Thats what my memory is telling me anyways…

  • frickshun

    Gina’s last fight is every time the waiter asks if she’d like to see the dessert menu.
