  A breath of fresh air!

| | See all emperor10's reviews (273)

This British-German production is a breath of fresh air from the usual Hollywood films.In fact,it feels like a european version of the Bourne films.Quirky,good acting,and relatable characters,and a good story.I would highly recommend this.

  "..A MUST SEE THRILLER.."

This is a remarkable movie with a fantastic story and a great cast, Saoirse Ronan who plays Hanna is a fantastic actress and really steals the show, the music for the movie was scored by the chemical brothers and is very unique and plays a major role in making the movie extra cool, a fast paced action packed film, original and brilliant a must see.

  TEENAGE KICKS.....PUNCHES,SHOOTINGS and ASSASSINATIONS!

| | See all SECTION8's reviews (1336)

Hanna is not what I expected, I thought it was going to all out action, but infact it was something different, but in a good way.
Having grown up in the frozen wilderness away from civilisation by father figure Eric Banner, she was tought in survival but when given an option to see the real world by pushing a button, Hanna soon realises her full potential and her little world is just the tip of the iceberg of a far sinister secret. The film is a mix of Jason Bourne's gritty action, a road movie when she meets up with a hippy family and a out of place fairy tail that does grate a little. But when it comes to action this girl can kick some but the best sequence comes when Eric Banner lets his fist's and feet fly at a train station.
Hanna is a strange film, but it's very well made and mostly well acted (apart from the teenage daughter of the hippy family) The ending is an anti-climax as I thought it could have gone out with a bang instead of a rather dull game of cat and mouse in a run down amusement park, but these niggles does not stop it from being a very good film that has cult status written all over it.
It's worth a watch even just for the oddness of it all.
See if you like.....

I was expecting a teenage Bourne identity type film from the look of the trailer and although it is full of some great action scenes, it is a little too artsy for me.
Saoirse Ronan gives another great performance and shows that she is destined for great things.

  Great movie

| | See all Yamikotai's reviews (2)

This is an excellent movie; I saw it when it was in the cinema. There is a lot of subtlety in it that one of the previous reviewers obviously didn't pick up on. Saoirse Ronan is a fantastic actress, particularly in this role as an innocent child being thrown into a world she doesn't understand.

I felt compelled to write this review after seeing someone had given this film a 5star!! I rarely review anything unless it is exceptionally brilliant or exceptionally dire. This is a 2star movie and I have given it a 1star to add some balance.

The plot is tiresome, girl on the run, gets in a tight spot, kills baddies in spectacular fashion. All the action is handed to you on a plate, with each scene trying to be more spectacular than the next. No subtlty. If however you are of the fast n furious crowd then you may like this movie.

However if, like me, you prefer climatic action wth a rich plot and character depth then there are many other better films out there. Terminator 2 for example is, IMHO, one of the best action films ever made. I also recommend Zatoichi, it's an Enghlish subtitled Japanese Samurai movie, but you will not be disappointed.

Hanna? stick to watching the trailer and dont waste two hours of your life watching the film.

  Hits the Target!

| | See all Kevin1075's reviews (754)

I'll not pretend here that the underlying plot of Hanna is entirely new - it's story of revenge is an old one - but here the full marks is for director Joe Wright managing to put an energetic and lively spin to the story and make the old seem new!

Sixteen year old Hanna (Saiorse Ronan) has been raised by her father (Eric Bana) to be an assassin. Her target is CIA agent Marissa Veigler (Cate Blanchett), the woman who murdered her mother years before. Leaving her isolated wintry existence behind, Hanna ventures out into a world she has only read about but never experienced, towards a confrontation with the truth about her life and it's meaning.

In another impressive performance (following from 'The Lovely Bones' and 'Atonement') Ronan is the centre of the film and completely involves you in her journey. One moment she may be dispatching bad guys and escaping underground safehouses, the next she is experiencing true wonder at discovering the world around her and she nails every moment with total believability. She is absolutely one of the finest young actresses around today but here is well supported by Blanchett and Bana.

A fast pace, excellent direction and a pulsating soundtrack by The Chemical Brothers make this a far, far cut above the normal for this genre of film and I would totally recommend it to anyone at all looking for a fantastic thriller.
