Movie Review: Hanna (2011)

Hanna (Ronan) is a teenage girl. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a soldier; these come from being raised by her father (Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland. Living a life unlike any other teenager, her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Ms. Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity. Release Date: April 8th 2011

Stars: Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana

 

My Review:

This movie was a bit different than your typical assassin movie. We’ve got this little blonde girl with big blue eyes that can kick the crap out of anyone in her way….no matter their size. The idea of this I thought was really good but it wasn’t executed as well as I hoped for. With that said it was still pretty good. With Hanna on her on her own she was learning everything for the first time and getting herself into trouble. It was interesting how they showed her different interactions with a electronics, cars and kids. All things that she hadn’t seen before. The fight scenes were actually pretty good too, they didn’t look fake or that she was on wire or anything. Overall it was an entertaining movie but I don’t see myself really watching it again anytime soon.
