Hanna

Action-thriller about a 14-year-old (The Lovely Bones' Saorise Ronan), raised by her father to be a cold-hearted killing machine. Directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice).

Hanna (Ronan) is no regular teenage girl: she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a solider. These come from being raised by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland. Her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. 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 (Cate Blanchett).

An exuberantly crafted chase thriller that pulses with energy from its adrenaline-pumping first minutes to its muted bang of a finish.

Fascinating. Wright confounds expectations with a wholly original genre mash-up, anchored by the splendid Ronan. Offering a unique worldview, even Blanchett and Hollander’s sore-thumb casting adds to the strange texture.

In the end there might not be much to this tale other than titillation, but there's plenty to be said for Ms. Ronan, who was the best thing about "Atonement" and holds her ground against forceful screen presences like Ms. Blanchett and Mr. Bana.

Here we have an odd cross between a fairy tale and a high-tech action movie. It could have been a fairly strained attempt at either, but director Joe Wright ("Atonement") combines his two genres into a stylish exercise that perversely includes some sentiment and insight.

Blessed with considerable virtues, including a clever concept, crackling filmmaking and a charismatic star, it ultimately squanders all of them, undone by an unfortunate lack of subtlety and restraint.

The overall enterprise, for all its intrigue and visceral impact, feels overly thought out, affected and forced in its stylization.

An absurd-sounding concept rendered wholly believable and thrilling by a fearless young actress and a director at the top of his game.

Superficially exciting and handled with great aplomb. But the film is running to go nowhere.

This film can be seen as a standard, fast paced, often thriller with predictable plot twists. However it really was refreshing. What I loved most about this film was the supporting characters (the entertaining Jessica Barden and Tom Hollander's off-beat bad guy especially) and the eerie, dense Cinematography (by Alwin Kuchler). The dark fairy-tale...

It's an enjoyable child assassin flick. the filming is interesting bordering on brilliant. The locations are quirky, interesting and well scouted, providing an alternate view of well known places. The movie in many ways is not stereotypical except for Cate Blanchett whose character who stereotypical and strangely out of place. An enjoyable flick though....

Saorise Ronan was fantastic in director Joe Wright's Atonement, but this re-teaming of the pair just doesn't make the grade. It fails to be a brilliant "young assassin" movie (a la Luc Besson's LEON: THE PROFESSIONAL). It also fails to be a moody, arty contemplation on violence, much as THE AMERICAN recently failed. Aiming for something like the...

whil;st Cate Blanchett doesn't really extend herself beyond a sort of bond-villiany ham bad guy, the movie is smoothly paced and there is always danger in your periphery. best seen in a theatre with a couch to sit on, or on your own couch at home. you'll want a hot choc to sip early on too.

What can I say about Joe Wright's Hanna. Well what an amazing film, exuberating, well crafted and pulsing with energy. It's a gripping chase movie all the way through - the Music by the Chemical Brothers is brilliant- with Hanna's theme, The Devil is in the Details, Container Park and Escape Wavefold, just to name a few. The atmosphere is brilliant...

Hanna boasts some nifty editing, a suitably rousing Chemical Brothers score, and at least two leads doing well under the circumstances (Ronan and Blanchett, for the record). But the director can't quite seem to decide whether he's aiming for grown-ups (who'll probably find the "drama" thoroughly predictable) or younger viewers (who'll probably...

Like all his previous films this one delivers. Although it may not have as much action as some people want you cannot help but become engrossed in this movie. Saorsie Ronan is brilliant as Hanna, and all the supporting cast are fantastic complete with a mini 'vicky pollard' Also keep and eye out for the fantastic done in one shot fight scene with Eric Bana
