Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Hanna has the plot of a Hollywood action blockbuster but the style of a European art movie--and this unholy hybrid is fascinating to watch. Hanna (Saoirse Ronan, The Lovely Bones) has been raised by her father (Eric Bana, Munich), an ex-covert agent, for one purpose: to murder the American agent, Marissa Wiegler (Cate Blanchett), who murdered Hanna's mother. Hanna thinks she succeeds and escapes, but she's actually being followed by Wiegler, who will go to any lengths to exterminate the girl. Hanna could have been little more than a tween reboot of La Femme Nikita, but in the hands of director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) the movie spends as much time on Hanna's budding relationship with a girl on holiday in Morocco as it does on Hanna's capacity to kill. Even the action scenes have atypical rhythms (and one violent sequence occurs in a long, sustained shot that will make film geeks squeal with glee). Hanna is visually sumptuous, emotionally delicate, and completely unlike any other action flick you'll see. The ending goes flat as disappointingly banal plot mechanics take hold, but up until then, Hanna combines genuine thrills, unexpected complexity of character, and an unusual electronica soundtrack into an enthralling film. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Raised by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA agent, in the wilds of Finland, Hanna's 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, eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Cate Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart-pumping, exhilarating emotional journey August 3, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
What a terrific movie. A really likeable central character, whose coming-of-age journey is paralleled by a manhunt across Europe (where she is being hunted), during which she starts to learn more about the world and comes to reject violence. But that's not to say that the action scenes aren't thrilling stuff, and really enhanced by the wonderful score from the Chemical Brothers, which fits every scene in the movie where it's used (a lot of the time there's no background music, but when there is, it really adds to it) like a glove. Superb cinematography and beautiful directorial touches add what it takes to make the movie more than a clever thriller and elevate it to the status of art.

Be warned that not all of the plot is spelled out for you like in a typical Hollywood flick, so if you're not used to paying attention to subtlety, you might feel lost in the plot. If that happens, forget the plot and you'll still enjoy the movie for all of the above reasons.

No movie, however brilliant, will be treasured unless we feel we can make an emotional connection to the characters. Fortunately, Hanna won't disappoint there. We identify with Hanna and root for her, sympathise with Eric; we feel at home with the English tourist family, we hate Marissa with childlike passion, and Isaacs is all of our dark repulsions and fears covered by the thinnest social veneer. Even the old clown reminds us of some old uncle, even for those of us who never had uncles...

Wish I could give it 7 stars out of 5, but I'll just have to settle for actually watching it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, Nearly Philosophical Action Movie August 1, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
From the amazing acting of the vilianess Cate Blanchett to the 'Wristcutter's reminiscent whistling tune of Tom Hollander to the wonderful direction of Joe Wright- this film is a masterpiece. Then final moments- how the movie is brought full circle will leave you astounded, inspired, and feeling as if there is so much this world has to offer. This is the best movie I've seen all year. I would recommend it to anyone who would consider them self a stylistic, well rounded person. If you tend to like stylish indie flicks such as 'The Life Aquatic', 'Wristcutters', and 'Scott Pilgrim', you'll greatly enjoy and appreciate this film. If you're hesitant to buy this film because, like me, you aren't a fan of younger characters, buy it anyways. Saoirse Ronan has earned an Academy Award, as well as a Golden Globe to prove that she has what it takes to hold her own against the amazing talents of actors Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett. The latter should have won some sort of award for this. She's an excellent villain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and beautiful August 21, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
It's rare to see beautiful filmography in an action movie. And though it may be disingenuous to call this an action movie, it absolutely has the underpinnings of one and also has amazing visual artistic qualities.

The story itself is going to polarize audiences. There will be two types of viewers: The type that sees an odd action movie and the type that sees a philosophical statement on life. Either audience is going to see the action and novelty aspects, but, as a member of the second group, the movie touches on some very relatable, tender points regarding the early stages of life and coming of age.

The entire movie is wrapped around the vague notion of Grimm's fairy tales and though it doesn't attempt to draw any direct metaphors, they certainly allude to them along the way.

This is the first movie in almost 10 years that I've intentionally watched multiple times in the theatre. It's an experience and it's as enjoyable the second time as the first.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars No CGI? For shame. October 2, 2011
By T. Hunt
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Hanna is a 2011 action film directed by Joe Wright, (Atonement, The Soloist), and stars Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, and Cate Blanchett. In a nutshell, it's the story of a teenage girl named Hanna who has been raised by her father in a Finland forest. He has kept her completely severed from society and technology while raising her to be an assassin. The film follows her submergence into our world once she goes to task.

I read some of the negative reviews of this film before pulling the trigger and they actually pushed me towards the purchase. Most of the bleating came from people advising me that the first thirty minutes housed the only scenes of real value and that the film went flaccid for the next hour. That was exciting to me because I'm tired of watching car chases recycle themselves for hours on end while a soundtrack made up entirely of rapidly escalating explosions pounds like blistering techno until robots and/or trite superheroes show up and throw flaming meteorites at the scorched earth to attack/defend the human race. I'm just tired of that stuff.

But I still want action, and I got it. In proper dosage, even. The fight scenes choreographed for this film were presented at a heightened, but still reasonable human level and I appreciate that. The director clearly wanted to keep the film on a more realistic track for its duration and there's some beauty in that. The results were invigorating to me because I stayed connected which is a huge deal. It was well done.

That being said, the other elements in this film were also executed splendidly. And yes, the movie does slow down, but not in a bad way. A story develops, characters are introduced, and yes, I can live without gunfire for awhile while this all goes down. I just don't see the problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Violent
Didn't like the beginning of the movie so I didn't finish it. It was way too violent and didn't like the premise of a young girl being an assassin.
