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.
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.Read more ›
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.

One of my favorite films. The sweet, innocent-looking young girl who kicks ass!Published 5 days ago by Chuck Wissing
Great performance by Saoirse Ronan (Hanna). The set-up of the character was good; the "traveling (Morocco)" which is the middle part of the movie, was uninteresting. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Fallen Angel 5193
