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.
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

It was wonderfully entertaining. It was about getting rid of bad guys. The characters are well done and I really connected emotionally with the father and daughter. Saoirse Ronan was amazing in this (and has since gone off and done even more amazing things).
The pace is slow but stays interesting. Clearly, the well-honed assassin was going to do something great (not awful). The spectacular cinematography is compelling while the story slowly builds to the point. The camera angles, changes in perspective, and lighting jumped out as particularly artistic.
Once the story gets to the point, the fight scenes were well done and kept real (no silly Kung Fu) but I had come to expect that Hanna would be a little more decisive in her battles. For all that training and being the perfect assassin, the fights lasted too long. The SIGNIFICANTLY less capable bad guys shouldn’t have lasted more than a few seconds. I accepted the premise that she was a highly honed weapon and suspended belief. The director/writers didn’t for some reason and went too far trying to make it too real.
But getting passed that disappointment, the chase, interspersed with character development and fight scenes, is suspenseful and entertaining. It has flaws, some quite irritating, but I still liked it. I wasn't inspired but I was entertained.
a single father raising his young daughter to live and hunt on the frozen and snowy land
a day to day thing, he teaches her to not let any animal go or she has lost
and once its dead, make sure of it, don't assume anything
one day, he decides she is ready and put a flip switch and a blinking red light on the table
and tells her when your ready and you want to be on your own, make sure
its what you want, because when flip that switch, there is a signal sent to where you are
and she will never stop looking for you, one day he wants to going hunting and he ask her(HANNA)
would you liker to go hunting with me today, she tells him, if you would like
he in return says, its up to you, what do you ant to do? she replies no, i will stay inside
he goes out by himself and she comes close to flipping that switch , because she wants to make sure
in heart she want to really leave, by the time he gets back, Hanna is gone, so he starts searching outside and he finds her
and he brings her back and tells her to meet him in Germany and gives her the address,
so the movie is runs with this adventure almost , and finally at the end they do meet in in Germany,
but things has changed for the both of them, hanna has found out who her real mother is and what happened to her
she really don't know what life out side of her current surrounds are, whats life?
there is a lot of news to be heard in the show and you will see care blanchett in a whole new way
there is lots of action,hand to hand combat and you will have lots of questions through out the movie
that you might get answers for at the end, but i will give you one small (SPOILER ALERT)
something that happens at the very first of the movie almost ends the same way
you want be sorry you watched this movie if you can stick with the story line, its not boring, its just slow at times
Acting wise, Hanna has a delight cast of characters that emote their respective figures with surrealistic zeal. Saoirse Ronan makes for a deadly killer and a sweet heroine. She is fierce and believable as a spy, while also conveying Hanna's childish nature. Eric Bana is at his best as Hanna's tough, yet kind father. He is very cool as a spy. Cate Blanchett and Tom Hollander are two of the creepiest villains in film history. They will unsettle and threaten you. All in all, Hanna has a well cast ensemble.
Musically, Hanna is exciting and loud with a fresh electronic score from The Chemical Brothers. The bass will blast, the synths will reverberate, and the themes will soar into your ears. Hanna's soundtrack is quite memorable. I have not felt such thrills in a spy thriller since The Bourne Trilogy.
In short, Joe Wright's innovative direction focuses this neat narrative into a non-stop feature. The lovely Saoirse Ronan will captivate you throughout Hanna. You will root for her to triumph. Sit back and enjoy the music, action, acting, and direction. Hanna is divine!
rather unempathetic genetically engineered girl who doesn't want to hurt anybody but.. if you force me. she is not as frightening as "Morgan,' but just as thorough, just as dangerous in the long run. The performance of Tom Hollander is the counter weight to Cate Blanchett. She is poorly cast here, why not just get an American who does a southern accent if you must have that. It is badly drawn. His character is frightening, a memorable badguy, all the worst attributes of Gemans rolled up into one little phsycopath. His pursuit of Hanna is disturbing.
Eric Bana is very good in this movie. I found him as convincing as he was in Munich, maybe more so, a simple performance but
complex in the confusion he feels about his role with Hanna.
