A superb thriller with an excellent Ronan

Marissa, did she turn out as you hoped?
Marissa: "Better."

I had no idea what to expect from this movie. I'm not the type that reads opinions upfront as a guide. Usually it's the opposite of what I thought anyway.

Hanna, beautifully played by Saoirse Ronan, was trained for years by her father in Finland to perform a task which is to liquidate Marissa Wiegler. This cold lady was the one who killed her mother because she had to make sure that there were no witnesses anymore of a secret experiment with DNA. An experiment in order to grow a superior human being. A kind of super-soldier. Hana was the last witness.
Well, that's the whole story in a nutshell. I also expected a kind of "Jason Bourne"-like spy thriller with lots of action and suspense. However, it didn'...

"Hanna" by Yojimbo

A retired spy who has trained his daughter in seclusion her entire life unleashes her upon the world to revenge herself upon the former handler who betrayed him and murdered her mother. It's the turn of teen photo love stories to be Bourne again in this girly-girl version of the action-spy movie. Hanna actually begins really strongly with some beautifully shot scenes set in an Arctic wilderness, but when Saoirse reaches the outside world it seems to become a teen travelogue featuring some awkwardly self conscious attempts at humour and a "my first kiss" soap opera. The whole tone of the film reminded me very much of a big budget kids' TV programme which does not sit well with some of the rather graphic violence that occurs at strategic intervals to remind us that we are not watching The ...

Hanna review

Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) is a 16-year-old girl under the watchful eye of her skilled ex-CIA father Erik Heller (Eric Bana). Marissa Wiegler (Cate Blanchett), a C.I.A. officer, is searching to kill Erik. The soundtrack, direction and action were fabulous. There were instances however that are difficult to believe such as riding a speeding vehicle in motion from below, super soldier concept and a kid having good memory without proper education. Nevertheless, despite some slow scenes and lack of a challenging antagonist, performances were solid (especially the potentially gifted Ronan) and fight scenes are enough to let Hanna entertain you with themes of origin and revenge. This reviewer feels its still not at par with the likes of Nikita and Leon.

More than just an action movie!

She is trained by her father into being a cold-blooded assassin for a mission and a destiny we would soon find out.

After seeing a plane fly overhead Hanna desire to see the world cannot be contained and Erik, realizing the time has come for Hanna to leave the nest shows Hanna a signaling device. After they activate a homing beacon, US marines flock to their house where they can locate only Hanna. They take her in for questioning to a top secret base in order to discover the whereabouts of her father but find ...

Hanna review

With so many remakes and prequels in movies in recent years, it is a nice change when an original script comes along, even if the plot has a few holes. The scenery kept me intrigued as the main character, a teenaged girl, is chased by agents who want to kill her and her father. Hanna is very seasoned beyond her years as her father has trained her to protect herself from anyone, but being isolated with only her father as company has resulted in Hanna not having developed social skills. It is comical to watch her interact with a boy who wants to kiss her. It is also moving to watch her develop a friendship with another teenaged female. The story does not detail why Hanna and her father have chosen to come out of hiding, but when they do the race is on to kill the agents on their trail in o...
