Hanna Movie Review


Grade: C-

This movie starts out with an interesting storyline.  In the frozen wilderness, a man raises his daughter to be a well trained assassin.  He is preparing her for a mission where she must kill or be killed.  Kind of a Bourne Identity...meets 16 year old girl.

If only they had continued to develop that initial premise.  Once Hanna is dropped into civilizations, the director quickly gets caught up in artsy-fartsy camera angles and the story strays all over the place, leaving in it's wake a lot of innocent dead bystanders.  It just becomes lost and very, very sad.

The only saving grace was the young actress, Saoirse Ronan who plays Hanna.  She is quite mesmerizing and lovely on camera.

But, let's be honest, this movie just isn't worth the effort.  Save your money both now and when it come on NetFlicks.  Just don't bother with this movie.
