From Amazon.co.uk

With a career built on prestige period dramas like Atonement and Pride & Prejudice, Joe Wright has given Hanna, his first foray into the action genre, the same mannered house style--turning a potential career left-turn into something of a busman's holiday. Saoirse Ronan plays Hanna, a home-schooled teen assassin who can take out out a pack of government agents like she's making a wish. She is being prepared by her black-ops father (Eric Bana) for a showdown with the CIA spy-catcher (Cate Blanchett) that murdered her mother and forced them into the icy wilds of northern Finland. When the time comes, Hanna re-enters civilisation with wide-eyed curiosity--she's never encountered music, TV or even a light switch before--and, as designed, these petals of innocence only intensify the moment when her sabre-toothed killing skills are unleashed to a thumping score by The Chemical Brothers. But just as the film is about to settle, Bourne-style, into the familiar tracks of an identity quest, Hanna veers off in search of a different kind of self-knowledge, and the middle third of the film is a folksy coming-of-age travel diary in which Hanna, drifting through the Moroccan countryside, experiences music, friendship and the open road. Fortunately, the slower scenes are carried by a strong cast: Saoirse Ronan has a wraithlike physical charisma, while Tom Hollander (The Thick of It) is pure venom as the Euro-trash sadist employed to hunt her down. The film's action-packed final lap, set in the ruins of a Brothers Grimm-themed amusement park, feels like all the corruption and cruelty of the world being reduced to wreckage at the bare hands of a willowy teenage girl. --Leo Batchelor

Product Description

Joe Wright directs this adventure thriller starring Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana. Raised deep in the Finnish wilderness by her ex-CIA agent father Erik (Bana), Hanna (Ronan) has been carefully trained throughout her childhood to become the perfect assassin. Now in her teens, she is finally judged by her father to be ready to be sent out on a mission, and she sets out across Europe to carry out her deadly assignment. On her trail is Marissa Wiegler (Blanchett), a ruthless intelligence agent with a few dark secrets of her own.

By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Hanna turned out to be a brilliant watch for many reasons. It was a funny, actions packed, looked great and had a pumping sound track by the Dust Brothers, now better known as the Chemical Brothers.

As the name suggests the story revolves around Hanna. A young girl raised in isolation who has been government trained to kill. Eric Banna plays the father, who turned rogue agent and escaped with her to save her from a life as a government assassin.

However, Hannah comes of age and wants to experience the world outside the woods for herself and a chain of events are set off that see Hannah travel round the globe trying to escape the clutches of head of programme, Cate Blanchett.

The acting is solid throughout from all of the 3 main cast members and the look Nd feel of the film is distinctly German and industrial. Chemical Brothers' sound track adds to the German feel of the film and the action comes thick and fast and handled brilliantly.

What was a real surprise though, was how well the rest of the film was handled though. Scenes of Hanna trying to make friends and make sense of the world outside that which she had known all her life was both touching, poignant and at times down right funny.

The parts of her travelling across Europe with experiencing everything life had to offer for the first time were handled with sensitivity and, I thought, real understanding. Yet at the same time, scenes of her kicking arse where brutal and unflinching.

Hanna was a thoroughly enjoyable film that ticked all boxes and I thought it was a very descent attempt at giving a familiar theme (The genetically modified killer) a slightly new twist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hanna: An extremely good surprise 26 Mar 2014
Format:DVD
When I first read the plot for Hanna, I was sceptical about how well this movie would be able to compete with other action movies, as it didn't use a well known story or a star cast, but it was a pleasant surprise when I watched it. I would definitely recommend this film to someone who has watched all the well known action films, and wants to experience something that is a different genre all together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, simply excellent 25 Jan 2012
By Lark TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I've no idea why this film has had such poor reviews from some viewers or has turned out to be so polarising but it would appear to be one of those features which you either spectacularly love or loath.

I have to say I absolutely loved it. The plot is simple enough but while parallels can be drawn with the Bourne films' identity crisis motif it is a very different feature. Jason Bourne/David Webb was an adult who was engineered into some sort of super soldier by participating in a strange government behaviourist-psychological mind control experiment. Hanna is younger, ignorant of being a legacy of a similar project and living in the wilderness, there is no need to recover memories or resolve a crisis of identity. Instead the driving force in leaving the wilderness is a desire to experience life more fully and directly than what can be told from the sources available at hand to her and her mentor/watcher.

There are so many excellent themes in this film which are only partically touched upon due to time, pace and requirement to progress the plot onwards to its conclusion. They remain none the less excellent. For instance the interactions between Hanna as a socially isolated and consequently socially maladapted person with the precocious child of bohemian liberal parents. The scene where she is in awe of electric light and then overwhelmed by all the disturbing noise created by the TV, telephone, kettle and other mod cons in concert.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow burner 7 Mar 2012
By T. Cosens TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Hanna is a tricky film to break and will probably be the complete opposite of what you expect. Anyone looking for another teen assassin in the mould of Kick Ass' Hit Girl will be sorely dissapointed. This is a slow methodical story about an unusual girl who has been trained all her life for combat. She is a blank canvas when it comes to emotions, she has no understanding of social situations and once she is plunged into the real world, she starts to realise there is something different about her.

The story is a mix of drama and thriller with a hint of some sci-fi elements thrown in for good measure. Once the main exposition is over with and Hanna lets herself be captured, the story picks up pace and we start to see a softer side to what is essentially a vunerable young girl. She creates a tentative friendship with another girl which soon sours when Hanna's true abilities are revealed. Pieces of her own puzzle start to fall into place and she realises that she is alone in this world and will have to fight to survive.

The grimy slightly bleached out look of the film serves to create and maintain a cold, isolating atmosphere. You never feel truly comfortable watching this film, it certainly does not draw you in in the traditional sense. The action is handled well and has the usual gritty realism to it without ever being gratuitous or gory. All the actors are well cast, however Eric Banna's character felt slightly under used. The story is fairly basic and you will have probably guessed whats going on at quite an early stage, but it is well written and does not detract from the overall experience.

Joe Wright is really starting to make a mark on the industry. Atonement showed the deft skill he has with a camera and how he sets a scene is second to none.
