Product Description

Award-winning director Joe Wright creates a boldly original suspense thriller with Hanna, starring Academy Award®-nominee Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones, Atonement) in the title role. Raised by her father (Eric Bana of Star Trek), an ex-CIA man, 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 while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Academy Award®-winner Cate Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.

  • Alternate ending
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Anatomy of a Scene: The Escape from Camp G

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

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.

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.

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.

This had been on my "want to see" list for some time, although I am not entirely sure why given that I am not a huge fan of action films. I finally decided to purchase the DVD and, by and large, enjoyed it and worked out why I wanted to see it. Although there is plenty of action, there is a lot of suspense and has an interesting back story. The fact that the film title is simply the lead character's name gives it an air of mystery.

I thought it did get off to a slowish start but once it got going, then it really got going. I thought the camera work did a great job in creating suspense and tension at the right times. I liked seeing Hanna try to adapt outside of her 'world' as it gave an idea of just how sheltered she had been and gave another side to her. I liked how there was a background story to this, so it was not all action. The cast were pretty good in this. Without giving too much away, I liked the fact that it all came full circle at the end.

An interesting film that I see myself watching from time to time. It is the sort of story that I like to read about and it was good to see something I would read on the small screen. For me, it was probably a good introduction into the action genre and appears to be original too.
