Hanna (Ronan) is a teenage girl. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the skills of a soldier; these come from being raised by her father (Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland. Living a life unlike any other teenager, her 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 (Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity. Written by Focus Features

Did You Know?


Alfonso Cuarón was rumored to be circling the project just weeks before Joe Wright signed on to direct. See more »


Erik decides to swim from Sweden to Denmark across the strait between them (Øresund), presumable to avoid border checks. But not only are both Denmark and Sweden (as well as Finland) members of the EU and also part of the Schengen Area, he could have traveled uninterrupted by land or sea from Finland to Denmark due to the Nordic Passport Union, using public transport. His method of entering seems a bit odd, as he later in the film arrives in Berlin by bus. See more »

Not what I expected but .... WOW!
29 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

A friend got me tickets to an advance screening, telling me it was a spy thriller with Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett. I hadn't seen a trailer and was expecting something along the lines of Mission Impossible. Was I wrong.

I'm not great at doing reviews, but I feel I need to say something about this amazing movie! During it, I was very aware at how engrossed I was, hanging on every scene. It was visually stunning - some of the scenes or transitions between them were so beautiful. The title "HANNA" on the screen reminded me a lot of Kill Bill. In fact, I felt Saoirse Ronan's Hanna is a teenage version of The Bride from Kill Bill and Leeloo from The Fifth Element.

I've seen Cate Blanchett in a couple of movies, but was impressed by her portrayal of a ruthless agent. I hate to say that Eric Bana's character (Erik) was "almost" forgettable - in the end, the movie was really not about him. But he did show up once wet and without much clothing and that was just fine by me.

I am not a fan of violence (and Tarantino's bugs me a lot), but I was OK with the quantity and visibility of it in this movie. Fans of Kill Bill should enjoy Hanna.
