False Marissa


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?


The song being played as the performers in the Safari Club rehearse, and while Isaacs and Marissa Wiegler talk, is "The Devil Is in the Details" by The Chemical Brothers. Isaacs actually references the song title during the dialogue. See more »


The aircraft that Hanna sees flying over the cabin was a Lockheed C-130 Hercules. These aircraft have turboprop engines which use the exhaust of gas turbines to turn the propellers and that sound almost like a normal jet engines with a bit of a buzz from the propellers. The scene in question, however, clearly features the sound of piston engines. See more »

Simple action movie with a 16 yr old girl, but still has enough substance
19 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wasn't super hyped to see this when I first saw the trailer to this in theater but it got me intrigued. Especially how it goes in a direction where a little girl doing action sequences didn't seem lame at all, in fact some sequences was pretty darn cool. They way it reveals what is going on bit by bit was nicely done without giving away exactly and completely what the movie is about in the beginning. Good character driven movie with some good action sequences with a slight artistic cinematography. What is great about this movie is that it isn't just straight forward action movie. Even the soundtrack doesn't have the typical generic action movie style soundtrack, in fact the soundtrack is great. The masses might find this movie to be a bit awkward because it doesn't have the generic action movie feel to it. The plot isn't spectacular but somewhat absorbing. Saoirse Ronan was sometimes mesmerizing with her acting and I buy into her situation in the movie while she was playing Hanna and I wouldn't be shocked if there is a bright future for her in the acting business. However if your one of those audiences that is expecting constant action might be left disappointed. But when it comes to action it shows that you don't need a lot of CGI to make some cool action sequences. And the movie might be a bit slow at times, especially in the middle but overall it's a character driven movie with action in it that is worth seeing. It's a simple story but has just enough substance.
