Storyline

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

Goofs

In the extended conversation in bed between Hanna and her new friend, they are supposedly talking face-to-face because we see the back side of the other's head, however as the camera switches between them they are both shown lying on their left side making talking face-to-face impossible.

the review that writes itself
7 September 2015 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

By an odd coincidence in the same year this film was released another film of a similar type came out, Columbiana.

Both at their core are stories of young women in a life they do not want doing things to people they do like. Neither is an Oscar winner, nor even near Oscar territory.

Hana has an astonishing cast. Ronan found an chance to let audiences around the world learn she can hold the camera with those amazing eyes of hers. Bana never gave a bad performance in his life. Blanchett however treated us to the worst American "accent" in the history of film and a character overall that had no credibility. Not her fault. It was written that way.

But I digress.

The point is that if you are going to try to do one of these films, than don't outthink the audience or yourself. Just do it. Columbiana with a lesser known cast (and less of a following) is the far superior film.

HANNA gets an A for effort, but seriously at some level in Hollywood the people paying the bills should insist on reading the script before they start writing checks.
