Storyline

Hanna (Saoirse 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, Erik Heller (Eric Bana), an ex-C.I.A. 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 ruthless intelligence operative, Marissa Wiegler (Cate Blanchett), who has secrets of her own. As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity. Written by Focus Features

Trivia

One of the two .22 target pistols in the movie is a Russian Margolin Olympic target pistol. The same type of pistol used as Princess Leia's blaster pistol in the Star Wars film franchise. The other pistol is a Luger .22, elements of which are found in Jyn Erso's A-180 modular blaster in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016). See more »

Goofs

When Hanna arrives in Morocco, she is able to seamlessly communicate with the hotel owner in Arabic. Due to the high levels of Berber influence in Moroccan Arabic, it can actually be difficult to understand for speakers of standard Arabic, which Hanna likely would have been trained in. See more »

Beautiful. Don't let the negative reviews repel.
30 November 2011 | by Joseph-StevensonSee all my reviews

I really wanted to watch this film but I didn't have the time when it was in theatres. So I recently treated myself to the Blu Ray copy. I decided to check the user reviews before watching it and was very surprised by the amount of negative feedback. The reviews were almost hate posts! So, I put the disc in with mixed expectations and afterwards, I sat, glued to the credits thinking "what was their problem?!" Truly a beautiful film. Don't set out expecting an action packed bad-ass picture (I think that was the problem with most of the negative reviewers). Though not as frequent as your everyday action film, the action scenes are just as exciting as ever. If you liked the fighting techniques in Taken, imagine a teenage girl pulling off moves just as hardcore, if not more. The visuals and sounds of the film are nothing short of artistic. I give it an 8 out of ten. Not the best film of 2011, but definitely not the worst.
