Or will Hanna perish at the hands of Marissa, the woman that killed her mother? This is a fun and exciting film, I enjoyed it very much. This scores a 9 out of 10.
Acting – While I have watched Saoirse Ronan in recent films, to watch her from 9 years ago proves my thought – she has been a tremendous actress for some time. Her innocence is compelling, and her ability to complete her mission in any means necessary is just a blast to watch. I admit – I’ve become a huge Saoirse fan! No surprise that she was Nominated for a Saturn Award for this role. This movie also has the brilliance of Cate Blanchett as Marissa and Eric Bana as Erik Heller, Hanna’s father. These two’s interactive scenes are explosive and it’s no wonder they are among the elite in Hollywood. Score is 9 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 49 min. The action in this movie keeps it moving along well, there is never a dull moment. This gets a 9 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for Hanna – 27 out of 30
Recommended Watch – For an action film, with dramatic elements, I highly recommend pulling out this DVD, or finding it on VOD, and giving it a go. I think everyone would find this movie just thrilling in every way to watch.
