Product Details

Product Description


Hanna has the plot of a Hollywood action blockbuster but the style of a European art movie--and this unholy hybrid is fascinating to watch. Hanna (Saoirse Ronan, The Lovely Bones) has been raised by her father (Eric Bana, Munich), an ex-covert agent, for one purpose: to murder the American agent, Marissa Wiegler (Cate Blanchett), who murdered Hanna's mother. Hanna thinks she succeeds and escapes, but she's actually being followed by Wiegler, who will go to any lengths to exterminate the girl. Hanna could have been little more than a tween reboot of La Femme Nikita, but in the hands of director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) the movie spends as much time on Hanna's budding relationship with a girl on holiday in Morocco as it does on Hanna's capacity to kill. Even the action scenes have atypical rhythms (and one violent sequence occurs in a long, sustained shot that will make film geeks squeal with glee). Hanna is visually sumptuous, emotionally delicate, and completely unlike any other action flick you'll see. The ending goes flat as disappointingly banal plot mechanics take hold, but up until then, Hanna combines genuine thrills, unexpected complexity of character, and an unusual electronica soundtrack into an enthralling film. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars A techno fairy tale July 29 2011
By Andre Farant TOP 500 REVIEWER
Hanna, played with complexity by Saoirse Ronan (Atonement), is no cape-wearing wannabe super-hero raised by her father to fight crime; she is more Jason Bourne than the X-Men's Rogue or Batman's Robin, and she has been raised and trained in total isolation. The first time we see her, she is hunting reindeer in a snowy wood. It is soon made clear that she is doing so not for sport but to feed herself and her father.

She lives with her father (Eric Bana) in a snow-capped cabin straight out of a fairytale, and this is no accident. Hanna, the movie, is a techno-fairytale, complete with a woodsman-like father, a princess with a secret mission, a lupine antagonist, a trio of trolls and, of course, a happy, friendly gnome. Modernism is provided not only by the plot but by a thumping, grinding and gleefully effective soundtrack by the Chemical Brothers; hyped up, Run Lola Run-style visuals; and Bourne-worthy action set pieces filmed with the art-house sensibilities of a director who knows how to balance style and substance, and knows when the former should be allowed to eclipse the latter.

To achieve innovation, to get something different from an action movie, the most effective thing a studio can do is hire a director who does not usually direct action movies. This is not to say that any director can or should be making action films. But directors like Christopher Nolan, Duncan Jones, Sam Raimi, and now Joe Wright, have shown that sometimes it isn't enough for studios and producers to think outside the box, that they might have to invite someone from the outside in and tell him to go ahead and rework the box entirely.

Hanna is an action film, but it refuses to be categorized as such, insisting that it feels just as comfortable slotted in with the art house crowd, the fish-out-of-water drama and, yes, the fairytale. Hanna is a deceptively inventive, enjoyably surprising, and ultimately entertaining film. I look forward to watching it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating adventure with many curves & turns Oct. 5 2012
A fascinating adventure ride that keeps the viewer guessing as you piece together the elements of the story. Unique plot, as the story of a spy thriller - with the protagonist being a child in early teenhood.

Great work of art with an intelligent storyline, with a certain gritty - real-worldliness to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too artsy to be enjoyed as a spy vs. spy Dec 5 2013
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Hanna (Saorirse Ronan) is raised in an aortic type of wilderness 9actualy Finland) to keep her safe from the outside world until she decides she is ready. Once she decides she is ready for the world it may not be the world she imagines.

We travel along with her as she learns about family, friendship and love. She also learns about her past and we speculate on her future.

The problem is this film is way to artsy to just be a shoot, slice and bludgeon them up. It spins more time on unique music that is much louder than the dialog. Pictures of vast panoramas that is inconsequential to the story.

The Blu-ray DVD extras are the standard how it is made and whet they are trying to say and do not quite get there. They even made the cabin as a work of art.

Look up Hanna!

3.0 out of 5 stars Hunting Hanna June 30 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I suppose this could be best described as a chase thriller. The casting is very good but the story line does require some suspension of belief. Saoirse Ronan is Hanna, a teenage girl raised by her father (Eric Bana) in complete isolation in a remote area of Finland and trained to be a killer. When her training is complete she is sent out into the world to kill Cate Blanchettt - an evil intelligence officer. Cate equally is trying to catch and kill her. The chase takes us from Morocco across Europe. As the movie comes to its dramatic conclusion Hanna discovers some shocking things about her life. The special effects are good and the movie draws you along well providing you don't study the story line too closely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful film! May 29 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Absolutely adore this movie. It is non-stop pacing. I love that the story unfolds in so many different and incredibly gorgeous locations. I love the powerful and independent female lead of Hanna. I even loved the soundtrack made entirely by The Chemical Brothers!
One of my favorite films for sure. A++

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than "Salt" March 16 2014
By Steve1
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I thought I'd have trouble suspending my disbelief about a 14-year-old girl beating the snot out of people, but the movie manages to make it plausible. A good example of the genre; no Bourne Identity, but worth watching if you like action/espionage movies.
