Hanna is a first-rate action thriller which centers around a teenage girl who has grown up in the remote wilds of Finland. Trained as an assassin from an early age by her ex-CIA father, she has been prepared for something.
One moment a fierce adult, the next an innocent child, Hanna is a well-written character played superbly by seventeen-year-old Irish actress Saoirse Ronan. With this film, Ronan builds on her successful roles in Atonement and The Lovely Bones.
Propelled by a heart-pounding score by the Chemical Brothers, with an excellent supporting cast which includes Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana, this film is fast-paced and exciting.
