An action-packed suspense-thriller starring Academy Award® nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, The Lovely Bones), Hanna is “an exuberant chase thriller that pulses with energy!” (Justin Chang, Variety). Raised by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA agent, in the wilds of Finland, Hanna’s 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, eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence, in a movie critics are calling “exhilarating, audacious and boldly original!” (Karen Durbin, Elle)

Because so many people panned it on here I thought I'd give it a try, see if maybe it would be another Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford - disparaged by the masses and lauded by...others...not seeking predictable formulaic Hollywood...formulae. I also rented it because Saoirse Ronan is one of my most admired actors. I wasn't dazzled. Neither the movie nor the performances (not even Ms. Ronan's) connected with me. The actor who impressed me most was Jessica Barden - I thought her performance was pretty masterful. I do also appreciate Tom Hollander playing those ice-cold, murderous dorks (I'm sure I've seen him play one at least once before). But nothing else about the movie much grabbed me - it had elements that would have been appealing to me had they been handled differently, but that, the way they actually were handled, consistently missed the mark for me. It seems to me I've heard and liked Chemical Brothers music in the past - maybe their first big album - but this soundtrack was like the rest of the movie for me: a bunch of sounds appealing in their raw form, combined in a way as to leave me cold. I guess if I was to sum up the experience in one word, it would be "dissonant". And thus disappointing.
This movie is amazing happy They made it which they will make a point to
enjoyed so much; especially about the scenic setting, of course, their acting is absolutely perfect
I loved the acting and am impressed with the plot. A must see movie.
Cate is a real hottie😜owo would recommend
I absolutely love the little actress Hanna: Saoirse Ronan. She is amazing! I always watch this movie every time I remember it, and now, I decided to buy it, instead of streaming or renting it. I was looking forward to ‘Hanna 2’ but it never happened 🙁 I will still rewatch this classic monthly now💕
Stuff happens, then it's over. Throughout the film I kept expecting more. The resolution is obvious from the moment the villain is introduced and when it's done, so what? This is a waste of money. There's a reason why it tanked at the box office. When it's done one wonders why this merited 90 minutes of your time.
Parts of this movie are done well like the music and noises being woven into the action on the screen. Most of this movie, however is just pointless. It felt like continuous action scenes broken up by drama that went nowhere. The girl lives but everyone else dies. Was there something redeaming in there I missed? I doubt it and am glad I rented it
This movie had so much potential. First 20 min was amazing, but the overarching plot built to house everything was absolutely terrible. There was one good fight later in a train station but that's about it.
I remember seeing this because of positive reviews and I just didn't find anything really memorable. The story isn't particularly compelling or believable for that matter. Sorry to sound that way but this movie is just mediocre, very middle of the road. Not terrible but I certainly wouldn't recommend it.
Probably the worst movie I’ve watched in 15 years!! And considering I love Eric & Cate; that’s saying something. Look elsewhere!!!!
Hanna is a great action film with style, reminding me of Run Lola Run with the fast paced tone and the upbeat electronic music. The actors are great and it is a well executed film filled with tension.
I enjoyed this movie. Some will like and some won't just like every other movie with reviews
One of the most annoying movies I've seen. It tries to be arty and attempts to rip off a few Tarantino riffs, but falls flat. Suspension of disbelief is impossible due to the stunts being so sloppy and poorly choreographed. Similar thing with the plot. Glaring inconsistencies, incongruities and loose ends everywhere. I thought Blanchett was supposed to be good but she looks like an amateur here (although to be fair she didn't have much to work with). I have no idea how Bana got roped into this one; maybe the screenplay looked promising (but a thorough read would surely have revealed the flaws). The music was out of place and its only benefit was to take your mind off the story. I rarely sledge a movie, preferring to focus on the good bits, but this one prompted me to sign up to IMDB just to write a review. Maybe it's because it looked so interesting in the previews that it was so irritating to actually watch.
Best movie I've seen in a long time. A must see!
I love this movie but it is so high priced!!
Really great movie!! Well acted! Original! Really worth watching! I loved it
If ur going to a school Camp and your aloud to bring phones then you should definetly download this movie onto your Apple Device :D Just don't let the teachers see....
Had no prior knowledge of this movie before renting. Turns out to be one of the best action films out at the moment. This movie is very understated and I can definately recommend seeing it!
Wasn't disappoint with a full purchase, can't explain what it is I like about this but looks like a low budget big name film and just works
Most of the action is in the trailer. There's lots of pointless running about and a very boring plot. Predictable ending - Watch out for sequels...
Really, really enjoyed this. Wish I'd bought instead of renting it!
I love this a very good film get it now
A friend of mine saw this film and kept telling me about it so decided to give it a go last night. took a little while to get going but once it does - packs a punch. The soundtrack is perfect - especially Hanna's Theme - Vocal Version. Is a beautiful film - recommend.
First of all I don't understand what Cate Blanchett doing in this movie. She is a quality actress in very low quality movie. Also I can't understand where those good reviews come from. Has someone been paid for it? Movie is boring, low budget, without any sense and logic. Honestly I am so angry for the fact that I have wasted two hours of my life.
This is one of the worst films Ive seen in a long time. The story line is poor and the reason for Hanna's existance is not really explored. It was long winded and to be truthful boring. You could actually work out what would happen in the next scene. Its is a film to rent if your desperate but be prepared to fall asleep whilst watching.
This is by far the best film I've seen. It has a truly entrancing score by the chemical brothers no less. The story line is wonderful as well, it's about a young girls venture to find herself meanwhile she's caught up in this huge… well to avoid any spoilers someone wants her and her father dead. It's just an amazing, well shot film with fantastic music to go with it. It's s must buy and it is by no means a mindless action film.
WTF????????? no idea, visually ok looking, young lass was great, Cates wigs were obviously wigs. her accent amazingly bad, WTF????? money back itunes!
I'm very open minded about all film genres and very rarely write negative reviews, but this film had nothing. It's awful. Dreadful and so boring. The storyline is non existent, the plot is wafer thin (and that's being polite) and I have never been so bored throughout an entire film. So many better films out there. Avoid this cheap rubbish.
it is truly amazing! such a good story, inspirational! *****
El lamo. Complete snorefest.
Good just needed more of a story.
fantastic first 20 minutes, then this just falls away into stereotypical nonsense. great shame for such a good plot. felt ripped off paying top dollar for this.
Story, Locations, Cinematography, Soundtrack, and last but not least the actors... all turn this movie into a stunning piece of work. 2012 moviemaking at its best and the best movie I have seen in a long time.
saw this movie on the big screen , great story and action , Ronan is fantastic as she was in Lovely Bones going to watch it at home on the big screen
An interesting film with some great action scenes in it. Although I have seen quite alot of movies with a similar story line, Hanna seems to execute it well. Not to mention an awesome soundtrack, Hanna is a great watch!
Awesome !!!! Go for it
This film is chocca with action. Loved every minute. Ronan is one talented actress and Bana does a brilliant job.
I saw this on a Quantas flight, so I imagine it would be much better on a bigger screen (where you can actually see the dark scenes). Even so, I really enjoyed it - lots of good action scenes and a great storyline. I'd give it 5 but there were some cheesy unrealistic bits that I personally didn't feel matched well with the rest of the movie.
