           Child assassins. Not your normal basis for a movie. But that is what you get with the movie HANNA. A great trippy action movie that is part Bourne and part independent art house film.
        Hanna stars Saoirse Roanan (Lovely Bones). She is the daughter of a rogue CIA agent played by Eric Bana (The Hulk). The lovely father/daughter killing team lives off the grid in the artic circle where they have no electricity and hunt their own food. In the fact the chillin first scene where Hanna shots and kills a deer is the perfect set up for whats about to come. 
I cant give away too much about why they are living in the Artic Circle without giving away the whole movie plot and suprises. But the bottom line is daddy leaves, daughter is captured, daughter escapes from CIA custody and beats up everyone her way to Germany.  She is being hunted down by evil CIA agent who wants to capture her played Cate Blanchett. Hanna is one amazing movie. It is fast paced, full of surprises and Ronan does an outstanding job in the lead role. Plus the movie soundtrack is one of the best ever, by The Chemical Brothers.

Final Verdict: Worth owning.


  1. I kinda wanted to see it but now that i know what it is about i really wanna see it.

  2. OK, so, I love everything i've seen that has come from focus features. They know what they're doing over there, and I knew right away that I HAD to see their new movie, annnnd IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL!!! i loved everything about this movie! i laughed, cried, and was transported! this movie took me to another place. It brought me to a higher level of existence. I was a part of something. Something legendary. There were parts that were so beautiful, authentic, and human, there were parts that were very violent, there were parts that were laugh out loud funny! this movie comments on many different issues we deal with today, like the role of technology in our lives, the way culture is devolving, God and religion, the blank slate vs. inherency psychological debate, and it explores many other different facets of human nature. There is nothing bad I can say about it. This movie aimed right for my heart, and did not miss. Go see it now people!!!!!!
