It is hard for me to put a finger on it; “Hanna” is a film that is so unbelievably simple and yet something about it sits so well in my eyes. To say “Hanna” resembles a Grimm fairy tale may seem odd, but it certainly is something that commands attention, as though you have been spellbound. I kind think of director Joe Wright’s creation as an union of several fairy tales or a excursion if you will that carries the sensibilities of a Luc Besson film. “Hanna” …

What to make of Hanna Heller (Saoirse Ronan)? She’s 16, pale blond, light blue eyes and has been raised since she was a few months old in the isolated, frigid forests of northern Finland. The things we begin to notice are the grimly serious hand-to-hand combat she and her father, Erik (Eric Bana) practice; the sneak attacks on each other and near-death blows; her knife skills and her bow and arrow expertise; her seriousness, her apparent lack of empathy, her high pain threshold; her relentless …

      I've always been a fan of movies involving conspiracy-theories and government cover ups and frankly the idea of combining that idea with imagery from the Grimm Fairy Tales is just delicious.  And so we have Hanna, a child who grows up much is the same way you'd imagine Bellatrix Kiddo from Kill Bill must have.      Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) is raised in the icy wilderness by her apparent father, the ex-spy, Erik Heller (Eric Bana).  Heller …

Holy Hanna!
HANNA   Written by Seth Lochhead and David Farr   Directed by Joe Wright   Starring Saiorse Ronan, Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett       Hanna: I just missed your heart.       As far as one can see, it is almost a complete blur of white. When the blowing snow passes, hundreds of trees reveal themselves. There is no noise to be heard except for that of pine needles rustling against each other and the occasional deer hoof …

Star Rating:         If you choose to view Hanna strictly as an action thriller, the film will work, since its premise lends itself so perfectly to the genre; it’s about a teenage girl, raised by her father to be an assassin, who has left home and is on a mission to survive. If you choose to view it as a modern-day fairy tale, it will work even better. Essentially, it’s the story of a young girl who lived a protected life and is now ready to grow up in the …

12A - 111mins - Action/Adventure/Mystery - 6th May 2011 Hanna is not only the story of a girl who you would definitely not like to meet down a dark alley but also one of discovery as she learns to live in the real world away from the restrictions and rigorous regime that her father has bestowed upon her. The story begins in the forests near the Arctic Circle where Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) lives with her ex-agent father Erik (Eric Bana) in solitude, hunting the animals and being trained by her …
