Hanna - Movie Review

Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett star in Hanna, a thriller directed by Joe Wright. Hanna (Ronan) is the daughter of a rouge CIA operative (Bana) who was raised to be the perfect soldier - stronger, faster, fearless. Hanna's father has trained her to be the perfect assassin and to go to Germany and kill Marissa (Blanchett), the person who was in charge of the project to create the perfect soldiers.

The movie was very intense, and Saoirse Ronan did a brilliant job in this physically demanding role. It was thrilling to watch the chase but a lot of things go unexplained so it doesn't feel like the whole story has been told. One was why did Marissa put an end to the project? What happens to Hanna in the end? So many questions! I enjoyed the movie. It was enthralling and the more you watch Hanna, the more layers you see of her as she learns how to survive in the real world.

Hanna comes out in theatres this Friday, April 8th.
