Movie Reviews: HANNA

Hanna is movie about a girl who is trained from birth to be a killer. There is quite a lot of imagery and generalized angst and suspense. It would have been a great show...if they'd done the ending a tad differently. And maybe skipped the part with the nice guy hanging upside down, shot through with several arrows. I can't say more without giving away the entire plot.
Still of Saoirse Ronan in Hanna
The new girl, Saoirse Ronan does a great job, as does Kate Blanchett. The acting is not the weak part of this film, it's all plot. It tries to be Borne Identity but it doesn't have Robert Ludlum to develop the story line.  They did do a really nice job with over-the-top and in-your-face imagery, though. The circular ice flow at the beginning kinda gives away the ending. Just say'n. Obvious from the start, even though you spend the entire movie hoping for a different outcome.
Bottom Line:2 1/2 stars. Wait for it to show up in NetFlix Instant Play.
