The story about Hanna (Saoirse Ronan), a girl who was brought-up to be perfect assassin. Raised and trained by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA agent, Hanna is sent out into the world on a mission. As she travels across Europe, Hanna is pursued by agents working for a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Cate Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence.
This is partly a super-girl film and will appeal to female teenagers, or possibly not, she really is sickeningly good at everything. Kills several armed guards at a time, speaks every European language and some others fluently, can survive in the Arctic tundra indefinitely. Her only flaw is that she is unfamiliar with hi-tech. This is shown in an scene which could be seen as comic or strangely could also be seen from her perspective as horrific.
At another level it is an action thriller of several adult characters, some of the fight scenes quite inventive and alternative. Some of the torture scenes I thought should have been 15 rated.
I thought Blanchett was not as intriguing as usual; her character is utterly ruthless and cold but that is about all it is. Not very engaging.
Ronan is a good child actor, but like a poodle that can stand on its back legs, one marvels to see it done at all well.
