Movie Info

Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) is 16 years old. She is bright, inquisitive, and a devoted daughter. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a soldier; these come from being raised by her widowed father Erik (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of North Finland. Erik has taught Hanna to hunt, put her through extreme self-defense workouts, and home-schooled her with only an encyclopedia and a book of fairy tales. Hanna has been living a life unlike any other teenager; her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. But out in the world there is unfinished business for Hanna's family, and it is with a combination of pride and apprehension that Erik realizes his daughter can no longer be held back. -- (C) Focus Features

Critic Reviews for Hanna

All Critics (235) | Top Critics (68)

Even though there are misogynistic undercurrents to the fatal gunshot wound Hanna delivers... Weigler will never die because she lives on in Hanna, and her story will be retold and revised just like the fables women and girls pass on to one another.

The thing with Joe Wright's beautifully shot movie is that it never really feels true.

April 2, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Hanna is not just a sleek action movie (with a heart-pounding soundtrack), but it also has a soul that you don't want to part with.

September 8, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

This cool, calculated who's-hunting-who piece brings home all the requisite tension, gunplay and fighting with a great deal of cinematic style.

October 18, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Wright is capable of much better, as is everyone in the cast. He's trying to make a silky Euro thriller with a frisson of controversy. It's more like a never-ending trailer.

July 27, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Folklore undercurrents that prove initially spry and intriguing are soon rendered ... leadenly obvious.

Audience Reviews for Hanna

This average thriller with tones of fairy tale features stylish editing and an electrifying score, and it is particularly efficient in the exciting fighting and action scenes but not so interesting when showing the character's adaptation in a world she only knew via an encyclopedia.

One can't but feel sorry for Hanna - who's whole reason for being is to avenge her mother's murder.
