Hanna is about a girl that has been trained as an assassin by her father.

PLEASE REFRAIN FROM TEXTING DURING THE MOVIE!

The high point of the movie was when the guy sitting next to me finally got fed up with the girl sitting in front of me, and leaned down to insult her about her constant texting throughout the entire film. At which point her best friend and his best friend started arguing. Then the older gentleman sitting in front of the texting girl turned around and told all four of them to shut the hell up. Now THAT was entertainment!

NON SPOILER SUMMARY

Hanna is a 16 year old girl who has lived in the woods her entire life with her father. He has kept her hidden, and has trained her to be an assassin. When she is finally ready for her mission, she allows herself to be detained by the intelligence operative she means to kill. Alternating between hunting, and being hunted, Hanna travels across Europe and discovers the reasons her father raised her the way he did.

CIN’S REVIEW

I was all set for an action packed thriller with a strong female assassin to kick some ass! Yes, I was disappointed. Unfortunately, previews these days are made with the intention of drawing an audience, rather than to accurately portray what the movie is really about. Most of the movie was bogged down with Hanna taking in the new and beautiful world that she had never laid eyes on, and dealing with her social inadequacies. So, my recommendation is to spend your money on a more exciting movie and wait for this one to be released on DVD. But the music was good, and I finally bought the cool song (Container Park by The Chemical Brothers) from the trailer.
