Rated PG-13 · 111 min. · 2011

Action/Adventure, Suspense/Thriller


This isn't merely a departure from director Joe Wright's mannered filmography (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice). It feels more like his antidote for it. A stylized fable whose substance doesn't measure up to its resounding razzmatazz, Hanna is a blend of breathless chase thriller and fairy tale conceit. The result is not without success. For all its Grimm allegory, the film is like an alt-universe continuum of Luc Besson's The Professional filtered into the visual stylings of Run Lola Run. (Hanna's final act is also set in Berlin.) Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett star.
