HANNA (Joe Wright)
Think BOURNE meets EVELYN SALT.
The score by The Chemical Brothers, Cate Blanchett's menacing accent and that dreaded hairdo circa Indiana Jones, and Saoirse Ronan's adaptive portrayal of a deadly killer are all nice, but the script of HANNA needs a little more polishing. Joe Wright's direction is uneven for me, and the events become more and more implausible as the film progresses.
Since HANNA is marketed as a action thrill ride cum revenge movie, Wright could have gone all out with the fight scenes. I was left hanging by the end, and I have to say the government experimentation on human beings plot becomes pretty tiring by this time.
I've seen Saoirse Ronan in better movies.
