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 Featuresmore

Critic Reviews for Hanna

All Critics (212) | Top Critics (44)

Meticulously composed mayhem without a larger purpose, too glum to provide any base genre satisfactions.

Philadelphia Weekly

not terrible, but not great

It's like an amusement park ride operating in the middle of a rave in which The Chemical Brothers provide a no-one-gets-out-alive thrust of unimpeded propulsion.

Jason Bourne meets Run Lola Run in a movie that brings terrifying new meaning to 'child abuse'.

Concrete Playground

"A furious neck-snapping thriller that summons up memories of a dozen other movies and manages to improve on most of them."

Tribune News Service

Teenage assassin trained as a killing machine since birth? Unless your movie has Nicolas Cage dressed like Batman with a paedo-tache, you're fighting a losing battle from the start.

Audience Reviews for Hanna

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

Super Reviewer


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

Red Lats

Super Reviewer


The most underrated action film of the last decade.
