For a film that is supposed to be a thriller, the thrills are few and far in between. What "Hanna" really ends up being is a missed opportunity.

As a thriller, this strange, at times hypnotic, fable about a damaged little girl severely disappoints.

To me the film just didn't fit together. It doesn't really come together to make an action film.

Despite its 21st-century trappings and proto-feminist protagonist, Hanna strangely reverts to reactionary politics as usual.

Hanna sits between two audiences - arthouse and multiplex - and will disappoint both.

"Hanna" presents the problem of the well-made diversion that is, at its core, repellent.

While the sum of its parts do not add up, Saoirse Ronan shines brightly in this film.

When the beats and the color saturation fades, we're left with nothing but a very surface, very uninteresting story.

Fun in places but unfulfilling as a whole.

Wright never met a flashy edit or swirling camera move he didn't like.

'Hanna,' 'Salt' and 'Colombiana' should all merge together for a sequel.

Think La Femme Nikita facing down Bullwinkle Moose's Natasha Fatale, with breakneck running la Run Lola Run. Add in borrowed sets from Fellini, and voila! Hanna is served -- sadly, not as well as it should be.

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

Watching Hanna is like watching someone else play a really expensive video game...

The filmmakers struggle to satisfactorily connect the core driver of the story, a half hearted attempt at a sci fi element, into the plot, which leaves the film unable to articulate what it is that it wants to say

Saoirse Ronan is terrific. So is Cate Blanchett. But chase, chase, chase = No tension, no surprises. No fun.

...a movie that doesn't understand where its real power lies.

The forced coming-of-age parable that filmmaker Joe Wright laces with fairy-tale symbolism is heavy-handed from the get-go.

Funky, random and well shot, this action film about a girl (excellent Saoirse Ronan) trained to be an assassin gets a little overly-stylized and illogical for its own good.

This J.V. "Salt" is effective only for a few minutes at a time, in some occasionally ripping action scenes set to a vivid Chemical Brothers score.
