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'.

"A furious neck-snapping thriller that summons up memories of a dozen other movies and manages to improve on most of them."
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

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.

Having already long proven her acting chops, Ronan shows a bright future as a bona fide movie star.

While the plot has some minor flaws, the incredible performances, characters, soundtrack and action beats of Hanna more than make up for it.

The ingredients are there for success, but as we build toward resolution (or even increased conflict) Hanna fails to develop at a rate to match the sum of its parts.

Sometimes a gritty, unpolished, and decidedly European-style thriller is exactly what you're looking for.

[Joe] Wright is a natural successor to the late Anthony Minghella, able to deftly mix visual panache with small-scale emotion.

This cool, calculated who's-hunting-who piece brings home all the requisite tension, gunplay and fighting with a great deal of cinematic style.

Joe Wright leaves behind everything he has previously done. He seems hardened and full of fury, perhaps a response at the unfair way his The Soloist (2009) was received. Hanna is stripped-down, fast, and fantastic.

Hanna is a perfect example of visual filmmaking elevating a substandard story.

A kinetic action thriller of high quality, Hanna is as visually strong as it is emotionally engrossing, thanks to strong central performances and a welcome change of pace from director Joe Wright.

The entire thing - the whole weight of the movie - rests on the remarkable abilities of Saoirse Ronan ... she's an exceptional actor. She's one of a kind.

While you enjoy much of where Hanna is taking you, the destination is both bewildering and frustrating and, in retrospect, the path taken is extremely brutal.

While the performances are all strong, the real star here is Joe Wright's inspired direction, which transforms this action thriller into a modern fairytale.
Matthew Toomey
ABC Radio Brisbane
July 25, 2011
Hanna is an intriguing action-thriller that's best described as a cross between Run Lola Run and The Bourne Identity.

A top notch thriller, laced with suspense, action and a wonderful sense of mystery
Thomas Caldwell
Cinema Autopsy
July 18, 2011
An extraordinarily visceral and subjective film, brilliantly straddling the divide between art-house and action cinema.
