I think Hanna is elevated a lot by Saoirse Ronan's performance. She is superb at playing innocence with those big eyes, but can also be intimidating and scary when she needs to be. Eric Bana was also great in his sequences. There was some heart behind his character that worked as a nice contrast to his tough-as-nails exterior. Care Blanchett made a horrible choice to try on a southern accent. It was in and out through the whole movie. Otherwise she was excellent as the primary villain.
The action sequences were done really well. It felt authentic despite the fact that you knew there was choreography in it. I also loved the shot selection, it helped to make it clear what was going on in all the fast-paced action. There were some amazingly beautiful shots in the slower moments, too. There was just one moment that drove me absolutely insane because it was set up all wrong and all I could think was "Why didn't anyone catch this?!"
I have to hand it to Joe Wright because not many directors could transition from the kind of dramas he worked on into this kind of action film. While it might not have been built on the most original script, Hanna is a movie that I had fun watching. There were two sequences in particular that I found very memorable, and that final shot (and dialogue) was a great payoff framing the film in just the right way. Hanna may not be an all-time favorite but it's quite well made.
Livello di badassismo molto alto, da parte di tutti.
E c'Ŕ Cate Blanchett, perci˛ va visto comunque.
