The 'perfectly engineered soldier' theme is nothing new, but Wright is less concerned about that. Hanna is a beautifully crafted, smart, funny film that floats above its genre conventions.

Perhaps Hanna is a good film because the action is part of the narrative rather than the narrative being a part of the action.

Even though there are misogynistic undercurrents to the fatal gunshot wound Hanna delivers... Weigler will never die because she lives on in Hanna, and her story will be retold and revised just like the fables women and girls pass on to one another.

Tries so hard to be edgy and different that desperation trumps the minor intrigue brought about by bizarre characters and situations.

Never quite gels into a cohesive cinematic experience and is, far too often, simply boring.

We walk out of it with more questions than anything else, which can sometimes be a film's strength ... but that's not the case here.

Ostensibly a thriller about a teenage assassin, Hanna reveals itself to be a fairytale with a modern twist.

A unique, often strange take on both an action film and a growing-up story

Explosive, intense, heart pounding, riveting, pulsating...and these are just a few of the adjectives to describe Hanna.

A sleek, willfully preposterous action movie...This is a rare action movie where women rule.

The deeper the story gets, the more convoluted and preposterous it becomes. Still, "Hanna" is a lot of fun, thanks to Ronan and two great action sequences.

The thing with Joe Wright's beautifully shot movie is that it never really feels true.

Overall, Saoirse Ronan is a marvelous, powerful actress and Hanna is a great character. Perhaps a sequel to the film Hanna will have a script worthier of both.

Hanna is a pulse-pounding, lethal fairy-tale actioner.

The soundtrack by the Chemical Brothers is outstanding. It makes the film look rather like a series of music videos, but so well shot and energetic, the viewer doesn't really mind.

A dark, twisted fairy tale. 'I just missed your heart,' Hanna says to an elk she shoots at the beginning of the film. The film itself, however, is almost right on target.

A perfect package of pulsating chills and pulpy thrills.

Beautifully shot sequences and little character moments kept me leaning forward in excitement.
