Hanna

Critics Consensus

A gritty reimagining of the 2011 film, Hanna adds new wrinkles to the mythology and texture to the titular assassin -- though the series' long-winded journey may try the patience of viewers who want their violent fables concise.

Critic Reviews for Hanna Season 1

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (14)

The rare intelligent action thriller that subverts storytelling tropes and surfs on its own ingenuity. In other scenes, that ingenuity gets lost in a mood board of decorative visuals that bloat its running time and hobble its pace.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the more maddening examples in recent film adapting, and not just because it's so similar to its singular 2011 parent, Joe Wright's Hanna.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Creed-Miles is the best thing about the series; the actor shoulders nearly every scene, and manages to make the taciturn and seemingly affectless Hanna expressive and achingly relatable.

A gritty and serious approach to a story that could be supremely ridiculous.

For the moment, we seem to find ourselves in front of a hit. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feb 26, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The TV version of Hanna tries to strike a balance between coming-of-age drama and action thriller, but only the former feels successful.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

This was a drama which left Hannah, and us, hanging in space and going nowhere.

Aug 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The series is a winner, the scripts are excellent, the direction is crisp and all the actors are at the top of their game.

Jun 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The series is more brutal than the film, more "today" but to me, a major fan of the film, it lacks its dynamic tension, there's a certain flatness, even if the story's worthy. Season two is a go.

Apr 19, 2019 | Full Review…

The series is fine. The movie is better, and it's the same thing, only six hours shorter. Plus, it has The Chemical Brothers. Save yourself six hours and watch the movie.

Apr 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Hanna has echoes of Jason Bourne. [Full Review in Spanish]

Apr 10, 2019 | Full Review…

There's no simple catch-line for this hybrid spy-thriller-fairytale coming-of-age drama that is fiendishly hard to categorise.

Audience Reviews for Hanna: Season 1

  • Sep 10, 2020
    This show is haunting and stays with you. Everything about this production is first rate.
  • Aug 28, 2020
    The show is not bad. It had promise but the script/story/plot needs a lot of work. Some of it is simply silly and illogical. The 'suspension of disbelief' gets difficult and the story is too often logically inconsistent. (I could write a 5 or 6 page review on these...) It would have been a lot better if someone intelligent had reviewed the script and pointed out the unnecessary stupidity in it. Could we have someone with a brain working on series 3, please? And how about you use some decent music instead of that dreadful arty crap? If the producer/director/writer would like some help with it, please feel free to contact me thru rottentomatoes.com. Best of luck.

    It's a very engaging series, great screenwriting and it all makes sense. Love it.

    Two hours of good content crammed into 8 hours of episodes.

    Hanna Season 1 was actually pretty good. I didn't see the movie that it was based on but from the show Hanna is actually a pretty interesting character however there are some elements of the show where it does gets kind of formulaic which is we're she meets Sophie but even at that it does provide the series seems like it's only comedic element. The rest of the season was pretty serious which I do like so considering on how Episode 1 was such a serious tone while Episode 2 felt more of a fish out of water buddy type comedy. Which at first I thought that was going to be the rest of the series but it was only until Episode 5. The show is not bad at all there are some really cool action sequences Esme Creed-Miles is such a great actress. Both her and Joel Kinnaman really sold on their acting and action sequences. This show may not be the best on Amazon Prime but definitely worth checking out 7/10.

    The portrayal of the emotions is perfect. The action is definitely there. I was not disappointed as I expected something at least as good as the film and it was. The second season is even better !
  • Aug 01, 2020
    Good background season to get you on Hanna's side.
  • Jul 22, 2020
    I'm surprised this is rated so highly. IMO it's not terrible, there's some fun stuff and it moves pretty well -- but wow there's a lot of stuff that doesn't make sense. (And a lot of "good guy is outnumbered 10-to-1 but bad guys miss every shot"-type action.) And nothing that you haven't seen already in Bourne et al. That said, like many streaming shows, if you watch a few eps you'll probably be hooked and want to see how it plays out.

    Season 1 is great. Better than the movie. Enjoy because season 2 is a steaming turd.

    the first season was great, the 2nd was good but not as good
