An outstanding, and fiercely directed "coming-of-age/revenge-flick", this little movie is, by far, the best one of the year. The action is so realistically choreographed that it would give big-budget action films a run for their money. The actors are in top form, but it is Ronan ...
Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) is 16 years old. She is bright, inquisitive, and a devoted daughter. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a soldier; these come from being raised by her... read more

A retired spy who has trained his daughter in seclusion her entire life unleashes her upon the world to revenge herself upon the former handler who betrayed him and murdered her mother. It's the turn of teen photo love stories to be Bourne again in this girly-girl version of the ...

A decent action/thriller, a bit like a teen girl version of Bourne Identity, but not as good. Although it was better than Abduction, good cast and some well choreographed fight scenes.

This average action thriller with tones of fairy tale features a stylish editing and an electrifying score, being particularly efficient in the exciting fighting and action scenes but not that interesting to show the character's adaptation in a world she only knew via an encyclop...

"Hanna" is a much more methodically slower paced but meticulously detailed film. The tension that the story built up, crept up on me throughout the film. By the end, "Hanna" succeeded to get me involved and propelled me through the exciting action sequences with the help of an en...

Watching this on its HBO premiere reminds me of how criminally underrated this film is.

The first 30 minutes sets up a tall order, but the last half doesn't follow through. This movie is "Jungle to Jungle"/"Tarzan" meeting "Bourne", where our young heroin, isolated in the arctic forests, wants to experience the world that she has only read about, all while the CIA i...
