Hanna (2011): Thoughts from the Couch (Potato)

hanna movie posterIn one corner we have, Hanna, a 16 year old assassin, hidden away and trained by The Incredible Hulk in the frozen Finnish wilderness! She is erudite! She is dangerous! She is blonde and her eyes are very blue! She fits into very small spaces!

AAAAAAAAnd…in the other corner we have, ruthless CIA operative Marissa Wiegler! She has a gun and a whole army of goons in flak jackets as well as a fabulous german sociopath and his skinhead sidekicks!

DINGDINGDINGDING…FIGHT!

This film starts out with some breathtaking action sequences (the escape from Camp G is particularly fun to watch) and introduces some fascinating characters. Joe Wright does an awesome job keeping the plot moving whilst keeping you intrigued.

Debs G recommends: Watch this movie with Joss Whedon’s Serenity for an evening of badass teen girls beating up a whole bunch of dudes.

P.S. Find Hanna here.
