Hanna is a truly blistering espionage thriller by director Joe Wright. Hanna is probably my favorite film from Wright to date. It is fast paced, exhilarating, and interesting. Wright has crafted a wholly original spy movie that oozes creativity. Every scene has cool shots and wonderfully executed panning shots. Impressive sequence after sequence line every scene of Hanna. You will be amazed and entertained by this movie for sure. Wright perfected the action film with Hanna.
Acting wise, Hanna has a delight cast of characters that emote their respective figures with surrealistic zeal. Saoirse Ronan makes for a deadly killer and a sweet heroine. She is fierce and believable as a spy, while also conveying Hanna's childish nature. Eric Bana is at his best as Hanna's tough, yet kind father. He is very cool as a spy. Cate Blanchett and Tom Hollander are two of the creepiest villains in film history. They will unsettle and threaten you. All in all, Hanna has a well cast ensemble.
Musically, Hanna is exciting and loud with a fresh electronic score from The Chemical Brothers. The bass will blast, the synths will reverberate, and the themes will soar into your ears. Hanna's soundtrack is quite memorable. I have not felt such thrills in a spy thriller since The Bourne Trilogy.
In short, Joe Wright's innovative direction focuses this neat narrative into a non-stop feature. The lovely Saoirse Ronan will captivate you throughout Hanna. You will root for her to triumph. Sit back and enjoy the music, action, acting, and direction. Hanna is divine!
