HANNA - Movie Review
Raised by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland, Hanna’s upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Cate Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.
Okay, I was sucked in when I first saw the movie trailer. Heck, I was like wow, this has a lot of potential. Well, what can I say...the trailer picked out the best part of the movie. Oh, and I giggled at the flaming gay assassin, the woman who was HANNA's nemesis who I never quite figured out why she had to kill the girl. It started with the mystery of what Hanna was, why she had to find this woman, and why they wanted her. Bottom line, the action, violence, fight scenes were plenty, but the story just wasn't feasible or well developed. The actress that played HANNA did a great job, but the rest of the movie just...didn't have enough to carry this for me. I gave it 2 out of 5 punches.
WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO:
Harry Potter...need I say more?
X-Men: First Class
Stay tuned I'm going to the movie next week...you never know, it might be something REALLY GOOD!
SO WHAT YOU WATCHIN? READING?
