LRA writes: This is an unconventional film in the best possible way. From the trailer to even the opening moments of the actual film we are being prepared for a revenge/action fantasy. It's not so much that we don't get that because we do, oh boy how we do. But it is more like those promises were made to lure us in and trap us with a story that is so much more than a person seeking revenge on another. Hanna was directed by Joe Wright and I have to plead ignorance here because I haven't seen any of his previous work. However when I glossed over his few past films I did take note that not a one of them appeared to be action or thriller oriented. I suppose if I had done my homework and had seen any of his other works I might have been a little more prepared for what Hanna is. Regardless of my expectations though I was fully engulfed in the world and characters presented here and found it to be a refreshing take on the revenge/thriller genre.
