Jeremy Lebens of Media Stomp wrote,"Every so often a film comes out and gets a ton of praise and positive buzz, even though the trailers looked like complete crap. I usually tend to wait these ones out for home video, but if I read enough positive stuff from trusted writers, then I usually find myself taking the plunge. Hanna was one of those films and what a disappointment it was. It felt extremely slow and boring with barely anything happening. The action was average at best and the story seemed to never go anywhere. The only redeeming quality of the film was the score, composed by The Chemical Brothers. I honestly think I would have been better off watching a blank screen while listening to the score. I should have trusted my gut instinct that was telling me to avoid Hanna as if it were the plague. Now I sit here with six dollars less in my pocket. Thankfully I saw this early in the day and didn't have to pay full price for a ticket."
