Hanna isn’t anywhere near the perfect film. Based on a spec script, there are numerous plot holes if you look close enough and the core storyline, involving the creation of super-soldiers, is nothing particularly new. However, with Joe Wright at the helm and Saoirse Ronan offering a career defining performance, an otherwise typical action flick takes on an almost otherworldly quality. The inclusion of dark fairytale imagery in the style of The Brothers Grimm is an apt one and The Chemical Brothers offer a perfect musical match: you will likely find yourself whistling ‘The Devil is in the Details’ for days afterwards. A bold, inventive take on the action genre that manages to make substance out of style.
