I must admit that I have been looking forward to Hanna ever since I read that director Joe Wright was going to try something a little different. From the start of the movie you are under no illusion that this is not going to be a straightforward experience. Immediately you are stuck by some exquisite cinematography by Alwin H. Kuchler (SUNSHINE) who uses natural landscapes and some magnificent locations to appease our eyes.
Once the action kicks off the influences from LA FEMME NIKITA, LEON and RUN LOLA RUN are very much apparent as Hanna moves from one location to another with ruthless efficiency and panache. While being an ACTION THRILLER I found the movie to approach this genre in a very DRAMATIC way. Hanna herself evolves through movie thanks to her interaction with other characters. It is this development that makes this a step above most films in this genre.
