|In her words, Hanna is trained to be independent. In our words, Hanna is trained to be something like a super killer. Wild animals, humans, it doesn't matter. She knows all the techniques. With intense action, character development, and inventive filmmaking, "Hanna" is super cool.||2011 |

And did I mention that Hanna is just a girl? She's a smart girl, she's resourceful, alert, and inquisitive. The type of girl who can survive in the wild but perhaps not in the real world of teenage girls. The world that is filled with pop star fascination, sparkly clothes and makeup, and boys who want to kiss you. Luckily though, Hanna is very smart and strong.
"Hanna" represents the ultimate in female independence, and finally a successful merging of action and a character-heavy plot into something that almost seems poetic in its expansive telling on the big screen.
