The recent movie Hanna tells the story of a young girl who is trained to be the most powerful assassin in the world. Starring Cate Blanchett, Eric Bana and the remarkable young actress Saoirse Ronan, the film shows how everyone has the power to manage their mind and that brain education can help one accomplish incredible tasks.
The film begins with Hanna (Ronan) being trained by her father (Bana) in a remote, icy setting. She constantly tells her father that she is ready to go out into the world and take on dangerous challenges, and finally he agrees. Hanna then embarks on an incredible, thrilling journey to meet Marissa (Blanchett), the arch nemesis of her family.
Hanna travels through forests, deserts and cities in her epic search for her tormentor, encountering many intimidating opponents along the way. She manages to make a rather unlikely friend in a celebrity-obsessed girl from the U.K., but she remains focused on her task.
The film is rife with analogies to fairy tales. For instance, Hanna agrees to meet her father at the home of one of the Grimm brothers. Additionally, Blanchett's character is often seen obsessing about her teeth, likening her to a big, bad wolf.
Anyone who enjoys a thriller will love Hanna. On top of this, the film's cinematography is sure to impress even those who usually skip over the action movies at their local theater.
