This weeks movie pick: Hanna

“Imagine if you will a fairy tale about a teenage princess who is a highly trained killer and there is no happy ending in sight. It’s weirdly terrific to see actual cinema dressed up as an action film.”

Award-winning director Joe Wright creates a boldly original suspense thriller with "Hanna," starring Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan ("The Lovely Bones," "Atonement") in the title role.

Raised by her father (Eric Bana of "Star Trek"), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland, Hanna’s upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.

EN 5 Second Review: This is one of those rare movies that breaks the mold. Imagine if you will a fairy tale about a teenage princess who is a highly trained killer and there is no happy ending in sight. It’s weirdly terrific to see actual cinema dressed up as an action film. Don’t expect to understand this film on the first viewing, the good news is that you will want to see it again to figure out what you are missing.

Overall take: Highly entertaining, our pick of the week is actually worth your 12 bucks. Twice. Also, Saoirse Ronan is amazing.
