Movie Review: Hanna

A girl lives with her father in a remote cottage in snowy woods. She's growing up and wants to explore the world, but leaving the cottage comes with a high price. The government is looking for her, and she must confront her past before she can be free.

This movie started out so good! I loved the atmosphere of hunting reindeer in the woods and the father reading to his daughter before the fire at night. Hanna is beautifully played by Saoirse Ronan and the father by Eric Bana. The suspense is constant throughout like any good thriller, and the scenes with her and the British family that takes her in are so good. This story goes deeper than I thought it would. Unfortunately, the ending left me feeling empty.

Good review! I haven't heard too much about this movie. Right now, I want to see Scream 4. Hehe!

Bad endings suck. But it'd be worth it to watch Eric Bana. Rawr!
