Tries to be artsy, but was mediocre, with some dumb aspects, in my opinion. Maybe a 4 or 5 out of 10.http://www.hannathemovie.com/
I was personally indifferent to the characters; didn't emotionally draw me in at all. To me, the characters seemed more like two-dimensional stick figures. The basic plot was not difficult to follow. I found that the movie just dragged. At one point during one of the "action" sequences I actually started motioning with my hands, to "move it along, already." It just got repetitive after a while - chase, run, fight, chase, run, fight. On top of that, the "surprise" spin was telegraphed about 1/2 way through the movie, so that too was a big nothing by the end of the film.
Really, I don't understand why it was so well received.
So what was with the flipping the switch? Why not just go the surprise-attack-targeted-assassination route? Was the switch to "out" the bad lady? To justify self-defense? Nah, too many other true innocents killed. Never really explained.
And how do you shoot an arrow without a bow? That's something to watch in slo-mo on the DVD, I suppose. Must have been there tucked away.
And why these days do we always have to have the villain be the CIA or Big Business, even if "rogue" elements? (Though my reactions to the film were independent of this trite aspect).
My vote on the film: One big Yawn.
P.S. Thanks for merging my comments into the existing Hanna thread. I scanned but didn't see that it was already set up.
