Saoirse Ronan has a lot of potential to become a phenomenal actress as she matures. She is a fairly decent actress now, but the more she practices the better she’ll eventually be. The same, unfortunately, cannot be said for Hanna, for it did have some potential, but it just didn’t reach it. It spent so much time building up to something that when it finally got there, it left me feeling rather uninspired. Not that I was bored, some of the action was decent, but waiting for the movie to reach a wholly underwhelming climax rendered the whole production fruitless.

Verdict: Forget It
