Occasional Movie Reviews: Hanna



I'm a sucker for movies with tough heroines, so I though I might like this. I was wrong.

Some wee spoilers below.

Er, how is it that a girl who spent her whole live in the Siberian outback knows how to navigate with superheroish skill through a secret army underground bunker? And knows all about surveillance cameras, but not t.v. monitors? And knows how to detect that she's being tailed by a car? (Admittedly: the gay Nazis who are following her are the worst secret agents ever.) The movie has its moments, e.g. the surreal weirdness of the strip club. And it does try to avoid explaining everything, which is good. But overall, I thought it pretty much sucked.

Worth watching if it's the only thing on cable and you are seriously jonesing for an action movie.

But Eric Bana's fight with the six heavies in the German subway was awesome. And the Chemical Brothers' music worked well

I agree with that. I thought that fight was unusually good, in part b/c it was brief and brutal, though not obscenely so.
