Consensus: Fantastic acting and crisply choreographed action sequences propel this unique, cool take on the revenge thriller.

Time Out

While the film as a whole may be episodic and wayward, and not always in a good way, the action scenes are uniformly sharp, inventive and gripping.

New York Magazine/Vulture

What keeps us hooked is Ronan, a young actress of seemingly limitless abilities, and the tension she creates between Hanna's inhumanly agile body and quizzical eyes, which turn cold only when she pulls the trigger.

"Hanna" plays out as a visceral fairy tale about a naif discovering a world both fascinating and dangerous.

Sean Burns
Philadelphia Weekly

Meticulously composed mayhem without a larger purpose, too glum to provide any base genre satisfactions.

One can't but feel sorry for Hanna - who's whole reason for being is to avenge her mother's murder.

An outstanding, and fiercely directed "coming-of-age/revenge-flick", this little movie is, by far, the best one of the year. The action is so… More
