Hanna, played by Soairse Ronan, is a lovely but deadly teenager who has been raised alone by her father in a remote area near the arctic circle.  Under his tutelage, she has become an accomplished hunter and fighter, as well as gaining an encyclopedic knowledge of, well, everything in the encyclopedia.  What she has not encountered, however, are things like electricity, plumbing, and other people.

When she finally decides she is ready to leave home, her father digs up a transmitter and we learn that he was a CIA asset, and that he disappeared off their grid years ago.  He and Hanna become the hunted, leaving a trail of dead bodies in their wake.
Hanna: pure, innocent, and deadly.
Hanna is a fabulous action movie which will have you cheering for this determined young woman who is trying to find out who she is.  Sure, she's a cold-blooded killer, but given the circumstances of her birth and upbringing, she seems to be the righteous one.

Bottom line, 3 stars.
