Merenwen’s May 09, 2018 review on the 2018 “Lady Bird” said “Fairly good acting, but I don't think it was Ronan's best. (My favourite role of hers was in Hanna, with How I Live Now being a close second.)” Noted that I rated Hanna 4/5 stars on Dec 19, 2011. Decided to watch it again for good measure. Felt that Ronan’s performance in Hanna was indeed excellent but impossible to compare with her LB role because they were very different films. Anyway, a very good action conspiracy story with Ronan's breakthru acting and wonderful cinematography in exotic locations. Don’t miss the short clip of “Alternate Ending” in “Deleted Scenes”.

Note: My 2011 comment was “A young teen was raised in isolation to hide and trained in "feme fatale skills". She re-entered civilization to face those CIA operatives who failed to terminate her as a baby girl.”

OK. Was left wondering if they were planning a sequel.

I saw this in 2011 when it was released and thought it was pretty good. This time I watch it and notice all the gaping holes in the plot. Like all the Jason Bourne movies. But still, entertaining and worth watching. It's not a bad movie, just geared towards a younger audience than myself.

I had never heard of Saoirse Ronan before recently, but this is one of her earlier works. I loved her in Lady Bird and her acting ability really stands out in this when she was just a teen.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie, but I was VERY pleasantly surprised. Once again, Saoirse Ronan delivers.

Watched this Oct 1 2016, enjoyed it, but I was left a little confused at the end. The scenery was breathtaking, but watch out if you are a bit squeamish, a bit gory in parts!

A great thriller. Just brilliant.

Refreshing entertaining young female kicks-butt movie. Saoirse Ronan did a very good job. Eric Bana & Cate Blanchett were well casted in their supporting roles as well.

Fifty minutes through Hanna, I asked myself, who are these two lead actresses? Stupid me, really! One was Cate Blanchett, and for some reason I did not recognize her. Blanchett was playing some kind of secret agent in cahoots with people that went around hunting people down and killing them for some unknown reason. The other actress was Saoirse Ronan, somebody I had seen only a few times. This is a very good thriller! A bit sci-fi, so just go along with what is going on and you will enjoy.

Very slow paced. It was obvious that the family was going to die I couldn't even get attached to them. Which was sad because they brought the most life to the film. Hanna could have been cool instead she came across as an alien creature. Too many coincidences to be suspenseful. It was so determined to be "avante guard" and mysterious. Instead you just are left waiting for something to happen to move the story along. The biggest fault I had with the movie was the fact that she left the family to die. It was super obvious that if she had killed the three guys following her no one else would know where she was or where she was going. Plus because she had so easily killed the soldiers before, you can't argue that she was bothered by killing or couldn't. Then when she didn't kill Marrissa in the upstairs and just ran away made triple no sense.
