Hanna by Joe Wright, 2011 (PG-13)

with Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett (Bandits, Robin Hood), Eric Bana, Tom Hollander, Olivia Williams (The Ghost Writer, An Education), Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class), Jessica Barden, Michelle Dockery, Vicky Krieps

Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) is a teenager raised and trained by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA operative, to become a highly skilled assassin. But when she's sent on a deadly mission across Europe, Hanna takes to an English family and starts longing for a normal life. She must first solve the puzzle of her mysterious past, however.

The trailer for this movie is fascinating. Very well done, amazing acting. I guess you can say that for the rest of the movie. The kid, Saoirse Ronan is unbelievable. And the way the survival instinct is presented is really taking. Cate Blanchett is also amazing, I think the more unusual her characters, the better she plays them. Therefor, the race is breathtaking. On the other hand, it feels like if this was a series, it could be successful, it has major similitude with the beginning of "Dark Angel", this tv series produced by James Cameron. But as a one time movie, it feels lacking of a story. The race is not compensated by a goal that it may have, an explanation of why she should or not be caught. It is at a point running for running... And that is where the movie weakness is.
