I've Seen HANNA

On the hunt for the devil Hanna known as "Montana".

Hanna is about a girl who was raised and specifically trained in a harsh northern environment to become a deadly tool to exact revenge against a C.I.A. operative that murdered her mother. It stars Saoirse Ronan, Eric "Don't Call Me Banana" Bana, and Cate Blanchett.

To me, this film seemed to be a splendid mix of the movies The Bourne Identity and Hit Girl from Kick Ass. The direction was good and the acting by the entire cast was quite believable. Although, I was most impressed with Saoirse (pronounced "seer-sha") Ronan's performance. At just 17 years of age, Ms. Ronan nailed the portrayal of a female action star, sadly a feat not nearly enough actresses in Hollywood could muster. I totally bought Saorise's character accent and genuinely thought she was of European or South African ancestry. As it turns out, she was born in Ireland, but moved to New York, USA, at the age of 3. If you ever choose to see this flick, you'll witness a young actress that can hold her own against the formidably talented Cate Blanchett.

I highly recommend this movie, for I firmly believe that it will not disappoint. I would eagerly await a sequel involving Hanna and Hit Girl teaming up to defeat the uprising of men who disrespectfully exhibit chauvinistic or misogynistic attitudes towards women. So watch your backs hip hop stars.
