Great Action Flick--Hanna
I don't normally see Hollywood action movies anymore because they're all the same. The plots are way too contrived and yet still predictable, the action is non-stop and too blurry to follow, and the soundtrack is like a Burlington Northern Flier full of airplane fuel barreling down a steep, endless downgrade only to pile up in a rocky canyon.
But this movie about a sixteen-year-old female assassin is refreshingly unique and unpredictable, and one hell of a lot of fun to watch. It almost renews my faith in the movie makers out in Hollywood, though I doubt very much we'll see another movie like this one for another six, seven years. Accidents like this just don't happen that often out there.
