One Minute Movie Review: Hanna
The one word that best describes this film is overreach. In its attempt to be overtly avante garde and stylish, this thriller falls flat right out of the gate. The characters are uninteresting, the story overtly convoluted, and the acting is as dry as a Dean Martin Martini. By the film's end, every question posed is only vaguely answered. If you even care at that point. There is utterly no connection with the audience, and you are left with an independent film genre that tries unsuccessfully to be an action film. I caught myself, many times, watching the clock in the hopes it would be ending soon. I thought this might be the upgrade to the movie Salt, I was wrong. 0 out of 5 Kernels, one of the worst movies of the 2011 season.
