Re: Hanna - Blu-Ray Review

So went down to the local movie rental store and picked up Hanna on BD. Hmm, ya... Movie starts off well and ends well - but takes on a 'life development' turn in between all the action. Man, as soon as I saw that family in the Moroccan hotel, I knew their fate. The audio is also interesting, full of electronically generated sounds layered one upon each other.

I would not bother.

Re: Hanna - Blu-Ray Review

While I felt it was a good movie, a couple elements led to it falling short of great, the primary one being the conclusion/ending. I didn't have a problem with the outcome, but I felt how it came about in the last ten minutes was ridiculous. Without leaving a spoiler here, I can't go further, but suffice to say, it's a rental in my book because of that glaring shortcoming.

Man, my house was pulsating! That soundtrack was really cool, and suited the film amazingly well- worth the rental just for that alone! I don't listen to techno much, but the Chemical Bros. hit a home run in my book.

I've now watched this film 3 times since it came out on Blu-ray and the music is absolutely infectious! I find myself whistling the antagonists tune throughout the day...

Re: Hanna - Blu-Ray Review

I really enjoyed this movie in the theatre, and would watch it again at home, especially with anyone who missed the theatrical run. It was great to see a little girl version of Jason Bourne running around, and the Chemical Bros. soundtrack was full of energy and intensity.

Re: Hanna - Blu-Ray Review

Caught this one last night and MAN, the LFEs are ridiculous! The scene where the rangers storm her house in the snow pressurized my room and literally rattled a corkscrew off my bar. This would certainly be a great track to use for subwoofer testing.

The BEST in Blu-Ray Movie Reviews!

Do you hear that, Mr. Anderson? That....is the sound of inevitability....
That....is the sound of you upgrading your Home Theater....

Owen... I agree. Interesting story, some good twists and turns, and teen-watchable in my opinion( important in our house). And on top of that a great soundtrack that often juxtaposes against the landscape and Hanna's calm and cool "Bourne- likeness". Just talking/reading about it makes me want to watch it again. My only complaint is Eric Banna. I love his role in Blackhawk Down, but this character should have been Liam Neeson...

I remember seeing the preview this movie in the treaters and thinking "pass.". I had completely forgotten about it until reading this review - now, I'm intrigued. Just won a copy off eBay for a reasonable $ amount .... Can't wait to check it out!
