Re: Hanna - Blu-Ray Review

I just watched this beautiful film over the weekend (disclaimer: I vote on some of the awards and the studio sent me a screener, and I had no prior knowledge of this film). It was a surprise from scene 1 to the end. Saorise Ronin makes it hard to take your eyes off her, she plays vulnerable girl and tireless fighter at once. The trans-european thriller was very nicely shot, the sound was great (though some of the FX seemed panned a bit hard L/R) and the Chemical Brothers music tied it all together. A very satisfying film!

I agree with the above -- to add, the chemical brothers soundtrack pulsates and adds a very rich texture to the movie.

A+

Dave, thanks for the review. I prefer to rent movies, and after doing so, decided to buy this one.

Re: Hanna - Blu-Ray Review

This is a very good movie. There are some good action scenes as well as a decent somewhat original story. This movie is definitely worth watching and I would consider it a 7.5/10

Re: Hanna - Blu-Ray Review

I had to search for a review of Hanna. I agree; I thought it was awesome too.

I just watched the DVD version but frankly forgot that it was DVD most of the time.. The audio and video are that well produced.

I especially like all of the contrasts... *spoiler alert* being in a totally natural wilderness setting in the beginning, with natural soft serene soundscapes, and then slammed into a cold mechanical prison with blasting electronic music sizzling through the 5.1 channels.... this happens in many ways over and over throughout the film.

awesome stuff

Finally got to watch Hanna. Is there any acting award that this kid does not deserve?

I really enjoyed this movie and found the story was written well. As soon as the price comes down a bit this will be added to my BD collection.

Re: Hanna - Blu-Ray Review

Thanks for the review. I and my Wife gave it a watch and I for one was surprised! I loved it. I wonder though how many younger folks that did not have any first hand experience with the 60s and what was going on will get it?
