    First look on the suicidal squad and their new look.

The Deadly Innocence of Hanna

How different is Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) to any other girl we know?  Well, other than being raised on a jungle far enough from the civilization, she is a girl trained for extreme human survival groomed for an specific mission given by his own father (Eric Bana).  She is definitely an ultimate fighting machine in one package.

Though it seems that this movie is marketed like a younger version of Evelyn Salt or a standalone movie for Hit-Girl, Hanna is definitely not Salt or Kick-Ass.  Compared to its predecessors, Hanna is more organic and realistic in contrast to a glossy and special effects driven scenes from previous action and comic book blockbusters.  The fight scenes don't look as fluid as most action movies are that makes the scenes more natural, spontaneous and unrehearsed. This is how real people fight.  This is how real people kill.

I also like the use of Grimm's Fairytale as a device for the whole movie.  It somehow shows a mix of Little Red Riding Hood, CinderellaSnow White and some little touch of Hansel and Gretel. The emphasize on Hanna as the heroine and Marissa Weigler as the wicked witch or Big bad wolf is very strong and surreal.  It adds a unique texture to the plot despite being a hybrid from different movies and stories we've seen or heard before.

I'm quite happy with the actors' performance and for the obvious reasons, Soirse Ronan and Cate Blanchett are hands down brilliant.  I'm a bit annoyed with Sophie (Jessica Barden) but hey that is how most skanky teenagers act right?  So she perfectly nailed it.

Hanna could be not the action movie that most audience will like to see but I definitely approve that this is a movie worth checking out.  Coming exclusively on Ayala Cinemas (Glorietta 4, Greenbelt 3 and Trinoma) this coming September 28, Hanna is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
