Warning! Spoilers Ahead!


I don’t normally review movies this recent, but having just seen it appear on another website’s list of ten movies one may have overlooked in the last several years, I thought I’d give Hanna some due diligence, as I believe/pray/hope it will become a cult classic in years to come. It certainly deserves cult film status. While not a blockbuster, it’s still considered a financial success, having brought in a worldwide total of $63,782,078. While the movie’s numbers are solid, the fact remains many still have never even heard of or seen this film, which is disheartening because I think it’s one of the best films made in the last five years.

The premise is your classic sixteen-year-old girl who lives in the woods with her dad and has been trained as a total bad-ass ninja then is told she must meet her dad in Berlin after he alerts the CIA to their whereabouts. Hanna is also told that a woman named Marissa will try to kill her, so she better have been paying attention during all those karate and hunting lessons. Well, everything goes to plan, and maybe this is the only flaw in the movie: the big “reveal” is seen from a million miles away and everything expected to happen generally does. But, what happens is so much fun and exquisitely shot that I give the movie a pass for running out of steam three-quarters in.

In no small part is Hanna’s awesomeness due to its cast, which includes the queen of everything Beyoncé isn’t, Cate Blanchett, who celebrated a birthday earlier this week. As Marissa, her steely eyes and perfect southern accent give her such a sinisterly fun quality, one can’t help but be seduced by her intensity and earnestness, knowing full well that she wants to kill Hanna and you, if she had the chance. It’s one of Cate’s more understated roles (no Oscar nods or monarchs here) but it’s one of her most underrated. Incidentally, for another underrated Cate Blanchett vehicle, you should rent Bandits. She’s hilarious.

Moving on, Eric Bana, who I’d love to be my daddy stuck in the woods with any day of the week, plays Hanna’s father with an iron jaw and focused precision that wreaks of strength and confidence. Little good it does him. Saoirse Ronan, whom everyone should go see in The Grand Budapest Hotel, as Hanna has an ethereal beauty to her, so much so that one can almost believe that, while she’s a cold-blooded killer, her innocence is completely intact. Speaking of cast, keep an eye out for Michelle Dockery, Lady Mary herself, in an almost missable moment.

Cinematography is the other main reason this movie is so engrossing. The opening shots of a snow-covered Finland give justice to the stark beauty inherent to a desolate landscape. The same can be said for the shots taken of the dessert when Hanna escapes the CIA. To start in a landscape that feels very “north of the wall” then to take the viewer to the desert, where you can almost feel your own arms begin to sunburn, only to end up in an abandoned amusement park in the German forest leads me to believe that the filmmakers knew the whole film couldn’t run, as no story can, on premise alone. Run out of story? Only have chases left? Perfect, use stylistic choices any serious Tumblr addict would go mad for.

In reviewing this film, I’d also be remiss to mention several fun sequences. The first is when an English family help Hanna escape the desert. Hanna finds her equivalent in this family, a girl named Sophie, who is the comic core of the whole film. She delivers her quips in such perfectly obnoxious way you can’t help but be sad when Hanna must leave them behind. Really, Sophie’s hilarious. Also not to be missed is a super-quick fight sequence with Eric Bana. Again, it’s really the style here that’s most important. I don’t think this scene is an ode to The Wiz, but I could be wrong, because it looks like the same set, to me anyway. And finally, the other great scene is the chase in the shipyard, where all those crates provide enough wacky opportunities to give the whole thing a Bond feel that is rad as fuck.

With that, Hanna is an awesome film about a teenager ninja with a face made for Instagram. She’s got a hot dad, a secret she doesn’t even know, and one of the greatest actresses of our time is trying to kill her. What more could the public want beside a plot and premise that saw its way through to the end of the movie? Everyone’s so picky these days. This is a fun movie with gorgeous shots, hot actors, and yes even some great one-liners.

Top 9 Kick-Ass Women Onscreen http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/top-kick-ass-women-onscreen/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/top-kick-ass-women-onscreen/#comments Mon, 16 Jan 2012 19:41:59 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=242617 Do NOT let any of these women win in air hockey.

They’re often referred to as the fairer sex, but there’s nothing “fair” about the way these women could all kick my ass without even breathing hard (it would be easier than writing an introduction to an article like this without using cliches, I know that for sure). So if you’re in the mood for some kick-ass women, get ready to drag your eyeballs over some text and images about the best! In honor of the release of Underworld Awakening on January 20th, here are 9 kick-ass women onscreen.

Ellen Ripley

Sigourney Weaver’s protagonist across 4 movies in the Alien series is perhaps the definitive kick-ass onscreen woman. She’s an inspiration to all of us, seeing as she was the sole survivor after her ship was infiltrated by a killer alien. In fact, not only was she a survivor, but she actually blew the son of a bitch out of the airlock. AND she did it at least partially in her underwear, which is really just an added bonus. Don’t hurt me, please.

Sarah Connor

Even more so than Ripley, the heroine of the first two Terminator movies has quite an evolution from unassuming girl to horrifying warrior/possible crazy person. In The Terminator, Sarah is a suburban waitress who becomes the target of a cyborg from the future sent to murder her before she gives birth to the savior of humankind. In Terminator 2, she’s confined to a mental asylum and will crack your face open with a broken broom handle just as soon as not. And that’s before she gets out and starts using guns and explosives and stuff.

Xena, Warrior Princess

I don’t really remember much about Xena. She had throwing discs, and she hung out with Hercules, and she got into lots of fights, and she had a girlfriend? Sounds like a kick-ass woman to me. I bet she’d like me if she got to know me (although maybe she thinks the same thing about me, like I said it’s been a while since I watched the show).

That’s right, America – the demigod from the UK known as Russell Brand has finally “hit it big,” with both the number one and number two movies in America featuring his tricky-to-spell name on the poster. Of course, he picked a couple of pretty mediocre earners with which to earn this badge of honor, with the badly-reviewed comedy remake Arthur and the badly-reviewed comedy Easter CGI rabbit movie Hop. And I don’t just mean the reviews are mediocre: the films earned only $12.6 million and $21.6 million, respectively. No, you’re not misreading that. Plus,Hop has been the number one movie for two weekends in a row. Maybe it will keep plugging along until Easter.

Rounding out the weekend was the pretty excellent Hanna, which managed third place with $12.3 million, and Soul Surfer, the inspirational sports version of Jaws, in fourth place with $11.1 million. I’ve said it for years: If you want to make bank at the box office, you’ve got to have more than one person getting eaten by a shark. (Box Office Mojo)

To coincide with the release of Joe Wright‘s little-blonde-girl-assassin movie Hanna (in theaters now), Vulture put together a montage of disturbing child murderers! It’s actually kind of hypnotic to watch, strangely enough. You’d think it’d make ovaries shrivel up and sperm start swimming the other way, but I don’t know, it’s kind of making me want to raise a little rugrat of my own. A little ball of joy to coddle and teach to ride a bike, and how to hold an icepick. It’s all in the angle, you see. You raise that thing high enough above your head, and you’ve got a deadl weapon! Any lower and you’re just going to maim. This heartwarming montage contains clips from Children Of The Corn all the way to Orphan. And if you’re going to complain that Orphan isn’t a good example, you’re even more of a nerd than me, AND you just helped spoil the ending of a terrible movie. (Vulture)

9 Ferocious Female Assassins http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-ferocious-female-assassins/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-ferocious-female-assassins/#comments Thu, 07 Apr 2011 21:42:49 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=205921 As far as Hollywood is concerned, there's nothing deadlier than a self-empowered female.

When it comes to famous assassins, what names come to mind? Probably Oswald, Booth, Princip, just to name a few. And you probably think of troubled loaners or psychopathic revolutionaries, as opposed to hot babes in leather jumpsuits or tweenage school girls. But as far as Hollywood is concerned, there’s nothing deadlier than a self-empowered female, and in the new film Hanna, Hanna, is no exception. With that in mind, take a look at this list of ferocious female assassins and see for yourself.

Xenia Sergeyevna Onatopp – Golden Eye

Ms. Onatopp might be the least noteworthy entry on this list, but in the world of assassins, that’s supposed to be a good thing. And while she might not be as well known as her counterparts on this list, she’s just as deadly. Rather than shoot or poison her marks, as a normal killer would, Onatopp lures her victims to bed and then crushes them between her legs. Pain aside, that’s not a bad way to go.

Charlie BaltimoreThe Long Kiss Goodnight

Charlie Baltimore (a.k.a. Samantha Caine) is a spy for the CIA. The catch is she doesn’t even know it. After a bout of amnesia, she settled down into a quiet life in rural Pennsylvania. But when her past catches up to her, she is forced to return to her old ways. It’s a lot like A History of Violence, without all the violent sex.

O-Ren Ishii – Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2

If you’re a member of The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, chances are you know a thing or two about assassinations. O-Ren Ishii learned to kill at an early age, avenging the death of her parents at the hands of a Yakuza boss. After her stint with the squad, she went on to become head of the Yakuza herself, before being assassinated. Live by the sword, yada yada, yada.

Georgia Sykes – Smokin’ Aces

Georgia Sykes is part of a two-man (or two-woman) hit team. In the film, her partner, Sharice Watters, is a closeted lesbian with a crush on Georgia. Lesbianism, even if it’s only hinted at, gets you bumped up on my lists.

Hit-Girl – Kick Ass

Hit-Girl might be the youngest female on the list, but that doesn’t stop her from keeping up with the big girls, at least when it comes to killing. Trained by her father to be a remorseles fighting machine, Mindy McCready (her real name) believes she and her father are on a quest to avenge the death of her mother, and longs for the day when she can return to a normal life.

Jane Smith – Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Angelina Jolie has played several different female assassins, but I decided on using her character, Jane Smith. Why? Why not. In the film, Jane and her husband John are both assassins, although neither one of them knows the truth. As you’d imagine, once their true identities are discovered, things get a little harry, and the couple ends up destroying their home while trying to kill one another. But this is an action-comedy, so things work out in the end, unlike most marriages.

Maggie Hayward – Point of No Return

I went with this film rather than the French original, La Femme Nikita, for one simple reason: Bridget Fonda’s breasts make me happy. In the film, Fonda plays a death-row inmate who is spared her sentence in order to become a government sanctioned assassin, which makes total sense, since drug addicts are so trustworthy and reliable.

T-X – Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

Technically, the T-X isn’t really a female, since it’s a machine. Just like “technically,” my real doll isn’t a woman. But in both cases, it works out a lot better if you just suspend disbelief.

The Bride – Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2

Was there any doubt that The Bride would be at the top of the list? Not only was she a member of the most talented assassination squad in the world, but she also managed to kill off all of the other members in her quest for sweet, sweet revenge. That pretty much sums it up.

Hanna is the kind of action movie I enjoy, where you understand the visual language. You see a lot without explanation, and what you don’t quite see often tells more of the story. Modern audiences may call this revolutionary. Let’s go with “old school.”

In her first scene hunting a deer, Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) disappears instantly with a camera move. We always see stealthy killers disappearing in a cut, but it means a lot more to show it fluidly. Hanna’s been trained out in the snow by her father, Erik (Eric Bana). If the deer didn’t convince you, her fight with Erik shows you she’s got skills.

Marisa Wiegler (Cate Blanchett) is introduced dramatically, from behind during her daily routine. That pays off later when she brushes her teeth with less confidence. Wiegler provides a brief dossier, something genetic about Hanna and covert about Erik. She’s the bad guy.

I’m being glib because I think it’s perfect that they don’t over explain too much. Eventually you learn exactly what’s special about Hanna but only when it dramatically pays off. As far as I’m concerned they could leave it vague. We just need to know there’s a basic relationship and antagonism. The story and the actors deliver the gravitas without explaining this is why they’re acting this way.

You completely understand the methodology of Hanna’s skills. When she escapes, you don’t exactly see all her moves but you know what she’s doing and how she’s leveraging her opponents. In a flashback for Wiegler, you hear a car crashing off camera, because what’s important is Wiegler’s action. A gunfight has all to do with Wiegler reaching her gun some distance ahead of her.

Hanna is not just an action thriller though. Hanna hooks up with a traveling family in an RV. Their daughter, Sophie (Jessica Barden), is such a spoiled brat it’s an adorable counterpoint. When her mom (Olivia Williams) asks Hanna how her mom, her blunt honesty is priceless.

This is all a very technical way of saying Hanna is awesome. The action is cool, the characters are memorable and it’s made in a clear, exciting way.

This tense clip from Joe Wright‘s Hanna shows us what happens when Seahorse Regimine Saoirse Ronan and Cate Blanchett‘s decoy agent (worst job ever) decide to hug it out while Blanchett watches helplessly in her standard issue Agent Scully costume. If  the rest of the film stands up to this scene, we’re in for a treat. And if it does well enough, maybe we’ll see a Hanna Vs. Hit Girl spin-off. (Guardian)

The international trailer for Hanna is out, and it’s equall kick-ass as the U.S. trailer, but with a slightly different focus. While the US trailer focused a little more on her upbringing, this trailer sheds a little more light on her life on the run once her card has been pulled by the powers that be. It also merits mentioning that both trailers show her snapping that Southern chick’s neck like a twig, which is worth the price of admission right there.

This new trailer shows Hanna as more of a fish-out-of-water and insinuates at the end that should could be just plain evil, but I don’t buy that for a second. Not our Hanna.

Either way, this video just affirms my belief that this movie is going to be really great. Which is what a trailer is supposed to do, so…good job, Team Hanna. (/Film)

The post Saoirse Ronan Will Get Low In ‘The Hobbit’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The murky soap opera that is Peter Jackson‘s development of The Hobbit just got slightly less cloudy with the confirmation from Ros Hubbard, the casting director, that Saoirse Ronan has been cast in an unspecified role, though rumors have it that she will be playing Itaril. Ronan was hopeful for the part as little as two weeks ago, intimating that she would a role if she was offered one, but, at that point, the producers had shown her no love.

The lovelessness was short-lived, however. With Ronan’s recent pedigree and looks, it’s hard to rule her out of any casting decisions, even if those decisions involve little people kickin’ it in Middle Earth. Ronan has garnered buzz for her starring role in Hanna in which she is compelled to assassinate her own father, played by Eric Bana. That role follows well-received turns in both Atonement and The Lovely Bones, which indicate that she might want to go with a comedy next time out to prove she has the whole package. I hear Rob Schneider‘s been wanting to work with her for ages. (/Film)

The widely-anticipated Source Code, Duncan Jones‘ follow-up to Moon, shows Jake Gyllenhaal running away from photographs that are trying to eat him. Which is always a tricky situation. Jake plays an operative who becomes embedded in the last eight minutes of a man’s life in order to both solve a crime and prevent another one, but to do so, he must relive those minutes over and over in order gather clues. So the photos are clues. Or keepsakes. Only time will tell. (Coming Soon)

Today also marks the release of a poster for Hanna, starring Eric Bana and Saoirse Ronan, in which a girl (Ronan) is trained to kill her CIA agent father (Bana). By all accounts, the movie is supposed to be exceptional, and the poster does those sentiments justice. The simplicity of it is striking, as are Ronan’s baby blues. (Film School Rejects)
