Hanna (PG-13)

★★☆☆☆

In this well-made yet repellent action film, Saoirse Ronan plays the role of the teenage daughter of a trained CIA assassin (Eric Bana). In snowy Finland, dad schools his little girl in all manner of combat and survival tactics. Dad’s old boss (Cate Blanchett) wants her rogue agent brought in from the cold. She also has plans for the girl, who has been genetically engineered to follow a bloody path indeed. Ronan holds the screen. But for all its globe-trotting, the movie never goes anywhere.

Good Actors Gone Bad

Royal blood doesn’t always wear a crown. Hanna is an incomprehensible pile of gibberish with great credentials: Joe Wright, who directed Atonement, reunites with one of its stars, Saoirse Ronan, the phenomenally talented teenager with the unpronounceable name, and the cast also includes Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana. The result is unbearable junk. What went wrong? Just about everything.
