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.

Sucker Punch (PG-13)

Only the rarest of movies is given a title that perfectly encapsulates the experience of watching it, but sitting through Sucker Punch, a ludicrous fantasy from 300 director Zack Snyder involving underage prostitutes fighting droids and dragons, really is like being attacked and beaten without any means of defending yourself. While you’re not busy looking for the nearest exit, you can ruminate on how decent actors such as Carla Gugino, Abbie Cornish and Jon Hamm wound up in this mess.
