Hanna dir. by

Hanna is sixteen years old. She lives with her father in the woods in isolated Finland. And when we first meet her she is stalking a deer through the snow, shooting it with a bow and arrow before finishing the injured animal off with her knife.

She wants to experience the rest of the world. But to do so she must first help kill her father’s old enemy.

Directed by Ridley Scott ; Screenplay by Brian Helgeland

It managed to get the balance between myth and reality just about right, in my opinion, of course. But even Kevin Costner’s version was damn fine fun. This is not.
