Review #2 Movie: Hanna.

So I've watched Hanna with Ara after a series of movie dates cancellation with Adam. (yes, they're all my bad, I was the one who couldn't keep my words). But hey, I was super glad that I didn't watch it with him, since that kind of movie is so not his cup of tea. Me? Well, not much, but I quite like the soundtracks, so that kinda make up to the flat story line.
Oops. Did I just mentioned a flat story line? Well I did, because it is. There's not much of a climax in this movie, but I think it is still enjoyable. If you find Salt (Angelina Jolie) watchable, then you might find Hanna worthwhile too. But this doesn't apply to my brother who thinks Salt was awesome because there's Jolie in it, but the story line sucks real bad. I guess because Salt doesn't really have a clear plot on the climax. All Jolie does in the movie is changing identity.

And the same goes to Hanna.

All she does is running. Yes, literally running. The movie is about Hanna, a girl who was genetically modified since she was still a bunch of cells. She was built to be strong and tough, have less mercy, feel no pain, intensified senses and every good quality there could be in a soldier. Which well, she is. All those while she was raised in an isolated snowy part of Germany, until one day she decided to reveal herself. Being highly sought after due to her 'abnormalities', she has to keep on running to escape from those who want to capture her. So basically, yes, this movie is about a girl escaping some bad guys and killing everyone who gets in her way.

But there are still some witty parts especially between Hanna and her newly-found British friend, Sophie (she's a bimbo). Sophie carries an image of a typical blonde with heavy British accent (imagine Cordelia, played by Selena Gomez in Monte Carlo but a bit more lovable than that). Try to put a small little fighter next to a bimbo, well, that's not too hard to imagine, isn't it?

Overall, though I found myself pretty enjoying the movie, I must say that the movie is not for everyone. If you can't handle murders and assassins and guns and fights and of course, massive pool of blood, then don't. One thing for sure, the suspense and thrills in this movie are well intensified by the soundtracks. Perhaps I enjoyed the music more than the movie. But this movie really gave me almost 2 hours of nervousness and chills, apart from the awesome music.

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but
I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
