Joe Wright is moving from the Oscar bait world to the genre world, but the trailer for Hanna shows he hasn’t left behind his keen visual sense. Like his movies or not, you have to admit that Wright’s films look amazing; I was not a fan of Atonement, but the beach scene is incredible and one of the best moments in 21st century film.
Hanna features Saoirse Ronan as Hanna, a more serious version of Hit Girl, trained up by her ex-CIA daddy, Eric Bana. Bana is sporting a really, really goofy accent here, as is Cate Blanchett, playing a Scully-haired CIA type hunting down the titular asskicker.
I don’t know what to make of the film in general but I hope the action is as nice as Wright’s general mise en scene. It would be a pity for the film to be so beautiful looking but for the action to be an over-edited mess.
