QUICK TAKE:
Action: A teen must use her years of training to survive attempts on her life as she tries to reunite with her father.
PLOT:
Hanna (SAOIRSE RONAN) is a 16-year-old girl living a survivalist's life in the snowy Arctic circle with her father, Erik (ERIC BANA). He's trained her how to hunt and defend herself, along with a number of languages and other education. All of that's left her eager for more in her life and thus he begrudgingly gives her that opportunity, along with the related and deadly perils that accompany it.

With the throwing of a switch on a transponder that alerts others to their remote and, until now, hidden location, their lives are forever changed, with new plans on reuniting at a specific spot in Germany in the near future. After he leaves, she's captured by commandos who work for Marissa (CATE BLANCHETT), a government operative who's quite interested in the girl, what with her being something of a genetic experiment to create the perfect warrior.

Those physical abilities and her training allow her to escape the government facility that she soon learns is in Morocco. Needing means to get farther away, she ends up traveling with snarky teenager Sophie (JESSICA BARDEN), her younger brother Miles (ALDO MALAND) and their parents, Rachel (OLIVIA WILLIAMS) and Sebastian (JASON FLEMYNG), all of whom are vacationing and traveling abroad in an RV.

With Marissa enlisting the aid of goons such as Lewis (JOHN MacMILLIAN) and Isaacs (TOM HOLLANDER) to find her, Hanna has to use every trick, skill and bit of knowledge to avoid or defeat them, all as she tries to get to and meet her father at their predetermined rendezvous point.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those into action films featuring a girl as a killer will likely be drawn to it, as might anyone who's a fan of someone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For intense sequences of violence and action, some sexual material and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
