quotes come across cerebral but also disjointed. The story is
a dark fairy tale about a girl’s coming of age
happens to also be a highly trained killer. Although this action packed
movie is entertaining enough, it does leave one
feeling as though the
script is incomplete and the plot a little too underdeveloped
as there isn’t enough
depth in the story. The narrative has such potential that you feel a
disappointed at the predictability of the plot. However, despite it's
lack of depth, Hanna
movie quotes are quirky enough to make it appealing and engaging.

lines; after shooting an arrow at a deer] Hanna: I
just missed your heart. [she points a gun at the
deer and shoot it dead]
[to Hanna from behind as
she's busy gutting the dear she's shot] Erik: Your
dead. Right now. I've killed you. [Hanna turns and throws
her knife at him]
wrong? Are you hurt? You were half asleep. You must always be ready.
Even when you're sleeping, think on your feet. Adapt... Hanna: ...or
die. I'll do better next time.
[reading from a book] Erik: The
great blue whale is the largest animal to have ever existed. It's heart
weighs thirteen hundred pounds, and the male has seven gallons of
te...testicles. [Hanna smiles] Erik: The
blue whale's music can be heard for over five hundred miles. A blue
whale's tongue weighs overs two and a half tons. Hanna: What
does music feel like? [Erik flips through the
pages of his book until he reaches the subject of music] Erik: Music;
a combination of sounds with a view to beauty of form and expression of
emotion. Hanna: I
want to hear it for myself. Erik: We've
all we need right here. Hanna: It's
not enough. I'm ready. [Erik doesn't answer] Hanna: Papa,
[repeating what she's
learned about her new identity] Hanna: I
live in Leipzig, German city. Population zero point seven million
[repeating what she's
learned about her new identity] Hanna: I
like literature and sport, in particular tennis and athletics. We live
at number seven, Vicenza Platz. I go to school at The Klaus College
Gymnazium and my best friends are Rudy Gunter and Clara Scheitz. I also
have dog called, Trudy.
[to Erik after seeing
and hearing an airplane for the first time] Hanna: Did
you see it? Did you hear it? It's like thunder! It was so beautiful!
[referring to the small
device in front of Erik] Hanna: What
is it? Erik: It
tells Marissa Wiegler where we are. If you think you're ready,
want to leave here, all you have to do is flip that switch. But once
it's done there's no going back. She won't stop until your dead, or she
is. Understand? [Hannah nods her head] Erik: I
won't be there to hold your hand. So be sure. Be sure it's what you
really want. [he looks at Hanna] Erik: It's
here. There's no rush.
[reading from a book] Erik: Like
a mongrel dog from the street of Moscow, it was the first animal to
ever return. She was launched into outer space on the third of
November, nineteen fifty seven. Scientists believed humans would be
unable to survive the conditions of outer space. So flights by animals
refute as experiments precursory to human submissions. A rocket was
not designed to be retrievable and like it has always been, it
returned to die. Hanna: But
she didn't, did she? Erik: They
couldn't bring the rocket back, remember? Hanna: I
remember. But sometimes I wish you would read it differently.
you hunt with me? Hanna: If
you want. Erik: Well,
it's up to you. Hanna: Me? Erik: Yes. Hanna: I'll
Wiegler. [she turn on the switch
on the device] Hanna: Come
and fine me.
Erik Heller, recruited nineteen ninety one, for SFK operative. He
became integral to our Counter Intelligence Ops in Eastern Europe and
Central Asia. His file ends in ninety four, there was no sign of life
until April eighteenth, nineteen ninety six, when his finger prints
were found on a twenty two caliber luger found beside of one, Johanna
Zadek. Johanna Zadek born nineteen seventy, German. She was spotted and
developed by Heller in nineteen ninety four, never recruited. Head of Ops:
Why was she being developed? Marissa: That's
not in the file. Let's keep on the past. Heller is a rogue asset. I
propose we go and pull him out. Head of Ops: We
got bigger problems, Marissa. Let Interpol pick him up. He's no longer
our responsibility. Marissa: Interpol
nabs him, that exposes him to BND, FSB, France. Do you really want
every intelligence agency in Europe scratching at this threat?
sorry, but we need to keep this contained, gentlemen. Keep it small. I
worked with this man. He knows things I don't think you wanna know. Head of Ops: I
appreciate your candor.
Wiegler. Erik: Then? Hanna: Post
card. Erik: Then? Hanna: What? Erik: The
address where we meet? Hanna: Wilhelm
Grimm House, Stefan Straza two sixty one, one-o-five-five-nine, Wilhelm
in Germany. Erik: What
else? Hanna: Adapt
or die. Erik: Think
on your feet. Hanna: Even
when I'm sleeping.
[Marissa is listening to
Lewis on her cell phone] Lewis: Erik
Heller escaped. Marissa: How
did that happen? Lewis: Unclear.
We think he got away in the snow storm or Marissa: One
man, one day, operation... Lewis: Look
there were many variables. Marissa: Just
find him, Lewis. Find him and bring him to me. Lewis: There
was a kid. Things got out of our control! [Marissa goes suddenly
goes silent] Lewis: Wiegler?
Wiegler, are you there? Marissa: Where
is she now?
[Hanna is being held in
a holding cell] Burton:
Hello Hanna. Hanna: Hello. Burton: My
name is Dr. Burton. Would you like to talk to me? Hanna: I
was told by my father to gain the upper hand. Burton: That's
very interesting. What else does you father tell you? Hanna: Where
am I? Burton: You're
in holding. Hanna: I've
never been in a room like this. Burton: It
must all be very strange for you. How long have you been in the forest?
[looking at all the
camera's in the cell] Hanna: Are
those cameras? Burton: Uhuh.
They're taking your picture right now, to keep a record. How does that
make you feel?
[Marissa and Lewis are
looking at Hanna through the TV monitors] Burton: Can
I get you something? What do you like? Music? Magazines? Just ask.
Anything at all. Hanna: I
want to speak to Marissa Wiegler. [speaking in the
microphone to Lewis] Marissa: Tell
her I'll be there tonight. Lewis: I
can handle this. Marissa: Just
do what you're told.
False Marissa: My
name is Marissa Wiegler. You wanted to speak with me. [Hanna looks at the
woman impersonating Marissa and the guard that's entered the cell] False Marissa: [to the guard] You
can wait outside. [the guard leaves the
cell] Hanna: Where
am I? False Marissa: You're
in a safe place, sweetie. Hanna: Where
did you meet my father? [Marissa who's watching
on the TV monitor gives false Marissa instructions on what to say] Marissa: Erik.
False Marissa: [to Hanna] You mean
Erik? [Hanna looks at her] False Marissa: Yes. [Marissa gives false
Marissa instructions over the microphone] Marissa: I
met him by a news kiosk at Alexander Platz. East Berlin. False Marissa: [to Hanna] I met
him at a news kiosk, Alexander Platz. [to false Marissa] Marissa: Say
it was raining. False Marissa: [to Hanna] In the
rain. [to false Marissa] Marissa: Just
arrived from Prague. False Marissa: [to Hanna] He'd
just arrived from Prague.
False Marissa: You
know where your father is? Did he tell you where he was goin'?
Hanna bursts into tears False Marissa: We're
all worried about him. It's okay. [Hanna in tears hugs
false Marissa tightly, Lewis gives false Marissa
Agent, keep your distance.
[false Marissa consoles Hanna] False Marissa: It's
okay. It's okay. Burton: Do
you want me to give her something. False Marissa: I
think that might be necessary. Lewis: Abort. [Burton walks to the
cell to give Hanna a shot] Lewis: I
repeat, Agent, abort! [just as the cell door
is about to be opened Hanna suddenly twists false Marissa's neck
[to Marissa who's just
shot at the car Johanna was in with Erik and baby Hanna] Johanna
Zadek: She will never be yours.
[after Hanna has
escaped from the compound] Sophie: Hey.
Hello? [Hanna doesn't reply] Sophie: Don't
you speak English? It's not your fault if you can't. M.I.A
didn't speak English till she was eight, because she was like, a
refugee or something from Sri Lanka. Now she's a pop star, in America
too. But don't worry if you can't speak English yet. Miles: Who's
she? Sophie: I
found her. She can't speak English. She's from Sri Lanka. Hanna: I'm
from Germany. Sophie: Oh. Hanna: I
live in Leipzig, population zero point seven million peoples.
We live at number seven, Vicenza Platz. I
like literature and sport, in particular tennis and
athletics. I go to school at The Klaus College
Gymnazium and my best friends are Rudy Gunter and Clara Scheitz. Sophie: They
sound fun. Hanna: I
also have dog called Trudy. Miles: We
had a dog called Vincent. He went mad and died.
[on the phone] Lewis: Tactiles
says she's in the desert, south east of vessel we're in. Marissa: Focus
all operations on Heller. Lewis: Are
you saying the girl's not of interest to us. Marissa: Yes,
of course she's of interest, Lewis. But not an immediate threat to the
security of the United States of America. Erik Heller is the immediate
threat. Focus on Heller.
[Miles spots Hanna
running out of her hotel room] Miles: It's
the German girl! Sophie: It's
Kraut in a big Djellaba. Like quail or lesbo. I think I'd quite like to
be lesbian. But not one of those fat ones, one who's like, a
supermodel. But who don't hold hands, and I think I'd probably marry a
man. Hanna: What?
kiss? [turning to look at the
woman dancing on the stage at a nightclub] Marissa: She's
a bit old for you, isn't she? Isaacs: She
has male and female genetalias. Marissa: And
you love her just the way she is. Isaacs: I
like to give people what they want.
do you want, Marissa? Marissa: Erik
Heller is still alive. Isaacs: Of
course. Marissa: And
the girl. Isaacs: Ah.
Why are you here precisely? Marissa: I
need you. Isaacs: You
need me? Little old me! I'm very flattered. Marissa: I
need your talents, darlin'. I need you to do things my agency will not
let me do.
the girl or Erik? Marissa: She's
in Morocco. It's all in the envelope. Let me worry about Erik. Isaacs: Shall
I kill her? Marissa: Just
find her. [she kisses him on the
cheek and turns to leave] Isaacs: Marissa?
Did she turn out as you hoped? Marissa: Better.
[to Hanna whilst having
dinner at a restaurant] Sophie: Mum
is against plastic surgery. Rachel: I
am. Sophie: Mum
doesn't even wear make-up. Rachel: I
don't. I think it's dishonest. This is my face. Take it or leave it! If
you study History of Art, Anthropology... Sebastian:
Rachel got a first at Cambridge. Rachel: ...you
learn that red lipstick mimic arousal and suggests the geography of the
labia minora. Sophie: Puke! Rachel: Where
as I have a lot of natural red pigments in my lips, and so I really
don't need it.
[Hanna watches them in
amusement as they argue] Sophie: It's
embarrassing! Sebastian: Just
grow up! All right? Sophie: Grow
up? Sebastian: Yeah! Sophie: Oh,
because yesterday mum was saying how I shouldn't act beyond my years. Rachel: No,
it does leave her with mixed messages, darling. Because we're trying to
communicate to her how to enjoy childhood. Sebastian: I
just want her to stop saying vomitory, all right? [Miles mimics vomiting] Sebastian: Oi!
It's not funny.
Hanna. Hanna? [Hanna looks at
Sebastian] Sebastian: Quite
impressed about you traveling around on your own. Hanna: My
father encourages me to be independent. Rachel: You
see, that's wonderful. I was back packing at your age. Sebastian: And
where is he, your father? Rachel: I
spent a heavenly summer, just island hopping around Greece, Sebastian: Island
hopping around Greece! Rachel: What? Sebastian: No.
It's valuable. Our experience makes us who we are. Isn't that right,
kids? [Hanna nods her head in
Hanna, is your mum and dad still together? Hanna: My
mother is dead. Sophie: Nice
one, dad! Sebastian: I'm
sorry to hear that. I lost my mum when I was very young, so... Hanna: It's
all right. It happened a long time ago. Rachel: Hanna,
what did your mum die of? Hanna: Three
bullets. [Sebastian chokes on his
drink] Rachel: That's
