Hanna movie quotes come across cerebral but also disjointed. The story is a dark fairy tale about a girl’s coming of age story who 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 bit disappointed at the predictability of the plot.

Verdict: Despite it’s lack of depth, the movie is quirky enough to make it appealing and engaging.

[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.

Marissa: Interpol nabs him, that exposes him to BND, FSB, France. Do you really want every intelligence agency in Europe scratching at this threat?
