Five reasons why ‘Hanna’ is the best movie you’ll see this Spring

As noted by most theatrical distributors and even studio execs during this week’s ShoWest convention, er, CinemaCon in Las Vegas, the first quarter of 2011 wasn’t exactly the movie industry’s finest moment.  Sure, there have been worse stretches, but outside of wide releases for Oscar nominated films you could count the number of quality films on one hand.  April should improve this year’s track record on a number of fronts. One film opening next month that will be talked about for quite some time is Joe Wright’s “Hanna.”
This pundit has been a fan of Wright’s since he broke on the international scene with “Pride and Prejudice.”  He hit a high note with his follow up, the Oscar nominated “Atonement,” but even the underrated “The Soloist” is a keen example of his visual flair and rich attention to detail.  With “Hanna” he easily segues into action mode with an original thriller that constantly surprises and surpasses its source material. “Hanna” isn’t the sort of film that is usually remembered during awards season and that’s not why Wright made it (probably his mistake on “The Soloist”), but don’t be surprised if it ends up on numerous top ten lists this December.  To be blunt, it’s already the second best film I’ve seen this year.
