3.5 out of 10 Hanna is 16 years old. She is bright, inquisitive,
Mary from Limerick, 28 Nov 2012
Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) is 16 years old. She is bright, inquisitive, and a devoted daughter. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a soldier; these come from being raised by her widowed father Erik (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of North Finland. Erik has taught Hanna to hunt, put her through extreme self-defense workouts, and home-schooled her with only an encyclopedia and a book of fairy tales. Hanna has been living a life unlike any other teenager; her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. But out in the world there is unfinished business for Hanna's family, and it is with a combination of pride and apprehension that Erik realizes his daughter can no longer be held back

4.5 out of 10 Del Toro's Masterpiece
Rory from Dublin, 26 Apr 2010
This film encaptures the imagination of the viewer and then proceeds to slip from the harsh reality of life in Francoist Spain to the fantasy world created by a young girl as her means of escape. Del Toro pushes the boundries of special and CGI effects to create a fantasy world with a number of visually stunning characters and locations whose presence stays with the viewer long after the film has ended. He also recreates the grim reality of life in 1940s Spain and the performances of the leads

4.5 out of 10 Fantastic!
Brock from Limerick, 01 Sep 2010
I've seen about 40 odd movies so far this year, and this has been my most favourite, no doubt! It looks stunning, the fantasy scnees are worth writing home about and you can instantly see why this guy was a candidate for LOTR trilogy, though I think this is FAR superior. The film is of 2 stories - The resistance movement to Spannish facists, and the girl's coping mechanism for the trauma around here. Will stay with me for a long time. WATCH THIS!

5 out of 10 Magical
Ciaran from Dublin, 01 Jul 2007
As original a movie as you are likely to see, this is a compelling, mythical motion picture that will stretch your imagination and keep you immersed from start to finish. Visually perfect, brilliantly acted and with a superb score, this is film making at its best. Impossible to categorise, the plot follows a girl caught up in war on the one hand and in magical quests on the other. Captivating stuff.

What's it about....
Accompanied by her parents, Ofelia moves from a large Spanish city to a more rural area in the North of the country. Faced with the upheaval of moving home, an abusive stepfather and the general unpleasantness surrounding Franco's victory in 1944, Ofelia enters an imaginary world of creatures and demons, in a bid to escape. From Guillermo del Torro, the visionary director of THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE and CRONOS comes this frightening, yet fantastical film.
