David Farr’s script sticks to the same just-north-of-realistic approach as Farr’s movie did (yup, he co-wrote that, too), while still delivering all the ass-kicking spy action fans can hope for.

At its tautest, Hanna doesn’t so much grip you as sit figuratively on your chest, forcing all the breath out.

After seeing brief flashes of her in action on her home turf – fast, efficient, crafty – the prospect of Hanna operating in a modern urban environment is tantalising enough to tune in for the full season.

Hollywood Reporter

The folkloric nature of the movie allowed all of the characters to be archetypes and excused any broad strokes of performance. The TV series has done little to suggest that expositionalizing them makes them better characters.

Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone

For all of its various attempts to balance Eastern European espionage, half-hearted explorations of parenting and femininity, a youth drama, a father-daughter story, a pulse-pounding conspiracy thriller, a character study and the kind of pulp pleasure where a young girl can gun down an army without blinking, it never really finds a groove to settle into.

Hanna really doesn’t have any drive outside of shepherding the character between these shoot-em-ups. Which is a shame, given the uniqueness of that character...

That “Hanna” the television show so badly misunderstands what had been appealing about “Hanna” the film may have something to do with the creative mandates of peak TV-era genre fare.

The season’s conclusion asks as many questions as it answers, appearing to exist only so that Hanna may sustain itself, offering more henchman bones for Hanna to snap without wondering whether the character should, or even wants to, keep snapping them.
