Technically well-made but overdone and preposterous action flick. I observed it through to the end but never suspended disbelief. Checked this out on the basis of director Joe Wright who did Atonement, and it sort of left me shaking my head. Cate Blanchett as a cold government assassin was as ridiculous and unbelievable as the rest of the movie. I was anxious and grateful for the end, only to be tricked by a false ending that was as typically overwrought and preposterous as the rest. Still, I guess some who like action flicks for their own sake and are willing to buy into whatever the plot is may like it. Going to the library doesn't automatically make people smart.

I like strong, female characters. Lots of running, guns and kicking.

Everyone involved buys into this wacky movie and that's why it works so well.

Merenwen’s May 09, 2018 review on the 2018 “Lady Bird” said “Fairly good acting, but I don't think it was Ronan's best. (My favourite role of hers was in Hanna, with How I Live Now being a close second.)” Noted that I rated Hanna 4/5 stars on Dec 19, 2011. Decided to watch it again for good measure. Felt that Ronan’s performance in Hanna was indeed excellent but impossible to compare with her LB role because they were very different films. Anyway, a very good action conspiracy story with Ronan's breakthru acting and wonderful cinematography in exotic locations. Don’t miss the short clip of “Alternate Ending” in “Deleted Scenes”.

Note: My 2011 comment was “A young teen was raised in isolation to hide and trained in "feme fatale skills". She re-entered civilization to face those CIA operatives who failed to terminate her as a baby girl.”

OK. Was left wondering if they were planning a sequel.

I saw this in 2011 when it was released and thought it was pretty good. This time I watch it and notice all the gaping holes in the plot. Like all the Jason Bourne movies. But still, entertaining and worth watching. It's not a bad movie, just geared towards a younger audience than myself.

I had never heard of Saoirse Ronan before recently, but this is one of her earlier works. I loved her in Lady Bird and her acting ability really stands out in this when she was just a teen.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie, but I was VERY pleasantly surprised. Once again, Saoirse Ronan delivers.

Watched this Oct 1 2016, enjoyed it, but I was left a little confused at the end. The scenery was breathtaking, but watch out if you are a bit squeamish, a bit gory in parts!

Refreshing entertaining young female kicks-butt movie. Saoirse Ronan did a very good job. Eric Bana & Cate Blanchett were well casted in their supporting roles as well.
