->''"I just missed your heart."''

An offbeat 2011 action-thriller (with SpeculativeFiction elements) directed by Creator/JoeWright and starring Creator/SaoirseRonan, Creator/EricBana, Creator/CateBlanchett and Creator/TomHollander.

Hanna (Ronan) is a teenage girl brought up in the frozen wastes of Finland with her father Erik (Bana) who has been training her to be the perfect assassin. On a mission from her father, Hanna treks across Europe with the goal of killing a shadowy CIA operative, Marissa Wiegler (Blanchett), who wants to see her and Erik dead and has sent her sadistic henchman Isaacs (Hollander) after them. Hanna begins to uncover details of her past and about her true nature all the while poignantly coming to grips with a totally unfamiliar world and kicking more than the occasional ass.

Be warned: spoilers ahead.
!!Tropes include:

* AbandonedPlayground:
** Mr. Grimm lives in an abandoned theme park. It is filmed in an actual abandoned theme park.
** There is another, smaller, ran-down playground where Erik and Isaacs fight.
* TheAce: Hanna Heller, 15-year old TeenGenius assassin extraordinaire.
%%* BrokenAce: Hanna becomes one by the end of the film.
%%* ActingUnnatural: The agent following Erik down the stairs.
%%* ActionDad: Erik Heller, skilled former CIA agent who was the one who trained Hanna and raised her, [[spoiler:even if he was not her biological father]].
* ActionGirl: Hanna, a teenage girl who knows how to kick lots of ass.
%%* AdorablyPrecociousChild: Hanna, arguably.
%%* {{Adorkable}}: Hanna, as well as Erik, to an extent.
%%* AirVentPassageway
* AllThereInTheManual:
** The script reveals that Isaacs' first name is Michael, and his henchmen are named Titch and Razor.
** Marissa's past dealings with Erik are left up to the viewer's interpretation in the film, but the script outright states that [[spoiler: they are both American and were married at the time of the SuperSoldier experiments]].
* AllWorkVsAllPlay: Sophie takes Hanna on a date to a Flamenco festival, where she learns to have fun for the very first time.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Rachel is pretty open-minded about what it's acceptable to talk to children about; Sophie clearly wishes she were a bit ''less'' so.
* AmbiguousInnocence: Hanna. The story questions the amount of distance between Hanna's willingness to kill, and her spiritual and emotional purity.
* AmbiguouslyBi: Sophie is eager to impress one of the Spanish boys with whom she and Hanna go to a night out with, but she seems to enjoy [[spoiler: Hanna's kiss]].
* AmbiguouslyGay: Hanna [[spoiler: rejects the Spanish boy's kiss, but kisses Sophie later on]]. Considering her upbringing, it's not likely that sexuality is something she understands very well.
* AnimalMotifs: Goes hand in hand with FairyTaleMotifs. For example, Marissa is both TheBigBadWolf (obsessed with her teeth, [[Literature/LittleRedRidingHood pursues a little girl]], [[spoiler:kills said girl's grandmother,]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext emerges from a wolf's maw]] in the climax) and the [[CunningLikeAFox Cunning Vixen]] ([[EvilRedhead red-headed]], crafty and mendacious).
* AnyoneCanDie: [[spoiler: By the end of the film, nearly everyone except Hanna is dead]].
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Sophie, jumping from one topic to the next mid-sentence.
* BadassAdorable: Think of [[Film/TheBourneSeries Jason Bourne]] in the body of a 16 year old blonde girl. Hanna is cute as a button, and she'll floor you with no trouble at all.
* BadassBookworm: Hanna with her assassin training and encyclopaedic knowledge.
* BadassFamily: Erik and Hanna are trained assassins and father and daughter, [[spoiler: although they're not actually blood-related]].
* BerserkButton: Marissa not having children seems to be a sore spot for her.
* BigBad: Marissa is both the target of Erik and Hanna and the threat they face.
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Hanna is free to live a normal life at last, but everyone she loves is either dead or left to an ambiguous fate]].
* BodyDouble: Marissa sends one in to meet with Hanna rather than go near her herself.
* {{Bookends}}: [[spoiler:"I just missed your heart," followed by a gunshot and a cut to the title.]]
* BourgeoisBohemian: Sophie's parents, Rachel and Sebastian, seem to be upper-middle class in socioeconomic terms and Especially Rachel.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Sophie is bratty, boy-crazy and self-centered. [[HiddenDepths At first]].
* BrutalHonesty: In the sense of lacking tact rather than being nice. When asked how her mother died, Hanna bluntly responds that she was shot three times.
* CallToAdventure: Hanna believes she's "ready" for the world. When Erik agrees, he gives her a radio transponder that will reveal their position to the CIA (specifically, Marissa) if she chooses to switch it on.
* CampStraight: Isaacs' sexuality is pretty ambiguous given the back-alley prostitution club he runs, but he's definitely very camp.
* ChekhovsGun:
** The camera focused on Wiegler's shoes more than strictly necessary, but it's still surprising [[spoiler: that they cause her to trip and fall to her death.]]
* ChildSoldiers: Hanna turns out to be the result of [[spoiler:a CIA experiment]] to create them.
* {{CIA}}: It was involved in some shady stuff. [[spoiler:They had been genetically modifying fetuses to grow up to be efficient killing machines.]] It's not entirely clear whether this was a CIA operation or a Soviet/East German operation that the CIA took over when Communism fell.
* ClimbingClimax: The climax involves Hanna and Marissa having to climb through the abandoned amusement park where Mr. Grimm lived.
%%* ColorMotif: Blue and gray for Hanna, [[GreenEyedMonster green]] for Marissa, and pink for Sophie.
* CombatParkour: Hanna's fighting style, using LeParkour to confuse and separate her enemies, her agility to [[DeadlyDodging dodge their stronger blows]] and her TykeBomb TrainingFromHell to exploit any opening instinctively.
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: Hanna, who was taught from toddlerhood how to spill blood and snap necks.
* ContainerMaze: Features a particularly epic chase scene through one of these. WordOfGod says the setting was chosen because the stacks of containers were reminiscent of the building blocks of some gigantic child.
* ContrivedCoincidence: This is how Hanna finds her medical files; and accidentally stumbled upon Sophie once, twice, three times throughout the film.
* CreepyChild:
** Hanna is incredibly sweet, innocent and soft-spoken...and will shoot a soldier in the face without hesitation.
** Miles, Sophie's little brother, takes a lot of pictures but doesn't talk much.
%%* CreepyGood: Hanna, again.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Hanna's assassin training. It's the only thing Erik taught her, which proves to be a huge weakness.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Issacs and his henchman [[spoiler:hang Mr. Grimm by the ankles and use him for target practise with a makeshift bow]].
* CursedWithAwesome: Hanna's training. She's probably the greatest assassin of all time, but it's the only thing she knows how to do.
%%* CuteBruiser: Hanna through and through.
* DeathByFallingOver: [[spoiler:Marissa. Although it was the bullet to the heart that finished her off, slipping and falling down the slide (while having already lost a lot of blood from an arrow to the hip) played a significant role in her [[JustForPun downfall]]]].
* DepravedBisexual: Isaacs runs a back-alley prostitution club that caters to extreme sexual tastes.
%%* TheDragon: Isaacs to Marissa.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Hanna goes through hell so she can finally be left alone. At the end, [[spoiler: she tries to turn her back on Marissa and walk away because she's sick of the bloodshed, but Marissa makes it clear that she won't let this end until one of them is dead]].
* ElaborateUndergroundBase: The Moroccan facility Hanna is brought in is an underground bunker complex with tunnels and huge air vent systems.
%%* EmotionlessGirl: Hanna, [[spoiler:or so it seems for a while.]]
%%* EmotionsVsStoicism: One theme of the movie.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Isaac's skinhead mooks are [[http://oi60.tinypic.com/al1c0k.jpg Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice]].
* EverybodysDeadDave: [[spoiler:By the end of the movie, Hanna is probably the only named character still alive (five characters if Sophie and her family were left alive, since whether or not they were killed is up to debate), and how long that's true depends on how bad the gunshot wound was. The alternate ending (which, in all honesty, really just adds to the movie's ending rather than change it) shows that she (and Sophie's family) does survive however.]]
%%* EvilIsHammy: Isaacs all the way.
* EvilRedhead: Marissa is a ruthless Senior Officer of the CIA who hires sadistic goons and doesn't mind ordering the death of an entire innocent family .
* FairyTaleMotifs: All over the place. For instance, Marissa is equated with the Big Bad Wolf, coming out of the mouth of one at the Spreepark.
* FantasyForbiddingFather: Erik's training means Hanna can take down a reindeer or a squad of goons, he drills her on several languages and reads the encyclopaedia to her. But things like music and fiction are off-message, and Hanna only reads a book of fairy tales. He purposefully withholds direct affection and emotion and anything else that could be a distraction from her training, which proves to be a weakness for her when she enters the world. In fact, part of the story is about her discovering feelings and human experiences after being deprived of them her whole life.
* FirstKiss: Hanna backs out of one with the Spanish boy, but [[spoiler: she kisses Sophie later on]].
* {{Foil}}: Sophie's carefree enthusiasm to Hanna's ultra-serious and disciplined personality.
* FracturedFairyTale: An interpretation of the movie, thanks to the numerous fairy-tale {{Shout Out}}s.
* AFriendInNeed: Hanna saves Sophie from one of Isaacs' men. Sophie returns the favor by not telling Marissa anything about her whereabouts.
%%* GenkiGirl: Sophie.
* GoneHorriblyRight: [[spoiler: The SuperSoldier experiment. Hanna turned out just as it was planned. Too bad the project was shut down and now they have to fight ''her''.]]
* GoryDiscretionShot: Used several times, particularly when [[spoiler:Marissa shoots Hanna's grandmother and when Erik impales Isaacs]], probably to keep the PG-13 rating. Still, it's pretty intense.
* GranolaGirl: Rachel seems to be this, what with her lectures about not wearing make-up and her general hippie tendencies.
* {{Grimmification}}: Kind of. The movie can be interpreted as a [[FracturedFairyTale fractured modern fairy-tale]] that plays the horror in its sources for all its worth. Fittingly, Hanna owns a copy of Grimm's fables, and an abandoned Grimm-themed amusement park ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spreepark Spreepark]]) is featured heavily in the third act, watched over by a man named Knepfler Grimm.
%%* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Hanna.
* HatesBeingTouched: Implied with Hanna, given her reaction to the Spanish boy, although it owes more to her training than to outright sensitivity.
* HiddenDepths: Hanna comes off as cold and disconnected on the outside, but experiences very strong emotions and a deep sense of wonder.
%%* HitmanWithAHeart: [[spoiler:Hanna, again.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: At the end of the film, [[spoiler:Marissa is killed with her own Walther [=PP=] by Hanna.]]
* IAmNotYourFather: [[spoiler: Erik eventually reveals to Hanna that he's actually not her biological father. It seemed to genuinely pain him to admit it.]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal: [[spoiler: Hanna realizes this after her time with Sophie and discovering the circumstances of her birth and upbringing]].
* IMissMom: Hanna keeps a photo of her dead mother by her bedside.
* IdiotBall: Riding along in Sophie's family's camper van, Hanna notices that they are being tailed, presumably by people wishing to hunt her down. She says nothing about this, even when Sophie's mother stops to read the map. It's possible that she didn't want to alarm the family by telling them.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: The fate of [[spoiler:Isaacs]], although we don't really see it (see GoryDiscretionShot).
%%* ImpromptuTracheotomy: "Can you lend me your pen?"
* ImprovisedWeapon: Need an instant bow to shoot your arrow? [[spoiler: Why not a bungee cord?]]
* IncrediblyObviousTail: Even if it weren't Hanna they were following, Marissa's henchmen blow any attempt at stealth by spending hours directly tailing the vehicle she's in. They only get to spend that long because the oblivious family they're tailing has no idea what's going on.
%%* IndyHatRoll: Hanna, as she escaped the CIA holding facility.
* InformedAbility: Isaacs is introduced as a super badass killer even [[LadyOfWar Marissa]] respects, but we see him only kill a defenseless old Moroccan guy, threaten a defenseless family and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking whistle ominously]]; as soon as he's squared off against a skilled opponent (Erik) he goes down much easier than his own goons just did.
* InternalizedCategorism: After learning of her [[spoiler: SuperSoldier origins, Hanna brands herself as a freak. Erik assures her she is not and that he loves her no matter what]].
* IronicNurseryTune: Isaacs' leitmotif ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eE4_XlnNCcs&feature=channel_video_title The Devil is in the Details]]) sounds like this.
* JumpScare: Hanna opens the curtains to a window and we see Marissa's eye. Complete with ScareChord.
* KickTheDog: Marissa kills Hannaís grandmother even though by that that point there wasnít any reason to: it wouldíve been much more prudent to just set a watch on her in case Hanna arrived there later.
%%* LaserGuidedTykeBomb: [[spoiler:Hanna.]]
* LastOfHerKind: [[spoiler:Hanna is the sole survivor of a super soldier program terminated by Marissa.]]
* LeaveNoWitnesses: Isaacs is fond of torturing and killing the people he interrogates. Whether or not Marissa let [[spoiler: Sophie and her family]] go free is left up in the air.
* LeParkour: Hanna does a little bit of parkour in the shipping-container scene.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Isaacs' theme, "The Devil is in the Details", first heard in the club, then later with Isaacs whistling. Hanna also gets her own theme, aptly titled "Hanna's theme."
* LiteralMetaphor: Done unintentionally by Marissa. When her superior wants her to stand down, she refuses, saying "No, I am inches...". She doesn't realize how true that is.
%%* LittleMissBadass
* MaliciousSlander: During their interrogation, Marissa tells [[spoiler: Sophie's family]] that Hanna's father murdered her mother.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Sophie seems to play this role for Hanna, exposing her to fun experiences for the first time in her life and forcing her to bring out her emotions.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Hanna's abilities are deliberately ambiguous; she never does anything that would be clearly impossible for a girl her size, so how much of her deadliness is due to [[spoiler: genetic engineering]] and how much is due to her TrainingFromHell is left unclear.
* MeaningfulEcho: Hanna's "I just missed your heart." [[spoiler:First said to a reindeer she hunts and kills at the beginning of the film, then said to Marissa when she kills her at the end of the film.]]
* MessyHair: Hanna lets her hair grow free.
* MilitariesAreUseless: ďA loose operative is likely to be in the house. Letís send only two people in and wait outside.Ē Or: ďA prisoner has escaped! Letís just get all together and run uselessly in the same direction.Ē
* MotorMouth: Sophie just can't stop talking.
* MuggleBestFriend: Sophie, the average teen girl compared to a genetically engineered killing machine like Hanna.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Hanna is wiry to say the least, but has no trouble overpowering grown men.
* MutualKill: By the film's end, [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in that [[spoiler: Hanna survives while Marissa was mortally wounded.]]
* MysteriousPast: Marissa and Erik. Why they hate each other is up to interpretation, but what is known is that [[spoiler: they worked together in the SuperSoldier program that created Hanna, and were possibly romantically involved with each other, up until Marissa terminated the other children]].
* NaiveNewcomer: The film is about Hanna discovering the world for the first time.
* NeatFreak: Marissa has an obsession with brushing her teeth; she's introduced doing so, and is later shown brushing them with an electric toothbrush, to the point of drawing blood.
* NeckSnap:
** Hanna uses a rare from-the-front version to kill [[spoiler:the false Marissa.]]
** Erik delivers a pretty brutal one to [[spoiler: Isaacs' hitman]] by slamming him down against one of the metal rungs on a playground structure.
* NervesOfSteel: Hanna is never fazed, even when she's in danger.
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: [[spoiler: Marissa kills Erik before he gets to reconcile with Hanna]].
* NoPeripheralVision: None of the drivers notice the open manhole right in front of them.
* NoSocialSkills: Hanna never had the chance to grow up in society, as the only person she ever saw in her life before age 16 was Erik.
* NotSoInnocentWhistle: Isaacs has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Be1_6rqKMM particularly creepy one]].
* ObiWanMoment: [[spoiler: Erik, just before Marissa shoots him:]]
-->'''Marissa:''' Why now, Erik?\\
'''Erik:''' Kids grow up.
* OddFriendship: The quiet, stoic and socially awkward Hanna befriends the bratty and superficial Spohie.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome:
** Hanna's first kills. When the CIA surrounds Erik's cabin, we see three soldiers enter the cabin. Later, we see them on the floor, necks snapped, with Hanna perched innocently on the landing.
** Eriks fights and kills a policeman when he arrives at Denmark. Moments after swimming for several hours straight across the North Sea.
* OminousMusicBoxTune: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vbkp8yRxUGI The Sandman.]]
* {{Omniglot}}: Hanna is incredibly adept at foreign languages.
* TheOner:
** Uses a lot of long, wide shots. A particularly impressive one is the subway scene, going from a long walk to an expertly choreographed brawl with a handful of {{mooks}}.
** The chase scene in the ContainerMaze is this up until we see Sophie.
* OneWordTitle: As a ProtagonistTitle
* OohMeAccentsSlipping:
** Hanna's German accent varies in thickness, which is funny considering that when she actually does speak German, her pronunciation sounds heavily off, as any native speaker will immediately recognize. It's worth noting that it's not entirely certain what Hanna's first language is supposed to be.
** Australian Creator/CateBlanchett dons a Southern accent. It's not entirely convincing, although the character is implied to be German.
** Also in-universe, Hanna and Erik's accents show up even when they're speaking foreign languages.
* OrbitalShot:
** There's one in a scene where Hanna is running through some large, wide, circular tunnels.
** Done a little bit in TheOner subway fight scene.
* OutDamnedSpot: The first time we see Marissa, she wakes up and goes through her morning routine, including brushing her teeth. Later, as she's wound up by events, we see her brushing her teeth again, hard enough to draw blood.
%%* PapaWolf: Erik.
%%* PhoneTraceRace
%%* PintSizedPowerhouse: Guess who.
* PosthumousCharacter: Johanna Zadek, Hanna's mother, is long dead before the events of the film, but is still brought up constantly by several characters.
* PrecociousCrush: Sophie's little brother Miles has a crush on Hanna.
* ProperlyParanoid: Marissa through and through, right down to her BodyDouble.
* ProtagonistTitle
%%* PurityPersonified: Hanna.
* PuttingOnTheReich: Isaac's goons dress like neo-Nazi skinheads, but they're actually S.H.A.R.P. skinheads.
* TheQuietOne: Hanna in social situations prefers to be silent.
* RaisedByWolves: Erik might have taught Hanna to be a brutal fighter, drilled the encyclopedia and several languages into her, but basic human interaction is a bit beyond her. Hanna's time with Sophie's family particularly emphasizes this, her FirstKiss being an excellent example.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:After being the "recruiter" of the super-soldier experiment, Erik dedicates the last fourteen years of his life ensuring that Hanna will have the strength to survive, even attempting to give her a good (albeit incomplete) academic education. After Hanna learns the truth about him, he draws everyone's attention so she can get away. Just as he dispatches the hitmen, Marissa finally catches up with him and kills him.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Sophie and Hanna, {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in that Sophie wears pink and Hanna wears blue in many of their scenes together.
* RedShirtArmy: Refreshingly scarce. There are a few RedShirt deaths, but not as much as you might expect in an action movie.
* ReluctantWarrior: By the end of the film, [[spoiler: Hanna has no desire to fight anymore, realizing that she was selfishly forced into a lifestyle that she had no say in]].
%%* RevealingCoverup
* RevengeBeforeReason: Marissa seems to be more driven towards revenge against Erik for refusing to terminate the super soldier program when he saved Hanna, plus the undertone of them apprently having been a romantic couple before the end of the program. She even states explicitly that she wants to be the last person Erik sees.
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: Sophie and Hanna develop a very intense friendship that appears romantic, to the point that they even have a kiss, Hanna's first (considering Hanna's upbringing, it's not likely that she saw anything sexual in it, but Sophie doesn't seem to mind).
* RuleOfSymbolism: In the context of a modern thriller, the film features some fairly unbelievable situations and locations, but they serve the film well, giving it its signature otherworldly feel.
* SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining: Hanna is a total badass, but socially inept and new to the world. This is particularly noticeable in the scene in the Moroccan hotel when she is overwhelmed by the sensory input from all of the electric gadgets around.
* SceneryGorn: The scenes in Berlin shows all the worst parts of the city: the slums, the abandoned amusement park.
* SceneryPorn: There are beautiful shots of a frozen lake in Finland and the deserts of Morocco. There's also the decaying Spreepark in Berlin.
* SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou: Saoirse Ronan is about to shoot you with an arrow.
* SensoryOverload: Hanna has had virtually no interaction with modern technology. You can imagine the panic when she finds herself surrounded by a boiling electrical kettle, a loud TV, a humming ceiling fan and the buzz of flickering florescent lights. It really doesn't help that some military helicopters are seen on TV, considering the CIA raided her house with helecopters.
* ShipTease: [[LesYay Hanna and Sophie]]. It's the strongest connection Hanna makes. They're seen holding hands. Also, [[spoiler: they kiss, though the commentary suggests that Hanna sees a kiss as a sign of love, not sex]]. Sophie is also still willing to lie for her even after she sees Hanna brutally beat people. And then there's the fact that Sophie's first thought upon meeting Hanna again was 'I might like to be a lesbian.'
* ShownTheirWork: When fleeing from the Galinki faculty, Erik and Johanna are driving a Polish car ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FSO_Polonez Polonez]]), which was heavily in use during the 1990s. It even spots a period-accurate registration plates.
* ShrinkingViolet:
** Hanna to the extreme, due to having no human contact her whole life except for Erik.
** Sophie's brother Miles is pretty shy, probably owing to his PrecociousCrush on Hanna.
* SkilledButNaive: Hanna: an expert assassin who speaks every major language and possesses an encyclopedic knowledge on the world, who was taught nothing about social interaction.
* SkirtOverSlacks: Worn by Hanna during the flamenco date scene.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: Uniquely for an action film, it leans towards idealism. Hanna even tells Marissa at the end [[spoiler: that she doesn't want to hurt anybody anymore]].
* SmugSnake: Marissa shows just enough insecurity and vulnerability to be this.
* SpitTake: Sebastian has one of these when Hanna joins them for dinner:
-->'''Rachel:''' [[spoiler:What did your mother die of, Hanna?]]\\
'''Hanna:''' ''[deadpan]'' [[spoiler:Three bullets.]]\\
'''Sebastian:''' ''[{{spit take}}]''
* SpySpeak: Hanna's postcard to Erik, which simply says "the witch is dead".
%%* StepfordSmiler: Marissa.
* SwissCheeseSecurity: There is only one door between the captive and her freedom ó no additional blocked checkpoints, doors, or gates between her and the convenient AirVentPassageway.
%%* TheStoic: Hanna.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Hanna is genuinely sweet and kindhearted, but is accustomed to being distant and keeping to herself.
* SuperOCD: Implied with Marissa. The way she brushes her teeth, combined with her desire to hunt down Hanna and Erik to "tie up loose ends" and her generally anxious and prowling personality.
* SuperSoldier: [[spoiler:Hanna is the sole survivor from one of these programs terminated by Marissa. If you go to [[http://www.thegalinkaproject.com the viral website]] you can view a picture of her personnel file - apparently the CIA was growing super-soldiers for the United States Army. Whether the Army was involved, or even KNEW, is unknown - especially as any apparent Army personnel in on the project could be CIA plants (not that any Army personnel are depicted in the movie...).]]
* SurvivalMantra: "Adapt or die. Think on my feet; even when I'm sleeping..."
%%* TeenGenius: Hanna.
* TeenSuperspy: Hanna, in a sense. She was trained as such by her father, a rogue CIA agent who subjected her to TrainingFromHell in order to prepare her for the day when his former bosses came for them, and [[spoiler:she's the sole survivor of a SuperSoldier program]]. She could easily be seen as a {{deconstruction}}, showing just how a teenage girl would get enmeshed in spy antics in real life.
* TheOnlyOneITrust: Sophie tells Hanna that they can only be friends if they're honest with each other, forcing Hanna to put her trust in her and explain her mission.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Hanna is the unkempt tomboy to Sophie's more typically bratty girly girl.
* TooDumbToLive:
** [[spoiler:The BodyDouble. She is repeatedly told to break physical contact from Hanna after being "hugged," and then she fails to heed the multiple orders to abort altogether. She's too busy trying to console a girl who needed detaining and a psych evaluation ''while'' pretending to be somebody else who was wary enough of the situation to send in a doppelganger in the first place.]]
** [[spoiler: Issacs, in his efforts to follow Hanna, literally tailgates her for several hours.]]
** [[spoiler: The agents that try to kill Erik catch him in an open, empty subway platform, and they have guns. They could just shoot him ... but instead try to grab him first, allowing Erik to fight them hand to hand, where he has the advantage. And they knew he was very dangerous. (However, Marissa ''did'' want Erik alive, so incapacitation was probably their objective.)]]
%%* TrailersAlwaysSpoil
* TrainingFromHell: Hanna spent her childhood learning to be constantly on guard, even while sleeping, with her father springing attacks without warning.
%%* TrainingMontage: There is one at the beginning.
%%* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: And ''how''.
* TurnTheOtherCheek: Unlike Erik, [[spoiler: Hanna has no ill will towards Marissa, and by the end only wants to live in peace]].
%%* TykeBomb: Hanna, obviously.
* UndersideRide: Hanna grabs onto the bottom of an armored vehicle from an access tunnel, clings to it, and drops off, momentum be damned.
* UndignifiedDeath: [[spoiler: Marissa dies after falling down a slide with an arrow in her chest. It's Hanna who walks over to her, picks up her gun, and puts her out of her misery]].

** Sophie's mother, Rachel is a fan of this trope in general.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: What happened to Sophie and her family after Marissa and Isaacs interrogated them is not known. We do get to see [[FaceOnAMilkCarton missing posters for them]]. The script outright shows that they survived - [[spoiler: Hanna sends a postcard to Sophie at the end, so that's something, at least.]]
