Awesome / Hanna

Go To

Both versions

  • Erik gets one at the start, when he sneaks up on Hanna gutting a deer and declares her dead. You really appreciate this later, as Hanna's badassitude starts to shine through.
  • Hanna is a glorious example of Little Miss Badass, as demonstrated by her escape from the underground facility in both versions. As badass as it is effortless. In the film version, the music by The Chemical Brothers only makes it better.

2011 Film

  • The chase scene in the Container Maze. Includes:
    • Hanna freeing herself from the grip of Titch and Razor (the skinhead mooks) and Isaacs, and hopping between containers to ambush the mooks. For a moment, the hunters become the hunted.
    • Hanna's hand-to-hand fight with Titch She kicks his ass through and through and parries the few blows he tries to land. Had Razor not attracted Hanna's attention by threatening Sophie, Titch would be dead.
    • Hanna saving Sophie from Razor by parrying his knife attacks and turning the knife against him.
    • Hanna's long jump to get out of the Container Maze, putting a good distance between her and Isaacs.
  • Hanna being on guard all the time, even when fast asleep.
  • The Oner following Erik in a street of Berlin then in a deserted subway and concluding with him wiping the floor with about five trained opponents sent by Marissa. The music by The Chemical Brothers only heightens the awesome.
