Excellent show, but for more mature teens. Missing from the Common Sense review is the use of the C word and a sex scene where no nudity is shown. This may affect parents' decision-making. The IMDb review is more thorough if you're still trying to decide.

Top notch

Great series Frome the original movie perspective and taken further.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (9 ):
Kids say (9 ):

The draw of the 2011 film the series is based on is often visual: chases through abandoned theme parks and riveting characters with strange quirks. But Amazon's Hanna has little of that same inspiration. Despite being a chase across Europe, the show looks just as bland as any number of other current TV dramas. The characterization is equally lacking, as the show seems to be withholding Erik's and Marissa's motivations for a big reveal. But it's still somewhat compelling, largely on the strength of Esme Creed-Miles' assured performance as the title character and the relatability of her struggle. She may have been CIA-trained from birth, but she's really just a kid trying to leave home for the first time.
