The story-line is rooted in science fiction. Johanna / Hanna is the product of a programme to create a number of human beings with an exceptional talent for killing. Her Dad, played by Eric Bana, isn't her biological father, (we never get to know who the biological father is), and it wasn't at all clear to me that her mother in the film really was 100% her mother and not just a womb for hire.
A number of people like Hanna are created / engendered artificially, and most are "retired from service" by the CIA / Cate Blanchett, but Hanna was saved by her rogue ex-CIA agent "Dad" / Eric Bana and brought up secretly by him in a remote log cabin somewhere near the North Pole until he feels that Hanna is both old enough and well prepared enough to be able to take on a Cate Blanchett / CIA determined to retire from service absolutely all the artificially created human beings, including the last one still alive, Hanna.
The aim of Hanna's "Dad" / Eric Bana is to draw out Cate Blanchett and have Hanna kill Cate Blanchett, and a long series of fast paced adventures ensue, with plenty of violence and corpses, that do indeed culminate in Hanna killing Cate Blanchett.
The film is, I think, in places, clunky, and definitely not absolutely top flight, but it is one that I have quite happily watched more than once, and I am feeling generous so I am giving the film five stars, although, arguably, those reviewers who have given it four stars are closer to its true worth.
