ClearPlay In Action!

There are about ten instances of language, including one F word and a few religious exclamations. ClearPlay cleans these up along with some small bits of sexual dialogue. The film has several fights, most of them not bloody, but where there is a need, ClearPlay steps in. With filters, this film would be appropriate for older teens and up.

Should I Invite Hanna Over?…

By the numbers, Hanna is a good movie. There are good actors, sharp and stylistic cinematography, those kinetic hand to hand battles everyone loves, and a simple Bourne–ish plot about a trained assassin trying to discover who she really is. Unfortunately, it is also a cold and detached film where none of the main characters seem like real humans and what we should care about and why isn’t clear. Those who value style more than emotional involvement will like this film best.
