Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett are a classy pair of ac­tors who have been known to star in the odd block­buster, but not long into this pro­duc­tion do you re­alise it is not your stan­dard thriller. The guid­ing hand of di­rec­tor Joe Wright ( Atone­ment, Pride and Prej­u­dice), how­ever, de­liv­ers some in­ter­est­ing bal­ance be­tween ac­tion and poetry. It is the story of a young girl ( Saoirse Ronan) raised in the Fin­nish woods by her fa­ther ( Bana) to be­come a skilled as­sas­sin. Blanchett ( above) plays the CIA of­fi­cer tasked with track­ing her down. A thrilling ac­tion flick.
