Should I stream Hanna on Amazon Prime?

Hanna is the name of an Amazon Original series that I have been wanting to watch for quite some months. This weekend, I finally got the chance to get started, and I watched 4 out of 8 episodes in season 1. And yes, based on that I would like to answer in the best possible way whether or not it is worth to watch Hanna on Amazon Prime or not.

I started watching Hanna on Amazon Prime without any special knowledge about the character or the plot. In fact, I didn’t even know that there was a movie named Hanna from 2011 telling almost the same story starring Cate Blanchett in the role as Marissa Wiegler. It was very interesting to watch the trailer of the Hanna movie from 2011 after watching four episodes of Hanne, because there are so many scenes and things that simply seem to have been copied. Now, that is probably what the plot is all about, but considering how Hanna has been renewed for a second season, the series will take you much further than the movie did.

Take a look at the trailer of the Hanna movie above to see the introduction to the movie. And when that is done, take a look at the trailer of the Amazon original series.

And here you can see the trailer of the TV series. In the TV series, there is much more time for showing us Hanna and her personality, and even though the trailers might be very different, the actual content and plot of the TV series and the movie is very similar.

So, is Hanna worth streaming on Amazon Prime?

I have watched the first four episodes and I am planning to watch the upcoming four episodes. But, there are a few questions marks I have that I keep on asking myself. When I watch action-based TV series, I normally have a very hard time stopping. I just want to get to the end, and I am willing to do almost anything just to be able to see what will happen. That is why I was able to stream a season of 24 in three days (back in the days when I had a lot of spare-time). But, after watching four episodes of Hanna, I do not sit with the same feeling. It is interesting and I enjoy watching it, but it doesn’t catch a hold of me and makes me sucked into the story.

The acting of the characters are fine, but none of the characters make me feel as if they are making it worth watching. It isn’t always the lack of big stars that cause this problem. For example, Big Little Lies season 2 on HBO is packed with stars, but the one that makes the second season worth watching is Meryl Streep all by herself. She is the one carrying the season on her shoulders, and even though Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and the others are fantastic actors, they are nothing compared to Meryl Streep in the second season of Big Little Lies.

But, in Hanna, there are no characters that hits me and makes me love the series. So, the story itself is what makes me interested and curious about what is going to happen, but it hasn’t made me addicted.

I feel like Sheldon currently…

What is special about Sheldon in Big Bang Theory? He has to finish whatever he starts. And yes, that is how I feel with Hanna. I want to know what will happen and how it is going to end. Not because it is so interesting, but simply because I want to know how a story ends, even if it is boring.

I wouldn’t give Hanna a poor score, but I guess I would say something like a 6/10 if I had to. There are other action series on Amazon Prime that I enjoyed more than Hanna, for example, Jack Ryan. That is also a basic story, but somehow, that made me much more excited and gave a more addictive feeling compared to Hanna.

How to watch Hanna on Amazon Prime?

If you have an Amazon Prime subscription, you can easily go ahead and watch Hanna straight away. If you are on a summer holiday, you will most likely be able to stream Hanna even so. How come? Much of the content on Amazon Prime is blocked by geo-regulations, meaning that you cannot stream Amazon Prime content abroad. But, most of the Amazon Original content can be streamed also outside the United States, simply because Amazon is the copyright holder of the series all across the world, and thus, you can stream it also when you go abroad.

If you want to know more about streaming Amazon Prime abroad and how it works, make sure to read more at http://amazonprime.fromabroad.org/

For those who do not have an Amazon Prime subscription at all, you could visit www.primevideo.com and sign up for the streaming service of Amazon Prime, available in those nations without an actual Amazon store. There you can stream all the Amazon Original content, and some other series and movies as well.

What are your thoughts about Hanna?

I have tried to share my thoughts about Hanna in this short article. Have you seen Hanna yourself? How did you like it? Have you seen the full season? Maybe my thoughts will change as I approach the eight and final episode of Hanna season 1? I don’t know yet, but if I change my mind or want to share even more thoughts based on the coming episodes, I will update the article or write a comment beneath.

But, now it is time for you to share your thoughts about Hanna. Write a comment beneath and let me know whatever might be on your heart!

What’s coming to Amazon Prime March 2019?

March is approaching, and there will be some movies and TV shows worth checking out on Amazon Prime in the upcoming month as well. Here you can check the full list of content coming to Amazon Prime in March, and also check some of the biggest highlights.

As always, Amazon Prime isn’t the number one streaming service on the market if your goal is to get your hands on the hottest movies from Hollywood. But, still, in March 2019, there are a couple of movies and TV shows you can look forward to. For example, fans of Keira Knightley, will for sure enjoy the movie named Colette which will come to Amazon Prime in March 2019.

In the movie, she plays a character who writes books using some other persons name. But, who has the real power over the book and the characters? This is a great movie.

But, then you have the original Amazon content, and action loves will have something to digest on March 1st already with the arrival of The Widow. In this original series, we meet a lady who has lost her husband in a plane crash… but is he really dead? She goes out to discover more, but all she gets is even more mysteries. This might turn into a real treat!

The second Amazon Original series worth watching in March 2019 is Hanna. This is the story of a girl who has been trained by her dead to become a super agent. But, she also knows that people doesn’t expect her to be like that at all, and thus she can move around without being discovered and capable of doing extraordinary things.

If you want a movie with some Christian philosophy and message, I Can Only Imagine tells the story about one of the most popular Christian songs of the recent decade. It is strange how some of our biggest adversaries and those causing us the most harm, can actually be the ones who leads us into a breakthrought, or into changing in some way or another!

The last movie I want to mention is the Polish movie Cold War. This has won a lot of prices, and it is one of the biggest masterpieces of 2018. Take a look at the video above to see some short clips from it. It might seem strange, but this is a piece you will want to watch if you like great movies.
