The ultimate crime epic. The end of this film is absolutely astounding; the booming, sweeping synth orchestra combined with the final shot make for a haunting last impression. Amazing film; probably the only film I've ever seen that realistically portrays how fucking LOUD guns actually are. It's a slow burn and has a few unnecessary elements/scenes (mostly concerning Hanna's wife/Natalie Portman's character) but god damn if this isn't the best crime film of the past 20 years. Could be seen as a spiritual predecessor to Nicolas Winding Refn's DRIVE. Drenched in the neon filth of LA, you have to stick to your principles.
