Hitman (2007)



Critic Consensus: Hitman features the unfortunate combination of excessive violence, incoherent plot, and inane dialogue.

Movie Info

Based on the top-selling, award-winning videogame franchise, the "Hitman" is a genetically-engineered, elite assassin known only as Agent 47. His hallmarks are a lethal grace, unwavering precision, and resolute pride in his work. But even 47 couldn't anticipate a "random equation" in his life of exactitude: the unexpected stirrings of his conscience and the unfamiliar emotions aroused in him by a mysterious Russian woman. Agent 47 is a mysterious and complex man of profound contradictions: He was bred from the world's deadliest criminals, but raised by an exiled brotherhood of the Church. His very existence seems to be a sin, but he wages a quiet war to rid the world of evil. He's brilliant, charismatic and charming--yet reveals little about himself, has no name and is known only by the last two digits of a barcode tattooed on the back of his head.

A thoroughly entertaining experience.

July 16, 2008 | Full Review…

The title is probably misspelt -- there should be an S in front.

December 7, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

As far as it being a video game, I was in the theater and I was trying to work the remote control to close the curtains and turn the sound down.

December 3, 2007

Though stylish shot and occasionally exciting in its frenetically-edited action sequences, this adaptation of the popular video game can only go so far with its mindless violence until cardboard characters and a dull plot snuff out the momentum.

December 1, 2007

One of those rare, so-bad-it's-good shoot-'em-ups.

The film's target audience - dummies everywhere - will be blown away.

Audience Reviews for Hitman

This is an enjoyable action film with plenty of cool action sequences, shoot-outs and chases. It's based on the series of popular video games and stays quite true to parts of the games. The way the missions are relayed, location, suit, outfit changes and even some of the tactics used in the game are shown in the film. So this should keep the games fans happy. For everyone else this is just a cool stylized action film, which reminded me of the Transporter films quite a bit.

Hey, it's another girl with a dragon tattoo! What are the chances? Don't you think the bald heads with the barcodes shown off to the world are a bit obvious. All you need is one person to figure it out and this whole gang would be wiped out pronto.

Pretty ridiculous -- although I did like the bit about the kids actually playing the video game in the hotel room. Some nice action, some poor story. Walter, if you're in the mood for a little intense killing, I'd check this one out.
