Hitman (2007) - Rotten Tomatoes

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.more

A thoroughly entertaining experience.

Top Critic

Hitman the film is a conventional action thriller that seeks to do nothing more than entertain with an assortment of carnage and sex, at which it is moderately successful.

Full Review… | March 22, 2011

Awkwardly paced and muddled.

Boston Phoenix

Olyphant faz o possível com um personagem unidimensional por natureza, mas o roteiro absurdo e a direção frágil de Gens, que parece acreditar que cortes rápidos substituem arcos narrativos, conferem ao filme um ar de produção feita para DVD.

Cinema em Cena

You should see this movie for the action and gunfights... oh, and for Olga Kurylenko.

7M Pictures

Though stylishly shot and occasionally exciting, this adaptation of the popular video game can only go so far with its mindless violence and cardboard characters.

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.
