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.

Awkwardly paced and muddled.

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.

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

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.

A thoroughly entertaining experience.

French director Xavier Gens keeps the action riveting and spectacular.

An army of skinhead assassins in matching suits seems a bit conspicuous for an agency supposedly shrouded in secrecy.

Only the deadpan delivery of Timothy Olyphant as Agent 47 enlivens the wooden dialogue of this collection of clichés masquerading as a silver-screen adaptation.

A slick take on sniping, strangling, homicidal body doubles, and a seductive Moscow sex slave in distress, the property of a local baddie, whom the hero invites to tag along from inside his car trunk, don't ask.

...a better film than I was expecting, even if it doesn't do much beyond the ordinary.

47 doesn't even want the girl. What kind of action movie is this? A skippable one, ultimately.

Hitman is the oddest of action movies %u2014 a film all but devoid of action. Not satisfied with simply being another mindless video game adaptation, the film also forgets to be entertaining.

There's a certain primitive simplicity to it, the editing is awkward in spots, and it derives from a game, but I flat-out enjoyed it.

Director Xavier Gens admirably tries his best with the material but he is failed by a sub-par script by Skip Woods.

Hitman is inspired by a video game. That of course carries all sorts of baggage.

A mechanical series of violent set-pieces decorated with underdressed hotties. It's handsome but astonishingly dull and weirdly sexless, despite the aforementioned underdressed girls and frequent discussion of Nika's undergarments or lack thereof.

Can a video game turn a movie into a hit, man? Maybe. But that doesn't mean that "Hitman" is far removed from its video game origins.
