...even the most forgiving action fan will walk away disappointed by this mess.

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

Kaplan vs. Kaplan

For what it is --- a fast-paced, violent thriller, based on a video game, of all things --- it's actually entertaining.

For some reason unknown to man or film criticism, Jeanne found this highly entertaining.

...the very premise -- "elusive" killers walking around with shaved heads and barcode tattoos -- is idiotic on its face.

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.

Screen International

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.

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

Fans of the video game on which this film is based may get a kick out of the cinematic treatment, but even these low level kicks will be tempered by the film's failure to articulate its main plot points or to create characters we care about.

Hitman's performances outclass the film's video-game origins. These are credible characters, not video drones.

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

It's based on a computer game, Hitman (see what they did with that title?), though even when it reaches maximum velocity, it's still panting behind The Bourne Ultimatum for style and excitement.

Rubbish, of course, but some teenage boys love this stuff. Don't rule out sequels.

This film is like watching the actual game played by someone with slow reactions. That's not much of a spectator sport.

Obviously made to appeal to the computer game's fans, it still begs the question: How does a film with this level of violence get a certificate of 15?

Xavier Gens should have stuck to making music videos rather than inflict his goldfish-like attention-span on cinema.

Daily Mirror [UK]

It might just be one of the best videogame adaptations ever made, which isn't saying much. It could also be the film of the week which, come to think of it, isn't saying much either.

Yet another depressing confirmation of the inability of filmmakers to turn decent videogames into decent films.

The movie isn't bad; it's just all too familiar.
