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

French director Xavier Gens keeps the action riveting and spectacular.

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.

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.

Kaplan vs. Kaplan

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

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.

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

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

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.

Shadows on the Wall

A bit po-faced and unremarkable; more outrageousness and humour would have helped.

Hitman stands right on the threshold between video games and art. On the wrong side of the threshold, but still, give it credit.

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

Rooted firmly on the positive side of good and dumb ... Whether you go for it or not may ultimately depend on your feelings about a movie that helpfully explains its locations with onscreen captions like "London: England" and "Moscow: Russia."

There's enough intelligence behind it that you don't feel you're just waiting to hit the reset button.

It delivers top-notch action, dazzling gunplay and lots of fireworks. What more could we ask for?

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.

Cinema em Cena

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.

| Original Score: 1/5

Screendaily

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.
