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.

If everything wasn't so deadly serious, I'd laugh, instead, I shook my head in complete disbelief.

A Bourne knock-off, and not a very good one at that.

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

Hitman feels like twenty short films played back to back, only a few of the mini-movies went missing, and the projectionist is hoping you won't notice.

The formula is not that far removed from James Bond except there's a hole at its center. Agent 47, played by a virtually expressionless Timothy Olyphant, is a soulless, emotionally dead protagonist.

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.

Awkwardly paced and muddled.

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.

Plays like a music video without the music, a spectacle of shiny weapons, spurting blood, and Jesus Christ poses that would have benefited from more overlaid songs and less blabber.

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

I haven't played the video game but I'm guessing the movie has chosen, for some reason, to re-create the story scenes that play between levels. The ones that players skip.

Hitman overstays its welcome from the moment the ammunition starts flying, and never finds a satisfying way of winning us back.

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

Based on the video game franchise of the same title, Hitman exploits every action-flick cliché imaginable and still manages to be dull.

An overcooked time killer that finds bad acting, bad direction, bad cinematography, and bad screenwriting in a furious race to dominate the running time. I'd call it a four-way tie.

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

Hitman is by no means great filmmaking but as video game adaptations go, it proves mindlessly entertaining and at least it's not irritatingly stupid.

If someone ran this guy through a scanner, the readout would say: "Mark down and stock in straight-to-video aisle."
