A thoroughly entertaining experience.

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.

There's a cool opening credits sequence, but beyond that 'Hitman' doesn't make much sense, is encumbered by clunky dialogue, some amateurish performances and clichéd set-pieces we've seen umpteen times before.

The only thing Hitman succeeds in doing is confirming what common sense could tell you without spending millions of dollars on a special-effects-filled movie: A series of novels is much richer source material than a series of video games.

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

Massive illogic abounds throughout the video-game-based thriller Hitman, starting with the opening, which posits a mysterious organization 'so secret no one knows it exists,' even though it somehow maintains 'ties to every government.'

In the finest tradition of adolescent identification figures, he's not only ruthless, dispatching numerous baddies with hair-trigger shots to the head, but profoundly desexualized.
November 21, 2007
Hitman stands right on the threshold between video games and art. On the wrong side of the threshold, but still, give it credit.

Hitman is one of the best movies ever made from a video game, which doesn't provide you with very much information. That's like declaring the best meal you've eaten at a strip club, or the best love ballad by Kenny Loggins.

The plot of Hitman is difficult to follow and in any case secondary to the sheer spectacle of murder and mayhem.

Fans of good movies will find it laughably silly and shot through with bad dialogue that someone should pay the price for.

A lousy picture.

As cold as it is dumb.

Ultra-violent, nonsensical and peppered with gratuitous nudity.

While Hitman is decidedly more watchable than Resident Evil and most previous video-game movies, it shares its forerunners' lack of interest in storytelling or logic.

Efficiently derivative, mildly stylish, sporadically sexy and eminently forgettable.

There have been plenty of movies adapted from video games before, but Hitman may be the first one that actually feels like a computer wrote and directed it.

Here's all you really need to know before the opening credits roll in Hitman: There's going to be a lot of bloodshed.

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.
November 21, 2007
Based on the video game franchise of the same title, Hitman exploits every action-flick cliché imaginable and still manages to be dull.

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

November 20, 2007
A Eurotrashy vidgame knockoff that misses its target by a mile. Numbingly unthrilling as it lurches from one violent encounter to another, the pic's dark roots in an electronic, non-dramatic medium are plain to see.
November 20, 2007
All a goof. Revealing the pragmatic side of the CG-assisted filmmaker, [director] Gens makes a movie that seems entirely computer generated.
