This is an enjoyable action film with plenty of cool action sequences, shoot-outs and chases. It's based on the series of popular video games and stays quite true to parts of the games. The way the missions are relayed, location, suit, outfit changes and even some of the tactics used in the game are shown in the film. So this should keep the games fans happy. For everyone else this is just a cool stylized action film, which reminded me of the Transporter films quite a bit.
FRE - Successful marriage of the aesthetic of video and the high-tech atmosphere of the thrillers in the genre of Jason Bourne, "Hitman" must savor for what it is: an effective entertainment to take at first degree. ENG - Le mariage réussi de l'esthétique de la vidéo et de l'atmosphère high-tech des thrillers dans le genre de Jason Bourne, "Hitman" doit savourer ce qu'il est: un divertissement efficace à prendre au premier degré.
Love this movie. I'm a huge Timothy Olyphant fan so maybe I'm a bit biased I don't know. I'm glad that it had its own story line and didn't try to be as true to the game as possible. I usually don't like game to movie movies because they just try to be the video game.
Lots Of Guns Pointed At Right-Angles & Longing Looks Of Pain-In-Excursion. The Quote Of The Whole Thing Being "I'm Going To Finish What I Was Paid To Do & Find Out Who (Double-Crossed) Set Me Up"; ...At Which Point We Follow It Thru A (First-Person POV) Shooting Rampage To It's Grisly End. Not That Entertaining...Unless You're A Fan Of The Game & Are Desperately In Need Of More (Unnessary) Backstory. It Did Appear To Completely Carbon-Copy Other Genres (Bourne/Bond) In Parts, Which Is Fine, But Still Build Your Own Style Possibly At Some Point?
