It's unlikely this latest instalment was made to fulfil any burning need on the part of the audience, more probably it's a result of the lack of imagination in some sectors of the movie industry.

Resembles a uniquely boring, feature-length Audi commercial, incidentally intent on pinching ideas from the first two Terminators.

Agent 47 doesn't feel like a character who's got what it takes to be a franchise hero - he, and the film, are lacking in personality.
August 21, 2015
Only a bare minimum of non-action scenes were included in the final cut. There's enough here to piece together a rudimentary storyline but the details are often either confusing or nonsensical.
August 21, 2015
The friction between stateliness and lunacy is more intriguing than, say, the line-toeing mediocrity of a second-rate Marvel movie.
August 21, 2015
As such films go, it's efficiently done juvenilia.
August 20, 2015
Ultimately "Hitman: Agent 47," like the profession it worships, feels purely contractual.
August 20, 2015
About as violent and soulless as its title suggests.
August 20, 2015
The various shootouts and chases that take place along the way are busy, noisy, and ultimately just as flat as Friend makes his tone.
August 20, 2015
Who's human and who's not consumes much of the running time of rote actioner Hitman: Agent 47, which vainly attempts to revive a forgotten video-game spinoff starring Timothy Olyphant.
August 20, 2015
Dumb as dirt and just as generic, "Hitman: Agent 47" trades brains for bullets and characters for windup toys.
August 20, 2015
If you strip away all the gunplay, Hitman: Agent 47 would be about 10 minutes long.
August 20, 2015
Bach handles the project with a competent precision. The film doesn't rise above the genre and the plot is muddled, but he pulls off the basic elements with a distinctly chilly European style.
August 20, 2015
What it lacks in brains, Hitman: Agent 47 attempts to make up for with action, even if not much of it is particularly memorable.
August 20, 2015
"Hitman: Agent 47" is a by-the-numbers schlock action sequel that writes its own epitaph when a character mutters the dusty insult, "You're dead, too. You just don't know it yet."
August 20, 2015
We don't attend something like Hitman: Agent 47 looking for gritty realism, but what we DO expect is an entertaining and reasonably clever thrill ride. No such luck.

[A] soulless actioner.
August 20, 2015
On the surface - and that's all there is - it seems as pointless and gassy as a "Matrix" sequel.
August 20, 2015
The film was shot on location in Berlin and Singapore, and Friend is out-acted by the gorgeous scenery.

Is 47 the good guy? That's unclear. This leaves little reasons to root for him - other than his super-chill demeanor, his ability to use two guns at once and his impeccably defined cheekbones.
