Based on the popular Playstation 2 game, HITMAN chronicles the retribution-packed odyssey of Number 47 (Timothy Olyphant), a bald assassin raised from birth to be a killer and tattooed with a barcode on the back of his head. There's lots of BOURNE SUPREMACY-style flash-edits and superhuman stunt work as 47 seeks to find out why moderate Russian presidential nominee Belicoff (Ulrich Thomsen) was the client for his own assassination, a hit that 47 pulled off perfectly, except for one hitch: the target's still alive. For romantic interest we have Olga Kurylenko as a foxy Russian prostitute sold into slavery by the evil Belicoff. She and 47 wind up on the run together but they'll never be safe as long as Belicoff is still alive. Meanwhile, Interpol agent Mike Whittier (Dougray Scott) has been tracking 47 for years. He's on the scent and about to close in. Luc Besson was the producer on this, and fans of THE TRANSPORTER, LEON and LA FEMME NIKITA films will appreciate this film, as it has a similar narrative arc, vividly saturated colours, swooping camerawork, tightly choreographed fights, and lots of blood flying from the copious bullet wounds.

Gr, it was a PC game before playstation. Bloody consoles.

Cheaper than a rental at that price, never seen this so no excuses now! Thanks.

Love the games!

This got mixed reviews, I enjoyed it and just watched it again a few days ago. A sequel is due next year, it has been rumored hitman 5 (game) is a possible tie-in, I hope not.

I liked the film, didn't think Timothy Olyphant would make a good 47, but he nailed it I think. Great reference to the game in the film too.

This film was much better than I expected. Well worth watching even just for Olga Kurylenko....hot hot hot

Good film, bargain.

:thumbsup:

Guess we should all be happy this is one title Uwe Boll didn't get hold of.

Didn't like the look of Olyphant at the start, be he ended up playing the part quite well.

Never saw this as I am a big fan of the games and a big fan of Deadwood (which Olyphant stars in), so I didn't want to be disappointed.

Olyphant seemed to be too young for the part, hitmanforum.com/for…jpg would have been better, seeing as though IO Interactive based the image of Agent 47 off of him and he also voiced the character.

One day I will watch it but I have had my fingers burnt too many times by tat like Mario and Resident Evil to trust this.

Great film,and game!!!

Hitman is one of the better VG-Movies and Olyphant quite decent in it
