It’s amazing to say there was not much to like about this brisk pace action film that just jams the story and forced action sequences down your throat. The only enjoyable part in this 1:32 long movie is how unrealistic the gun and fists fights actually are. If you like moves that suspend the laws of physics, then this movie is for you.
What didn’t I like?
Thankfully I was sitting in the screening with only a handful of co-workers because at one point I yelled “You’ve GOT to be kidding me!!” A lot of this movie makes no sense what so ever, but it moves along so fast that you don’t have much time to dwell on its stupidity. When it was over I looked at everyone around me and said “was that it?” Yes it’s just quick.
Was Hitman: Agent 47 a good story?
I heard this movie was based on a video game and I sure hope the game is better than this movie. There are three parts of this movie, with a few action scenes thrown in to keep you entertained.
Rupert Friend and Hannah Ware both equally do a fantastic job selling their super human abilities and don’t hold anything back in the stunts department. I applaud their efforts to use heightened senses to entertain movie goers because their story is quite pointless and unrealistic.
Would I recommend it?
I’m just gonna flat-out say no here. Hitman: Agent 47 will not sell out theatres and may not even make its movie production budget back. This is the kind of movie you find on Netflix and watch only when you’ve seen everything else.
