Hitman: Agent 47

An assassin teams up with a woman to help her find her father and uncover the mysteries of her ancestry.


Hitman: Agent 47 is directed by Aleksander Bach and stars Rupert Friend, Hannah Ware and Zachary Quinto. This film is based on the successful Hitman video game series. Writers and producers are trying to reboot a film which basically failed at starting a franchise the first time. This former film was yet not good at all, the critics and people weren't very of it. I'm confused because there are so many other great stories that could be turned into movies beginning with Metroid or even Zelda for God sakes! Eventually Rupert Friend is good at portraying the Hitman but his character is so boring, it's frustrating. Plus, Zachary Quinto really disappointed me as well. This film isn't that great and it eventually sucks. It's written by Skip Woods, the man who wrote X-Men Origins: Wolverine, A Good Day to Die Hard or Sabotage. Do I need to say more? The exposition is about 20minutes long, explaining the world of the movie to the audience, trying to overload us with information and yet you are supposed to care about these characters. Epic fail because you genuinely don't. Moreover, the film "profits" from modern day rapidly edited and quick-cut scenes but the thing is, we need to see things happened in an action movie. No one wants to wonder what their looking at. No one wants to see a blur of an action scene done with horrible choreography and fake stunt work. Each time this assassin pulls his guns out or shoot at things, it's in slo-motion. In fact, for every gun shoot scene, you have three to four dumb scenes. Finally you begin to deconstruct the movie and when you do that, you're not enjoying it.


Overall I enjoyed mostly the Hitman himself, Zachary Quinto would have made a good villain if he weren't to deal with this script. Hitman: Agent 47 is a big mess.
