The Bald, The Sexy And The Barcodes....
When one goes to see a video-game inspired movie; one cannot expect too much. This latest outing "Hitman" (2007) directed by Xavier Gens (Frontiers) may leave a lot to be desired when it comes to an original plot but it does offer some decent action entertainment. I am at a slight disadvantage, as I have never played the video game before; all I can do is comment on how well "Hitman" is made, its production and entertainment values. I managed to get a free ticket out of …

Pros: Read review     Cons: Read review     The Bottom Line: Hitman is just about what you'd expect when a video game makes the leap to the big screen; the translation is all muddled and such.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot.

HITMAN was better than I expected. It's still not a good movie, but it wasn't quite the dreck-fest I feared.

I didn't expect to be impressed with this movie because in my mind it was simply another flick made from a video game but man, I was blown away! In fact it was so enjoyable that ten minutes after finishing it I wanted to see it again, and that rarely happens. Never mind the few geographical errors, this movie is all action and there is no waste of precious minutes on mindless love scenes - the one actually has one cut short by the main hero and it was humorous, how he was all business, him being …

Yet another game to movie adaptation, but this one has a major difference. It's actually pretty damn cool.    Timothy Olyphant fits perfectly into the role of Agent 47, an orphan who is taken in and trained by an agency that trains children to be the most stealthy and deadly hitmen in the world. Agent 47 is the best of the best of all the Hitmen raised and trained by "The Organization." He is called in to perform on a hit on the Russian President Mikhail Belicoff, however the …
