Trivia

The scene where Agent 47 sits atop the roof, sniper in hand and red lettering behind him is taken directly from artwork from the game, as is the scene between 47 and Yuri in the bathtub, including the rubber duck. See more »

Whittier states that the passage on the cross from 47's luggage is from Psalms. It is actually a shortened version of Proverbs 3:5-6. See more »

Quotes

Agent 47: [Udre is telling 47 about the guns he has for sale] Whoa whoa whoa hold up. This is not a Kadr. It's a Chinese copy. In fact, I don't know if it's the drugs, or if you're usually this inept, but you've been wrong about most of these weapons. If the gun you're holding is as cheap as this one, even if you did manage to shoot her in the eye, and I'm not saying you could, you wouldn't kill her.
[Udre shoots at 47, missing]

Bad... Even for an action movie.
28 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

IMHO this movie is not even close to the idea presented in the games. Except the title and the fact that the main actor is bald, this movie has no similarities with the original concept. So, that mean that this is just a story about some assassin. Well, it is a very bad story. The main problem is of course script. Things happen in this movie without reason. The main characters move around a lot, but there is no solid explanation why. It's all based on the fact that everybody is after assassin and where he goes, everybody goes. There is no tension and the action is generally dull. The assassin ain't cool at all, he's just angry for some sort of a reason, which we of course don't know. Maybe, we even know, but we don't care.

To conclude, this movie has nothing to do with the games, and as the action movie alone, 99% of the people will forget it very very fast.
