Did You Know?

Trivia

Xavier Gens was removed from his directing/editing position after Fox decided to go back and re-shoot/re-edit the movie in October 2007. Fox denied this, claiming he was still directing/editing, however it was later confirmed as true by Timothy Olyphant. See more »

Goofs

When 47 first interrogates Nika, it appears that the tattoo on her face switches sides during the scene. This is because the camera is viewing the characters directly in some shots and views them indirectly in other shots using the large mirror present in the room. See more »

Quotes

Agent 47: [after releasing an irate Nika from his trunk] Don't be dramatic.
Nika Boronina: Dramatic?
Agent 47: I got rid of the body.

Not perfect but good enough
4 December 2007 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I've played Hit-man and have really been excited to see the movie. At first I was wondering how will they ever pull off the Hit-man movie but after watching it, its one of the few games to movie adaptations that I really liked. Not a perfect adaptation, but the best so far compared to others out there. Though Jason Statham was my initial bet, Timothy Olyphant did a good job with portraying Agent 47.

Aspects of the game was incorporated in the movie and they didn't overkill with stupid ideas. Action was pretty good and I like the fight scenes. Agent 47 in the movie does live up to his cold killer reputation in spite of a girl being introduced. Its a good thing they keep it nice and cold.

The only thing I noticed is that Timothy looks too pretty cute to be Agent 47. Other than that, its good.
