Most of the scenes where the action is in Russia is in fact shot in Sofia, Bulgaria. For example the scene where Belokov is shot by agent 47 is shot in front of Bulgarian national theatre Ivan Vazov. The scenes shot into the train station are shot in the central train station of Sofia, Bulgaria. The scenes with the church at the end are shot at the biggest church of Sofia named Alexander Nevski.

Better than expected
21 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This by far is the best video game adaptation movie I have ever seen. It stayed mostly true to the games but instead the agents were orphans instead of clones. There were many great action scenes and nods to the games, such as Agent 47 stealing various outfits, his weapons and his odd ways of killing his targets. the movie reminded me of an all new game in itself.

Not to mention Nika (Olga Kurylenko) was amazingly HOT in this movie and has various topless scenes which made me happy :) and she wasn't a bad actress either. I think Timothy Olyphant was THE perfect Agent 47 and captured the character perfectly I would definitely see this movie multiple times!!!!! I highly recommend this movie to fans of the video games or if you love action movies altogether!!!!!
