The Poor Man's 'Bourne Identity'
14 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most of what you read here in the user-comments is true: this is basically a check-your- brains-at-the-door flick, filled with mindless violence. However, it isn't all stupid. You do have use some brainpower to try follow this little "conspiracy" twist which is kind of a ripoff of the "Bourne Identity" stories where a hired hit-man is crossed up and both sides are looking for him.

He also winds up, as "Jason Bourne" did, with an exotic-looking female getting involved with him and his deadly cat-and-mouse affair with government officials. Unlike the Bourne stories, this female was already involved with the situation. The character in here, too, is very sleazy with a ton of eye makeup that makes her even more cheap-looking.

So, instead of Matt Damon and Franka Potente, we have Timothy Olyphant and Olga Kurylenko, neither of which has ever been in a hit movie. We also get a look at Russia and a little bit of Turkey as the supposed "good guy" (Agent 47) gets set up after he had completed his mission, which was to kill the Russian Premier. (The fact that the hero is a cold-blooded killer is a sad comment in itself.)

The action scenes, I assume, are supposed to be the attraction to the viewers. It certainly isn't the dialog, which is so stupid it gets insulting after awhile. The first part of the film isn't bad but the second half is really rife with stupid lines, many said by the girl. It got so bad that with a half hour left in the film, I didn't care if saw the ending or not. By then, I had lost interest in any of the characters.

By the way, I am reviewing this strictly as a movie. I know it's based on a video game, but not familiar with video games anymore. I only know this story here from what I see on film. It looked like a pleasant surprise after the first 15 minutes but goes downhill more and more as it goes on, making me totally agree with you other reviewers who commented on the low mentality of this script.
