Quotes

Mike Whittier: Are you going to kill me?
Agent 47: If I was going to kill you, I'd have done it when you walked to your car this morning and been gone by the time your body hit the sidewalk
Mike Whittier: Then why are you here?
Agent 47: To talk. But, Mike, if you make me kill you, you will not go alone. Sit. Are you a good man, Inspector?
Mike Whittier: I think.
Agent 47: And yet you've killed men.
Mike Whittier: Yes.
Agent 47: I'm gonna ask you a question. How you answer it will determine how this night ends. How does a good man decide when to kill?

Hit-man the Movie
24 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, I've heard mostly mixed comments about this movie. But, I'm glad that for the first time in a long time, an "action" movie has had an in-depth plot. Not to mention, they captured the personality of 47 near perfectly. When I went to see this, I didn't think I would like it because Timothy Olyphant played such a convincing geek in Die Hard 4, but he did an incredible job of changing roles. The basis behind the movie is that the hit-man is sent to assassinate someone, but it goes bad, which results in him picking up Olga Kurylenko. Now, they tried to add some jokes in, and he does do some things that are completely out of character (such as smiling), but for the most part, he plays the part very well. Now, the hit-man games aren't known for the best plot of all time, but, since the movie focused more on plot then on actual action, it feels a bit refreshing since the games are basically "Target, Money, Kill". I'd like to see the next Hit-man game focus more on the plot.

Anyway, it's got a great story, 47 is for the most part, played as he should be, and there is enough action to keep you from getting bored.

Ranking wise, it's definitely no "Die Hard 3" or "Big Fish", but it is probably one of the best video-game to movie transitions thats been done in a long time.
