Did You Know?


Xavier Gens had shot a completely different train station platform sequence. It takes place outside the train station, rather than underground, and involves 47 questioning one assassin, rather than engaging 4 in a sword fight. See more »


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 »


Nika Boronina: The woman, two tables behind you - what's she wearing?
Agent 47: The one with the red hair and the silk dress - facing you?
Nika Boronina: Yeah.
Agent 47: That's not a woman.
[we see the "woman" behind him is obviously a transvestite. Nika smiles]

21 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

As we are all well aware of most film adaptations of video games are usually very poor. This is not the case with Hit-man. Hit-man has done something that no other video game film has been able to pull off before. It is entertaining to the general audience who has not plaid the video game, by use of witty remarks, dark humor, and excellent action scenes. On the other hand fans of the video game series will be pleasantly surprised that Hollywood has not butchered the concept of the video games. There has been much debate over the actor who played 47; all actors did an excellent job. I was very pleased.

Bottom line: If you enjoy the video games – see it. If you don't know anything about the video games but want to see a movie similar to Bourn Identity then see it.
