We watched so many spy and assassin movies and Hit-man Agent 47 is one of our top hit movies. The opening scene is more amazing than Spectre and more gripping. Although there were a few moments where you wish there was more substance or emotions, the continuity and the style seems to make it worthwhile ignoring. The choice of scenery is impressive and so are the action scenes. The Singapore scenes are truly unique as it have not been seen before by many living in the USA or Europe. Car chases are incredible. Hannah Ware and Rupert Friend seems to be a good pair. But I can't say the same about Zach Quinto. Overall, it does reminds me of Blade Runner with a more gripping tension. The music is excellent too with some never heard beats before. For this movie budget, Hit-man Agent 47 is amazingly up there with Spectre whose budget is nearly 4 times more!
