HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research and forty-six earlier Agent clones -- endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47's past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.Written by

The idea of a young girl who has assassin-like abilities (like super reflexes and freeing herself from her ties) who is also wanted by an evil corporation is taken directly from the plot of Hitman: Absolution (2012). See more »
Agent 47's pistols are .45 caliber. When he goes to the American embassy and spreads his arms revealing his weapons to the guard at the metal detector, the the magazines in his pistols can be clearly seen to be stamped ".38 Super" while the magazines on his belt have ".45" stamped on them. A .45 caliber round and .38 Super round cannot be fired by the same pistol, so the two extra magazines on his belt are useless. See more »

I have not played the game. I still didn't like the movie.
It felt like the team that made the Resident Evil films- another failed attempt to turn a game into a movie - has worked on this as well. It is an Apple-style, gun kata, Matrix derived, James Bond cloning, CGI filled, Resident Evil sequel.
I wanted to watch it because I like Rupert Friend in Homeland. He did not disappoint, but neither did he blow my mind. It is clear that he needs better direction than the one time director Aleksander Bach could provide. Zachary Quinto does a decent job as well, considering the script. Hannah Ware is... cute and has a British accent. That's about it.
I could waste time telling you about the story, but it is rather silly and obvious. Even the twists, you see them coming from miles away. I think one thing only explains the film better than any review: Jürgen Prochnow gets less screen time than Angelababy in this movie. Yeah, I had to google her, too.
