It'll never win an Academy Award but it sure is entertaining
3 February 2000 | by krb206See all my reviews

Although more intelligent than the typical "blow it up and grunt a cocky one-liner before kissing the girl" action flick, Hitman's Run will never win any awards for drama. But hey, let's face it, if you like drama, you are probably not shopping for a movie with a picture on the jacket of a large gun aimed at your face. I really enjoyed this movie and agree with the other comment that the writing was quite good although I felt the direction was a little heavy handed at times. The dialogue was biting and witty, overall plot development was solid without getting in the way of the action, and the characters were as believable as you are going to find in this genre. I would highly recommend this film.
