Dust bin dwellers: Bad D.V.D. rental night.
3 February 2005 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Hitmans Code (2003) is a terrible "movie". Like I have said in the past, I have nothing against low budget movies. Most of the movies that I like are of the low to no budget variety. But if you're going to make a movie at least have some decent writing and some actors who have the slightest bit of stage presence and charisma. There's nothing worse than a movie that tries to hard. Especially ones that try to hard but have nothing to even flaunt.

The movie is about a balding hit-man who tries to look cool. His new assignment is to follow some woman with beefy forearms but thin upper arms. As he follows her around town, he's learns a lot about his funny looking woman. She's not at all what she seems to be. What has this guy (and the audience) gotten in to?

Just a terrible movie. Nothing thrilling or exciting to mention. It sucked. I don't even want to know why they even made this movie. There's nothing worse than a bad neo-noir film. Especially one filled with lousy acting, boring set pieces and plain looking women. This movie is masquerading under a nonsensical title Hitmans Code. I never found out or understood what the "code" was about.

Avoid like the plague.
