Trivia

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 three in a sword fight. See more »

Goofs

While Agent 47 is fighting under the train, during one of his punches you can clearly see it's not Agent 47, but rather the Assassin who was shot earlier. See more »

Quite a good movie. I enjoyed it.
7 January 2012 | by chumdegSee all my reviews

My first big question is: - Was this movie originally produced in French? It seemed to me that the Lip-sync was totally English, although I was told that it was produced in French. Technology has improved so much, so please let me know. The action scenes were fantastic. Very interesting storyline, but it was funny how they all dropped their guns and fought with their hands. I liked Olyphant for Agent 47, but I think he could have showed more action. He was a bit laughable at times. However, it was fun looking at the film. I did not expect too much when I started looking at the movie, but I must say that the action was placed at the right time, so it kept me interested. I also liked very much the girl, Nika, if I did, then I am sure she was a favourite.
