Trivia

In the soundtrack, tracks #1 and #18 are listed as "Ava Maria," when they're really "Ave Maria." It is Latin for "Hail Mary." One of the meanings of the name is "wished-for child." Track #1 is heard in the beginning of the film when it shows children learning how to be "wished for" hitmen. See more »

Never would have guessed that Timothy Olyphants acting would be only slightly better than the avitar from the game. Does his acting power come from his hair? There are cool fights and car chases and everything you need for a hit action flick, except a decent plot. It's fun but if I wanted fun I would have just played the game.... so I did.
