Goofs

While Agent 47 is posed as arms dealer Price, Udre Belicoff showcases several weapons. When he picks up the assault rifle, he describes it as an M203 with under-barrel grenade launcher. This is actually an M16 rifle, with M203 grenade launcher attachment. He also suggests that the rifle shoots 7.62 mm ammunition, when in fact the M16 shoots 5.56 mm. This is shown to be deliberate when 47 calls Udre out, saying "you've been wrong about most of these." See more »

Not perfect but good enough
4 December 2007 | by rainwitchedSee all my reviews

I've played Hit-man and have really been excited to see the movie. At first I was wondering how will they ever pull off the Hit-man movie but after watching it, its one of the few games to movie adaptations that I really liked. Not a perfect adaptation, but the best so far compared to others out there. Though Jason Statham was my initial bet, Timothy Olyphant did a good job with portraying Agent 47.

Aspects of the game was incorporated in the movie and they didn't overkill with stupid ideas. Action was pretty good and I like the fight scenes. Agent 47 in the movie does live up to his cold killer reputation in spite of a girl being introduced. Its a good thing they keep it nice and cold.

The only thing I noticed is that Timothy looks too pretty cute to be Agent 47. Other than that, its good.
