Trivia

Most of the scenes where the action is in Russia is in fact shot in Sofia, Bulgaria. For example the scene where Belokov is shot by agent 47 is shot in front of Bulgarian national theatre Ivan Vazov. The scenes shot into the train station are shot in the central train station of Sofia, Bulgaria. The scenes with the church at the end are shot at the biggest church of Sofia named Alexander Nevski.

Goofs

After Agent 47 finishes talking to Nika in the car, the scene cuts to the car from the rear driving away. The Audi that is driving away is an RS4 Cabriolet. It is the same car Agent 47 uses while going to the Palace of Udre but not the car which he stole from Belicoff's man. That was an Audi S5. 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.
