In the south of France, former special-ops mercenary Frank Martin enters into a game of chess with a femme-fatale and her three sidekicks who are looking for revenge against a sinister Russian kingpin.
Coming together to solve a series of murders in New York City are a police detective whose family was slain as part of a conspiracy and an assassin out to avenge her sister's death. The duo will be hunted by the police, the mob, and a ruthless corporation.

HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research and forty-six earlier Agent clones -- endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47's past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.Written by

The are two main mistakes regarding the car chase scene. First, the cars, the Audi and the Mercedes Benz G-Class, have the steering wheel on the left side.This scene is set in Singapore, and although you're allowed to drive a left hand drive car there, the more common use would be to use right hand drive cars. Second, the license plate of Agent 47's Car, the Audi, is totally wrong. The license plate of the car is SGE-1815 G. The second and third letters (GE) are assigned to Light Goods Vehicles, not private vehicles. The right combination for a private vehicle would be S (B to Z) (B to Z) followed by 4 digits and one letter for example: SDN5145G. See more »
The history of man is defined by war. And war by the men who fight it. What if we could create a better man? Someone did.
The Agent program was initiated in August of 1967 by a man named Peter Aaron Litvenko. It's purpose was to create the perfect killing machine. Human beings without emotion, or fear, or remorse.

SPOILER: In a mid-credits scene, the camera zooms over Smith's body, now with white hair, to reveal he's still alive. This is the origin of The Albino villain of the franchise. See more »
One thing that bugs me more than any other about this film is the choice of the lead actor. He looks more like poor man's Orlando Bloom, and less like Agent 47 from the video game. IMHO he doesn't look convincing enough to play this role. He looks too skinny to be an engineered human being, bred for one purpose, to be a killing machine (just shaving some actors head doesn't make him an Agent 47). Wouldn't all those years of physical training be visible on his physique? Maybe I'm wrong, and he was bred for stamina rather than strength. The action scenes are very well done with some genuine WOW moments, but the story feels too generic, and plagued with the same problems like the first attempt on turning this video game into a movie (they just had to have a woman as his sidekick again!!!). If you expect a good action flick, you will be satisfied, but if you are a video game fan, this just won't do it for you, as it didn't do it for me.
