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.

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

Agent 47's pistols are .45 caliber.

A action movie with lots of gun action that has nothing to do with the game series
Those who know the game series will miss the real Hit-man in this movie. Hit-man in the games is someone who assassinates, make kills look like accidents and who searches secret paths to get himself a benefit.
The movie however is just another action movie with a not so interesting story. The movie features lots of gun action, but nothing special we have not seen in other movies before.
There are a few fun scenes when shot enemies fall from catwalks but the most spectacular parts are already given away by the trailer.
The story is put into the background a lot and the actual enemy of Hit-man and Katia seems to be playing a guest role and is not a just worthy antagonist.
All in all this is a nice action movie that lacks story and tension.
