A gun-for-hire known only as Agent 47 hired by a group known only as 'The Organization' is ensnared in a political conspiracy, which finds him pursued by both Interpol and the Russian military as he treks across Russia and Eastern Europe.
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.
Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukrainian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.
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 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. The resulting subjects were called, Agents. The Program was a success. But the price of creating men without humanity, was Litvenko's conscience.

Very bland. Could have been better if the trailer did not ruin it for me.
Like drinking Kool Aid without sugar.
The only thing I knew about Hit-man: Agent 47 is that it's based on the video game which I have played a few times, is the squeal to a movie so bad, I've only seen once and what the trailer showed me which was everything.
If you see the trailer than you know everything about the movie. The entire plot and all the twist and turns are actually in the trailer which makes no sense.
That should not bother me that much after all it's an action movie. You can forgive the trailer telling the whole story of the movie if the action was tight.
It was not. It was like Agent 47 was trying to shoot me from a foot away while I was standing still, and missed every time. Well, to be fair, not every time. Agent 47 had one or two "oh snap" moments, but considering the movie was littered with what was suppose to be super cool stylish action sequences, one or two is not gonna cut it.
Zachary Quito was pretty cool in this movie. Makes me feel bad that this is all he could get after Star Trek. Although I have to say I've seen him do better battle scenes as Mr. Spock than I've seen with this movie.
So, Agent 47 could have been a more Sci-fi driven, superhero influenced Taken, but it's not worthy to lick Liam Neeson boots
Catch it on Netflix if there is nothing else to watch.
