Based on the popular video game franchise Hitman is a poor excuse for an action movie.
Timothy Olyphant is Agent 47 a shaven head killer who finds himself ensnared in a political conspiracy while accompanied by Olga Kurylenko as a sexy prostitute.
The characters show very little depth and the story lacks any real development. The action sequences are not too bad but director Xavier Gens fails to keep the tempo high enough to keep the audience involved.
Like all video game adaptation Hitman was clearly an attempt to cash in on the popularity of the game. Just a shame they couldn't have spent a little more time making a decent movie.
