This film is a reboot of the hitman franchise. It pushes for a lot of action and a softer kinder agent 47. One can see many influences in the way this movie is put together from the guiding ideas of the matrix to the fighting style of the resident evil to banter that at times seem like it stepped right out of the blacklist.
This movie is not high art. It is definitely not one of the best action movies of the summer but its the prettiest ugly girl in the room at the moment. Its the one you take home just because… This movie will fill that need for an action movie and I am sure there will be many more… Just don’t expect it to be any more than a standard b movie with lots of special effects. The only thing that I want more of in the sequels would be more and better gun fu. The deaths in this one were adequate. The evolution of the characters were well done. The story and cliff hanger fit well but its a b movie… A good b move but its still a b movie. Even so, I have no doubt it will become someones guilty pleasure… It certainly will be mine..
