I recently saw the movie Hitman starring Timothy Olyphant. If you are a fan of the game or you enjoy action movies, you will enjoy this movie. You don’t need to be familiar with the game to have fun watching the movie.
If you are unfamiliar with the Hitman series, he is an engineered assassin, associated with the church. We start with our old friend Agent 47 performing of all things . . . a hit. Some problems are encountered, and then trouble ensues.
This movie is rated R for violence and nudity, so if you find yourself squeamish about either of these, you might not want to see it.
The action is of course over the top, but fun. After I watched the movie, I found myself wanting to buy the game. XBox online has a demo that can be downloaded that will give you an idea of how the game works. It is a stealth game, which means I am not the best at it, but that doesn’t stop me from having a good time.
If you are a fan of action movies or the game to movie genre then I think you will enjoy this film. At the very least, download the demo (for FREE) to get an idea of the game and the movie.
Additional Movie Review
Don’t just take my word for it, as I was browsing YouTube for trailers for the movie and game, I ran across a movie review, from Mr Blacks Movie Reviews, that I think is pretty accurate.
