It doesn't appear too be doing to well, guys.

I'm not interested in it, and am not going to watch it until it comes to the idiot box.

The trailer made it look entertaining.

If it wasn't for the fact that I get to go see movies about once every 6 months I'd go see it. I'll probably just end up seeing it through other means.

Also, they ranked Dead Or Alive higher than it? Are you for f***ing serious?

From the trailers, it looks like the kind of movie I might go see if I was under the heavy influence of alcohol. But probably not.

I'll probably see it since I won't have to pay for a ticket. So, why not go for free?

I could hit myself in the head with a hammer for free, but I generally avoid causing myself undue pain.

Okay, you got a point.

I guess I have a soft spot for ****ty, violent movies. (such as Snakes on a Plane ) And well, I'd rather see Hitman than The Mist.

You'd rather see a poorly rated movie than a highly rated one? :S

I wanna see this just for guns and explosions...




That's the last time I buy anything just because it's furry!

I think Peter Heartlaub summed it up when he said:

Quote:
Hitman is one of the best movies ever made from a video game, which doesn't provide you with very much information. That's like declaring the best meal you've eaten at a strip club, or the best love ballad by Kenny Loggins.

I actually enjoyed the movie quite a lot. i got a little confused with some of the plot points at first, but there were a bunch of nods and references I noticed from the game.

spoiler:

- a bunch of camera shots were from the back of the head while he was walking, and it literally felt like watching the game
- talking to Diana on the computer and on the phone. her voice was spot on.
- exploding briefcase
- some kids were playing the hitman game while 47 was walking through their room
- use of the fiber wire, although he only used it to knock someone out.

plus there was this one scene which felt so much like the game. he had to meet up with this dude and in order to do that he had to go as this arms dealer that was meeting with him. so 47 scopes the location out a bit first and plants some supplies in the bathroom toilet. then later that night he sees the target in the restaurant and drugs his food so he has to puke in the bathroom. 47 follows the guy to the bathroom, walking all casually and stops and gets frisked at the entrance cause that guy's an important dude. then he goes in the stall next to the guy and picks up his supplies. he sneaks up behind the dude and injects him then takes out the guards. takes the dude's id stuff and just walks out. I thought that was a really good sequence.



the actor was actually pretty good too. the only things i didn't like was that the actor smiled once and the character is supposed to basically be emotionless most of the time, but i guess that would make him seem too wooden the whole time.


It's my ILLUSION!

I thought the movie was alright. It had its moments, but still seemed to lack in a few parts.

But, hey, not bad for a free movie.

I thought it was pretty good, it had a generally okay story considering what they had to work with, and the action sequences were pretty cool. And surprisingly, the guy(I forget his name, hes from the last Die Hard movie) did a better job as Agent 47 than I thought he would.


Yesterday is history. Tomorrow, a mystery. Today is a gift...that is why it is called the present.
