Let’s get right to the point, Hitman: Agent 47 falls in line with many that the Summer of 2015 has rolled out…A cinematic failure and a waste of 90 minutes of your life.
This movie brings an adolescent approach to the viewers with a constant flow of juvenile action and suspense attempts. It fails to deviate from your stereotypical plot and storyline that has run the gamut throughout Hollywood for many years. Not once did the plot surprise me nor those sitting within earshot with it’s vanilla presentation.
The scene is set in some futuristic time with its characters all possessing “super human” traits. Agent 47, (Rupert Friend) is a genetically engineered killing machine who is on the hunt for a beautiful young lady, Katia (Hannah Ware), who possesses the ability to see in the very near future. She herself engineered by her genius father (Ciaran Hinds), who is kidnapped by an allegiance of mercenaries who want to extract his knowledge to help form an association of “super assasins” to take over the world.
Within this flat storyline, you have massive explosions, ninja-like combat skills, high powered weaponry, countless numbers of deaths and a poor attempt to make it all cover the fact there wasn’t much substance to the story to begin with.
Rating this movie proved to be quite the easy task. The lack of originality and elementary ploy twists only was able to muster up a (3) on my judicious movie grading scale of (1-10). Definitely DVD collection worthy but your big screen viewing preferences probably have a number of better options at this moment.
