"Hitman: Agent 47" is an action film directed by Aleksander Bach. The MPAA rating is R for sequences of strong violence, and some language and the running time is 96 minutes. The film's budget is 35 million and the box office revenue so far is 16,7 million.
BEFORE THE MOVIE: Ok. Even though this film right now has an 8% on Rotten Tomatoes the trailers make this movie look INCREDIBLE. The special effects look awesome and the action scenes look super-badass! Anyways, the movie looks incredible! We'll see.
AFTER THE MOVIE: Ugh. First off, let's start off with the positives. Some of the action scenes are I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E, especially the first scene in the safe-house. The killcount is un-countable... Rupert Friend, IN MY OPINION, was a better AGENT 47 than Timothy Olyphant. He had more layers than just a stale and emotionless character and I liked that they played with his emotions. For the first quarter of the movie, Zachary Quinto is actually good, but when he becomes the villain with his body armor, he is one of this year's worst villains. And the special effect work by ILM is very good.
Now for the bad stuff. Most of the movie is nothing but bad writing by Skip Woods, who doesn't know what vacation actually means (Watch A Good Day To Die Hard to find out!). Also, the ending is one of the most confusing endings I've ever seen. And the name Katia Van Dees is actually Quatre Vingt Dix, which is 90 in french for agent 90. WHY? Also, this movie has the most random post-credit scene in a film, ever. *spoiler* They brought a dead extra back to life. But the extra was just someone that 47 killed randomly. So why bother doing an end-credits scene for a sequel that will probably never happen. As a whole, this movie is god-awful, the 2007 version was way better and more fun. This film is just plain bad and I hope Skip Woods will never write a script again.
