Title: Hitman: Agent 47
Cast: Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann, Ciaran Hinds
Seen on: 04 September 2015

Clunky dialogue, clunky character development, and clunky fight scenes; Definitely better than the first try of putting the game on screen, but still not quite what it could be. I was hoping for a John Wick-type film, but instead got a watered down Wanted wannabe. I was expecting for Agent 47 to finally somehow find some emotions, I kept expecting some kind of impact of finding out you’re a genetically engineered fighting machine for Katia, and neither of them happened.

Baddie John Smith (Zachary Quinto) was one of the only good things about this film. His baddie is dangerously calm and surprisingly resistant; I can’t wait to see him back in the sequel (if they commission one). Thomas Kretchmann’s baddie was understanded and under-used, and Ciaran Hinds’ character was nothing but a storyline that didn’t need to be there.

Rating: 6/10
