An absolute suckfest that would've been far better off focusing on the bleak existentialism of the source material than the cut-rate blockbuster it attempted to be. Timothy Olyphant, and the games, deserve much better.
Maybe I'm too retarded in my tastes, maybe (like I said before) my biggest madafakin' problem is that I get easly impressed. But I felt this movie was a great depiction of the videogames: sober, atmospheric, without tiresome action, nice violence, an extremely interesting performance by Olyphant (his sights were so defensive and cold it's just refreshing and believable). Enjoyable movie! What the hell... A GREAT ONE!
One star, sure... but hang on, it is a big star. The story is idiotic, the cast mediocre, but the visual side of Hitman is not too bad. However, as a non-fan of the game, I probably won't watch this movie again.
