Hitman (2007)

Hitman is the tylishly cinematic story of a Hitman (surprise!), codenamed 47, based upon the game with the same name. The filming is done in part to emulate the style of the game: when he's walking slowly down the corridor, when his walking motion is filmed slightly from above, as you would see him in 3rd person, and there's even a scene where you spot the actual game on a screen within the movie. There are a lot of references to the game, its architecture and tactic, but there is also a large change in how this story is brought to the audience; how the 'Hitman' is made to seem human. He's made to have a heart, something the games completely neglect to include: and ultimately it becomes a love story as well as tactical and stealthy action. Well, maybe not that stealthy, but very tactical nevertheless.

I get a bit annoyed at seeing a lot of American actors doing a half-assed job at speaking with a Russian accent, but apart from that little detail the movie is near flawless. Olga Kurylenko (she played against Bond in one of those movies) plays 47's partner, and does a pretty good job at diluting his cold, confined heart. The story's clever and full of intrigue, with a rather direct and emotionless path through the action. Usually, the main characters in a movie really immerse themselves in their quest, in their desires and motives, but not 47. He keeps it clean and professional. Good watch.
