The new Hitman movie was... confusing. They've already told 47's tale before, but now it's a new story. It's not like the games (the little that I've played anyway). It's something new. It seems similar to the second Resident Evil movie. Looks awesome, but it feels like it's just selling via the franchise name. It's Hitman no longer.
That said, it was good. Clean. Professional. Rupert Friend plays the new 47 convincingly, Hannah Ware the unexpected partner (plot twist expected) and Zachary Quinto the enemy who... can't really keep up after all.
The villainy is never really convincing. It all feels out of atmosphere. Too clean. Too different. Not even the violence felt violent. Well, I'm starting to rant again... as an action movie: it was good! As Agent 47, it's a loose end.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
