HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research and forty-six earlier Agent clones -- endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence.

Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.Written by

Exactly at 48:08, John Smith shouldn't be able to grab the gun from the dead squad without pressing the safety release button on the holster. As we can see, the holster has a safety button on the side to lock the gun. See more »
The history of man is defined by war. And war by the men who fight it. What if we could create a better man? Someone did.
The Agent program was initiated in August of 1967 by a man named Peter Aaron Litvenko. It's purpose was to create the perfect killing machine. Human beings without emotion, or fear, or remorse.

SPOILER: In a mid-credits scene, the camera zooms over Smith's body, now with white hair, to reveal he's still alive. This is the origin of The Albino villain of the franchise. See more »
Very bland. Could have been better if the trailer did not ruin it for me.
Like drinking Kool Aid without sugar.
The only thing I knew about Hit-man: Agent 47 is that it's based on the video game which I have played a few times, is the squeal to a movie so bad, I've only seen once and what the trailer showed me which was everything.
If you see the trailer than you know everything about the movie. The entire plot and all the twist and turns are actually in the trailer which makes no sense.
That should not bother me that much after all it's an action movie. You can forgive the trailer telling the whole story of the movie if the action was tight.
It was not. It was like Agent 47 was trying to shoot me from a foot away while I was standing still, and missed every time. Well, to be fair, not every time. Agent 47 had one or two "oh snap" moments, but considering the movie was littered with what was suppose to be super cool stylish action sequences, one or two is not gonna cut it.
Zachary Quito was pretty cool in this movie. Makes me feel bad that this is all he could get after Star Trek. Although I have to say I've seen him do better battle scenes as Mr. Spock than I've seen with this movie.
So, Agent 47 could have been a more Sci-fi driven, superhero influenced Taken, but it's not worthy to lick Liam Neeson boots
Catch it on Netflix if there is nothing else to watch.
