REVIEW OF HITMAN: AGENT 47
|2015 rating: ***|
Seriously, 47 is his name and he's a HITMAN first and foremost, but may not be all that bad... A predictable element since he's our leading man, and yet the first half plays out like another film in theaters, the TERMINATOR reboot (and especially the original): a hired protector is helping a vulnerable woman survive this inhuman assassin...
Then, during part two, as the tables turn with frantic shootouts and creative car chases, it's pretty much an action-packed wallop (all based on a video game) with a few loose ends explained that weren't covered earlier: Not slowing the pace but after a while you can only handle so much bloodshed. For once 47 gets started there's just no stopping him, again and again and again... And the movie could have ended a lot sooner for to be that much more satisfying.
