A bio-engineered assassin named Agent 47 (Rupert Friend) is tasked with eliminating loose ends on the very project that created him. One of those loose ends happens to be Katia (Hannah Ware), daughter of lead scientist on the project, Litvenko (CiarĂ¡n Hinds). Meanwhile a mysterious syndicate has an agent, John Smith (Zachary Quinto), in the field for entirely different purposes. When all parties meet, the fireworks begin, who will survive, and who will be subject to their own nature? 47 Directed by Aleksander Bach, this creatively stunted project achieves a feel similar to its video game source material; plus, earns bonus points for weak dialogue, a half baked gambit and twist, and the immediate need for total suspension of disbelief. On the other hand, if you’re the kind of person who enjoys watching others kick ass on a video game without getting your own hands dirty, you may be in luck. Can I offer you something stale just in time to finish off the summer? Chomp away and prepare to chew until your jaw is sore, this one will be hard to digest. Hitman: Agent 47 is rated R.
