Review: Hitman: Agent 47

Based on the previous Hitman movie, I expected a lot of action and I was not disappointed. There was a lot of action and killing throughout the movie.

The first part was confusing with Agent 47 trying to kill Katia when they were to team up (based on the thriller). Later in the movie, he explained to Katia that he was only marking her but did not really explain why he needed to do that.

The movie felt very much like Terminator 3 where two invincible killers try to kill each other in order to get their prize, first Katia and later her father. The purpose was pursuit is to create an army of agents similar to Agent 47 and Katia’s father, one of the founder of the original program was the key. The leader of the competing agency is an old acquaintance to Katia’s father and wants to create an army for his organization but his connection with the original project was never explained.

Katia was one of the subject of the original project which created Agent 47. Apparently the agent number also indicates their expert level and Katia is of a higher level compared to Agent 47. However, it felt more like Agent 47 patronizing or testing her whenever he ask her to decide their next move. Her ability is more like precognition similar to what we see in Minority Report, not quite what we expect from the experiment.

There was a mid credit scene where someone survives, it appears to be one of the body guards shot on the rooftop in the final scene.

Overall, it was a fun movie with fast paced action with a few twist in the plot to keep me interested.
