I am one of those who played this game much before this movie was made and for those of you uninitiated into the wonderful world of make believe and role playing, yup computer games, Hitman is classic role playing first person game where you are, obviously the hitman..with no name and only a number.

Timothy Olypant (remember him as the villain in Die Hard 4.0 and in Deadwood?) is the Hitman, a cold efficient killer whose only identification is a number which is tattooed onto his neck in the form of a bar code.

The movie tries and stays faithful to the storyline of the game but of course takes in some cinematic deviations. In the movie the Hitman (agent 47) finds himself at the center of a political and international conspiracy where his own employers The Agency disown him and put a hit out on him. So you have agents chasing agents and you have the ever dogged Interpol inspector Mike Whittier (Dougray Scott) who has been chasing the hitman for years across continents.

What you get is a very cold looking Timothy, some flash and bang action scenes, lots of bullets flying all over, some sleek looking gadgets and even a dedication scene where the Hitman breaks into a home where two kids are playing...what else but Hitman on PlayStation.

In the end this is a movie that came, you saw, and you forgot. This is one of those video games made into movie that will leave no lasting impression thanks to a weak script, screenplay and no great direction.
