Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A thoroughly entertaining experience."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"There's a cool opening credits sequence, but beyond that 'Hitman' doesn't make much sense, is encumbered by clunky dialogue, some amateurish performances and clichéd set-pieces we've seen umpteen times before."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Hitman the film is a conventional action thriller that seeks to do nothing more than entertain with an assortment of carnage and sex, at which it is moderately successful."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"You should see this movie for the action and gunfights... oh, and for Olga Kurylenko."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"An army of skinhead assassins in matching suits seems a bit conspicuous for an agency supposedly shrouded in secrecy."
‑ Rossiter Drake, San Francisco Examiner
"[An] occasionally laughable action-thriller."
‑ Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York
"The only thing Hitman succeeds in doing is confirming what common sense could tell you without spending millions of dollars on a special-effects-filled movie: A series of novels is much richer source material than a series of video games."
‑ Tom Maurstad, Dallas Morning News
"Awkwardly paced and muddled."
‑ Tom Meek, Boston Phoenix
"Though stylishly shot and occasionally exciting, this adaptation of the popular video game can only go so far with its mindless violence and cardboard characters."
‑ Tim Grierson, Screendaily
"Only the deadpan delivery of Timothy Olyphant as Agent 47 enlivens the wooden dialogue of this collection of clichés masquerading as a silver-screen adaptation."
‑ Chad Greene, Boxoffice Magazine
"As far as it being a video game, I was in the theater and I was trying to work the remote control to close the curtains and turn the sound down."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"If someone ran this guy through a scanner, the readout would say: "Mark down and stock in straight-to-video aisle.""
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Olyphant faz o possível com um personagem unidimensional por natureza, mas o roteiro absurdo e a direção frágil de Gens, que parece acreditar que cortes rápidos substituem arcos narrativos, conferem ao filme um ar de produção feita para DVD."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"French director Xavier Gens keeps the action riveting and spectacular."
‑ Sue Pierman, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"A slick take on sniping, strangling, homicidal body doubles, and a seductive Moscow sex slave in distress, the property of a local baddie, whom the hero invites to tag along from inside his car trunk, don't ask."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
