Consensus: Hitman features the unfortunate combination of excessive violence, incoherent plot, and inane dialogue.

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.

Bloody and entertaining, Hitman is superior to the average adaptation of a video game, which in itself, is worthy of celebration. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

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.

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 clichd set-pieces we've seen umpteen times before.

Massive illogic abounds throughout the video-game-based thriller Hitman, starting with the opening, which posits a mysterious organization 'so secret no one knows it exists,' even though it somehow maintains 'ties to every government.'

Tom Meek
Boston Phoenix

Awkwardly paced and muddled.
