A super-soldier program falls apart when its author goes rogue, but when its heirs move to re-capture him, not only does one of his creations turn against them but so does his greatest creation, his daughter.
What was, in so many respects, an original piece in an original world, it has various inappropriate quips and so obviously draws from other sources that it wears thin for a fan of them. Definitely recommended, but I'll leave it up to the viewer to decide on if they'd re-watch it. I reference several other sources which ought to be watched at some point, and I think their viewing would reveal just how thin this movie is. Good, but thin.
- Properly titled Hitman: Agent 47.
Continues from Hitman (2007)[doesn't exist].
As it turns out, I didn't know about Hitman (2007)[doesn't exist] and saw this one first.
- This immediately opens with a combination of X-Men, Captain America and Dark Angel - (2000 show)
- 2:30 -- Wavy hands.
- 2:45 -- Bar codes on the back of the neck, a-la Dark Angel.
- 7:00 -- Oh gods, the acting is terrible.
- This movie doesn't fuck around. It gets right to the point and stays fast.
- 8:00 -- While awesome, guns make more noise than that.
- 19:00 -- Is her voice dubbed?
- 24:50 -- Syndicate, International? Really?
- 27:30 -- He brought a bullet in with him?
- 29:50 -- Ripping off a line from one of the .. Batman films?
- Oh man, that hitman reminds me so strongly of Neil Patrick Harris that it's distracting.
- 33:15 -- Oh. My.
- 34:20 -- The big strong man saved me. I must fall in love with him.
- 35:40 -- Oh. My.
- 42:20 -- The engine bit from an episode of Firefly - (2002 TV show).
- 45:10 -- Her superpower reminds me of another movie.
- 47:20 -- Seriously, writers, you didn't have to use such fucktarded ripoff corny lines. This is a great movie, and you don't have to resort to these lows. They soil it so badly.
- 48:30 -- See the thing about her missing is that she has additional bullets.
- 48:50 -- See the thing about having additional bullets is that the unconscious bad guy can now be a dead bad guy.
- Now that I think on it, he's basically Wolverine.
- 54:10 -- "Am I to end up like you?" .. A very good question.
- 56:00 -- The orchids angle reminds me a lot of V for Vendetta - (2005 movie).
- 58:00 -- Sleeping in a chair, like The Professional - (1994 movie).
- 1:08:30 -- "Holy shit", what? Seriously, this sort of quip is fucking lame.
- I still think it should be easy to take Mr. Invulnerable out.
- 1:10:00 -- Killing the dude wouldn't be that hard. He has to eat, drink and breathe. These agents just don't think in those terms.
- The multiple hooks thing is from one of the X-Men films, when they were harpooning Wolverine.
- 1:11:00 -- Oh those too-clean cars. Is this a car commercial?
- 1:12:00 -- It would have been better to not have shown the inhaler being given.
- 1:25:00 -- Why in the fuck would she kill him? This makes zero sense at this point.
- 1:28:50 -- I hope that inhaler-explosive gets explained.
- 1:30:40 -- Didn't he get shot?
- Sigh, very poor resolution.
Sigh, second poor resolution.
