HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.
I had seen a preview on another DVD rental and was intrigued by the plot of this movie. Loved it!
Rupert is nice to look at for 96 minutes, the runtime of the movie. What a surprise to see Zachary Quinto again in a role that reprises his role in Heroes; he is not bad to look at either. Lots of action. Good versus evil. Probably filmed on location in Singapore; loved the scenery. Discovered it was also filmed in Germany.
The ending scene made no sense to me and if I tell you why, I spoil the ending.
Fast-paced and action-packed.
