This film hit my in-box yesterday and I had a bad case of deja-vu. Hadn’t they already made this film?
Well, after watching the trailer below it was even more blatant. Yes, it does seem that this film is less stylish than the one that came before.
I had to dig out the trailer for the 2007 version. That one was just called Hitman. Yes, you can say that’s it’s totally different. However, it is about a genetically-engineered assassin. Both are being chased by the organisation that made them… I’ll let you decide
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.
