Hitman: Agent 47

Hitman: Agent 47

Action, Crime, Thriller

An assassin teams up with a woman to help her find her father and uncover the mysteries of her ancestry.

The critical consensus

Lazy reboot with Rupert Friend as the genetically engineered killing machine.

**(*)(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 24/08/2015

In this punishingly vacuous thriller, Rupert Friend is a rabbit-faced assassin with dozens of expendable types on his hitlist.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 27/08/2015

Rupert Friend brings a soulful quality to a superficial movie.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 28/08/2015

The plot is generic in the extreme and the dialogue and acting barely disguises the fact that it’s really just a series of not very exciting set-pieces strung together so audiences gullible enough to shell out for this tedium can pass some time in suitably meaningless fashion.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 29/08/2015

There are few surprises and no-one really to warm to.

**(*)(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express, 30/08/2015

Too much action and a senseless plot are the ingredients for a classic console-to-silver-screen turkey.
