Brainless violence,lot of slow motion and no story

"We determine who we are by what we do."

Before, when I had no responsibilities and enough time in the evening, I was hopelessly addicted to playing video games. Many hours I spent behind my monitor slogging myself through all sorts of levels. Wondering what would follow. I had this relentless drive to improve myself on all fronts. Nowadays, I can't bring myself to stare at a screen for hours as an addict. On the one hand I don't have the time anymore and on the other hand I don't feel like doing that anymore. But I do get excited every time there's an attempt to make a film adaptation of a video game. The meager attempts there have been to date (and somewhat successful in my opinion) are for me the "Tomb Raider" and "Resident Evil" franchise. But still there's something subtle …

Skip Woods should be fired from writing screenplays and if you don't know who he is, well lets just say he wrote such films as: X-men: Origins Wolverine, The A-Team (2010), Sabotage, Hitman (2007), and A Good Day to Die Hard.

'Hitman' Reboot Barely Bests Original

Snoogans - wrote on 08/22/2015

'Hitman: Agent 47' is a very, very slight improvement over the previous 'Hitman' movie. This reboot shows more attempt to emulate the video game series it's based off of. There are many moments throughout that definitely felt like situations from the games, and they worked within the confines of the story. The action scenes are handled decently, with fluid fight choreography being the highlight. Though, some bouts often have a few too many cuts and whipping camera movements. Agent 47 utilizes his heightened intelligence as much as his physicality when faced with staked odds. Stealth is treated as a key factor. I liked the added attention to these areas from the games. However, the rest of the film is severely lacking in any kind of entertaining value. The plot, characters, and …
