I got to see this movie on the day it was released here in India. It was around the start of December 2007. I was excited to see how this Hollywood movie which is based on a game does on the silver screen. By the way, the theatre was only two-third filled, I guess many people didnot know much about this movie and its stars. The actors who played in this movie are Timothy Olyphant (Agent 47; he has also acted in movies like Die Hard 4.0, Gone in Sixty Seconds, Girl next door), Dougray Scott (Mike Whittier; he played the villain in MI-2) and Olga Kurylenko (Nika Boronina). When the movie got over, I was shocked as the action lasted only for 100 minutes. I think I was expecting more, but still it was satisfactory. I give appreciation to Timothy Olyphant for really getting into the shoes of Agent 47. He was able to really move and hold the weapons like Agent 47 from the game series.
Hitman series of games come from the creators working for EIDOS. The Hitman series so far consist of 4 games starting in order with:
- Hitman: Codename 47
- Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
- Hitman Contracts
- Hitman: Blood Money
I haven't been able to play the last game as my system doesnot support enough graphics to run the game. But still am waiting for that day when I get to play it. I have really enjoyed playing Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and Hitman Contracts as the graphics and music were pretty cool.
