A word of warning before you click play: this is like one of those trailers that gives away pretty much all of the movie. The first trailer for Hitman: Agent 47 actually got me a little excited for the film if for no other reason than it looked like some absurd uber-action in the vein of films like Crank, but this second one lays everything out. It still looks like dumb fun, but they totally ruin half the one-liners.
As far as the film to video game adaptation goes it has Agent 47 in a suit with a red tie and he’s killing people so there’s that. There’s a lot of promise in a Hitman film series if they can pull it off right, but the last one didn’t quite do it and it looks like they’re just going for dumb action this time around. I’m all for dumb action, but I wish with this franchise they pushed for a bit more because it’s there and Rupert Friend seems to be able to pull it off.
