Based on the top-selling, award-winning video game franchise, the HITMAN is a genetically-engineered, elite assassin known only as Agent 47. His very existence seems to be a sin, but he wages a quiet war to rid the world of evil. He’s brilliant, charismatic and charming – yet reveals little about himself, has no name, and is known only by the last two digits of a barcode tattooed on the back of his head. His hallmarks are a lethal grace, unwavering precision, and resolute pride in his work. But even 47 couldn't anticipate a "random equation" in his life of exactitude: the unexpected stirrings of his conscience and the unfamiliar emotions aroused in him by a mysterious Russian woman.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Hitman features the unfortunate combination of excessive violence, incoherent plot, and inane dialogue.

Violent, video game-based mayhem. Pass.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie is based on a violent video game about a professional assassin; not surprisingly, it includes lots of shooting, fighting, stabbing, falling, blood, and injured or dead bodies. Characters are ruthless and calculating, even the ones who are meant to be the "heroes." The movie's damsel in distress is hyper-sexualized -- there are repeated shots of her breasts (sometimes naked), legs, back, and pouty mouth. Language includes several uses of "f--k," plus other profanity. Explicit cocaine snorting in one scene, plus cigarette smoking and drinking.
