"The man you've been chasing is a killer. A ghost. Rumor has it that he works for a group known only as 'The Organization'...so secret, no one knows it exists. Takes no sides - yet it has ties to every government. Its sole purpose is the training and conditioning of professional killers. These men are selected at birth - rejects, orphans, all of them - unwanted and disposable. They are made experts in every aspect of combat. And programmed for one purpose...to kill."   - Agent 47

release year: 2007
genre: action
viewing setting: home Bluray, 10/3/17 and 5/31/16 and 1/13/13 and 7/25/12

synopsis: An elite assassin confronts a complex plot involving deceptions and double-crosses.

impressions: This was a fun-to-watch hitman movie. It had more than enough violence and action to satisfy anyone. The plot was confusing at times (probably, I'd imagine, like the video games) but I was always able to hang on until the next action scene.

acting: Timothy Olyphant is the main character, who shows little emotion and is quite dangerous. Dougray Scott is the Interpol agent chasing him. Robert Knepper is an evil Russian spy. Olga Kurylenko is someone's arm candy who gets involved in all this.

final word: Ultraviolent assassin action.
