Although John Smith initially rescues Katia from 47, stating that he's her only hope of survival, it soon becomes clear that he is not what he says and Katia teams up with 47 in the hopes of locating her father before Smith and the rest of the Syndicate. 47 reveals to Katia that she is not a normal girl and that her father imbued her with powers far superior to his. Together, they make an incredible team and put a serious hurt on members of the Syndicate. When they come up against Smith, the pair realize he is no normal man either, but instead is the next evolution in Agents and a force to be reckoned with. Whether they rescue Dr. Litvenko and stop the Syndicate or not, it will be one hell of a ride.
Everything about the aesthetics of Hitman: Agent 47 are clean and sleek. From the busy subways of Berlin, to the gleaming skyscrapers and lush gardens of Singapore, to the interiors of the Syndicate, the surroundings are beautiful to behold and incredibly modern. I really enjoyed the fight scenes, especially watching 47 take on unsuspecting foes and completely own the situation. Fight scenes are beautifully choreographed and almost look like an incredible dance, especially those where 47 and Katia work as a team, or when 47 and John Smith fight one on one. In true videogame style, everything is larger than life and quite grandiose, from the fight scenes to the locales, and even the explosive finale.
It has quite a few special features including featurettes that cover the various characters, bringing the game to the big screen once again, the stunning locales, the stunt scenes and much more, plus deleted scenes, two galleries, a Hit Counter which features pop-up trivia plus exactly what it sounds like - a death tally for 47. Also included is a small comic book in physical and digital form that is the prelude to the film. It's a fun and quick read that gives you a little more insight into 47 and his mission.
Personally, I love a good action flick and Hitman: Agent 47 is a fun popcorn movie that fits the bill. While it isn't an Oscar contender, it doesn't shoot for that (no pun intended). It sets out to be an exciting and slick action movie that does the videogame series that it is based upon justice - and it succeeds.
