Hitman: Agent 47 Trailer

I completely forgot that they were even making this movie. Looks like they are going the same stupid route with this Hitman movie as they did the last one. Hopefully this will be the last time we see anymore movies like this and it’s hard to believe I’m saying this since I love the games and haven’t even seen the movie yet. That being said I don’t think this is going to a huge box office draw. So far they have done a terrible job promoting it and I’m honestly not too impressed with the trailer.

Hit man had an interesting main character, a well written storyline and a good balance of both action and stealth. In fact, the game rewards you for using more stealth techniques. Hitman: Agent 47 has none of those great elements and is basically just an action movie. The Rupert Friend (Agent 47) looks just as awkward bald as Timothy Olyphant did in the last one. So they thought they could just get any actor, shave their head and BOOM, Agent 47? They didn’t even do a good job shaving his head. I honestly hate that they take beloved video games and turn them into studio cash grabs like this.

hitman4701Even with Zachary Quinto (who they showed for like 2 seconds) I’m still not really interested in seeing this. Honestly, is this why Zachary Quinto won’t do Heroes: Reborn, because he’s busy doing this crap? The Hitman games are built around stealth and character development, and this movie is anything but those things. Hitman: Agent 47 hits theaters on Aug. 28.

As always I want to know what you think Nerd Nation. Check out the official trailer below and leave me your thoughts. Do you think this is a good representation of the Hitman video games and is this movie a GO or a NO for you? Comment me below, on the Facebook page or on my Twitter.
