Hitman (2007)

()

Action, Crime, Thriller |

Hitman is a action-thriller film directed by Xavier Gens and based on the video game series of the same name. The story revolves around Agent 47, a professional hitman, who was engineered to be an assassin by the group known as “The Organization”. He becomes ensnared in a political conspiracy and finds himself pursued by both Interpol and Russian intelligence. The film stars Timothy Olyphant, Olga Kurylenko and Dougray Scott and was released on November 21, 2007, in the United States, November 30, 2007, in the United Kingdom and December 26, 2007, in France. Though critically not well received, it was a financial success, grossing $101.3 million against a $24 million budget.

A sequel was canceled during the production, but it was followed by a reboot titled Hitman: Agent 47 starring Rupert Friend as Agent 47 and written again by Skip Woods, released on August 21, 2015.

In an undisclosed location, a group of young boys are receiving tattoos of bar codes on the back of their shaved heads; men observe, direct, and coordinate the training of the boys in firearms, demolitions, unarmed combat, and stamina and strength. The boys are trained from an early age to be extremely self-disciplined, never being squeamish or timid while during their training and operating as professionally trained, internationally operating hitmen for hire. Interpol agent Mike Whittier (Dougray Scott) arrives home and is met at gunpoint by Agent 47. The two talk about 47’s life as a professional hitman, raised and trained by a mysterious paramilitary group known simply as the Organization.
