Hitman: Not a bad attempt at a film, considering it’s based on a game! Doesn’t have the simplest of plots, which was stupid considering you’re not expecting to use your brain in a film like this. Had to laugh when the text on the screen informs you we’re in St Petersburg all the time – despite the fact it’s set there. Action is top-notch: gun fights ahoy, graphic assassinations and a 4-way sword-fight! If you can look past points like “why can’t the Russian police find a guy with a MASSIVE BARCODE TATTOOED ON HIS HEAD?!?!?” it’s a thoroughly watchable film. Girls won’t like it, but it’s definitely one for the guys.

Score: 7/10
