Relying on tired action and glitzy sequences, Hitman: Agent 47 forgets that story matters, too.
Review by Matt CummingsIt's possible that we've witnessed an earth-shattering moment in film this summer. With the arrival of Mad Max: Fury Road, a new corner has been turned in terms of action and story, forcing changes on everything that come after it and making everything in its wake look second class. That's the feeling you'll get when watching Hitman: Agent 47, a film littered with talent and prospects but whose script and action never rise to the occasion. Facebook.
