The movie stars: Rupert Friend, Hannah Ware, Zachary Quinto, Ciaran Hinds and Thomas Kretschmann. We’ve posted blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Kyle Anderson from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a not so great 58 grade, saying: “In this post-“Mad Max: Fury Road” action movie age, “occasionally bonkers” just doesn’t cut it anymore.”

Stephen Farber at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 40 score, saying: “After a while, you give up trying to make sense of the plot and sit there gaping at the car crashes, fight scenes, and shootings. The problem is that even the mayhem quickly becomes repetitive.”

Richard Roeper at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 38 grade, saying: “The plot is just high-tech Swiss Cheese, filled with holes and smelling like last week’s refrigerator contents.”

Robert Abele from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 30 score. He said: “Writers Skip Woods and Michael Finch have a few tricks up their sleeves as betrayals emerge and allegiances shift. But it’s not enough to make us care or to keep the third act from being a head-scratching mess.”

Inkoo Kang at TheWrap, gave it a 30 grade, saying: “For all its cheap talk about the importance of innovation, Agent 47 just feels like a copy of a copy of a copy.”

Justin Chang from Variety, gave it a 30 score. He said: “Insofar as Hitman: Agent 47 is about anything, really, it’s about the pleasures of being on location — from the gratuitous image of Ware taking a dip in a five-star-hotel swimming pool to the sight of Singapore’s staggering Gardens by the Bay.”

Mick LaSalle from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 25 grade, saying: “Hitman: Agent 47 takes an austere European aesthetic and combines it with Hollywood mindlessness, and the result is like a guilty pleasure, minus the pleasure.”
