Hitman

2

Timothy Olyphant loses more than his follicles in this middling movie of the shoot-’em-up videogame. Thanks to the barcode branded on his chrome dome, he also sacrifices what credibility he might have brought to his role as a professional assassin seeking payback after being double-crossed by his bosses. Similarities to Bourne are clearly intended, but with only one decent action set-piece in its arsenal, it doesn’t even come close. Still, if you’re curious why Olga Kurylenko got the Bond gig, you’ll find the answers here.
