    I kinda want to see this, but I'm nervous that it'll be "video game movie campy". My wife is on the fence. She said it looks like it could be good, but because it is a game movie, there is that apprehension. Do you think it'd be a movie that she would enjoy, not having played the game? (Although she did watch me play some of it.)

    Hitman is definitely a movie I would like to see, especially after playing the original codename 47 game. Actually it's kind of ironic, but one of the guys I work with looks like the hitman character, I can so see him pull it off.

    Yes...and its definitely not within those "video game movie campy" catergories either...this film at times sticks to the games and goes one further...if anything I think they should look at the film and use it to make the next Hitman game (if they ever do and i hope they do) and use some of the tactics from the film.

    Timothy Olyphant...I will be honest, I never thought he would pull it off...but remember how everyone said Daniel Craig couldnt do James Bond? Well Timothy IS Agent 47...simple as! The guy kicks ass, he doesnt get emotionally attached, certainly likes to crack a joke now and then...but overall the guy was fanstastic...it felt like I was watching the little film clips that they have in the games before u actually play...only longer and sooo much better...

    And of course your lovely lady will enjoy it...there were plenty of women in the cinema...so its not just for the lads...if ur missus likes it...take her to see it...:biggrin

    I loved it. Loved the game product placement at the start.

    Overall, it played out a bit like the games it has to be said. Be forewarned though, theres breasts in it. Great for us guys, but you might get hit by the missus.

    I love the games, theres nothing better than getting past loads of guards then killing the target then escaping without no one seeing.

    The movie looks quite good I would like to see it.

    I meant to say - fans of Dark Angel pay particular attention to the opening sequence

    The hotel trailer looks a lot like the last level of Contracts.

    I have heard rumors that there is supposed to be a sequel to Blood Money next year but Eidos are going to do Kane and Lynch 2 first apparently.

    Am I right in thinking the HITMAN is not a clone unlike the game?? I know he's got the barcode on the back of the head, but guy at work said they changed the story and didn't use clones??:blink

    Yes they do need to make more Hitman, there needs to be a sequel to Bloodmoney because of the storyline (don't want to spoil it for anyone) and what happened at the end.

    The only hitman game I have never played was the firstone, but I loved Silent Assassin because it was hard, I also loved Contracts but it was easier than Silent Assassin, Blood Money took it to a whole new level.

    I just love it when you work it all out and can get SA rating on every level. :)

    As soon as I can I am going to watch the film.

    If I remember correctly, level 4 where you have to get the micro film and kill the guy is the one with the most variations on getting silent assassin.
