Hitman: Agent 47 very proudly provides several set pieces that feel just like part of the game series it’s based on. That’s good, but apart from Friend looking the part and doing what he can there isn’t much to be excited about.
It’s all very hollow and isn’t terribly interesting, but hints at what could be a better idea; have 47 be the antagonist. This seemingly unstoppable character, who comes out of nowhere and seems to have everything planned out, would make a terrifying enemy.
Neither Mortal Kombat awesome or Max Payne atrocious, it’s a perfectly serviceable late night watch.
