HITMAN: AGENT 47 [2015]

After the Xavier Gens' shitfest 2007 adaptation of the long-running video game franchise, first time director Aleksander Bach gives the world Hitman: Agent 47, a film reboot of the series that no one asked for.
A great deal more faithful to it's source material than the first film, Agent 47 runs around Eastern Europe diving head-first into adolescent video-game violence for straight-faced shits 'n giggles.  It's a pretty dumb film but quite often it seems to know it and fly that flag with pride and honor, amidst all the jarring product placements in the fancy action sequences.
It's not a very good film but in a weird unexpected way,  it's really not an insanely horrible film either.
