There are stories that can be endlessly reproduced. Versions of their plots can be readily sold mainly relying on the versatility of the main character. Examples are James Bond and Sherlock Holmes’ persona which could be brought in television, video game, or comics. In its hope to be just like these two, Hitman: Agent 47 is produced this year following its predecessor in 2007. What the filmmakers did not know was that their agent cannot be at par with the well-celebrated figures because he runs out of ingenuity, innovation, and character before even reaching the battlefield.
