Hitman

 (2007)

Hitman Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Based on the top-selling, award-winning videogame franchise, the Hitman is a genetically-engineered, elite assassin known only as Agent 47. His hallmarks are a lethal grace, unwavering precision, and resolute pride in his work. But even 47 couldn't anticipate a "random equation" in his life of exactitude: the unexpected stirrings of his conscience and the unfamiliar emotions aroused in him by a mysterious Russian woman. The Hitman is a mysterious and complex man of profound contradictions: He was bred from the world's deadliest criminals, but raised by an exiled brotherhood of the Church. His very existence seems to be a sin, but he wages a quiet war to rid the world of evil. He's brilliant, charismatic and charming yet reveals little about himself, has no name, and is known only by the last two digits of a barcode tattooed on the back of his head.

For more about Hitman and the Hitman Blu-ray release, see Hitman Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott, Olga Kurylenko, Robert Knepper, Ulrich Thomsen, Eriq Ebouaney

Hitman Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

20th Century Fox brings Hitman to Blu-ray with a pretty good 1080p high definition transfer. As always, the movie is framed in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The stylized image of many scenes provide whacked-out contrast and grain galore. Nevertheless, this is a serviceable transfer, but one that is not without flaws. I noted almost immediately the good-but-not-great black levels. They sometimes appear a dark gray rather than true black, and there are a few instances of contrast wavering, especially in those darker scenes. While much of the movie is razor-sharp, several scenes exhibited some softness, especially background scenes, and I felt that fine detail suffered a bit as a result, especially that of inanimate objects such as pillars, walls, and floors both in the foreground and in the background. Heavy grain also appears to spike in certain shots, and while the grain fits in some places, it doesn't in others. For instance, there is a sequence featuring two men talking to one another, sitting at the same table. The camera switches back and forth, showing one actor and then the other. One angle looks clear, while the other angle is plagued with the heaviest grain in the film, not to mention abundant softness and reddish flesh tones. This could have been intentional, but it just didn't fit with the mood of the picture at the time, or in the context of the other, less-than-stellar (but intentionally so) scenes throughout the movie. It's always slightly more difficult to rate these heavily stylized transfers, and in the case of Hitman, the image is just far too inconsistent, even taking into account the artistic licenses of the director. Despite all these quibbles, the image is still fairly good, all things considered. Perhaps had I not screened I, Robot before this I would have been a bit more forgiving. This is not a bad effort here, but it's one of the lesser of the recent Blu-ray offerings from Fox.


Hitman Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Fox has once again delivered a fine DTS-HD MA soundtrack for this release, but compared to the ones I recently heard in Independence Day and I, Robot, this one seemed slightly lacking, especially in the clarity and fidelity departments. The music over the opening titles, as pleasing and angelic as it is, sounded a bit harsh, as did many of the musical presentations throughout. The movie does feature very good surround presence, especially in the action scenes, but it fails to deliver the niceties of a top-notch track. For example, both Hitman and the recently reviewed Enchanted feature a pouring rain sequence. Whereas in the latter the track engulfed the viewer in a virtual rainstorm, sounding as clear as if you were really there, the former simply sounded like rain rather than actually recreating it, save for the whole wet part. Music enters the rear soundstage with a powerful authority. Sounds like blaring alarms are played through the rear with, well, alarming realism. However, a few surround effects sound phony, such as a few lines of dialogue after the hotel shoot-out early in the film, almost as if they were placed there by accident. Dialogue reproduction was alright, but nothing to write home about, sounding a bit coarse at times. There was also at least one scene where a few lines seemed out of synch with the movement of the actor's lips. This is certainly a very loud track, perhaps one of the loudest I've heard yet, but loud doesn't always mean good. It lacks the crispness and definition of the better mixes, such as those found in the above-referenced Enchanted and I, Robot. Bass is perhaps best described as raucous, especially during a shoot-out in chapter 16. It seemed almost too loud and maybe a bit over pumped. On the whole, this is a very loud, very boisterous mix, and if you're trying to break in that new high dollar sound system, this would be a good disc to choose for that task, but for a crisp, clean, natural, and polished mix, I'd look elsewhere.
