Katia Van Dees (Ware) has been on the run almost all her life. Her mother was killed when she was just a little girl and her father abandoned her, seemingly in a bid to let her live, even as he had his own dangerous secrets regarding his work, hidden from the world. Now, as an adult, Katia tries to find her dad. Helping her – but not without his own agenda – is Agent 47 (Friend) a deadly assassin.
If you are familiar with the Hitman video game series, you’ll have no trouble recognizing the titular character of this film by his attire – Italian wool black suit and crimson tie. He, along with many others like him are the product of a super-secret genetic experiment which involved modifying a section of a person’s DNA in order to enhance – as well as subdue – certain qualities. The resultant effect would imbue the modified ‘person’ with almost superhuman powers. Agent 47 knows no fear, feels no love, nor does he tolerate idiots or idiotic questions. Nothing and nobody messes with his given objective. In this case, his objective involves helping Katia find her father, an important figure who a group known as the Syndicate, headed by LeClerq (Kretschmann), want to capture and question.
