        Even John Wick (the first one at least) is better than that thing. It is too grounded to be escapist fun, too unfeasible to be grounded & realistic, is not satire, the character is unlikeable and annoying. It's like an Instagram influencer or a Youtuber was in charge of remaking Le Samurai.

        Are you moronic?

        A trained, experienced hit man, who meticulously and deliberately sets up his sniper spot, who waits hours for the target arrives, attempts a kill shot within 30 seconds of his target arriving, while there is some escort moving around him making the shot extremely risky. After shooting the escort, this trained sniper in prone position, immediately stands up land looks with his eyes to see what happened instead of remaining in prone position and looking through the scope.

        Then the hit man organization sends two hit men to kill the protagonist hit man. They arrive at his home. What do they do? Do they lay in wait for him to arrive? Nope, they beat up his girlfriend and leave and go back to their lives. Job well done!

        The movie was trash.

          He wasnt there so they likely barged in and started a fight with the gf. The place was a wreck and he would be on full alert (which he was when he arrived at the aftermath of the scene). They figured they had done enough by threatening the frick out of him in showing him they knew where he lived and could hurt the people he cared about, and that they'd deal with him if and when he showed up again. If they had killed her right from the get-go, they would have started a revenge plot no question, so rather than say "sorry wrong adress :)" to the girlfriend and trying to track this guy down who is on high alert after fricking up a hit, they opted to instead get him to play ball/ or scare him off. You might not believe it, but this is actually a decently smart and grey way of writing this situation, rather than "they killed my heckin dog... time to suit up....". The situation is a bit more complicated. He had a chance to walk away but he is not a good guy or one to turn the other cheek. He is a pretentious vindictive butthole and that follows all the way through to his most extreme decisions until he finally decides to take the slightly higher road at the very end (but the face twitch implies his sins caught up with him)

          >instead of a meta analysis of the meaning of the film as a whole
          It's a fun movie about an assassin who hypes himself up as something he isn't and pays the price, a critique of nihilism and perfectionism.

        its literally making fun of the overly cold-clinical detached cool narrator thing. We see that despite his cool mantras and steely self reassurance, he is actually a frickup

      i thought it was great and enjoyed it though. thats what *i* think, even if you disagree.

      solid 7.5/10. I like the idea of a hitman who is a frick up and has to deal with his own self delusion. I felt it could have gone a bit farther in that regard and also the ending was a major blueball.

      In general, the film is basically the closest you can get to a proper adaptation of the video game series Hitman

      realistically i dobt think hea a frick up. hea obviously very successful and immensely reaourceful. its a story about shit going wrong for a good assassin.

        he's not a good assassin. He never actually kills a client related target the entire film. He fricks up the first one and pussies out of the last one. Everyone in between is varying degrees of involvement in the incident with his girlfriend and in one or another those moments of vengeance never go smoothly . He's like a guy playing Hitman who thinks he's S ranking missions but he's really getting like, C ranks. Just barely finishing after having alerted guards and being covered in blood.

    It was okay but it has that Netflix movie look and feel that's just impossible not to notice. The stupid chapter introductions and showing what he's looking at on his phone in a pop-up window are just ugly choices.

      yeah i couldnt shake this feeling too, that despite it being fincher and probably having a decent budget, there were choices that just felt a bit netflixy. However I should mention that several scenes feel the opposite and are really well done. The dinner scene and fight scene come to mind

      See, I was willing to go along with this theme and even looked forward to it once his pompous monologue in the beginning ended up with him botching the hit, but the rest of the movie shows him as hyper competent and effective, enjoying the fruits of a successful career in his exotic mansion with hot girlfriend and fancy connections. By the midpoint you've completely forgotten about that incident so any hint of satire is gone.
      And the ending was not only a blue ball but pants on head moronic. I wonder if an early draft had him killing that out of touch exec, only for an actual out of touch exec to read it, hit too close to home for him and make them change it.

        did we watch the same film? First he kills an innocent cabbie which feels somewhat unnecessary, so not the worst but continuing on, he CLEARLY fricks up taking care of the lawyer considering his timing was off and the secretary gets caught up in it, the fight with the big fella sees him get completely fricked up, its even implied heavily that he DOES NOT live happily ever after in an exotic mansion because we see a face twitch, meaning he ALSO fricked up at the dinner by taking the drink from the female hitman.

        No, he wasnt mr magoo tripping over himself fricking up every moment, but he also wasnt agent 47. The movie was somewhere inbetween where it was more about hubris and ego and self delusional, rather than literal motor skills or fricking moronation. So that results in a character who can still mostly do his job, but the cracks are becoming evident.

          there's no hint of poisoning or anything like that. The face twitch is PTSD and paranoia and the knowledge he'll live the rest of his life in a hell of his own creation.

            >literally the previous scene
            >" If I have to come back, maybe a radioactive speck on the lip of your favorite coffee mug. A slow death, mind you, from painful facial necrosis."

            the movie set that up for a reason. Not to say it was 100% why his face twitched but it would line up with not only that line and the fact he took the drink. The film leaves it somewhat ambiguous to say he will now have ptsd and paranoia, but ask yourself, has the film up to that point been about something like lasting trauma or never being able to leave behind a life you lived, or has it instead been about hubris and self delusion? I think we're witnessing his last and most fatal frickup rise to the surface at the very end, not that we're seeing the descent of a man who just couldnt handle it all or something

    it was gay and boring. the parts where hes arbitrarily listening to the smiths and it goes from blaring whats in his headphones to not back and forth back and forth were infuriating.

      i hate to be that guy but its kind of the point that he is a pretentious butthole that thinks he's cool. Maybe the movie isnt better for that/that doesnt make for a compelling character, but its worth mentioning that was on purpose. Its an anti-hitman movie in a way. I suppose fincher thought it would be too on the nose if it were an anti hitman movie AND the main character were some incredibly likeable guy who just wanted out. I think its more of an anti-hitman movie about a self deluded butthole, which is more interesting than if the main character were just john wick or james bond

        im sorry idk why you replied this to me

        That part was great. Diegetic music segueing into the soundtrack is cliche as hell and it was cool to see him play with that. Another director would've just played the music continuously and the violence would've been fetishized, but this way the impression the killer creates of the situation for himself is constantly checked against a more objective view.

        i get what youre saying but it was still an extremely unpleasant viewing experience and not in a rape scene kind of way. just grating

    Well, not really. It plays later in the movie. But it would have been funny if it played then.
