Hit­man

The TV Guide - - TV MOVIES -

Three, 8.30pm Star­ring Ti­mothy Olyphant, Ru­pert Friend. It is based on an R18 com­puter game but don’t switch off just yet. This is ac­tu­ally a half-de­cent ac­tion flick – some­thing like a stripped-down ver­sion

of The Bourne Iden­tity. Ti­mothy Olyphant stars as anony­mous killing ma­chine Agent 47, who is dou­ble-crossed dur­ing a hit and sets out to take re­venge on his mas­ters. Fur­ther com­pli­ca­tions arise when the scant­ily clad Rus­sian girl­friend of his in­tended target is forced to go on the run with him. ★★★
