Hitman sex scene looks awful
There's a sex scene online for the Hitman film, and it looks uncomfortably awful, in fact I squirmed my way through it.
That's not because of the sleazy, sluttish behaviour of the woman in it, or the horrible lines Agent 47 utters, but just the whole against character moment the scene portrays, and it reinforces the idea that this film will be rubbish.
Oh sure, the action looks exciting and strong, and perhaps some of the violence looks a little stylised, but ever since I heard that Agent 47 was going to become romantically involved I've been concerned that they were going to trample all over the character.
Timothy Olyphant has been miscast as the genetically engineered assassin in Hitman, he's not quite right, there's the love story and the attempt to show him as human, there's the furore over a possible recut to remove violence, and now there's this woman who has little respect for herself attempting sex in the least erotic and arousing way possible, I'm not surprised Agent 47 isn't interested, he's maybe concerned about protection first.
Anyway, this scene is just reinforcing the idea that the film is going to be awful, especially as Stale Popcorn points out that it's that tried and failed method of trying to flash the potential audience with the promise of lurid sex in return for coming to see the film.
The whole thing just sounds terrible. Even that clip we saw the other day, sure it had some great moments, and the flash of the guys playing Hitman looked good, but it just pulls you right out of the moment and it didn't sit well at all.
In the case of Hitman I don't really think you can afford to rewrite what the character was, otherwise you're just making an assassin film, and this looks like it's trying to do both, and not very well.
Anyway, I've stalled enough, here's the sex scene from Hitman, and beware that this is not safe for minors, miners or the workplace. The sluttish woman (Olga Kurylenko in character) exposes her breasts...in small pixels mind you. Be warned though, it's not that good.
