The mid-credits scene where Quinto's character wakes up with white hair and a pale complexion is a direct reference to the video game Hitman: Blood Money as the Syndicate assassins in the game are all albinos with white hair and pale complexion. See more »
The are two main mistakes regarding the car chase scene. First, the cars, the Audi and the Mercedes Benz G-Class, have the steering wheel on the left side.This scene is set in Singapore, and although you're allowed to drive a left hand drive car there, the more common use would be to use right hand drive cars. Second, the license plate of Agent 47's Car, the Audi, is totally wrong. The license plate of the car is SGE-1815 G. The second and third letters (GE) are assigned to Light Goods Vehicles, not private vehicles. The right combination for a private vehicle would be S (B to Z) (B to Z) followed by 4 digits and one letter for example: SDN5145G. See more »
The history of man is defined by war. And war by the men who fight it. What if we could create a better man? Someone did.
The Agent program was initiated in August of 1967 by a man named Peter Aaron Litvenko. It's purpose was to create the perfect killing machine. Human beings without emotion, or fear, or remorse.

SPOILER: In a mid-credits scene, the camera zooms over Smith's body, now with white hair, to reveal he's still alive. This is the origin of The Albino villain of the franchise. See more »
Despite good casting, very good performances, more than a correct direction, camera work, sfx, editing and music, this movie is not excellent. It has no soul, as previous version (with Timothy Olyphant, 2007) did. Comparison is inevitable. This is only an action movie: a good bunch of action scenes and essentially a mindless fun. However, no character development or an explanation who, why, where, when and so on. Previous version had it all and if someone planned sequels (or a franchise), they should have done it eight years ago. Then it would make sense. Don't get me wrong here. This movie is not a bad one and the cast gave it all to make it entertaining. But for me that is just not enough, considering the template (video game) and possibilities to develop a good idea into a more complex and challenging story. This movie returns all to the level of the video game (maybe even below that). I think that these characters deserve more. So do we. Recommended for "set-brains-to-off" fun on a weekend afternoon.
