Two movies titled Hitman enter, only one will leave (with its title) as Herman Davis, David Vitrano, and Robert Rau watch the Timothy Olyphant video game adaptation and a 70s blaxploitation film to determine which deserves the title Hitman.
Turns out there are two versions of the Timothy Olyphant movie. We ended up watching the one that someone uploaded for free on Youtube, which was a very strong R version that never made it into theaters. But that didn’t change how indifferent everyone felt about the 2007 Hitman, with David dubbing the movie “Hit-meh.” The 1972 version has probably one of the strongest trailers to date, but it takes a long time for the movie to pick up the pace. Even though the movie took its time, we did see Pam Grier get mauled by a lion.
Do you have an idea or even want to join the “There Can Be Only One” gang at their next viewing party? Email Robert Rau with your movie suggestion, the days you’re free to watch, and how much beer you can bring.
