What is Hitman about and when can we see it on Netflix?
The now Netflix original movie is a action comedy which uses various tropes of the genre, but promises to have unexpected twists that have conquered critics – the specialized press tends to perpetuate the stigma that weighs on conventional action cinema. Let’s take a look at the synopsis.
“Gary Johnson is New Orleans’ most wanted professional killer. To his clients, he’s the ideal hitman. But if you’re paying him to take out a cheating spouse or an abusive boss, you better watch out: He works for the police.
When he breaks protocol to help a desperate woman trying to flee an abusive boyfriend, he becomes one of her false personas, falls in love with the woman and flirts with becoming a criminal himself.
Accompanying Powell in the cast, we have Adria Arjona, Austin Amelio, Retta, Molly Bernard, Anthony Michael Frederick, Mike Markoff, Jo-Ann Robinson, Ritchie Montgomery y Nathalie J. Alarcon.
For now, we don’t know when it will be available Hitman in the Netflix catalog, or if the platform will try to bring it to theaters on a limited basis like other films. Of course, at Hobby Consolas we will be alert for when this mystery is resolved.
