Hit Man Movie

Hit Man is an action comedy-romance film infused with both comedy and romance, highlighted by its charismatic leads – Powell and Arjona’s strong chemistry making for an easygoing movie that hits all its marks.

An engaging college professor moonlights as an unsavory hitman for hire. This film effortlessly jumps genre conventions – comedy, romance, action and philosophical contemplation are all present – while still maintaining an air of noirish darkness.

Hit Man Movie  | Richard Linklater

Hit Man is an elegant film directed by Richard Linklater that blends elements from both classic screwball comedy and noir into an entertaining journey that should appeal to audiences of all kinds. Glen Powell and Adria Arjona standout as two of this year’s most captivating performers in one of its many entertaining movies; Powell stands out in particular with his outstanding role playing off of real life mortician Bernie Tiede (loosely based on him from 2011’s Bernie).

Powell delivers an unforgettable performance as Gary Johnson, a mild-mannered philosophy lecturer who accepts a side gig with the New Orleans police department posing as a fake hitman. While at times his philosophical digressions strain credibility, they ultimately provide a stimulating look into one of Linklater’s pet themes: personal identity formation.

Hit Man Movie  | Glen Powell

Glen Powell, best known for his supporting roles in Fast Food Nation and Everybody Wants Some!! and top Gun: Maverick as well as his sexually charged performance as Maverick, gives one of his finest performances yet in Hit Man. This crowd-pleasing thriller/comedy/romance showcases Powell’s wit and screen presence while giving new life to the tired-old hitman genre with shifting tones that challenge disbelief while offering an enjoyable family film experience and romantic tension between him and Adria Arjona never lets go.

Powell, who co-wrote the film with Richard Linklater and directed himself, excels as Gary, an unlikely hitman whose expertise in psychology enables him to tailor his persona according to each client’s vision of an idealized hit man. His transformation scenes, complete with elaborate wigs and costumes as well as colorful accents are an absolute joy; underneath those disguises lies always an awkward yet fundamentally decent Gary who takes his job seriously while simultaneously living out wish fulfillment fantasies through it all – an utterly fascinating character who makes an electric pair with Arjona!

Hit Man Movie  | Adria Arjona

Richard Linklater has provided Adria Arjona with a role that matches her considerable talent, as seen in Hit Man, which premiered at Sundance and became an instant classic. Arjona plays Madison, a woman in an unhappy marriage who turns to Gary (Glen Powell) to kill her husband – only for him not be an undercover police officer like she thinks; rather he works at an academic university but moonlights for New Orleans police as an undercover sting officer!

Powell and Arjona create an excellent shape-shifting comedy-romp that seamlessly moves between comedy, romance, suspense, and philosophical considerations. Though Powell may not get his due due to his Star Wars role (though Arjona should), this film should help establish her as an action star of her own right – possibly leading up to an appearance as leading lady; her performance here proves she is up for this challenge having already excelled at drama such as Bix Caleen and slapstick comedy such as School of Rock.

Hit Man Movie  | Comedy

People often refer to Hollywood’s golden age of cinema as an “era of great movies”, when movies were more sexual, intelligent, and compelling than ever.

This movie is inspired by real-life undercover police officer Gary Johnson who moonlighted as an assassin-for-hire. Meeting with people who desired murder for themselves or another, Johnson would pose as their assassin and act accordingly, secretly recording each meeting before giving money and turning over to police to arrest their target.Hit Man Movie 

Hit Man by Linklater and Hollandsworth doesn’t explore the darker sides of its true story; instead, we are taken on a sunny journey where love triumphs over crime. A delightful comedy filled with clever humor and Powell’s stellar performance as Vic. In essence, Hit Man explores identity as passion can distort perception and drive us toward extreme actions.Hit Man Movie
