'Hitman' (2007) Domestic box office: $39,687,694 Why the game succeeded: One of the best first-person shooter games, it often required more guile and subtlety than shooting and fighting ability. And don't mess up or you'll mar smooth hit man Agent 47's flawless record. The movie? Game over: "Hitman" was popular among gamers, but maybe not as appealing to the mainstream as filmmakers hoped. Timothy Olyphant and Dougray Scott should've helped, but they didn't. The plot was also panned as Metacritic gave the film a score of 35 out of 100 based on 22 reviews.
