Hitman - The Complete Series



Hey guys,

A script like Hitman normally wouldn’t be my cup of tea, but Skip Woods’ spec crossed my path and I read it. All in all, I’d say it was an opportunity lost, but ya know, you learn more from the ones that fail than the ones that succeed. I guess that’s why I became interested in it. There were so many great topics to explore, I honestly couldn’t resist diving in and swimming those deep waters. Nowhere on the web will you find a more thorough review of one screenplay, not even from “pro” coverage. And those fanboys got nothin' on me.

Hehehe...

Hope you enjoy it.

I may not be able to write worth a shit. But I know good writing and story when I see it. And I knew this movie was going to suck when Vin Diesel dropped out. I knew something had to be up with the story. Sure enough, the script is all fucked up. Also, the trailer looks awful. Who is going to see this movie based on that shit trailer? What a waste of a good story.

Don't hold back, David.

Yes, but the ones that fail are usually more interesting to me than the ones that succeed.

There are some good things to say about this. I do like Timothy Olyphant as an actor and wish him well, and Skip can write some pretty intense action scenes. He knows his guns really well, too.
