3.5          Jojo Panaligan (Manila Bulletin)

“Like the Hollywood films Collateral and  Unknown, both of which he admitted were his ‘pegs’ in making Hitman, the fast-paced action sequences in his film were well planned and executed that viewers would still feel a lot is going on in the fight deparment even if for relatively lower cost and lesser frequency.” (Read full review)

1.5          Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“Hitman set out to revitalize the Filipino action film, but all it does is pick up all of its worst habits. It offers up clunky action, cheesy villains, and totally gross romance in a story that refuses to make coherent sense.” (Read full review)

1.5          Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

Hitman underlines a few of the reason why the action genre died a natural death. Like its predecessors, Director Montano’s film is recklessly written, even incoherent in narrative structure. The story is derivative; the skill in film making unimpressive.” (Read full review)

1.0          Mark Angelo Virly Ching (Pisara)

Hitman is the funniest action film that I was able to watch in my lifetime, and it wasn’t even made to be funny.” (Read full review)
