The Hitman gives us a darker more brutal and vile Chuck Norris who is also a very sensitive and moral guy too. He's a deadly vile hitman with a heart! Michael Parkes is in this one too as an over-the-top evil doer who makes other movie bad guys look pale and shoulda got an Academy Award! Really he's that amazing! The combo of a crazed Parkes and a nasty Norris make this violent, and even xenophobic, bloody mess a real gem. This is one fun flick and Norris' best!

"The Hit Man" is one of my favorite Chuck Norris movies, primarily because of the complexity of the character he portrays. On the one hand, he is a cold-blooded, heartless, murderous brute who can blow away a cohort from point-blank range without batting an eye; on the other hand, he shows a genuine caring and depth of feeling that is completely opposite from the hit man persona. The film is quite violent, and one scene showing the revenge of one mob against the other shouldn't be viewed by anyone with a weak stomach. But fans of Chuck will be kept entertained from beginning to end. And the bad guy gets his just reward in the most perfect way in the end.

I became a fan of Chuck Norris after reading his autobiography. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of most his movies. But "The Hitman" is an exception. It is an excellent film and ranks with "Invasion USA" as Chuck Norris' best.

Norris plays a cop who is shot and left for dead by a corrupt colleague. He then assumes a new identity and infiltrates the Seattle mafia who are battling with Vancouver-based mobsters for control of the drug trade. When Iranian drug dealers move in, total war breaks out between the three groups.

Probably the best scene in any Chuck Norris film is when he walks into an Arab restaurant and single-handedly takes on the Iranian drug dealers. Let's just say that it is politically incorrect action film-making at its best!

I highly recommend this film, even for people who usually don't like Chuck Norris flicks.

The Hitman is a great example of Chuck Norris done right - great actions, great quips, and great supporting acting.

In The Hitman, Norris plays a cop who was double-crossed and thought to be killed. He knows works undercover as a hitman for the syndicate trying to to get to the bottom of his betrayal, and trying to stay alive in a turf war between the Mafia and French-Canadian gangsters.

Norris is definitely in his element in this film, and his portrayal has the calm, ease, and self-assuredness of someone who acting in a role that would be disastrous for some to pull off. The Hitman is one of his best films by far, and a must for fans of his work.

This is by far my favorite Chuck Norris movie--- he's a Hitman and one mean dude.

Too bad it's full-frame only, it was originally a widescreen release and as I remember, it uses the full frame.

And dvdtown.com calls the video "fuzzy".

How could Warner do this ? Somebody over there knows better because they put out a lot of great stuff, like the Noir collections.

Why put out a sub-standard dvd ?

It's a given fact that Chuck Norris can pull off straight thrillers better than most others in the action genre, and in that respect, "The Hitman" here is more than passable, especially when you consider the stage of the man's career wherein it was produced. Still, it's difficult to appreciate the movie 100% when considering that at the same time, Seagal and Van Damme were producing some of their most adrenaline-fueled vehicles; in comparison, Norris' film is a bit toothless, relying very heavily on a story that could conceivably been pulled off better by another star and/or director. For fans, I'd say this one's definitely worth owning, but casual karate aficionados should look in other places for their kicks.

The story: after being double-crossed by his crooked parter (Michael Parks, Kill Bill) and declared dead, policeman Cliff Garrett (Norris, Walker, Texas Ranger) goes undercover as a mob enforcer. It will be up to him to diffuse a brewing mafia war before he is uncovered.

I know I'm going to receive mucho "unhelpful" votes for writing this, but I can't help but think that Chuck was trying to emulate Steven Seagal with this vehicle. His long hair is a dead giveaway, the plot point of a police officer being declared dead only to come back later was lifted right from

The Chuck wagon keeps rolling with The Hitman. We, Sid the Elf, are only sad that eventually we will run out of Norris movies to review. Don't be at all shocked if we start reviewing Walker, Texas Ranger seasons soon. Anyway, The Hitman was a pleasant surprise to Sid. We knew the title, but we thought that there was no way Chuck would be playing a straight up hitman. He did, even if it was as an undercover cop. This just proves Chuck's depth, skill, and prowess as an actor.

At the start of the movie, Chuck plays a narcotics cop named Cliff Garrett. He is on a bust with his partner, who turns out to be dirty and shoots Chuck right in the chest, causing him to go through a plate glass window, fall three stories and land on a car. It was an absolutely harrowing sight to see a bloody Chuck being rolled into the hospital on a gurney. Somber mood in the North Pole at that point. Remember, this is Chuck, of course he wasn't dead. But he was pissed. He must have been really pissed, enough to infiltrate the mob undercover, become their top contract killer (or hitman, get it?), and painstakingly exact revenge on his bum of a partner and the gangsters who controled him.

Now, Chuck goes by the name Danny Grogan, the fierce Irish hitman for the mob. Great names in this one, they probably took about 10 seconds to come up with. Adds to the B factor. He is called a mick several times throughout the film, which always gets a solid 8 on the comedy meter. And we thought we even heard Chuck call some guy a guido or something, and that always gets a solid 9 on the comedy meter if for no other reason than it makes Sid think of the legendary Dave Kleinfeld. Hey you, you wop! Anyway, imagine Chuck's already high level of toughness. Then it goes up when he plays a hitman, obviously.
