The acclaimed composer of DISTURBIA, Geoff Zanelli, captures all of the excitement with a powerhouse orchestral score that chronicles the action-packed saga of Agent 47 (Olyphant), who is ensnared in a deadly political conspiracy. Also includes 'Ave Maria', as heard in the film's trailers.

Anyone who thinks this is lifted from Bourne is quite misguided. They should take a listen to Elfman's "Men In Black" and then reevaluate Mr. Powell's originality.
I can't wait to see what this up and coming composer releases next! His Emmy was well deserved, and from the sound of this work it was only the first of many awards.
Also, check out Zanelli's Disturbia.
While I happened to like the movie (because of the character more than anything else), those who didn't should still give the soundtrack a chance. The songs have a consistent quality to them and make great background music.
To the "Inspired by Bourne" reviewer:
Obviously you don't know soundtrack scores very well, or this is your freshman year. I'll agree there are a few moments similar to Bourne but I would say that The Rock (Harry Gregson Williams, Hans Zimmer and Nick Glennie Smith), Con Air (Mark Mancina and Trevor Rabin), Speed (Mark Mancina) and Goldeneye (Eric Serra) scores are more comparable to Hitman than John Powell's Bourne series. With the heaviest influence coming from Mark Mancina. At the least, it's not a "replica" or "rip-off" like I read in one review, it's a totally new and refreshing take on scores. By the way, I own all of the fore-mentioned scores. That's just my opinion, it's what I thought the first time I heard the score and it still is.
Also, if you do your homework and read about who Geoff Zanelli is, then you will discover that Mr. Zanelli and John Powell (Bourne series) worked together in the early days of their film composing, and are good friends. If you think that thus sounds a lot like the Bourne soundtracks, its probably because of the two composers early friendship.
Great to listen to and have on in the background for whatever you're doing. Highly recommended!
