Timothy Olyphant likes to compare this videogame adaptation, which finds his genetically engineered assassin a marked man, to John Woo’s The Killer. ”It’s almost like making a movie about traveling salesmen. There’s a sadness to these characters. You’re the best at what you do, but it’s a very lonely existence.” And a violent one. ”We shot a lot of people in this movie,” the Deadwood vet says. ”Hopefully in that tradition of John Woo: violence with some elegance and beauty to it.”
