Hitman: Codename 47 - Story

Story

In an undisclosed location, Subject 47 awakens in his sanatorium to a loudspeaker instructing him to train in various tasks such as scaling obstacles and using firearms, culminating in killing a guard and escaping. The loudspeaker man watches the surveillance, with a satisfied laugh.

A year later, 47 is a professional assassin of the International Contract Agency (ICA). He is briefed by his controller, Diana Burnwood, and sent around the globe to eliminate four criminal masterminds. In Hong Kong, 47 eliminates Red Dragon triad leader Lee Hong, by first weakening him through orchestrating a gang war between his and a rival triad. 47 is then sent to Colombia where he tracks down and kills drug lord Pablo Belisario Ochoa. In Budapest, 47 assassinates Franz Fuchs, an Austrian terrorist. 47 then infiltrates Rotterdam to kill notorious weapons smuggler Arkadij "Boris" Jegorov and his affiliates. Throughout his missions 47 collects letters written to his targets by the other targets, suggesting that these four are well connected. All four were once part of the French Foreign Legion at about the same time and seem to contact each other regarding an experimental human. The letters also mention a mutual friend among the men, Professor Ort-Meyer.

47 is then alerted by Diana that the same client ordered all of the assassinations, and that the client has ordered one final assassination. 47 is to kill Odon Kovacs, a doctor at a sanatorium in Satu Mare, Romania, revealed to be the one from which 47 escaped. When 47 checks in, Ort-Meyer calls the police and is revealed to be the client, as well as the original person which instructed 47 in his escape. Romanian special forces raid the building while 47 kills Kovacs, who is revealed to be a doctor that administered injections to 47.

47 then learns the truth behind his existence. He is the result of a cloning experiment which combined the genetic material of each of his four previous targets, with the addition of Ort-Meyer. The experiments were in the pursuit of creating a flawless human being. Ort-Meyer engineered 47's escape from the asylum in order to test his performance in the outside world and ordered his associates's deaths because they wanted to use the clones for their own purposes. With the help of fellow ICA Agent Smith, who is being held captive and drugged in the building, 47 uncovers a sophisticated lab beneath the hospital. In response Ort-Meyer unleashes a squad of Mr. 48s, an improved and mindlessly loyal series of clones. 47 defeats the clones and confronts Ort-Meyer, who at first mistakes him for another 48. Before Ort-Meyer is able to attack, 47 shoots him. As Ort-Meyer lays dying, mentioning how he could not even recognize his own son, 47 kneels down and forcefully breaks his neck.

Famous quotes containing the word story:

    A good story is one that isn’t demanding, that proceeds from A to B, and above all doesn’t remind us of the bad times, the cardboard patches we used to wear in our shoes, the failed farms, the way people you love just up and die. It tells us instead that hard work and perseverance can overcome all obstacles; it tells lie after lie, and the happy ending is the happiest lie of all.
    Kathleen Norris (b. 1947)

    We have defined a story as a narrative of events arranged in their time-sequence. A plot is also a narrative of events, the emphasis falling on causality. “The king died and then the queen died” is a story. “The king died, and then the queen died of grief” is a plot. The time sequence is preserved, but the sense of causality overshadows it.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    If we are on the outside, we assume a conspiracy is the perfect working of a scheme. Silent nameless men with unadorned hearts. A conspiracy is everything that ordinary life is not. It’s the inside game, cold, sure, undistracted, forever closed off to us. We are the flawed ones, the innocents, trying to make some rough sense of the daily jostle. Conspirators have a logic and a daring beyond our reach. All conspiracies are the same taut story of men who find coherence in some criminal act.
    Don Delillo (b. 1926)
