“Hit Man” is the latest film by Richard Linklater, who won an Oscar for “Boyhood”. The director once again managed to create an extraordinary picture that delighted both viewers and critics. The production became a hit on Netflix, but it was not available for streaming in Poland.

“Linklater’s latest work excites, conflicts with our sense of morality, plays with contrasts and truly relaxes. It is a neat combination of comedy, action, thriller and noir cinema, which, however, turns out to be simply an unusual story about a strange love and brings to mind associations with much more serious stories about unusual duos known from films such as “Bonnie and Clyde” and “Gangster’s Run”. However, here the rules are exaggerated comedy plot and stereotyping of characters, which, surprisingly, does not detract from their authenticity,” I wrote in my review of Richard Linklater’s latest work, which was awarded an award. Oscar for the film “Boyhood”.

He is freed from the stereotype of a boring person by having an additional job. Gary supplements his teacher’s salary by helping the police track down people who hire paid killers. When his colleague has to go on forced leave, the professor takes over the role of the hitman.

“Hit Man” was loved by both viewers and critics. The film received a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. on the freshness scale from reviewers and 93 percent. from the audience. The production premiered during the Venice International Film Festival. Then, a Netflix representative offered to buy the license to the creators for an amount twice as high as its budget, which was about $10 million.

“Hit Man”, where to watch the film in Poland?

The decision paid off for Netflix, and “Hit Man” quickly conquered the platform. In the first seven days after its premiere, American subscribers spent 1.5 billion minutes with Linklater’s work. However, you won’t find a popular title on Polish Netflix. This is due to the complexity of the rules governing the right to distribute films. In Poland, Kino Świat is responsible for “Hit Man”, and the film can be seen in cinemas from May 17. For now, we don’t know when it will be available for streaming and on which VOD platform it will be available.
