First of all, what kind of Hitman goes in with a claw hammer? Even if he was trying to make it look like a home invasion or something, I'm pretty sure that many thieves are better armed than that. Maybe he took the term "hit"man a little too literally? Weak rimshot after that one.
Second, for some reason I know you're not supposed to laugh at stuff like this, but yes you are....damnit.
I actually pictured this fight being much like the "Cherry vs. Landfill" scene in Beerfest. If you haven't seen that, it's pretty funny.
