Movie Reviews

Film Comment Magazine - 9/10 by Nathan LeeThe Assignment is not so naïve as to presume that "moral and political considerations" are irrelevant to its effect, but once you wrap your head around the premise the effect is more or less played out.
WBAI Radio - 9/10 by Prairie MillerUnconventional, flamboyant, daring, provocative, and with Hill's playful when not pathologically crafted preference for outsiders. And more about masculinized females or its opposite as gender neutral ruthlessness, than transsexual anxiety as an issue.
Film Journal International - 9/10 by Maitland McDonagh[Not] a "good" movie in the conventional sense of the word, but it's a great piece of unbridled pulp fiction and a fabulous showcase for Weaver and Rodriguez.
Village Voice - 8/10 by Chris PackhamRodriguez absolutely tears it up as a stomping, cussing nuclear core of male swagger, both before and after the surgery.
The Film Stage - 8/10 by Ethan VestbyIf it's time to tread in '80s nostalgia - and, while we're at it, why not a dash of post-Tarantino '90s crime-flick remembrance to go with it? - (Re)Assignment speaks to these needs.
SFist - 8/10 by Rain JokinenHill has been mulling The Assignment's story since the 1970's, and that in itself may prove a cautionary tale: If it's taken you almost 50 years to finally get your story made into a movie, it probably wasn't that great of a story to begin with.
The Hollywood Reporter - 8/10 by Todd McCarthyThe somber tone and low-end production values may not be exactly in tune with young neo-noir enthusiasts, but more seasoned fans of the genre and the filmmaker will recognize and embrace Hill’s use of noir to play with and comment on topical issues in a deliciously subversive way, political correctness be damned.
RogerEbert.com - 8/10 by Peter SobczynskiHas enough skill and personality going for it to make it worth checking out, even if it doesn't quite live up (or down, depending on your perspective) to its borderline sleazy premise.
Time - 7/10 by Stephanie ZacharekThe Assignment isn't quite as nutso and passionate as it ought to be. Even the violence, gritty at times, feels a little impersonal and detached. But the film's tawdry precision is compelling by itself.
Detroit News - 7/10 by Adam Graham"The Assignment" is an embarrassment all around, a murky, regrettable piece of gutter cinema. Next year's Razzie Awards race starts here.
