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.
Detroit News - 9/10 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.
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.
The Film Stage - 9/10 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.
New York Times - 8/10 by Glenn KennyThe tricksy structure doesn't have much of a payoff (even though Mr. Hill constructs sequences with deft fluidity). And the role of the surgically altered assassin defeats poor Ms. Rodriguez.
Boston Herald - 8/10 by James VerniereRodriguez and Weaver are riveting. This lurid B-movie has cult following written all over it.
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.
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.
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.
