  1. giovanni's rating of the film The Assignment

  2. VincentVendetta's rating of the film The Assignment

    There's a certain mysticism in seeing Michelle Rodriguez wearing a beard, to see the actress finding her identity through mutations of her body, becoming a man or a blonde. Sadly, The Assignment falls apart when actions are replaced by words, confessions and exposition. Because actions stars shouldn't act, they should just be. If it committed to welding queer theory like .45 magnum, it would have been a lot better.

  3. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Assignment

    Walterone và sempre omaggiato e stavolta rispetto a Jimmy Bobo saliamo di livello: un Cinema anni '70,con la ruvidezza ed il taglio tipici dei B Movie di quel periodo,in una storia cupa e malsana in cui nessuno può uscirne senza cicatrici. Michelle cruda e squadrata come non mai,ed una Weaver empatica e carismatica sino al bel finale. Bel lavoro di Hill,che ancora tiene alla grande.

  5. HKFanatic's rating of the film The Assignment

    While no one would mistake "Bullet to the Head" for an action masterpiece, it at least possessed the pulpy proficiency of a competent direct-to-video flick. "The Assignment" is just woefully inept. At times it wants to channel the sweaty melodrama of vintage John Woo, but the entire endeavor is crippled by a screenplay that amounts to a 90-minute infodump and saddles a talented cast with mouthfuls of exposition.

  6. Matt Reddick's rating of the film The Assignment

    Read the comic before I realized it was a movie.The Doctor is given way more space and Weaver gives a great turn... dumb fun, like Escape From L.A.

  7. João Eça's rating of the film The Assignment

  8. José Neves's rating of the film The Assignment

    Digital. "La fine bouche" dislike it, and in fact, the combination of times is a bit clumsy and certain editing options are corny, but how long ago did a movie not remind the glorious 80s/90s Hong Kong cinema (Woo and Hark mainly)? That courage of daring against good taste and whimsy, sprawling it under an ostentatious iconoclastic energy? Maybe since Woo's "Face/Off". Rodriguez/Weaver/Hill, what an assignment!

  10. Steve G.'s rating of the film The Assignment

    I don't think I'll ever be able to work out why Michelle Rodriguez is so committed to this fucking mess.

  11. brick_bro's rating of the film The Assignment

    It took me a full day to make sense of just one scene, and even then I hated it more.

  12. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Assignment

  13. msmichel's rating of the film The Assignment

    A ridiculous film thats' insensitivity and stupidity are manifest throughout. No one escapes unscathed here from cast to filmmakers. Not lurid enough to rate as a 'B' flick or even a grindhouse homage the film is simply an infantile bore. Skip it.

  14. rllr's rating of the film The Assignment

    Walter Hill is still making B-movies in 2017. This ain't no retro.
