News & Interviews for Assassination Tango
Critic Reviews for Assassination Tango
Assassination Tango runs aground with an accumulation of small illogicalities.
It's a curious and unsatisfying lark, in which Robert Duvall the actor is rendered speechless by Robert Duvall the writer and sideswiped by Robert Duvall the director.
A film that uses tango as a metaphor for life ought to generate some fire. But Assassination Tango offers little heat.
What we care about in Assassination Tango is the tango, not the assassination.
He's an old assassin, she's a young local dancing hottie, and they mix dance, lust and guns.
Audience Reviews for Assassination Tango
Does a legendary actor deserve the chance to indulge as writer/director? If it's Robert Duvall, and he uses Kathy Baker and himself with a ponytail, I guess I can let it slide. Would I recommend watching said picture? No. I wanted him to succeed, but he takes no risks and elicits no emotions as writer, director, or actor! A major disappointment.
Robert Duval, a hired gun, is captivated by tango dancing in a trip to Buenos Aires. Dangers are mellowed by the presence of attractive women. The tango dancing, at the end of the film, is impacting.
