The Assignment Reviews
The Assignment took me through great non-stop action and thriller. It gave me some remarkable chills all throughout the film, many heart-pounding moments in the film, which keep you surprised. Ben Kingsley gave a wonderful performance. I must say that films like The Assignment makes me love action-movies with top-notch thriller elements.
Donald Sutherland lends some bitter but human C.I.A. reality to the morphosis of Quinn into his notorious dopple ganger, "Carlos."
(1997) The Assignment
Some are calling this one a bonified sequel to the 1973 film "The Day of the Jackal" but with a different spin on it this time! Navy officer (Aiden Quinn) whose a look-a-like to the real assassin/ terrorist calling himself 'The Jackal' eventually succumbs himself to be recruited and tortured by some gov't agency to mimic and become like the real one for the purpose of infiltrating the actual one from performing his latest hit on one of the country's leaders! With an interesting new spin and the acting chops of Ben Kingsly and Donald Sutherland despite it's budget makes this one a winner!
