The Assignment

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.

(1997) Here' the movie that got away....just saw this a couple of months ago and felt it was incredibly riveting, especially for being 14 y ears old now!! They say for each one of us there is a dopple ganger.....and (Aidan Quinn) is just that, a dopple danger for one of the world's most notorious terrorists. Ben Kingsley co-stars in a believable role as Amos, an Israeli C.I.A. agent, who first encounters "Annibal Ramirez" aka "Carlos' double" while he is on leave in the Middle East...

Donald Sutherland lends some bitter but human C.I.A. reality to the morphosis of Quinn into his notorious dopple ganger, "Carlos."

2/10: Has so much potential to be a brilliant action thriller, but unfortunately is ridden with cheesy action, corny acting, and very unrealistic scenes.

(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!

3 out of 4

Aiden Quinn in the role of a naval officer who looks like Carlos the Jackal. CIA wants Carlos gone and the naval officer is forced to try to do the job.

This is about tracking down the world's most dangerous terrorist known as Jackal. It starts with superbly done grenade explosion scene. A mind boggling mission filled with actions. A must watch!

Nice spy thriller with elements of a true story about terrorist Carlos The Jackal. Aidan Quinn, Donald Sutherland & Ben Kingsley form the main starring trio and the all do a good job. The action pieces were quite nice and it ended smartly. There were some bits and pieces in the story and the dialogue that was a bit too much, but overall it was good spy movie. The LSD scene was quite awesome.

once I get passed the awful effects, and some of the weak acting/script, this is a decent film.
February 28, 2010
In my opinion, one of the smartest, yet most underrated movies I've seen. A must see.
