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.
While the assassination plot is interesting, the rest of Tango is dramatically flaccid.
Audience Reviews for Assassination Tango
Ever since I saw this movie a couple years ago I have wanted to go to Argentina to learn the tango. I thought this movie was great and well done.
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.
A supremely unhurried filmmaker, Duvall lets the story meander sleepily en route to a conclusion as ho-hum as everything preceding it.
