He's an old assassin, she's a young local dancing hottie, and they mix dance, lust and guns.

It is a form of condescension that Duvall could only perpetrate while being blinded by true love.

O ritmo é lento, falta foco à narração e o ato final é confuso. Por sorte, este não é um filme sobre "tramas", mas sobre personagens - e é aí que merece elogios.
| Original Score: 4/5

It's slow, but it's also sure-footed. Duvall takes it at his own damn pace, and his grouchy old man of a contract killer is a well-rounded and wholly believable personage.

More a song about living and dying well than a picture that makes much sense in the traditional definition.

Assassination Tango runs aground with an accumulation of small illogicalities.

Turgid and self-indulgent...haphazardly constructed and featuring dialogue that sounds poorly improvised--as well as a central character who's less a human being than a collection of cliches.

...it would be a mistake to dismiss Duvall's career behind the camera as a rich character actor's hobby.

If Duvall wanted to celebrate his hobby, he should have made a documentary.

You get the feeling Duvall took a tango trip to Buenos Aires and haphazardly decided to make a crime movie while staying there.

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.

While Duvall's contribution to the tango canon may not add much to its mystique, it still offers considerable pleasures to anyone who shares his interest.

Not so much a movie as a chance to sidle up alongside Robert Duvall and twirl around a cinematic dance floor with him.

Its many tiny character details make up for the ludicrous story it's telling.

A film that uses tango as a metaphor for life ought to generate some fire. But Assassination Tango offers little heat.

One of the most boring films in recent memory. Almost nothing happens.

A monotonously shuffling pet project that nearly induces sleep as it trips over and shoots itself in its celluloid feet.

The exquisitely genuine dance scenes are the anti-Chicago.
