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.

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.

I loved this film for what it didn't try to do.

This is the type of stand-up-and-take-notice performance that burgeoning actors dream off, yet Pedraza is so effortless in her portrayal that I started to think she almost didn't have to try to be so wondrously beguiling.

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.

Are there 72 year-old hit men?

May 26, 2003 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.
April 20, 2003
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.
