Netflix: The Assignment

Post by Evan the Diplomat » Sat Jul 18, 2020 8:36 pm

This very unique movie stars Michelle Rodriguez and Sigourney Weaver. It was directed by Walter Hill, who some of you might know from the Warriors and 48 hours. I did not research the movie in advance and the way they produced it made me swear it was a comic book adaptation. In fact the freeze frames look like they were torn out of some graphic novel. This movie is not what it seems. Give it 30 minutes. I watched the whole thing.

I really like Michelle Rodriguez and Weaver but I didn't much care for the movie. I watched it a few months ago all the way through and was confused, baffled and could not buy in. The reality of SRS is so different than what was portrayed it was almost insulting. Those people go through absolute hell. Rodriguez is rolling around scar free without even a follow up appointment.

Weaver was not at her best. She really doesn't make a great mad scientist.
