    From trailers I guess I expected something different basically a doctor with a personal vendetta out for an assassin, captures & alters the body of the man who wronged her for redemption & a experiment and to be honest was a bit strange seeing her portray a male hitman

    I bought this movie because Michelle Rodriguez starred in it, but that anyone would believe that she was a guy in the beginning of the movie, I thought "Come on, really?" Once you get past that, you get Michelle kicking butt, and that's what we love to see, right?

    I love Michelle Rodriguez, she's always a toughie. This role takes it to a new level. Michelle goes through gender change , but revenge doesn't change her status as an assassin . Sigourney Weaver plays an intellectual DR NO type villian.

    The Assignment on BluRay is the female version of John Wick before Atomic Blonde. There is great violent action and a fairly simple plot to follow. Don't equate the film with any controversy.

    Wanted to see this just for the concept. Thought a guy would have been used for the guy part but it was just Michelle Rodriguez with a beard. Decent story though and got it for a good price

    This Movie was very hard to follow and poorly made. The script was awful. Gad I used my reward points to purchase it and was only $5.

    I didn't like this movie at all! I bought it because Michelle was in. Big mistake. I wish that I could get a refund.
