Frank Kitchen is an assassin at the top of his game. When he’s double-crossed by a group of ruthless gangsters he falls into the hands of a rogue surgeon, known only as The Doctor, who transforms him into a woman against his will. Aided by a nurse with her own set of secrets, Frank the hitman becomes Tomboy the hitwoman and revenge is the first thing on her mind…
Tomboy (aka The Assignment), arrives on DVD and VOD here in the UK to little fanfare. Which, looking at the cast and crew, you’d think is surprising. The film is headlined by Michelle Rodriguez from the Fast & Furious franchise and Aliens’ Sigourney Weaver; with »

"Cascade" delivers the episode I wanted last week and does it very well. The Expanse Season 2 Episode 10 begins with the crew of The Rocinante arriving on Martian-occupied Ganymede station and starting their search for Mei Meng and Dr. Strickland.
Prax Meng: "How many people have you killed?"
Amos Burton: "I’m not sure."
Prax Meng: "You’re not sure?"
Amos Burton: "I’m not a homicidal maniac… Holden and Naomi, they’re not like me. They’re better. I’ll watch you back, but they’ll find your little girl."

As Amos Burton (Wes Chatham) and Prax Meng (Terry Chen) hunt for answers, Prax begins to realize there is a serious problem with the Station's air-recycling system. Like the man-sized Bed Bug problem that killed all those Marines wasn't enough »

“The Weeping Somnambulist” is taking its name off a humanitarian supply ship en-route to aid in the relief effort for Ganymede Station at the beginning of this chapter.
The opening of The Expanse Season 2 Episode 9 doesn’t hesitate to remind you there are large and looming questions this season.
What really happened on Ganymede—during the Earth-Mars military engagement And prior to those events?
And what is happening on Venus since Eros crashed there?
The title is a wordier way of saying “a crying sleepwalker" and that is almost an omen for how well-answered the lingering questions will be in this chapter.
Yes—the characters are all moving around the board, but they really won’t be passing “Go” just yet.
Well, this ship is a Grade-a piece of s*** but she’ll get us to Ganymede. I wouldn’t bet on it in a race, though…

"I wanted to cause Frank Kitchen enormous psychic pain." A trailer has debuted for a bit of a controversial new action film titled The Assignment, formerly known as (Re) Assignment when it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. Michelle Rodriguez stars as a transgender hitwoman, and complaints started last year from those who thought the role should've been given to an actual transgender woman. The story is actually about a male hitman who is given gender reassignment surgery as a weird revenge for a job gone wrong, and she goes back to take them out. Also starring Sigourney Weaver, Tony Shalhoub, Anthony Lapaglia, Caitlin Gerard, and Terry Chen. This doesn't look that good, but maybe it's just a bad trailer. Here's the first official trailer for Walter Hill's The Assignment, direct from YouTube: Following an ace assassin who is double crossed by gangsters and falls into the hands of »

Walter Hill hasn’t been as prolific in recent years as he was in his heyday — the genre maestro directed the likes of “48 Hrs.,” “The Warriors” and “Streets of Fire,” among many others — but he’s back with “The Assignment,” which premiered to mixed reviews and no shortage of controversy at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Formerly known as “(re)Assignment,” the film stars Michelle Rodriguez as a killer seeking vengeance after involuntarily undergoing gender-reassignment surgery. Watch the trailer below.

“This operation is your reminder of the terrible thing you did,” the surgeon responsible (Sigourney Weaver) says as the trailer opens. “This is your opportunity for redemption.” Things progress as you’d expect from there: Rodriguez begins plotting revenge, Weaver offers skewed justification for her act and bodies pile up.
