A Gem...
18 September 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Stolen assignment is yet another light-hearted crime/ thriller in which a couple of newspaper reporters compete with each other to expose a murderer, and the police seem unable to do without their 'help'. A time honored theme that holds up extremely well in this ~hour long romp.

The best laid plans of our villain are dismembered one by one by our intrepid pair in a movie that is genuinely absorbing. The comedic aspects never seem to interfere with the unfolding drama and when the climax is reached the pair realize, unsurprisingly, that it must be love - for a happy ending.

The acting is top notch and the characters are well fleshed out.

For anyone with a modicum of interest in movies of a bygone era, this is essential viewing. Four and a half, from five stars is my assessment. A Gem.
