Storyline

Enticed by wealth and frightened by evil, Jewish attorney Nathan Ganzer's life changes when he is unexpectedly detained by the French Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) and forced to endure an intense interrogation. The agents accuse him of aiding suspected Arab terrorists and skillfully manipulate Ganzer into believing he will be implicated in the next attack.

The movie does rather well for the first twenty minutes, then firmly abandons credibility/logic territory. From then on, it's downhill all the way. Happenings become more and more absurd, and characters morph in strange ways: for instance, a mild mannered attorney is revealed as an expert torturer and killer. On top of this the film propagates the fashionable meme Palestinian resistance = terrorism.

There is some good acting but also plenty of the over-the-top variety. The more chilling moment is at the end, where a situation between two characters is left unresolved. Will there be The Assignment 2.0? I sincerely hope not.
