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.
