1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By S. Naimpally on May 19 2004
Format: DVD
A low-level Mafia hitman is sent to Argentina to kill a retired general for his 'crimes against humanity'. The general has an accident (breaks his leg) and so the assasination is postponed and the hitman, who likes ballroom dancing, takes tango lessons.
The film is basically an excuse to show off the tango sequences and dancing of Duvall's current girlfriend (in real life). She basically steals the movie. Duvall is a great actor but this isn't the best vehicle for him though it could have been much better with a better script and a more compelling story.
As it is the story is weak and flawed. Still, Duvall in a mediocre film is better than most other actors around and his girlfriend is spectacular. Worth viewing once, especially for Duvall fans or fans of tango.

Robert Duvall is a good actor and has been around for a long time, but his co-star who is also his wife tries way too hard and doesn't deliver at all. She is a mediocre actress who mixed her personal life with her business life and that is completely inappropriate and unprofessional. She is 41 years younger than Robert Duvall! Love is love, but this movie is as pathetic as Luciana Pedraza. Don't waste your money or your time watching a woman who can't dance and is young enough to be the granddaughter of her co-star and real life husband Robert Duvall.

Where is Tango in this movie? Ah, yes, it's at the end, when the final credits appear. Everything else is just a bunch of extremely short clips, as if it were a TV commercial. Acting by all the characters is horrible. The plot is not too bad, but the script and editing are not good at all.

Obviously an endorsement for his girlfriend's passion...the tango. The dance scenes are the only thing worth watching. Unfortunately, Robert Duvall lacks the testosterone level to successfully portray an assassin, let alone dance the tango...Go Papito!

I was intrigued from beginning to end. It's laced with violence, moreso the precarious nature of being human, touching on nuances of community, human sexuality, relationships, psychology, and the meaning of dance. The Argentine tango is a fascinating culture in and of itself. Not for everyone, perhaps, but what is? Another fine film.

The movie wasn't about Tango so much, it wasn't about the mob so much. It just didn't really go anywhere. It could of been a contender, but sadly it wasn't.

Robert Duvall is one of the greatest actors of our time. But this film smacks of a vanity piece. Plot slooooooow! Editing: please, let's have some. Lots of talking heads. Watch Tender Mercies, Lonesome Dove, or Second Hand Lions, or anything else. He was too close to this one. Like a doctor operating on his own family. He needed distance. His protagonist just did not have qualities to engender empathy for. Duvall shines in any movie as a "god" of actor! Many can't even do that. But he needs to divide responsiblities for a director and editor. Shots, though, had excellent color in the non-static scenes.

Robert Duvall shows some originality, in this captivating film. I say captivating, I couldnt turn it off, the dialouge was very realistic almost with a documentary edge, the action while not flashy or excessive had realistic grit,and I had to know how it was going to end. Being an artistic endevour you really dont know whats going to happen to our protaganist, hitman in the end.
I throw the word original at this work for a couple of reasons. The main character, "John Anderson" played by Duvall(albeit as the same cheracter we have seen him play before) is a hitman with a difference, not to much macho posturing is used creating this vulnerable,aging,and somewhat regretful professional. He's not regretful about the "jobs" he performed, but that as he nears the twilight of his life he has established no real roots. He does however now have girlfriend with a ten year old daughter, and his love for and devotion to this child shines through, as does Duvall's love for the Tango which is so beautifully performed many times for the loving camera by very attractive Argentinians. Both young and old.
The assasination plot takes a back seat to the Tango for a good portion of the film, and when Duvall brings us back to his whole purpose of being in Argentina we are as sorry as he to have to leave this wonderful dance behind.
There are one or two moments where Duvall's scenes could have been tightened up but I never felt these were very big negatives. All in all I would recommend this film to lovers of independent film, dance, and Robert Duvall fans.
