Synopsis by Linda Rasmussen
In The Assassination Run, a British made-for-TV espionage thriller, directed by Ken Hannam, a retired British spy is forced out of retirement to kill the kidnapper's of his wife. This below-average thriller fails to generate much suspense, and director Hannam takes much too leisurely a pace. This is average television spy fare that might interest lovers of the genre but will fail to hold the attention of many others. Viewer should use the fast-forward button with discretion.
