    So gripping and focused that it easily bests Hollywood movies with 50 times its budget.

    In place of emotional stakes, we get gleaming, stylized, occasionally slow-motion violence, filmed in such extreme close-ups and cramped spaces that it's impossible to differentiate gunman and victim.

    Brisk and technically efficient, The Assault is a dull film based on a real event that certainly wasn't.
