From the ludicrous plotting to the outrageous sex scenes, The Assignment exceeds the limits of believable fiction — even by today's standards. After years of dogged pursuit, the CIA and Mossad decide the only way to catch arch-terrorist Carlos the Jackal (Quinn) is to train a double who ostensibly turns on the KGB, which will in turn assassinate the real villain. Naval officer Annibal Ramirez (also Quinn) has the look and reluctantly agrees to the assignment. Ramirez unwittingly assumes many of Carlos's malicious traits.
