The Assignment - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Carlos AKA "The Jackal" Sanchez. For decades the name was enough to evoke fear in any country around the world. A master terrorist with an ice cold heart. An international gun-for-hire who took pleasure in killing and maiming the innocent. A planter of bombs and perpetrator of violence across the Middle East and Europe, he always escaped capture. For twenty years, the CIA and the Mossad, the two best equipped and trained intelligence agencies in the world, sought Carlos as priority number one. Each time they thought they had him in their clutches, he escaped -- like a ghost in the night. No one could get close to Carlos. Though his heinous deeds were infamous, the man himself remained shrouded in mystery.
