Critical response[edit]

Film critic Hal Erickson has praised the film, writing, "An early effort from director Oscar 'Budd' Boetticher, Assigned to Danger was a worthwhile showcase for Gene Raymond, who'd been absent from the screen for several years..Director Boetticher is at his best in the closing reels, slowly and methodically building tension upon tension as Sullivan seeks an avenue of escape."[2]
