Movie Night: Assassin's Creed (2016)















When Callum Lynch explores the memories of his ancestor Aguilar and gains the skills of a Master Assassin, he discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society.

















I'm not sure what I was expecting when this movie came out but as a fan of the game it was hard to really enjoy this movie. I knew going in that the films creators decided to take things in a different direction than the game and put their own unique flavor into it with the game developers blessing but that separation of game verses film really stood out in such a way that it was like watching a car crash coming knowing that it was going to happen without being able to stop it.

Granted there are some decent fight scenes and I could tell that Fassbender tried to carry the weight of this fantastically casted movie but even he and the other actors couldn't salvage just the total failure this movie turned out to be.

There is a rumor that this movie is meant to be a part of a serial set of films but I really don't know how they're going to repair what they broke.

I gave this movie three stars just because of my being partial to the Creed games, the short action sequences and cast but really its lucky to get two. I'm so disappointed.

The creators of this movie really needed to flesh this movie out. Hollow, Empty, pointless.
