I never played any of the video arcade games of Assassin’s Creed, but judging from the movie, the game must be pretty serious.
I have been waiting for this movie for over 18 months. It’s better than I expected, but not as good as I hoped it would be.
The movie is dark, grey and a bit dreary. The action is awesome!! There are many cool fight scenes and sequences. Michael Fassbender looks “hot” without a shirt on. The 3D aspects are ok.
The bigger issues are that the movie is disorganized, the story and/or plot is disjointed. Nothing happens in a sequence that you can really follow. There are philosophical undertones to the movie, but even those are not fully developed and there is too much CGI.
I left the theater with a big question mark on my face because I didn’t really understand the story or lack there-of.
“Assassin’s Creed” may join the likes of “Silent Hill” and “Hitman 47” that is a video game to big screen adaptation that isn’t very successful.
If you played the game or are a video game fanatic, the fight scenes and sequences are pretty awesome to see.
This is a 2 ½ Star Movie!
