Very empty film
I don't agree with the previous reviewer at all.
I have played all the assassins creed games, which have slowly got worse as the franchise has gone on.
Ubisoft are great at not quite hitting the mark and unfortunately they've done the same with this film.
It's great if, like he said, you've played every game and are a massive fan boy. If you haven't, then you won't have a clue what's going on. They completely skip over the plot with text at the beginning. Don't really invest any time in character development or back story. I sat there wondering why I was supposed to care about any of the characters or why they even mattered.
Every fight scene was more like a choreographed martial arts film rather than a silent kill as with the games. And there were always 4 or 5 assassins involved, which in the games is a rarity. It's normally one man, working alone, in the shadows.
Even the great names in the cast couldn't save it.
Give it a watch by all means. But for me, was a poorly executed film.
Nothing Is True, Everything Is Permitted!
We work in the dark to serve the light. We are Assassins!
This movie is more of an homage to the game. The writing is similar, the plot is similar, and all the action are great and well done. The movie did a great job at recalling all the great moments in the Assassin's Creed series, and retrofitting them into this new plot. If you have played all the games, then this movie is perfect, it doesn't go into detail about the Creed or the Templars, you will have to fill in the blanks on your own. Some scenes are very powerful if you understand the back story and things that happened in the game and connect the reference. Basically this movie is a huge easter egg from the games. A bunch of references, and all in all it was fun watching it with a friend and pointing out which scenes were inspired by which game in the series. For example the ending is like a big homage to the original game trailer, the thing that started it all. Also if you are a veteran of the games, you wouldn't want to sit through the whole Assassin's vs Templars and their Creed explained for the fifth time anyways, this movie cut to the meat of the games, and I was glad that they did like this, not a lot of video games adaptation are bold enough to skip very key plot points. This movie is catered heavily on the true Assassin's Creed fans, I am for once am extremely happy I bought a movie ticket full price to go and support this production. It did not let me down and I am extremely proud of the cast and crew for their work on this movie!
Tried watching but I just gave up. For some reason I found it really boring.....
