I'm going to come out and say it, the critics are right, but there is a big but here. If you have played this game, you are going to truly enjoy it. The big problem that I think is not going to brake the video game curse is the fact that it isn't possible to cover the whole story in such a short amount of time and appeal to critics and people who haven't played the game and never will while satisfying gamers in a way that won't scare them away from the video game itself. So if I'm talking right now to a gamer, I would say that this movie has it all, but if I'm not, you <more>
will probably dislike the movie or simply just enjoy it as a C grade movie that got you entertained for two hours and you'll forget about it in a few more. Now that's out of the way here is my fan review. The parkour, the animus, the outfits, the scenes and the story was all an amazing representation of Assassin's Creed. It made justice to the game completely. If you are a fan of the games, you'll truly enjoy this film to its fullest potential. Lastly, Fassbender's performance was amazing and the assassin girl was crazy good. "Nothing it's true, everything is permitted." Cons: one eagle flying scene could have been enough and the last shot was cheesy, but other than that I loved this film for the same reason I love the videogames.
Saw an early screening and was not disappointed. (by louiethepuppet)
So we all know the trend of video game movies being terrible. Well, I'm happy to say Assassin's Creed BROKE that trend! Really quick one thing to point out is that people complained that the movie was giving a PG-13 rating. This is probably one of the most brutal PG-13 movies I've seen in terms of violence. It was like they were going for an R rating then at the last minute the studio was like, "You know what. Just cut out the blood." Which honestly if that's how it went I wouldn't be surprised. The choreography is fantastic and some blood is even shown. Michael <more>
Fassbender as Aguilar was a great casting choice. His character was well written and I felt a sadness for him You'll know when you watch the movie All in all a great performance! Now is the movie perfect... No. Of course not. Every movie has it's flaws. Some may say the CGI is over used Which I thought it wasn't some may hate the physics But it worked for the movie Again, little nit picks people are going to say just because they can't have fun watching a movie! Let me leave you with this. I had a blast watching this film and I highly recommend it to even people who haven't played the game. 10/10 fantastic movie to end 2016 on!
If you're an AC fan you will love this movie. (by megazeroxuxz)
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 AC 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 ester egg <more>
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 ass 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 Templar vs assassin's 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 AC 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.
I enjoyed this movie and I don't play video games (by kyltinlo)
I watched this movie with apprehension because of the bad reviews by critics. But I did enjoy the movie and I don't even play video games. And the reasons why I liked this movie is because: 1. Action scenes and chase scenes are very good and fast paced. 2. Acting by the cast was superb - Fassbender, Cotillard and co. 3. Visual effects are good.Now, for the critic's beef - 1. The story line was bad? No, it is not. It is comprehensible and with intelligent ideas and uses characters from history. 2. It is boring? This coming from people who think "Manchester by the Sea" is <more>
exciting.Assassins Creed is not comparable to and way better than Warcraft. But it looks like the critics have just lumped all video game adaptations as bad, perhaps because they don't like this genre.
There is a reason I don't pay attention to reviewers before seeing a movie; seems most of them have lost the ability to view a movie without preconceived notions. Too much over-analyzing. Very little of what is put out these days is in any way realistic. I'm not looking for realistic when I go see a movie; I'm looking for an escape from the daily grind. I'm not a gamer and decided to see the movie since I'm familiar with Michael Fassbender and I like his work. I chose to see the 3D version, which I rarely do, and am glad I did. It was a thoroughly enjoyable movie! Kudos to <more>
Damien Walters for the stunt work--great to watch.
Assassin's Creed: A Movie Worth Watching (by ncoddo)
Despite critic reviews and reports expressing their concern on yet another video game spin-off attempt, I decided to still go view the movie on its first showing. I can honestly say that not seeing this movie in theater would be a mistake. The action sequences combined with excellent cinematography and special effects allowed for a thrilling ride from both the present-day Cal Lynch to the Inquisition-Animus Aguilar segments present in the film. Being that I have previously played many of the Assassin's Creed video games, the plot proved easy to follow, flowing from one concept to the next <more>
easily. For those who have no background on the franchise, any confusion that might result from the movie's plot can be cleared up by a quick brush-up on the story-line of the Assassin's Creed games. This possible confusion that might result due to a viewer's inexperience with the story-line is the only reason this movie does not merit a 10/10 review. A word of advice that might help to clear up confusion centers of the Animus. The purpose is not to alter the past, but rather observe it through the eyes of an ancestor in order to pick up on clues and hints which could aid in present-day tasks. The task that Sofia Marion Cotillard is attempting to complete is the discovery of the Apple of Eden--basically a very important artifact desired by both the Templars and Assassins. Thus, the Animus sequences that appear to lack much background or a concrete plot are intentional due to the fact that only the sequences hinting or involving the Apple are viewed. If the entire life of Aguilar Michael Fassbender was necessary to finding the Apple, the movie might as well have just been about him. Nevertheless, anyone who is already familiar or is willing to take 30 seconds to familiarize themselves with the Assassin's Creed story will watch an excellent film--surpassing most of the recent releases this year.
We Work in the Dark to Serve the Light (by ThomasDrufke)
Besides a few yearly sports titles, I don't find myself enamored with any single video game series. That is, besides the Assassin's Creed games. The film definitely captured the game's tone, even if it sometimes makes frustrating plot choices.I'm not willing to say Assassin's Creed breaks the video game-movie "curse" if you will, but it may be the best adaptation in years. Of course, that's not saying a whole lot, and there's still so much room for improvement. Where many films these days have way too many exposition-heavy scenes, Assassin's Creed <more>
needed a few more. If you haven't played any of the games or are not familiar with the lore, there will be more than one time you'll be saying in the words of Callum Lynch "what the f*ck is going on."And frustrating or not, this story isn't necessarily structured like the games. The games are roughly 75% past and 25% present day balanced. But the film flips that into 60% present and 40% past. I'm not sure if it was budgetary reasons or the filmmakers just didn't think 15th Century Spain would be interesting to viewers, but this isn't a film about that particular time-frame. For better or worse, this is Callum Lynch's story. If that's the reason you'll dislike the movie than that's fine, but I'm not sure what the film chose not to set focus on would be the reason I would tear it apart for. Instead, the film is at its weakest when the present-day plot takes itself too seriously or you just don't fully understand certain character's motivations i.e. Marion Cotillard .To me, however, because of how much this film encapsulated the feeling of the video game, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the movies. Although used sparingly, Aguilar Lynch's ancestor in 15th Century Spain , is awesome. I would have liked some more development between him and Maria, a fellow assassin, but the action they took part in is some of the most thrilling this year. If this film makes money, I sure hope the filmmakers decide to cut down on the shadowy and smoke filled action, because when you can see fighting clearly, is when the film succeeds the most.I can't deny that this film can be pretty confusing, especially to a casual film-goer, but if you're a fan of the game I can't see you walking away disappointed overall. There are certainly some things that need fixing, but if Fox takes a leap of faith ha, see what I did there , this could be quite the franchise.+When the film focuses on the past+Fassbender+Action replicates the game's aesthetic-Needed some more exposition-Some characters are underwritten8.0/10
Da Vinci Code Meets Action and Sci-Fi (by omar-alikaj)
Basically, this movie is based on earliest Assassin's Creed games... with minor changes, and the movie adaptation is a action-adventure, less-deep version of the "Da Vinci Code" series, but involving two groups fighting each over for 500 years... the battle unexpectedly resumes in the present-day. Apart from the stunning visuals more on that below , the movie's plot, if you have the patience, actually leads somewhere, despite some complaints. It features a criminal named "Callum Lynch" who was sentenced to death for murdering someone, but his death penalty was a <more>
cover-up to be subjected to a secret experiment run by "Sofia"... and a "new life and identity" in exchange. Sofia made it sound like her facility were testing out a machine that could help Callum look back to his ancestor's past in the Muslim Spain, "Al-Andalus" AKA "Andalusia" , 500 years ago. Thus, a type of time machine that lets you travel back into one's ancient mind. She says that this is essential in knowing why mankind is so violent, and aims to cure it.Thus, the plot is divided into two: 500 years ago, and the present day, as the movie goes back and forth between the two. 500 years ago, a group of "Assassins", those game characters wearing the iconic hoods and hidden assassination tools, were appointed to steal back an ancient artifact called the "Apple of Eden", an ancient artifact that is believed to be the source that caused mankind's disobedience and free will against God Almighty... or at least in theory. This mission, as the plot expands, was essential because the Christian group, the "Templars", were in the process of destroying Al-Andalus... basically anything Muslim or "heretic", and kidnapping Sultan Muhammad's son to force his father to give up the Apple of Eden. Thus, it was revealed that Sultan Muhammad hired the Assassins from the start, foreseeing this scenario. The lead assassin, Aguilar, Callum's ancestor, and a female member were proactive in saving the prince, but failed and were about to be burned alive, then escaped to get to the Sultan by the time the Templars did. Aguilar barely escaped, but successfully assigned others to keep the Apple of Eden in a safe location. There, we return back to the present day. Throughout the movie, Callum is made to believe that his goal is to look back at his ancestor's time to better understand why mankind is so open to being violent in nature, and how that can be cured. Thus, understandably, this gets us to see Callum's father who is also transferred to the same facility, with Callum being tested to see if he'd kill his father for murdering his mother thirty years ago. But, as time passes, and the other prisoners at the facility, having sort of introduced themselves as descendants of past "Assassins", are increasingly becoming hostile towards Callum, accusing him of potentially making a bad decision by the last minute. But, having overtaken security officials and the facility, with fighting techniques and stolen weapons, they are proved wrong when Callum actually begins to realize that Sofia and her father, a pastor and owner of the said facility, are themselves descendants of the Templars... using Callum all that time to know where the Apple of Eden is! Having realized that the 500-year-old fight for the Apple of Eden just resumed, Callum and the new generation of Assassins follow Sofia and her father to London where the modern Templars celebrated the potential fall of the Assassins, and the possession of the Apple of Eden... without anticipating Callum assassinating the pastor, and stealing back the Apple of Eden. Sofia obviously blames herself, since it was her experiments that made Callum realize what he was used for by the end, while mastering his ancestor's fighting techniques, even by fighting an hallucination form of him... much to security and the said pastor's concerns. Probably, the only problem I had with the movie's story is the ending. After the assassination, we get to see the new assassins on a roof top at a long distance from the Templars' venue, then Callum deciding to fall off a roof. Then, the movie ends, with little to no hints of a new movie; not even a cliffhanger. Another strong point of the movie is the visuals. From Callum's childhood days in Mexico to Al-Andalus, there is a heavy use of the yellow color filter, which I think adds to the charm of the overall presentation of the desert areas. The CGI, especially the time-traveling mind machine, and its computer UIs, looked amazing, even the back-and-forth shots between Callum and his ancestor, Aguilar, simultaneously, demonstrating what Callum sees and experiences from Aguilar's missions and escapes. I also liked that Callum and Aguilar, not only are relatives, are played by the same actor, Michael Fassbender.The music, although sounding almost like Kayne West's soundtrack, weren't terrible to listen to, and I think they unlikely, although out of place in games, gave the movie a unique identity. The only one I hated was at least the first song in the credits. Sounded like noise. To conclude, it turns out that, like "WarCraft" before it, "Assassin's Creed" the movie has become another divisive video game movie. Some people like I enjoyed it, others didn't. From what I'd seen, and heard, the only solution is just watch the movie to see if it'd be something that you'd like. Personally, the plot develops slower, but less-rushed... thus better, than "WarCraft", that, despite liking the previous film, I actually liked this one better. Even for non-fans and non-gamers, the characters should be easier to be familiar with, along with the plot and conflicts. If you like something "Da Vinci Code", but with a bit of action-adventure, and Sci-Fi, I recommend you watch this movie.
Spoilers ahead be warned 20th Century Fox continues to impress me with films that stay true to source material, whether they'd be comic books or videos games. Assassins Creed is a rather esoteric film that will either be loved or hated.I loved it. As a fan of the games, having played every single one except Rogue and Unity, I was very pleased with the movie. It was just as smart and politically intricate as the games and I'm starting to think that the story in this movie was my favorite Assassins Creed story to date.The reason why I feel this way is that the Templar motives were <more>
different this time. In the games, the Templars usually abducted people with Creed blood so that they could tap into their DNA and unlock their genetic memories;--memories that would reveal ancient Promethean technology that those with Creed blood had protected for hundreds of years. Usually, the Templars only wanted access to top secret technology, or secrets, what they would call Apples of Eden. These Apples of Eden were sought so that the Templars would rise in the corporate world and top their competitors. Not the case this time.This time out, the Templars wanted an Apple of Eden that would reveal a unique genetic code, a DNA sequence that would supposedly eradicate and eliminate evil in humankind, especially those with Creed blood, who according to the Templars, are genetically predisposed to being violent and temperamental. But what they really wanted to do was eliminate the passionate souls, and eradicate free will from mankind entirely, so that they could eliminate any chances of anyone rebelling against them, henceforth, making the masses easier to control and manipulate. At first, they tried Consumerism, but Consumerism was failing. So their next step was DNA control.This totally raised the degree of villainy of the Templars, and speaking of villains, Jeremy Irons was absolutely amazing in this movie. Cold, chilling, even voiced and wicked as hell. This was his best performance since he played Pope Borgia. Fassbander, Cotillard, all gave very passionate performances. Everything in this film was done well, and there was not one ounce of camp in this movie. It was dark, very, very dark, and it was clear that this movie was made by passionate filmmakers and not the byproduct of a large committee. This film was not marketed for a reason. There's a reason why this film had 3 shows a day in my theater. But that's a story for another time.Nowadays, films are so filled with action-filler, that I find myself fast forwarding many action scenes. Films today are overly saturated with CGI, but Assassins Creed doesn't follow this modern trend. In this film, there is beautiful choreography, wire-work and impressive stunts. It's old school filmmaking. Great set design. Beautiful costumes and locales, and wonderful cinematography. Kudos to Justin Kurzel for making the most of his B-movie budget;--yes, 125 million dollars is B-movie budget nowadays.Overall, a 9/10. I felt the ending was a bit rushed and I think this film deserved to be a 10 episode TV series. It was a bit too plot driven and a lot of the characterizations and subplots were undeveloped. But it did not take away from what was a very unique film, that will make you take a closer look at real history, and make you wonder about what the Holocaust was truly about.
