This is what happens when you scrape the bottom of the barrel and throw your movie plot chips on a video game's story. Uwe Boll found out the hard way that in 15 minutes of plot a video game has, holes are ok, but give it 90 minutes to marinade and you've got a crap sandwich. Since there's a genetic code for violence and it's been hidden in this "apple" for over 500 years, what exactly would the Templar have done with it prior to Watson and Crick? Eat it? Or smear it on like a salve?

Everyone involved in this seemed to have the opposite idea of what people interested in this would like to see. It's fine, I didn't want any fluid assassin action in the past, please keep cutting back to Fassbender on a robot arm flailing around in a smokey hologram-projecting darkroom. Oh yes, have more vague dialogue between non-characters, be sure to repeat the word 'Creed' a zillion times, maybe then we'll start to care. At least there's a big action finale comi- oh, nope. What a wet fart.

Assassin's Creed looked like the film that was going to break the trend of poor video game film adaptions. I've never played the games but I was aware of what the source material could offer as a visual spectacle. And casting Michael Fassbender & Marion Cotillard was promising. But I'm afraid to say that this really is an underwhelming and poorly executed piece of filmmaking. The source material just doesn't translate or make any narrative sense and this film even fails to excite visually.

If there is one thing most people hate in the games it's the present day sequences. They made an Assassin's Creed film focused on the present day. When the film goes back in time (the whole point of the games) it's actually quite fun, but they decided to ruin it with constant interruptions by the boring present day storyline. This could've been great as the games offer great cinematic potential but they wasted it big time.

Eugh, this was so dull. I'm a casual fan of the games, and they seemed pretty ripe to make a decent movie from them, but yeah, this was not good. I mean, it wasn't incompetent, just super boring. It's an ugly-looking film with characters that are impossible to care about, and in general just seemed to focus on the wrong things. Not exactly a surprising disappointment, but a disappointment nonetheless.

I was really just there to see all the leaping off building moments that the trailer promised me, but 15 minutes in I was like "Oh, this is genuinely kinda intriguing," and half an hour in I was like "Ok, I'm sold. Let's enjoy this!" I'll be happy to trudge out to the cinema again for the sequels and see where it all goes.

Oh my god, what an absolute piece of shit. I'm no Assassin's Creed aficionado (only played one of the games and I never finished it), but I cannot imagine this is what any fan wanted from a film adaptation, hanging out in a boring-ass gray sci-fi prison for most of the film. Don't let anyone try to tell you this is "good for a video game movie." It's not. It's just as bad as Super Mario Bros and Street Fighter. Fuckin' stupid apple MacGuffin. UGH.

It has the appearance of a prestige film, so it plays like a solemn, serious videogame adaptation that wants desperately to look like a proto-historical film. Kurzel seems like the wrong man for that and the cast looks almost bored to death. It also commits the crime of not having one single remarkable action set-piece. That's a shame.

Dreary action film is at least kinda enjoyable for an hour, as the surprisingly formidable cast clash uneasily with each other - Fassbender sleep walks, Cotillard (bless her) seems to take the material deadly seriously, and Rampling and Irons seem engaged in a private war to crack each other up! But once the exposition is laid out, the film becomes a pretty dreary series of badly edited fight scenes, and the shadowy conspiracy stuff deflates. Stay tuned for the 18 minute(!) end titles!

It's breathtaking how earnestly Assassin's Creed believes in its own absurdity. It never apologizes, backpedals, or mansplains its loopy internal logic on DNA-encoded memories, fringe science, fringer pseudoreligion, and fringest conspiracies. Freely accepting its conceit of Free Will VS Control, there is a puzzling enjoyment to be had. The remarkable talent on display - and lack of repentance - hints that there may just be an extra dimension of meaning.

Having never played the game, the learning curve was steep, but not impossible and in the end the story was pretty simple. Fassbender is always worth a watch, unlike Irons, who hasn't been worthwhile in a decade or so. Cortillard with her dramatic makeup and sad eyes seemed to belong in a melodrama, not a computer game movie. Some cool scenes here and there, but the whole thing never really came together. Also, Colombus was one of the greatest assholes of history. Why make him a good guy!?

Many flaws. Wants the templars to be "gray" but explicitly tells us theyre the bad guys. Only jumps to the past when it needs an action scene. Big on "NO CGI" but still filmed the action in such a bungled way it looks all cgi, not to mention overchoreographed. Jeremy Irons does his best "im not in this fucking movie" impression. The ending is horribly lackluster, not to mention the templars should have been easily prepared for the assassins to WALK IN THE FRONT DOOR

No where near as bad as the reviews let me to believe, but on the other hand not what I had hoped for after seeing Fassbender/Kurzel's brilliant Macbeth adaptation. For the most part I've enjoyed the game series, but this in spite of the tagged on sci-if elements, so the movie's modern day focus, seems illadviced to say the least.

The basic idea has some potential, but every detail is disjointed absurdity. You can sense certain levels of motivations and unspoken conflict, but it would help if any of it made sense, or at least was tied to characters worth caring about. Cotillard's character is the only one that comes close and it's not nearly enough to carry the movie. Some of the action sequences in the past are cool, but nothing special enough to make this worth watching. Intriguing only in its impenetrability.

Assassin's Creed actually benefits from some alright acting on Fassbender's part, as well as some good visual direction from Justin Kurzel. That being said, it is so endlessly boring. The first few games are pretty fun, but the movie takes so much time to set up, and spends so much time in the present, which no one cares about. It can be a tough watch, but its not all bad.

What a total waste of a superb cast and production budget on a story that was all but incomprehensible, and rewrote history in the parts I was familiar with it. After reviewing some articles in Wiki, it turns out that the fictional group of assassins is allied with some Muslims in Spain (who possessed the original Apple of Eden), against the alliance between the inquisition and the Knight's Templar, which had been disbanded by the Pope to appease the King of France who was burning them at the s

As a fan of the video game franchise, I thought I might have the inside line on enjoying Assassin's Creed, but alas, I stand defeated. I guess the purpose of the robotic-arm-epidural-Animus was to meld the past and present, but it only served to alienate the viewer from both timelines, leaving them neither here nor there. Not as disappointing as Super Mario Bros., not as good as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

if you went in expecting nothing, you wouldn't be too disappointed. it's definitely better than most of the game-inspired movies, although it doesn't really have that much to set itself apart. the pacing is right, the cinematography is decent but the real lifesaver is michael fassbender, who pretty much carries the whole thing on his own. It's a shame that medieval spain setting was pretty much wasted in this movie, could have been quite fun in the games.

I think this movie did everything it possibly could to explain the complexities of the game universe in a single movie, and actually still remain entertaining. The movie many may have preferred would simple have required the audience to already be familiar with the series, which is a bad idea for a first movie. It's incredibly faithful to the series (to the point of being canon with the games), and I think pulls off the near impossible quite well.

Woof, this one blows. I had no idea what I was in for, so the absurdity of the increasingly convoluted plot left me reeling, alongside the apparently never-ending succession of A-list stars. How did they rustle this cast with such a worthless script? It should at least have invested itself in the action sequences, so that I could have a drunken time, but there is zero choreography and the frenetic editing renders every money-shot near invisible.

Poor delivery. The colors are horrid - blue/greys and yellow/blacks where nothing is clear. It regularly switches to modern-day Animus during combat; let's show them again that it's really Fassbender punching air without a shirt! Are there Templars on screen? We're going to need more crosses over here. The action is competent at times but mostly blurry. The Desync after a fall from height is probably the only good bit. Such an amazing game series cut down into a featureless blob.

Michael Fassbender is not bad but figures actions were poor. There are always a lot of fog and dust, you can barely understand whats going on. Also we dont know what is other assassins story in abstergo. One day they all go wild. And the last scene was awful, no securities, no bodyguards in such a crowd? Come ooon. Thats a shameful way to end the movie. And a shame for VideoGameSeries also. Ah you know whats the worst part? MUSICS!Watch the game story or recap in youtube, its better in everyway.

As someone who has played and beat almost every one of the games, and has read a few of the books, I refuse to hate this as much everyone else. I hate the absergo/science experiment part to this, as that could easily has been left out. It's honestly probably the worst part of this film. Fassbender seems like he would've been great for this, if it wasn't for such a horrid script. However, the assassin's world is beautiful and amazing, I feel like I'm in the game and get its points there

So what if philosophical depths are out of the film's reach, along with clarity and narrative coherence. There's a seed of ambition in this one that suggests the transfer of a video game to the screen doesn't always have to be a suicide mission. Assassin's Creed is no one's idea of perfect, but it's progress. And that's something.

there are some good action scenes; the movie takes too long to actually set its main narrative; it makes the relativists the heroes, the ones that supposedly fight for what's right, picturing the "enemies" (anti-relativism) as, basically, the face of a dictatorial desire - it's not just inaccurate, it's irresponsible to do so; it's a very ideologized movie; not a good screenplay, poor edition (with some embarrassing moments); basically: it's a bad movie both technically and ideologically.

Assassin's Creed is an apathetic movie. It doesn't seem to care about much that's going on, and it doesn't seem to care if we do, either. It's got a confusing plot, muddled or non-existent characters, choppy action, and one of the worst looks to a movie in a while. Actors look bored and are wasting their time. It looks like we're going to waiting a little while longer for that great video game adaptation.

There is not really a reasonable story and the basis of the conflict is very flimsy. But the memory travels are handled very well and the action scenes are actually groundbreaking; this might be one argument for adapting video game series, the extreme choreographies of the games can inspire brilliant sequences like the one in these. Fassbender shines as always, he is a special talent. Special shout-out to the music, which again kept the feeling of a video game environment extremely well.

How did they mess that up? Some action, some machine made up to add more "dynamism" in the present, some quality actors... And yet the overload of philosophy is risibly unfit for a movie taking itself so seriously, they get too much into the present (isn't the game's gig specifically the past time?), plenty other flaws. The ending is insulting even to people who never played the game, even the actors looked bored

Assassin's Creed gets off to a bumpy start, in that it doesn't engage the audience as well as it should. There are some nice shots, some decent world-building, and even some decent action despite the jump cuts. Unfortunately, anything good is paired with inane dialogue, too many plot holes or contrivances, a poor overall plot, and underwhelming performances from Cotillard and Irons. The first half is too noisy and the ending is ridiculously terrible. It's a shame, as there was so much potential.

I didn't expect to but I enjoyed this one. I'm a big fan of the VG franchise, but I don't think that explains it as the gaming press didn't really review it favourably. For me though, it frequently felt like I was watching the game. Absurd plot? Check. Stunning historical vistas? Check. Awesome free running? Check. Air Assassinations? Check. They spend too much time in present day (Desmond scenes were always the worst in the games) but I thought this a solid effort for a VG movie.
