|Ready to defend the Creed?|
Assassin's Creed Review – Another video game turned into a full fledge film.
|Any last words before you 'die' Callum ?|
Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) is a convicted felon on a death row. He is however ‘resurrected’ after a secretive organization connected to the 14th Century Knights Templar trace his DNA back to an Assassin known as Aguilar. The project called Animus is supervised by brilliant scientist called Sofia Rikkin (Marion Cotillard) without realizing that her father, Alan Rikkin (Jeremy Irons) has another ulterior motive. Callum gets to relive the ventures of Aguilar and acquires extraordinary wisdom along the line. Pretty soon he figures out Alan’s intention and vows to protect the Creed’s honour just like his ancestor.
|Think we will get a sequel?|
I hope not...
After donning Magneto’s helmet and controlling metal in the X-Men series, Fassbender now changes his weapon into amazing fighting skills. His acting talent also shines in another dual role both as Callum and Aguilar. Sadly the same could not be said about Marion as her role was rather dull while Jeremy Irons was also another big name wasted in this film. The storyline similarly felt rather draggy at some point and there were too many plot holes here and there. By the end, I was just glad I didn’t get any headache watching brave stuntman’s performing several runs and jumps from one place to another, just like the movie that kept jumping from one timeline to another.
|Aguilar in action!!!|
Perhaps not being a fan of the video game didn’t help attract my interest towards this movie, I just watched it because I won the preview pass so I’m sorry Assassins, your Creed doesn’t appeal to me that much. Meh.
