Assassin's Creed Movie Poster

Assassin’s Creed

– An Assassin’s Creed Live Action movie based off the series of video games. The plot is vaguely based off the video games but instead of following the life of any of the assassins from the video game and instead follows Callum Lynch as he uses the Animus (though COMPLETELY different from how it is in the video games) to go through the life of Aguilar de Nerha in order to discover the location of the Apple of Eden, an alien artifact. However it seems that Assassin’s Creed goes down the road of bad video game movies and won’t make any sense even with context from the games.

– Stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Ariane Labed, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael K. Williams. Directed by Justin Kurzel. Rated PG-13.
