Saw ASSASSIN’S CREED the movie, and it was pretty middling. Some good, a lot of mediocre and it looked just too much like any number of movies and video game adaptations that never really do well.
It is strange how you can sorta just get a sense of “not quite there” just from the look of a film. This movie didn’t look bad throughout, but just not very imaginative. I didn’t mind some of the effects.
Even if you go along with the central premise involving actual memories passed down through DNA somehow - and you pretty much have to go with that or not bother watching it - the increasing asks of your suspension of disbelief start to weigh it down. The apple thing which is never really explained enough. I mean, I really didn’t understand how the Medieval antagonists expected to have used it without all the technology the present day villains had. The game itself apparently has a much more cohesive and comprehensive point of view that would have probably been used in sequels, but I can’t see even someone who liked this movie would have really been all that interested in a sequel.
