Assassin’s Creed Movie Fails to Impress Critics
  • Assassin’s Creed Fails to Impress Critics Who are Calling it Not the Best Videogame Based Movie Adaptation
 

Assassin’s Creed faces the wrath of the critics as they hash the premise, special effects and the entire star cast for making the movie bland and messy

Assassin’s Creed is the next shoo-in on the box office this week. Releasing in the U.S. shortly the movie has been promoted by Michael Fassbender, who is also serving as one of the producers, as the best videogame movie adaptation ever.

Michael Fassbender, who was nominated for an Oscar last year, is playing the lead role of Callum Lynch and Aguilar de Nerha. A convicted murderer heading to his execution when he is rescued by Alan Rikkin played by Jeremy Irons to participate in an experiment developed by his daughter Sofia in which Callum is transported back in time of the Spanish Inquisition in the memories of his ancestor Agular who was an Assassin.

Under the guise of Abstergo Industries, the Rikkin family have been represented as the descendants of the Knights Templar who are the contemporaries of the Assassins since long time ago. Sofia assigns Callum his first mission, which is to find the hidden location of the Apple of Eden.

The movie received a 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes with only 6 positive reviews out of total 23. The movie, as reported by a number of critics is a miss in every little detail which could have made it a perfect videogame movie adaptation.

Not only is it a miss, it delves into being so aptly focused on making the imagery and the special effects work that it strays from the characters themselves. That might have been some consolation if the special effects were extraordinary.

In many of the critics’ opinion, the movie lacks in producing the special effects which were expected from its $150 million budget. The story line of the movie does not lay a helping hand.

The premise remained somewhere between explaining all the rules and getting more action in that it nearly does not progress throughout the duration of the movie. In summary, the movie lacks cohesion, relevance and most importantly the real essence of the movie making which always comes first in any movie.

The fate of the movie is up to the audience who might be composed of large number of Assassin’s Creed videogame fans. It might do better as the audience might see it in a better light than the critics.
