Assassin's Creed Movie Review

One of the best things about the original Assassin's Creed game was the story. How can you screw that up? TeakTown has the complete breakdown of the movie.

Coming from a story and setting that's always been very theatrical in nature, on a very basic level game fans will probably find a reasonable amount to like in Assassin's Creed. It's littered with visual references and callbacks to the source material throughout, with some gorgeous cinematography that frequently and deliberately resembles the game environment - even down to the smoky HDR bloom. But as enthralling as the atmospherics and some of the action set pieces are, they're all in service of a film that rarely makes any sense to the casual viewer.
