I was drooling over “Assassin’s Creed” movie ever since I watched the first trailer (and the following ones, and some clips, ahem), and, man, DID I LOVE the movie! The costumes, assassins, weapons, 15th century Spain, settings, the cast - perfectiont! The crew really did an amazing job!
And here’s a WIP shot of a piece I’ve been pushing around for a few days -__- Hope to finish it soon…
And I’m not just saying that because I am a huge fan and have played + own all the games. I thouroughly enjoyed the movie. Of course it was far from perfect, (I dare anyone to name a movie that was) but as far as video game movies go, Assassin’s Creed is on the top of my list. Critically speaking, fans or those familiar with the games will find the plot easier to follow and understand. However, it is not so exclusive that new viewers cannot join in. It is unfortunate that so many people are against the film and its franchise. The AC universe is not without its flaws, but it is far from the rotten tomatoes that are being thrown in the trash. There is so much potential within this series, and I for one will be here for ALL of it.
i was genuinely so impressed with the assassin’s creed movie. i thought it was everything it needed to be
the parallels between it and the games were so subtle and well placed which gave it the same feel as the games so you knew you were still in the world of assassin’s creed but also gave you the sense that the movie was individual from the games with a different storyline both in the modern and the ancestral world which was the idea. i absolutely loved it
the only thing that niggled me was the cutting off of Aguilar’s finger on his right hand, not his left but that’s something i can get over having been so happy with the rest of the film
i thought it captured the nature of the games and turned that nature into a motion picture very well
