A review of Assassin's Creed.

The final nail in the coffin for video-game film adaptations? — The conversation regarding big-budget film adaptations of popular video-games has been done to death over the last 20-plus years, and with Duncan Jones’ Warcraft receiving a lukewarm reception upon its release last year, hopes were pushed even higher for Assassin’s Creed to succeed where its predecessors had not. However, despite the vast wealth of talent at its disposal, Assassin’s Creed feels more like the final nail in the coffin of the video-game film adaptation rather than the breath of fresh air that many hoped it would be.

Michael Fassbender has described Assassin's Creed as "old school." The X-Men actor said the movie uses "very little green screen in this, which is highly unusual in these films. We have stunt guys jumping across buildings in (Maltese capital) Valletta. We’ve got (stunt man) Damian Walters doing a 120-foot leap of faith, without any rope, into a bag, so it’s pretty incredible to see."
