Assassin’s Creed (2016): Another Loss for Video Game Movies

Nick Kush

A current college student, Nick founded MovieBabble in October of 2016 in order to grow his own movie knowledge as well as share his own thoughts with others in a streamlined fashion. As MovieBabble continues to grow, Nick hopes to one day become a reputable critic that many turn to first for a quality movie review.

    Love the idea of turning video game/movies like this into a HBO series–would be a great way to understand the depth of each character (i.e. Game of Thrones). Great review…keep up the good work!

    I’d say Warcraft is a superior film. Definitely more likable characters.

    Compare this to the Warcraft film. I’m interested, because from someone who is a big fan of both game series, I loved Warcraft as I thought it captivated the world nicely, but I feel AC missed the mark entirely. I haven’t seen AC yet, but knowing how the game suffers from convoluted and pendantic plot lines, I didn’t imagine it translating to the big screen too well in a two hour film. Knowing that critiques of video game movies often include the fact they’re confused on the plotlines, I feel AC needed to focus on the action and the past part, and build up to the outright modern conflict of assassins and templars. Imho I feel big scary green guys vs. humans + other good guys is much easier to grasp, and since many critiques didn’t get it, I had no hope for this movie. Sad!
