Movie premier of Assassin’s Creed – the popular video game hits the big screen. Not many game to movie have been accepted in the ‘geekdom’, warcraft being one of them, although the team here enjoyed it. Back to Assassin’s Creed, starring Michael Fasbender as present day Cal Lynch who is sentenced to death for murdering a pimp, is saved and taken to be used on a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum then discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to defend the apple of Eden which holds the key to changing the world.
It’s a gripping tale and has great fight scenes, special effects and an all round storyline. We heard people saying you need to play the game to understand the story but it’s self explanatory, unless you’re one of them people that doesn’t even under and finding Nemo, then there is no helping you.
We give Assassins Creed a strong 7.5/10
