Might be the best video-game adaptation there is. Certainly neck-and-neck with "Resident Evil: Extinction." There's a purity to how it doesn't pretend to characterize beyond narrative aims. It's 13% closing credits. It's kind of glorious, really.

When the actors are not talking Assassin's Creed is quite silly and a bit of fun.

This movie was better cast and better made than any video game movie you might have seen in the past 5 years.
November 10, 2020
Well, let's go ahead and outlaw video game adaptations right now.

The scenes in the past are fun but short-lived, otherwise there were times when I just felt like looking at my bookshelves to give me something more interesting to do...

Gamers will have to keep waiting, because not even two acting powerhouses managed to save this disastrous film. [Full review in Spanish]

This movie felt really old.

This movie was so boring.
April 29, 2020
A visually murky, nonsensical work that has somehow attracted a large number of really talented actors to run through the paces of a story whose stakes are an utter mystery.

It's a film that doesn't even have the self-respect to bore, but seems intent on making its audience angry with it instead.

Nothing tempers expectations for a film's quality like seeing "based on the hit video game" tucked away on the poorly-produced poster.

Assassin's Creed is a train-wreck that commits the cardinal sin of being boring on top of making no sense.
April 25, 2019
Had the narrative only lived up to the quality of the stunts we'd be on to something great.
April 25, 2019
A big pile of non-interactive, non-engaging nonsense.

Assassin's Creed is not the top-to-bottom disaster some of my peers have painted it as, nor is it bonkers enough to suggest a forthcoming critical re-evaluation... either of those things would've been preferable to something this dour and repetitive.
April 25, 2019
Everything about this noisy, shallow mess of a movie is so convoluted and so dreadful that I doubt even die-hard fans of the video game on which its based would find much to enjoy in this cinematic voyage of sloppiness.

I walked away having an ok time.

It seems oddly patronizing to describe this as the best video game adaptation of all time, but it's true. How you take that praise is how you'll take the film.
February 13, 2019
Decent action and a wildly talented cast mask some of the issues, but they can't fully overcome a story with neither stakes nor sense.
November 4, 2018
The action is barely passable, the look of everything is hopelessly generic, the story is stripped bare and totally uninvolving, there isn't a single memorable or remotely interesting thing going on in it.
