Assassin's Creed is neither better nor worse than the average adaptation of a video game; there's no doubt that the film has nice performances but it's mediocre, dumb, confusing, and even boring at times. [Full review in Spanish]
A self-contained story would have worked so much better and interesting, but the ambition for a blockbuster only leaves us with something that didn't manage to entertain at all. [Full review in Spanish]
The thrilling action sequences in medieval Spain provide a glimpse of how a less convoluted version could have played out. But whenever we're about to get lost in the action, Kurzel yanks us back into the present day for more hogwash.
Rather than wrangle the frantic battles and hazy conspiracies of Assassin's Creed into a coherent epic, Kurzel has merged them into a solemn stream of psychedelia, and the result is at once ludicrous and entrancing.
