Assassin's Creed Reviews

February 7, 2017
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]
February 6, 2017
If you saw the trailers and liked what you saw, go ahead and just buy one of the older video games in the series used for $4.99.

Justin Kurzel's movie is flawed in part and occasionally bewildering in its decisions, yet it has a distinct filmmaking philosophy that extends all the way through to its imperfect finale.

Even though it has a good cast, 'Assassin's Creed' leaves the reasons why gamers love these characters in the way, presenting only a universe without soul and heart. [Full review in Spanish]

The only good thing about the movie are the action choreographies, although there comes a point where they get exhausting. [Full review in Spanish]
January 20, 2017
... ultimately akin to a never-ending cutscene from a game you're never allowed to play.

January 19, 2017
Despite a high-class cast, this fantasy-battle movie -- based on a video game series -- is disorienting, makes very little sense, and, worst of all, is a terrible, humorless bore.

I have never seen a group of A-list actors look and act so disinterested.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
January 18, 2017
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]
January 18, 2017
A film that could have turned out better if it had dared to take advantage of the concept, the choreography and production design. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
January 18, 2017
In spite of its fails and superficial plot, the numerous action sequences, music and visuals are more than enough to keep the spectators entertained. [Full review in Spanish]

January 13, 2017
Director Justin Kurzel adapts the eponymous violent video game and gets right to the point of religious and moral conflict in this postmodern, medieval, gothic sci-fi flick.
January 13, 2017
This time-tripping, sci-fi fantasy rarely rises above incoherence.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
January 12, 2017
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.

January 12, 2017
The filmmakers get a few points for effort but, in the end, Assassin's Creed is a failure.
January 12, 2017
An empty film (like most videogame-inspired movies) that makes a ridiculous critic on the management of power today. [Full review in Spanish]
January 12, 2017
A film with a multinational and awarded cast but still doesn't manage to take off. It seems that neither they understand the terminology used. [Full review in Spanish]
January 12, 2017
It's only a few quick cuts and a camera shake shy from being Taken 3.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 11, 2017
It doesn't understand an adaptation has to work independently from its original source. [Full review in Portuguese.]
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 11, 2017
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.
