Although this story of multiple timelines provides some interesting moments, the cryptic, excessive, often extremely muffled dialogue makes the film excruciatingly hard to follow.

Films based on video games are often derided as hackwork -- but Assassin's Creed is the most daring film yet from the Australian director Justin Kurze.

This is a mega-budget blockbuster that boasts one of the worst MacGuffins in the history of cinema.

There's a treat in store for anyone who takes a perverse pleasure in seeing truly terrible films, because Hollywood's latest video-game adaptation, Assassin's Creed, is a Christmas turkey with all the trimmings.
December 23, 2016
An over-cast video game movie.
December 23, 2016
Assassin's Creed mistakenly assumes that the plot is the most important element of its source material. Actually, it's the least.
December 22, 2016
I suppose you could say the film made me slightly more likely to play one of the games, but only because I'd do just about anything before I saw this movie again.
December 22, 2016
Obtuse, narratively incoherent, and ultimately frustrating, it stands as another example of how hard it is to make a good mainstream movie out of a popular computer game.

[A] wan video-game adaptation revolving around some Knights Templar nonsense.
December 22, 2016
In the game-to-film genre - which includes such memorable disasters as "Silent Hill" and "Hitman 47" - this is yet another disorganized, incoherent, nearly unwatchable entry.
December 22, 2016
Fassbender, one of the producers, and Cotillard head a lavishly wasted cast. ... All score bonus points for keeping a straight face throughout.

So what if philosophical depths are out of the film's reach, there's a seed of ambition in this one that suggests the transfer of a video game to the screen doesn't always have to be a suicide mission. And that's something.
December 21, 2016
This is all very dumb. That the film doesn't know it is agony.
December 21, 2016
Sci-fi fantasy meets pseudo history in this ill-conceived adaptation of a popular video game series.
December 21, 2016
The picture has an undeniable rough stylishness ... but in terms of coherence of storytelling it leaves the audience choking on all that swirling dust.
December 21, 2016
Unlike the actual video game, Assassin's Creed isn't ridiculous and fun, but rather ridiculous and turgid.
December 21, 2016
Assassin's Creed is good evidence that sometimes a video game is the better medium than a movie with which to tell a story.
December 21, 2016
"Assassin's Creed" isn't quite as bad as one might fear, as measured against the abysmal track record of movies inspired by video games.
December 21, 2016
It's just a mediocre action movie, poorly edited and larded with a terrible musical score, based on a video game. Nothing new there.
December 20, 2016
Assassin's Creed slays me: I have rarely had so much fun watching something so stupid.
