Video Game adaptations don't normally go well. I think the problem is that when you take a game like Assassin's Creed that has had many different games under its belt it hard to please everyone. I have never really played the game so I luckily went into this film without any pre-set ideas on what it should be. However, this film was way to confusing for such a basic premise. I love Michael Fassbender and his performance was, as always, amazing. The actors were not the problem with this movie. It was the overly confusing plot. The jumping from present day to the past was clear but the storyline was not. The action was great and the music wonderful which in conjunction with the great performances by an amazing cast were this film's saving grace. I hope that if they decide to do another one they will focus on one time period and one storyline.
