If they do it, I hope they won't forget to do one if Callum was to kill Allan Rikkins or his daughter. If I can find one bad thing about ac 3, it's that Daniel Cross and Warren Vidic didn't get a memory corridor, when they were killed. ^-^

Maybe because it's the main story, maybe because why not, maybe because they will stand out among the historian movies out there, maybe because it feels original after so many sequel movies out there MAYBE BECAUSE THE NEW BOOKS HAVE MODERN DAY.
I don't know I'm just getting pissed that everybody complains about the Modern Day so bad and want it removed because it's not Assassin's Creed GUESS WHAT... It's the- I'm not gonna say anything whatever

*looks at all historian movies from the last few years* Where they at?
I make the point in my video that modern day hasn't been relevant since 2012.
Trust me when I say - Nobody wants modern day gone as bad as Ubisoft does.
As stated I love it.. it's what used to get me hyped for each release...
I'm saying that it doesn't make sense to ignore the story arch for 4 years and then make it the focus of your cinematic release..
This looks like a super hero movie..
So as for that stand out part... eh.
Theres much more of those than great historical movies.

I asked this very question on Twitter, and dearest Escoblades suggested that the game version likely won't be coming now. I'm pretty bummed, as the prototype was really beautiful. :(

Goddammit. I would have thrown my money at the game version for sure, but I don't want the movie one.

and in the new trailer Callum said ''I'm beginning to like this'' Possible romance?

On the surface he is most likely referring to the thrill of going in and out of the animus, the action and the bleeding effect. In depth, his gestures might refer to the increasing attraction between Sophia and himself, and that he gets to see her during the animus sessions.

If they are gonna make another trailer I think they need to put more MD in it because the past part isn't the biggest part of the movie IMHO

The modern day has always been where the games have existed though. Whatever historical period you've visited in the series, has always been in a machine in the modern day. As such, it firmly has a right to be the focus in my view.

I'll concede that the modern day has kind of gone down the pan since AC3, but it shouldn't be written off as it's potential is huge. Just Ubisoft has been using it very poorly, and moving it to the tertiary media of books and comics. The movie is arguably making the case to reintroduce the world to Abstergo, and the history of the Invisible War. People who see that movie and like it will ultimately pick up the game next year, making it the perfect pivot moment to reintroduce it to the game series as well. They've even said the movie is ultimately only in existance purely to promote the games.

Going back to the trailer, there's also the obvious reason why it's Spanish light - and that's as the dialogue to the historical scenes is in Spanish. A brave artistic direction to some, foolhardy to others. The marketeers obviously leaned on the latter direction for the general public in my view.

Tldr - AC was at its strongest during the Desmond era, when we had a good amount of storytelling across both modern day, history, and the Isu. By all accounts the movie is trying to recapture that balance. Hopefully to its betterment.

That kinda worries me I don't want to watch a 2 hours 20 minutes commercial I want a real movie to introduce people, new people can understand what's going on and I'm sure they want it to be good but they never should've said that.
Everything else I fullt agree

Edit: Also people that are interested in more AC but don't play games might be getting the books:o

The missing ring finger puzzles me, actually. We know the need for chopping off a finger was already eliminated by the time of the Spanish inquisition. Altaďr outlined it in his Codex way before Leonardo. Callum and Ezio lived at the same time, why was one missing a finger and the other one wasn't?

It is curious...

In the leap of faith poster, he appears to have 5 fingers on his right hand and 4 on his left:
https://ubistatic9-a.akamaihd.net/resource/en-US/game/assassins-creed/ac/ac_movie_gallery-08_249560.jpg

but in the video it appears he is missing a finger from his right hand.

In this pic he has 5 fingers on his left hand, and at least 1/2 a ring finger on his right:
http://cde.cinescape.com.pe/ima/0/0/1/3/0/130908.jpg

and this pic has all 5 fingers on the right hand:
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CuaZegaWAAEnDRi.jpg

but the still frame at the start of the video shows all 10 fingers:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4haJD6W136c

so...

They screwed up somewhere
Aguilar loses the finger later in the movie
They flipped the image one or more times so the missing finger appears to swap hands

The special bomb types as well huh? Apparently Ezio and the Italian Assassins didn't hear about sticky bombs, tripwires, bouncy bombs, and shrapnel until ACR.

It could be that the knowledge of crafting the new hidden blades hadn't proliferated to other Assassin cells despite being in the hands of the Polo family for decades. It certainly didn't help things when the pages were scattered before they could finally reach Spain.

edit: wait... about the other Assassins? Maria? do they have missing fingers as well? If it's just Aguilar then it might be personal.

Maybe, but remember that it's a movie. You'll be watching it for way less time than you'll have played any particular ac games. So, it's just normal that they don't show as much of the movie than they would show of a new ac game. ^-^

That's what I think (hope)--they needed to get the name of the movie in the trailer somehow...so they did.

To say nothing of the incredible Transporter: Refueled and the TV series Of Kings and Prophets (which they also co-created) that lasted an entire two episodes before it was unceremoniously yanked from the airwaves.

Suddenly I feel a little queasy.

Jokes aside I do have concern about the writing based on the 2nd trailer. Sophia sounded so much less malicious and each of her dialogue were cliche. This also doesn't make me feel very good. Wonder why such a high budget movie wouldn't invest in good writers.

Honestly, I don't think it's fair to judge whether somebody is a bad writer/actor/anything really just based on their work, especially in creations that are team-based. Unless the results are very consistently negative for a very long amount of time (and by that I mean dozens and dozens of creations). The work is what has to be judged. For example (one of many, really), the writer for Uwe Boll's Bloodrayne, one of the worst movies ever, is also the writer for American Psycho, a polarizing but critically acclaimed film that has left a big legacy.

There are many gears and whistles that turn when creating something pretty massive like a movie or a game (and heck, there's enough even in something seemingly local and that seems like depends just on one person like a novel), sometimes they turn in a way that the end product is not good even when everyone involved is passionate and talented, and sometimes that happens repeatedly.

And, yes, the writers have not worked on anything what's universally considered above average, but then again they also didn't work in a team with people like Kurzel and Fassbender.

I don't know where you live, but here inQuebec, we do so much bad movies that not only did I came to think a movie is bad just because it's "made in Quebec", we even have a gala that serve to congratulate the best of the worst in the "made in Quebec" movies. Of course it's in french, but you are able to watch it, I dare you to say those movies are good.

There are lots of bad stuff everywhere, that's not my point. And while I suppose there are more exceptions to what I've said, the important bit is that there's a big difference between criticizing a work (it's a bad movie, a bad art piece, a bad game, bad music) and criticizing the person (bad director, bad actor, bad designer, bad artist). Because in the first case you have all the information - there's the result of a creative work, you can judge it. If you judge the second case then you're also automatically create tons of assumptions that really 99% of people have no idea about, and don't consider all the things that happen behind the scenes.

This is the eternal marketing question, isn't it? How much is too much?

Because you usually either hear people who say 'they're showing too much' or people who say 'they don't show enough' (and you usually don't hear the middle because they're content with the marketing amount so no way to know their amount).

What I can say, though, is that not showing too much is also a valid marketing strategy. It worked for Inception, for example, which in its marketing material barely ever showed any new footage, and it intrigued people and it worked for them. The game marketing usually focuses on the historical part, because that's the big draw of the franchise, historical tourism. Which, honestly, there's not too many historical action-adventure games around there. But there are enough historical action-adventure movies.

Marketing AC as a historical action-adventure movie is not interesting enough, compared to the AC modern day/historical part division, and mystery related to that. This intrigue is what's going to drive people either to try the games (if they know it's based on a video game), or go see the movie, or both. All situations are beneficial to Ubisoft.

Do someone think it is possible that the ac movie, before it truely begins, but still in the theaters, will show a trailer for the next ac game? At least this could give us something new to talk about. This would also help revive the ac forum if the Ezio collection and the movie alone fail to do so. I know that many people still write on it, but for me, it feels like we are always talking about the same thing, with a few rare threads, being the exception that confirm the rule.

It's possible. I mean , if the movie is good it would be an excellent marketing strategy but something tells me that neither Fox nor Ubisoft or Regency believe in this film. I predict a review embargo.

I don't remember if I just dreamed it or if it truly was wrote on this forum a big while back, but will Ezio truly be in the ac movie? ^-^

Do someone think it is possible that the ac movie, before it truely begins, but still in the theaters, will show a trailer for the next ac game? At least this could give us something new to talk about. This would also help revive the ac forum if the Ezio collection and the movie alone fail to do so. I know that many people still write on it, but for me, it feels like we are always talking about the same thing, with a few rare threads, being the exception that confirm the rule.

Probably too soon for that. More likely a DLC code in the Blu-Ray box.

There was speculation, but I don't think there was ever confirmation, or even anything approaching the level of rumor.



Do you guys think that the movie will have a title intro akin to the game's?

Ancestor climbs a viewpoint, the main theme plays (or Ezio's Family) and it shows:
"20th Century Fox Presents
A New Regency and Ubisoft Motion Pictures film

Assassin's Creed"

I'd cry like a baby if that were to happen


That would be cool. I'm just hoping for:

This work of fiction was designed, developed and produced

I don't think so, honestly. Guillemot has stated that the game will be released merely when it's ready, launching a wave of speculation that it might even not be released in 2017. In case that's true, there's no sense in releasing a trailer for a game to be released two years from now. On the other hand, it sort of happened with The Division, so...

Given the time period, it's certainly possible. Though I'd be suprised if any big studio could keep a secret that big. I mean, we basically know everything about every Marvel movie coming out for the next four years, and Season 6 of Game of Thrones has almost entirely been leaked. That's quite a secret to hide, and if so, they've done quite well.

(To be fair, Doctor Strange did have one secret that actually did take me well by surprise- or it would have, if I hadn't read European reviews before going to see the film).

I think that would be a great way to really earn the support and good will of fans early in the film. As to whether or not it will happen- well, I have absolutely no idea.

I hope that they won't make Ezio see Callum's Ancester, while they will be in the Assassin's tomb, if it would be during Ezio's mission, in the game. If so, that part would mean "it's not canon".

Didn't Ezio went to Spain, at some point? Also, do any of you think there will be a trailer for the ac movie, in the Ezio collection? I think I remember a trailer of the Avatar game in my copy of ac 2. ^-^

In 1491-1492 Ezio worked with Spanish Assassins against the Inquisition. He even almost killed Torquemada, presumed to be the "big bad" of the film- but spared his life. This would have happened in that period of time between the fight with Rodrigo at Venice and travelling to Rome with the Apple.

Interesting to note that 6 years later, Spanish Assassins did end up killing Torquemada. This is probably what we're going to see in the film. (This happened in 1498, a year before the confrontation in Rome began)

It might be interesting if Ezio's cameo comes early in the movie, almost as a pre-credits kind of thing where he decides to spare Torquemada. That would hook fans (both casual and... well, us) immediately, and be a nice nod to the lore.


Also, the Siege of Viana at the end of ACB (where you fight Cesare atop the walls) took place in Navarre in 1507- not technically Spain back then, but it is now. I think it's less likely that we'll see this, but it would be cool!

Ok, thanks for all the info.

So, it seems that just like Callum's ancester has probably gone in an Assassin's tomb where Ezio went, Ezio came to Spain.

Then I hope they'll meet in Spain. That way it will surely still be canon. ^-^

It will be really cool but it will also be hard for me to swallow any live actor as Ezio after having his image and personality imprinted in my brain after 3 games. It will certainly be interesting though.

I am the most optimistic for this movie but I can't feel good that the marketing for this movie has died along time ago and Fox was the one behind the latest Hitman movie (Thank God Ubisoft has control about the creativity with regency). I looked up the writers: Bill Collage, New York Minute (2004) has ****ty reviews like 4/10 reviews and I saw other movies he worked with had terrible reviews I haven't looked up his latest but I'm sure I don't have to.
Untill somebody can show me they are great I am sure this movie has bad writing. Why don't use comic book writers. I am no big fan of Marvel movies but they know there stuff right?

Edit: btw I am more of a DC guy I like the marvel movies though but I am more of a DC fan

Justin Kurzel. “Ubisoft was very generous and took me through all of the Assassin’s [Creed] games, where I discovered the origins of the franchise,” Kurzel says. “But after that, Ubisoft was clear and said, ‘now you have to investigate this story’s identity as a film.’ … I hadn’t played the game before getting involved in this project, but all of sudden, all the strong imagery I had seen learning about the game, it all started

...Please tell me you skipped Unity that will be the better thing for this

I saw the AC movie posters and I almost fanboyed and before the movie came up the trailer for AC came up and I almost fanboyed again XD the audience thought the movie looked good but some gamers were making fun of the MD and are probably gonna see the movie and bash on it. That is one problem the movie is gonna get and that is that some gamers will see the movie and totally hate MD and want it gone and still will see the movie.

It's a product from Ubisoft, which is one of the most hated gaming companies these days. Plus the movie will have a strong MD percentage and NO Ezio as far as we know, so don't expect a lot good reviews......

No matter the reviews, I'll watch it. So far I adore every ac game/video I got and I also like at lot the couple of novel I readed so far. Hell one of the most hated ac game ever, ac iii, is my favorite, so far, while, while Altair as got a very big number of fan, I didn't like it as much as Aveline, just like I loved ac liberation hd way more than ac 1.

For me reviews mean nothing. Every one have different taste and we see it with each ac release, may it be a book, a game and soon, a movie. Look at the game rating threads of this forum, to understand. Everyone give different position and/or different note to the games.

Plus it's the very first ac movie that isn't a short. Aside from the trailers, behind the scene and any other tid bits of info we had the chance to see so far, we know nothing from it. So, from my point of view, there is no chance we can know if we will like it or not. The best we can have is a guess, but it can be true, just like it can be false.

So, I'm gonna watch it as soon as I can . I even already asked to go there to see itt and star wars rogue one for a christmas gift, with a lunch, if possible. ^-^

Do you guys think we'll be seeing a Precursor in this? Or will it be hinting at them in the same vein that AC 1 did? Just one line from a Templar mentioning them, like how Vidic did to Desmond about "gifts from Those Who Came Before."

We already saw an Apple in the pictures about the movie, the artifact which also made its debut in the first game.

So I'm just wondering what your thoughts are.

This really peaked my interest! Because first of all: Jeremy Irons! And second, Alan Rikkin is supposed to be Abstergo's big cheese, right? Rather mysterious fellow; I don't think we've even heard anything about him since the very first game....? So I'm pretty darn curious to see what they're gonna do with the character and if/how it's gonna add to the overarching story of the games.

Yeah I have a big feeling now that the movie is gonna flop because of that line only

It is not a prison Call
You see the editing on her lips! maybe Adam Cooper and his friend weren't such a smart choice I look at there bio and most of there movies have a low score by critics... But we see but my hype is low now

Yeah I have a big feeling now that the movie is gonna flop because of that line only

I haven't seen this scene. What's so bad about the line?

[/B]I haven't seen this scene. What's so bad about the line?

My concern is did he just came out of the Animus? if so she SHOULDN'T say ''it was'' does she want her subject to turn insane?
Also she says that line in other spots on the exact same scene but with a different face SERIOUSLY why are you saying it that many times?
If it was the bleeding effect I can understand but why the face change? is it the editing? I don't know

Oké in those new spots with the same footage Sophies lines are cut of in a bad way you notice them so bad it's cringe worthy

Why does Aguilar throw the knife in the water?

So I heard Michael Fassbender will be on good morning America 13th day of december. Maybe he promote the AC movie and hopefully a new trailer because the same scenes worry we or is it just Fox trying to hide the Spanish dub?

If they make a third trailer please mention the Apple and the Assassin VS Templar war with new scenes and NOT the same trailer if you consider making a third trailer

I notice now... Michael enters the Animus with a shirt and in other scenes in the Animus not... Cough Sophie wants some ASSassin

Discussion:
It looks like there will be at least two visits to the past, but possibly 3-4 or more. The historical "regressions" (tracks 5 and 10) are probably the Animus sessions we have seen clips from in the trailers. I've always envisioned the movie would start in the past, so maybe the "initiation" in track 1 refers to Aguilar's initiation. The "bleeding effect" in track 8 may be just what we see in the trailers, or it may become more involved. like Desmond's visit to Acre in AC2.

Track 17 is called the Ancestors, so I assume this is where we get to meet the ancestors of some of the other Assassins, maybe through the Animus, but more likely through flashbacks or the bleeding effect. I hope it's more than just modern day chit-chat.

If "Seville to London" (track 20) takes place in modern day, it implies the Abstergo complex where Callum is held is in Spain, which I didn't know. I don't know why, but I like when the modern day and historical part take place in the same geographical area.

Track 21 "Assassination" - Is Callum assassinating someone in London? Who? For intense scenes like this, I think it would be cool to have quick cuts between Aguilar and Callum performing the same actions: infiltration, stalking, and the assassination, a different way of showing the bleeding effect. I can't find it now, but there was a video at the time of Revelations that showed Desmond, Altaďr, and Ezio running along a wall centuries apart. That's kind of what I'm talking about.

The last two tracks have intriguing titles. "Take me to the Animus" - does he want to be taken to the Animus, or does he need to be, like Desmond at the end of Brotherhood? Is the Animus back at Abstergo or an Assassin-built one?

"He Says He Needs Me" - Who is "he"? Who is "me"? Is this a post-credits scene? Is this a WTF TWCB moment?

It *was* real, though. What he saw happened, exactly like that. It's important that the promo gets this across in case people think it's just some kind of VR fantasy.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastically over-dramatic about the movie failing on this one line or if you're really serious :)

Over the last decade or so, movie lengths have really started pushing the boundaries on the 2.5 hour range. Recently, it seems like there's a trend of making movies shorter- Suicide Squad, for instance, was uncharacteristically short for a comic book movie.

Personally, I like this trend, as long as storytelling isn't sacrificed merely for the sake of a short movie. Tell the story you want to tell in the time it takes to tell it- don't make an hour forty five minute film into a 3 hour opus, but at the same time don't cut 25 necessary minutes out of a film just to drive sales for the Blu Ray release. Just give us the dang movie the way it should be.

So, yeah, I don't think it's something to worry about quite yet.

Honestly, I am nervous for the film now and do believe it will be bad. For one it's less than 2 hours which is a red flag for a film that is not a comedy or a romance flick. They also keep showing the same shots over and over which makes the world seem small. Also, Fassbender looks like he's about to cry in every publicity he does for the film.

I'm still wondering what made them so confident to move ahead with a trilogy. They probably keep showing same stuff because they don't want to reveal too much as the plot line is most likely already too short. Callum stuck in animus, tracks artifact via animus, learns skills, turns against abstergo w others in the facility, plots escape, escapes...movie ends in cliffhanger showing them grouping with modern assassins

I welcome the change also unlike in BvS which showed tons of climax points in the trailers that ruined it later during the movies. My comment is just based on the opinion that so far the trailers haven't been able to garner me the confidence to be looking forward to a compelling plotline except what all games have done so far. Whether that is because the trailers aren't made well and there really is tons to be discovered during the movie or that there isn't much to show without spoiling because of a short plotline with bare minimum climaxes, I don't know. So I'm going into the movies with my expectations quelled. The movie makers know and understand wayy more than me, so I am sure there are reasons to have already planned a trilogy.

On a side note, does anyone know if there is an embargo on the reviews for the movie?

I am really glad they show some new things but not to much before release and damn I am so freaking excited because tomorrow it is 12 December and some people will see the movie earlier than we I WANT TO KNOW WHAT THEY THINK I'M SO FREAKING JEALOUS! Will there be reviews? I want to know!
Finallt the apple appeared in the trailers and I'm glad this is the last trailer it feels enough.
I like almost everything about the trailer except... The switching between Callum and Aguilar feels not good, while I understand we need to know we are watching a simulation I don't feel anything if I am taken out of the action and also sliding down a rope really?
At 1:25 Callum wants to have some Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo witl Sophie ship confirmed!

It's beyond me as well. I think it's the fault of the editors and the marketing team. They are just clueless about what parts of the movie to show w/o revealing too much (about the plotline, climaxes etc.) yet be able to create a trailer that is capable of attracting the crowd into the theaters. I chose not to watch the previous clip.

But yeah we fans know 100% they escape Abstergo right now not surprising but this makes me wonder what about the second movie? we know they work on it but they really have to work on the fight scenes now with Callum because we can't keep him in the Animus forever and just get him out later and let his friends do his fighting in the MD.
The only reall fight scene he will have in the movie and win is the end fight we see this coming

Those clips don't show anything that wasn't in trailers, though. They really don't reveal or show much, - the amount of information based on watching trailers is the same as watching trailers + those clips. The only benefits are hearing some additional lines to dialogues that were already in the trailer or seeing a little bit of additional action inbetween action shots that were already in the trailer.

Marketing actually doesn't seem to show that much of the movie, it's mostly different little parts of the same scenes. In fact, I would say that the final trailer has more new shots and information than all of the preview clips combined.

from what justin kurzel micheal and maria said, they were only saying stuff about what is new in ac from a movie development perspective, they did not reveal anything that may bring hope for us fans, it was the same when prince of persia was released ... but micheal said there is gonna be modern day story which kind of intrgues me to something new .. hope this movie brings something new to the table

Oops already posted I see.

OK, some things I'm worried about:

1. The editing. I really do hope it's been whittled down for the sake of these clips but considering we now know the movie is less than 2 hours I somehow doubt it...
2. I don't like the way Callum seems to still be Callum while he's in the animus. When he syncs to the animus he should be Aguilar and everything he feels and does should be Aguilar. Why is he hesitant before the leap? Why does Sophia have to tell him to jump?

I sort of don't like Michael Williams anymore - he seems the most uninformed in the bunch. Can't even properly say "Animus", doesn't know Callum's name off the top. His entire input consisted of "you know" and "like", couldn't express what he wanted to say, gave away spoilers about his character!

If Callum is the only person left with the blood to go back to his ancestor an ancestor I remind you who got in contact with a Apple of Eden (I still don't know how Abstergo found that out but he I can understand after reading The Last Descendants again) then why does Callums father appear in the movie?

Warren kept calling Desmond an Assassin, even if he stopped being one since many years before his capture.

It's because the budget is spent on other things such as locations and visual fx. A good writer costs more money although it's telling that the studio would think a good script is low on the list of priorities for making a good film.

Yep, never trust imdb. People can vote before the film is even released.

I know that but in current market 200M (my last figure was incorrect), is pretty huge budget for an action movie like AC (Avatar was 237M, X-Men Apocalypse 178M, Ex Machine 15M etc) to hire a decent screenwriter. If Ex Machina can contest in Oscars for original screenwriting from just 15M budget, I do not see any excuse for this team. They just didn't prioritize the script and though the action will be enough. Well we'll see, for me weak story, weak character development translates to a mediocre movie. I watched Interstellar yesterday, and I sat in awe for both the writing and the effects and it had less budget (165M) than AC. I will put on Transformers to see mindless action. Although in this case most of the action is live shoot so they have that going. Oh well, just few more days and we'll find out.

I actually trust Loomer's opinion more than your average fan who's maybe not as active in the community. We've all heard Loomer in his interviews with the creators, he's not afraid to voice his dislike if there is an aspect that annoys him in the games or transmedia. He has a firm knowledge of the established lore and would probably throw a fit if the movie went against it in an extreme way. I'm not saying I already know whether I'm going to agree or disagree with him on the movie, just that I don't see Loomer as the kind of person who can be so easily bought with wining and dining.

Can't judge the NY Daily News review cause apparently it was posted earlier than needed and now is not available, but the Time review makes me think that there needs to be a site that reviews reviews. Cause that is an absolute crap of a review.

At any rate, I will be actually surprised if there will be a huge amount of positive critic reviews for AC, but after Warcraft I honestly don't care what critics say. I don't know if Warcraft reviews showed any bias against video game adaptations per se (though it did plant that idea in my mind that still lingers), but they clearly had a cultural bias when it comes to judging WarCraft (https://stanislavcostiuc.com/2016/06/12/on-warcraft-movie-critical-reception-and-cultural-heritage/). To be fair, unlike that Time review, the critics who panned Warcraft actually argumented properly why they were panning it, even if I don't agree with them.

Farlander1991
12-19-2016, 10:00 PM
Quoting myself from Reddit post that lists a bunch of reviews, too lazy to retype it in different manner here :p


You know, reading a lot of these reviews reminds me a lot of the situation with Warcraft movie, which I explain in detail in my post here: https://stanislavcostiuc.com/2016/06/12/on-warcraft-movie-critical-reception-and-cultural-heritage/

But the short gist of it is, a lot of critics unfavourably compare Warcraft to The Lord of the Rings, the difference being that The Lord of the Rings was part of their cultural background, while Warcraft was not, and they weren't willing to take a leap of faith into the unknown. The thing is, most of the criticisms applied to Warcraft can be applied to The Fellowship of the Ring as well if you look at Fellowship as a movie with which you have absolutely no prior history to (and I'm saying this as a person who absolutely adores LotR, so there's no hate bias there).

Why I'm saying all this. There is one common thread among all the movie critic reviews when it comes to Assassin's Creed movie that I've noticed. It's the premise. Of Animus, genetic memory, mixing of past and present, and an eternal battle between two groups connecting all that via an ancient McGuffin. The critics aren't willing to accept the premise. It's not that they don't understand it, they do, they show so much in all their reviews. But they don't want to validate it. It's too nonsensical for them, you see, and that's the main point of ridicule. And without accepting the premise, of course nothing will seem to work.

However, the critics are willing to accept premises of supersoldiers fighting super nazis over a space mcguffin, a spider bite giving a person super powers, and a god, green giant, playboy millionaire, supersoldiermutant and spec ops fighting against invading alien army for a fight over a space mcguffin. So, you know. I see an issue of cultural heritage and refusal to accept new things again.

And maybe I won't like the movie, that's not the point. The point is, the video game curse doesn't have anything to do with quality, even though a lot of video game movies weren't even mediocre. The video game curse is about cultural acceptance, and that's just what time will fix.

That's not how RT works. Usually the score tends to go down rather than up. I predict no more than a 20% rating.
Once the written consensus is up it's all over.

I don't think it's a good idea to ascribe reasons to why people have disliked something especially when there's an obvious general consensus out there.
If you read the reviews properly the common complaints are that the film is:

1. Boring.
2. Lacks character development, all the characters are shallow.
3. Good action sequences in the past but not enough of it.

Regarding your point about the premise - from what I gathered it wasn't the premise itself critics had issues with, it was the way it was presented.

I was just talking to Fatal-Feit about this. Why do critics have seemingly no problem accepting that a genetic mutation can give you powers of teleportation or flight but a genetic memory machine is just too preposterous? If their main problem is the whole Animus concept, then of course they're never going to accept the movie. That's why I'm more interested in the opinions of people who have played the games and accept the premise for what it is. How is the movie beyond the preposterous concept upon which the entire franchise is based? That should be the main concern with any fantasy or sci-fi movie.

I don't think it's a good idea to ascribe reasons to why people have disliked something especially when there's an obvious general consensus out there.
If you read the reviews properly the common complaints are that the film is:

1. Boring.
2. Lacks character development, all the characters are shallow.
3. Good action sequences in the past but not enough of it.

Regarding your point about the premise - from what I gathered it wasn't the premise itself critics had issues with, it was the way it was presented.

And another common complaint is that the Apple of Eden is not an actual Apple. Seriously, they mention this a lot.

So, you know. I see an issue of cultural heritage and refusal to accept new things again.

You are right. Some critics are providing opinions based on a recent status quo of the industry. But I don't think that is the case for all of them. I have not watched too many video game adaptations. I have seen both Hitman, and to be honest they are both are atrocious. However, it's not because I'm not able to digest the idea of a genetically enhanced assassin created by a conspiracy ridden shadowy church, but because the way that idea is executed in those adaptations was cringeworthy to me.

Based on the reviews that I've read so far for AC movies, most of them point towards flawed execution of the tenets and the core philosophy of AC. They point towards the dissonance felt when transitioning between the past and the present. Many movies have done that smoothly, but they point out here it does not happen and interrupts the flow. They point towards the melodramatic character portrayal of Callum due to his dialogues which I do not blame Fassbender for, but the screenwriters. They point out the flawed execution of developing the constant struggle between templars and assassins as a convincing premise due to too short screentime given to that plot. But saying the entire culture among critics is what is preventing video game adaptations to become critically successful is kind of far fetched. Even gaming sites like IGN gave it mediocre review and called it "melodramatic and soul less". That to me is an indication of below average execution and presentation of the ideas and not necessarily the ideas themselves.

All those criticisms aside, I'll be making up my own mind when I watch the movie on Wednesday.

Can you please link me to such reviews because all the reviews I have read seem totally level headed and unbiased. One such example:


So far, so good. As a concept, “genetic memory” is ridiculous, but who ever said action-movie plots necessarily have to be realistic? The problem here is in the execution. Namely: Good god, but Assassin’s Creed is dull.

The characters are thinly drawn with inscrutable motivations, and are thus all but impossible to relate to. The key culprits here are Lynch and Cotillard’s Sofia, the Templar scientist (and daughter of Templar head honcho Rikkin, played by a sleepwalking Jeremy Irons) who developed the Animus technology.

Also, from what I gathered about the apple is that the movie doesn't explain or show how exactly it eliminates free will. In Assassin's Creed 1 this was shown when inhabitants of Masyaf are in a trance.

Time (http://time.com/4605625/review-assassins-creed-movie/)
"Aguilar and his cohorts devoted their lives to fighting the Knights Templar—Catholic alert!—a hoity-toity religious military order whose goal was to procure the Apple of Eden, a gizmo with the power to deprive man of free will. (Disappointingly, it’s not even a real apple.)"

AVClub (http://www.avclub.com/review/what-hell-are-michael-fassbender-and-marion-cotill-247652)
" Knights Templar are in a centuries-long pursuit of the Apple Of Eden (a metal doohickey of a MacGuffin that is, confusingly, the thing that got man cast out of Eden, yet is not an actual apple)"

The Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/dec/19/assassins-creed-film-review-michael-fassbender-videogame-marion-cotillard)
"Theological pedants might grumble that the point about the Apple is that it no longer exists because it was eaten. At the very most, it can only exist in a half-munched form, surely?"

This is out of the more reputable easy to remember sources. There are a bunch of others where I've seen complaints about the Apple not being the... real Apple. And yeah, it's not widespread through each and every review, but it happens often enough for me to go 'say wuh?'
