View Full Version : What did you think of Lineage?

I just finished watching it. http://www.youtube.com/user/as...#p/a/u/0/FLzWYMFQJg8 (http://www.youtube.com/user/assassinscreedUK#p/a/u/0/FLzWYMFQJg8)

My thoughts numerically ordered out.

1) Not saying its a bad thing, but it reminded me more than a little of Sin City and 300.

2) I feel sorry for the random guard Giovanni kills in part 2. Seriously, the guy's just standing there and and he's just murdered for doing his job!

3) Rodrigo Borgia's actor is a little better than I'd thought, which is good since he'll probably be the character here we;'ll see the most ingame. I'm also pleased they remembered to give him a Spanish accent. Still, I didn't really see anything that resembled the historical Rodrigo beyond being just another scheming cardinal.

4) Lorenzo de Medici spends every scene in the same pose. He was quite stately, but he didn't really do anything except react to the plot.

5) The interrogator guy, whom I assume is also a public official of some sort. I don't know if its intentional, but the actor's performance and accent was hilarious in a good way. he reminded me of a sterotypical mafia thug, especially when his made the thug and priest 'offers they could not refuse.'

6) The family... I like how Federico is set up to be the obvious successor. I also liked the mother, but I'm kind of pleased Ezio has a different actor in the game. He was kind of flat here.

7) The conspiracy. Obviously, the Pope knows about it and supports it, but he probably doesn't know he's really aiding a cabal of atheist megalomaniacs out to literally rewrite history and society as we know it instead of your typical Italian family feud.

8) Most importantly, Giovanni's actor pretty much carries the entire film on his back and does so admirably. Its a pity he has to die for the game to start.

Overall, I kind of liked it, in a dorky 'Never win an Emmy' sort of way.

Pretty sure this is being discussed in other threads.

Sorry you had to watch it on youtube

Nope, so far everyone has simply asked WHERE to watch it, not their actual reactions.

Now react!

Please use one of the already created Lineage threads where you can not only see but discuss it.
