I'm in love with the story of the game for far too long. Read the books... FML, so fricking shitty! But, come on! The movie was supposed to be even more badass than the games! With its amazing cast, how could it possibly went wrong? So, how the fuck we ended up with this pile of shit? Only 115min that seemed like a lifetime of waste. Sorry but not sorry. I was waiting for so long for this movie... I'm crushed.
Zero stars - even by video game movie standards. It truly boggles the mind that the visionary director behind Macbeth and Snowtown helmed this lifeless trash. I understand the paycheque, I understand the call of Hollywood, but what I don't understand is how a talented and aesthetically-driven director was able to put together an entire film without a single satisfying moment or beautiful frame.
Kurzel becomes the latest director to sell his soul to the tentpole machine with this chaotic mess/ video game adaptation. Despite the pedigree of the cast this is a soulless and bombastic effort that does no favour to those involved or for those watching. The 'second digression' is an impressive enough action sequence but there is nothing else here to involve the potential viewer.
A seeming commitment to practical stunts is undone by subpar digital effects and some of the most frenetic editing since "Quantum of Solace." I appreciate a video game adaptation that brings a modicum of seriousness to the genre, but casual viewers will likely be put off by the ludicrous nature of the plot while fans of the series are bound to feel like they're watching one long cutscene without any button prompts.
Kurzel made one of the best movies of 2015 with Macbeth; with Assassin's Creed he's made one of the worst movies of 2016. "I hope you got a lot of money, Kurzel!". "Yeah, how much did your artistic soul go for, Kurtzel?!". "Did you get a big swimming pool, you hack?!". I hope you fucking drown in it!". "Now that you've stalled your career, I hope at least your shiny new sports car runs smoothly, you HACK!".
The main group behind the well acclaimed Macbeth reteams for this brand new video game adaptation but sadly this time they fucked it up
The story is such a messy shit with so less creativity and the whole plot feels so vapid,the action and the characters really havin no stake mostly of the time .It feels petty in this regard given the huge potential showed by the AC franchise all this time.
6/10 just for the visuals!
Fuck me, they actually did it. Ubisoft got it good here with Kurzel: here's the things this movie needed and achieved: 1) A straightforward IP adaptation: this thing cuts a lot of the fat bullshit the series has and gets all its inspiration from the original, first, entry in the series, one of the strongest concept pieces in gaming history (the first one!). It's simple,it's quick, it works - we never [cont.]
