Francamente una roba così brutta non me l'aspettavo nemmeno nella peggiore delle ipotesi. Sembra un videogioco brutto, scritto male (ci saranno dieci dialoghi in tutto il film e sono raccapriccianti), mortalmente noioso, e girato pure in modo vergognoso con un'estetica che si mangia del tutto la leggibilità delle scene di combattimento. Perfino i capitoli meno riusciti del gioco erano più interessanti di 'sto film.
I was so happy when I first heard of AC finally being made into a movie, but now I'm almost heart broken. So much to draw from the games and books, yet they came up with literally nothing. I did have high expectations due the time I spent on the games, but even so, I believe this movie is bullshit even for those unfamiliar with the story.
Literally anything is possible with the story premise of histories brutal oppressive hierarchies laboring in the enterprise of enslaving populations being fought by an anarchic proto-revolutionary sect where their struggle is linked to the present day. Could have done almost anything with that and they aimed for some family drama that is incapable of holding or forming a film together.
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.
This film fails in every way, but it is perhaps more obvious in its total lack of any argumental development. No likable characters, no development for any of them, lots of silly action movie choreographies and a very notable lack of aesthetic joy. What's the use for all the millions invested on CGI crap if you have zero story whatsoever?
