Assassin's Creed 
"Assassin's Creed" by Yojimbo
2.5/4 stars

A convicted murderer awakens from the execution chamber to find himself subject to an experimental procedure that enables him to relive the memories of his ancestors.

Assassin's Creed follows the formula of the videogame franchise it is based upon to the letter. It's an action adventure set in a beautifully realized Medieval past, punctuated by a modern day setting characterized by clunky exposition, sci-fi mumbo jumbo and poor dialogue in general. Michael Fassbender actually makes quite a strong and suitably intense protagonist and the scenes set in the past are atmospherically shot, nicely choreographed and the production design throughout is impressive. When the two plot threads intertwine for the final act it initially works quite well, but the plot suddenly shudders to a halt with an ending that is far more interested in setting up a sequel than resolving the story in any meaningful way.

Assassin's Creed is actually one of the best videogame adaptations yet made, but that is purely by the very low standards previously set by the genre. By any other standard it is a visually impressive action movie with some good ideas but sorely let down by its uninspiring script.
