Assassins Creed - 0.5 Stars
This type of rubbish, which is annually pumped into cinemas demeans both creators and audiences.
When Callum Lynch explores the memories of his ancestor Aguilar and gains the skills of a Master Assassin, he discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society.
I love a good action movie, but very few are ever made. This is despicable. It puts phenomenal actors like Jeremy Irons and Charlotte Rampling to waste, and has hardly any plot. Video game movies have never done well critically, but this is really one of the worst. The only reason that it deserves its 1/2 star is that some of the medieval fight sequences are very well choreographed. Beyond that there really isn’t anything to this film.
Overall avoid it at all costs, life is too short.
