Movie Review: #AssassinsCreed Huge Let Down!

Huge let down!

Rama returns.

Assassins Creed Movie has so much potential, it’s got a cool concept, badass fights, exciting chase scenes, even though parkour was so ten years ago, I’m diggin’ the style as well, but halfway through, the story starts to crumble, and it ultimately becomes just as poorly-scripted as any other game-based movies we’ve seen so far. Such a shame,.. I really thought this would be the one to break the long streak.

Michael Fassbender is a death row inmate named Callum Lynch about to be executed when he then wakes up in a facility that, through a revolutionary technology called animus, tries to unlock his genetic memories, to make him be one with his ancestor, Aguilar, a member of a secret assassins society in 15th Century Spain. They have vast knowledge and incredible skills and their mission is to stop the powerful Templar organization from obtaining the Apple of Eden which is said to contain mankind’s origin of free will.

I’m not going to lie to you, there are some cool parts about “Assassin’s Creed.” For one, the look and the tone remind me of Christian Bale’s sleek utopian actioner “Equilibrium.” And whenever Callum (Michael Fassbender) fights as Aguilar, the shots from the old Spain blend with the present day inside the facility, so what you see is this fascinating ghost-like combo, much credit to the VFX team. To be honest, Michael Fassbender, wasn’t the first person I had in mind when the idea of “Assassin’s Creed” live action movie came to surface, but he proves himself quite capable and competent, he’s got the moves, the jumps, the stealths and the stances down pat. Fassbender is committed to the material even if the material doesn’t meet him there, such is the case with “Assassin’s Creed.”

Conceptually, this is a promising film. I’m willing to even put aside the ridiculous McGuffin that is Apple of Eden, but just halfway through, it’s as if the story doesn’t know how to wrap itself up nicely. It’s disjointed and all over the place. In addition to that, the dialogue is just unbearable, it’s torturous to see Oscar winners like Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Irons forced to say their lines. A junior high-schooler could’ve written a better serious conversation between two adults. A movie shouldn’t exist just because it can, and “Assassin’s Creed” is yet another evidence that riding on concept alone just doesn’t cut it.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
