Video game properties have always had a tough time translating to the big screen so there was a lot of speculation as to how this movie would turn out. The idea seems perfect for the type of franchise property that could go on for at least a few films although, based on the end result, I'm not sure if the studio will be willing to go any farther than this first installment. From what I understand, this is a project that Michael Fassbender has been wanting to produce and star in for a long time and he put a lot of effort into getting it done. I feel like all the right pieces were in place for a great movie, but for some reason, the end result just wasn't very interesting.
Assassin's Creed should and could have been much better than it was. There isn't really anything wrong with it, it's just not interesting or memorable at all.
