Assassin's Creed


We went to see the Assassin's Creed movie today. It was a 12:30pm showing, so there were only five people in the audience (including us) (and including another couple that started chatting near the end so we missed crucial pieces of dialogue).

I really liked it! My wife really really liked it. The few minor plot holes were acceptable, and the action sequences were excellent and didn't drag on (which some set pieces can). If there's a sequel, I'd certainly be up for watching it. Of course, if only five people want to watch it in a provinvial cinema on a Sunday afternoon, the chances of there being a sequel aren't high. It's set up for one, but so are many movies that never get them.

Maybe if I'd played the actual Assassin's Creed games I would have thought differently. I do have one on a DVD that came free with a mouse or something I bought a while back; maybe I should install it so I can hate the movie like everyone else.
