Movies In Focus can’t shake the feeling that Michael Fassbender is squandering his talent making Assassin’s Creed. Videogame adaptations are a cinematic no-no and they never make bank or score with the critics (see the recent Warcraft). Maybe this will be different.
Franchise movies are a necessity in this day and age, but Fassbender already has X-Men up his sleeve and he really should hold out for a shot at James Bond (do you hear that Barbara Brocolli?).
I still have no real grasp of what this film about – and that worries me.
Assassin’s Creed opens in December 2016.
