Assassin’s Creed Movie Trailer/Thoughts (Video)
The first official trailer for the new Assassin’s Creed movie has been released starring Michael Fassbender as the main protagonist Callum Lynch. I have to say that I have mixed feelings about this movie and what we see in this trailer. Now I’ve only really played the first two games out of the series so I am by no means an expert when it comes to this franchise. I know that there are a lot of die hard fans of the Assassin’s Creed series out there so please take what I say with a grain of salt.
Description taken from IMDB page; When Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) 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. Honestly I was really underwhelmed with this trailer. Again, I’m not a huge Assassin’s Creed fan but I just feel like this has a very Prince of Persia feel to it. It didn’t seem that exciting and I think they are going to have a hard time transitioning from past to present.
The action scenes were a little less exciting that I was hoping for and honestly Michael Fassbender doesn’t look as cool as I thought he would. From what I remember the Animus looks completely different which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but not quit as cool or interesting as it was in the game. I know only time will tell with this movie but lets be honest here, movies based on video games have a pretty terrible track record. Hopefully I am wrong with this one but the trailer just didn’t do it for me.
Anyway, that’s all for my thoughts on the Assassin’s Creed trailer but be sure to check it out for yourself and let me know what you think Nerd Nation.
