Goofs

The practice of severing the ring finger for assassin initiates was discontinued by Altair, the master of the Brotherhood, sometime after its reformation in 1192. This was referenced in the video game Assassin's Creed 2, occurring decades before the events in the movie. As the movie and its sequels are original stories set within the same universe as the games, removing a finger to use the hidden blade has not been necessary for centuries by the time Aguilar joins the Brotherhood. Ubisoft and the Assassin's Creed franchise team explained that the Spanish branch of the Brotherhood to which Aguilar belongs still severs one finger per initiate to ensure the commitment and loyalty of each initiate to defend both the Brotherhood and the Creed. This is why Aguilar has the ring finger severed on only one hand despite wielding two hidden blades; the severance is no longer about function, but rather about symbolism and dedication. See more »

Critics vs Gamer
22 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm going to come out and say it, the critics are right, but there is a big but here. If you have played this game, you are going to truly enjoy it. The big problem that I think is not going to brake the video game curse is the fact that it isn't possible to cover the whole story in such a short amount of time and appeal to critics and people who haven't played the game and never will while satisfying gamers in a way that won't scare them away from the video game itself. So if I'm talking right now to a gamer, I would say that this movie has it all, but if I'm not, you will probably dislike the movie or simply just enjoy it as a C grade movie that got you entertained for two hours and you'll forget about it in a few more.

Now that's out of the way here is my fan review. The parkour, the animus, the outfits, the scenes and the story was all an amazing representation of Assassin's Creed. It made justice to the game completely. If you are a fan of the games, you'll truly enjoy this film to its fullest potential. Lastly, Fassbender's performance was amazing and the assassin girl was crazy good. "Nothing it's true, everything is permitted." Cons: one eagle flying scene could have been enough and the last shot was cheesy, but other than that I loved this film for the same reason I love the videogames.
