In the opening sequences exploring Cal's background before being taken to Abstergo - Madrid, (time code- 8.34, text reads "30 years later") the text that reads "Huntsville Department of Criminal Justice, Texas USA" is incorrect.

The Prison facility, most likely a representation of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Huntsville Maximum Security Penitentiary (a.k.a.

No man, no, come on Fassbender, not from you. I didn't see this coming at all. And I am disappointed with Marion too. Why would she do such a movie? Bad script with bad direction, i mean the audience is much smarter than some silly fights or stunts and even the visual effects weren't good too. There is not a single moment or a thread of the story that you might wanna hold onto so, basically a four-year kid wrote the script. A disaster, a nightmare, a tragedy; basically a glimpse of 2017.
