About Assassin's Creed
Assassin's Creed is a game series ripe for movie adaptation. The fascinating premise of entering the past through the genetic memory of your ancestors has the hero Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) spirited back to 15th Century Spain. His mission is to gain the necessary skills and knowledge from the secret society of The Assassins in order to defeat the present-day tyrannical Templar organisation. Despite heart-stopping fight scenes and plenty of inside jokes for the hardcore crowd, somehow Assassin's Creed doesn't quite hit the mark with its confusing and disjointed narrative.
