Quite Good
11 October 2020 | by Littleman95See all my reviews

Since I won't spoiler anything I'll be general. At the beginning there will be a sound that do not fit to the movie type. There are a lot of exaggerations, a contradiction, and (imho) a stupid thing that interests Assassin's method nowadays. At least the movie is very well made and the actor (the main character (Michael Fassbender) and the scientist (Marion Cotillard)) are very skilled.
