When Cal is in the Animus towards the end of the movie, Sofia asks where he is. The lab technician replies that it looks like a military port and adds "Cádiz, Palos de la Frontera". Palos de la Frontera is in Huelva (also in Andalusia), not in Cádiz. See more »

Don't listen to the haters/critics!
22 December 2016 | by Mitch SierraSee all my reviews

Following a somewhat parallel story to the original game, I do wish they would've stuck with original characters. Despite that, the film remains a fun and intriguing watch. The change of the Animus from a bed-like system to the VR style arm was something I originally disliked, but that change ends up playing well into the film visually and aids in parts of the story. The action scenes are well choreographed and exciting, countered with what may be a few too many close up facial expressions and dialogue that might easily confuse someone less familiar with the base plot of the franchise. As far as movie adaptations of video games, this is a far better rendition than many other attempts. As a standalone film it needs some work. But I know they intended to produce a trilogy so I'd like to believe the opportunity to release sequels will give the audience more of what they're looking for, while this movie may have been a bit too much set up rather than development. Personally I generously offer it 7/10, and would recommend seeing it. I hope it is successful enough for them to finish the intended trilogy.
