Trivia

Director Justin Kurzel didn't want to show Assassins as heroes and Templar as villains, or the opposite, because both ideologies can't be clearly called right or wrong and both of them can be corrupted, they can go to extremes: anarchy for Assassins and control for Templars. See more »

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 »

Disappointed
7 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

So the new year has kicked off and many were hyped to see the video game turned movie.

Let me just say save your money this flat movie is designed to get the gamers' to the movies and then be bored for the entire time.

Save your money for something else that won't have you checking for the exits within 30 minutes and kicking yourself at 50 minutes for not running to the nearest exit.

The actors and director have done well with a script that should have been better and is more about trying to set up a franchise rather than providing the movie goers with a action packed movie.
