Goofs

The Assassins enter the Templar gathering by passing through a metal detector without setting it off. Once inside, one Assassin removed a blade from his mouth. The blade should have been detected by the detector regardless if it was hidden inside the Assassin's body; but we see the Assassin point at his belt during safety checks, assuming the guard to believe it was the belt that had the detector to go off.

Good, but not as good as it could've been
7 January 2017 | by roderick_stoutSee all my reviews

As a fan of the game series, my expectations were quite high. I was therefore pleased to see that a lot of the movie can be related back to the games. The story features are similar as well as the historic atmosphere. The fighting scenes are nicely shown, but are a bit to dominant throughout the entire movie. The depth of the story can be better as well.

The actors do a good job, but there isn't much time to really get to know them.

All in all, a movie that did not disappoint me as an Assassins Creed fan, but not the best movie of the year either.
