Assassin's Creed 

 

We purchased Assassin's Creed on DVD for one of our movie nights. There is all kinds of controversy surrounding the Assassin's Creed movie. Like how does a seventeen and older only video game series earn the thirteen and older only rating for a movie? I was all ready to slam Assassin's Creed on that issue alone. Then I noticed something about this movie - there is not all this blood and gore.

If the Assassin's Creed movie can be done without all of the blood and gore, why can't the video games follow that fine example? Inquiring minds want to know. The story line is captivating in this movie that takes 115 minutes to watch. A murderer thinks he is killed. Instead he is in a secret facility where he taps into the memories of his ancestor. All to find the Apple of Eden. Why? Because it is believed to hold the key to free will.

What is it with the entertainment industries attacking the Knights Templar? They are the bad guys in Assassin's Creed. The Assassins are supposedly the good guys. Although the good guys murder quite a few people to keep their secrets safe. I could not find myself rooting for the Assassins against Knights Templar. Maybe that is another reason I have not played the Assassin's Creed video games. I don't want to play the bad guys being redefined as good by radicals on the extreme far left.

The issues families will have with Assassin's Creed is violence, blood, lack of attire, bad language, and plenty of death. There are some amazing stunts in Assassin's Creed. This movie takes parkour to a brand new level. That is one of the best parts about Assassin's Creed. Plenty of things in Assassin's Creed are telegraphed. I could tell just about everything that was going to happen in this film.

I was expecting Assassin's Creed to be a lot worse than it was. Getting memories from our ancestors is an interesting idea. I personally do not buy into it. The bonus content in Assassin's Creed is Take the Pledge Behind the Scenes of Assassin's Creed - Five Part Documentary, Gallery, Conversations with Justin Kurzel, Delete Scenes Conversation with Justin Kerzel & Christopher Tellefsen, Trailers, and more.

Assassin's Creed has some amazing scenery in it. I also noticed this eagle was flying around. There must be some significance to it. Fanboys of Assassin's Creed should be interested in this movie. I am not into this video game series and I found the movie very interesting. I hope the video games tone down the blood like the movie did. Then I might take an interest in the video games.
