TV & FILM

Michael Fassbender is a really good actor but that doesn't mean he hasn't been in some bad movies. Take that steaming sci-fi turd Prometheus, for example. What I mean to say is that even though a movie has good actors doesn't mean it will be good. Assassin's Creed's biggest hurdle is trying to overcome something no other movie based on a video game has ever done: be good. Although I wholeheartedly believe in this law of cinema, I have to admit that the trailer for the movie looks pretty effing badass. Then again, it looks exactly like the game and the game was pretty amazing. Fassbender stars as Callum Lynch, an executed criminal who is brought back to re-experience the exploits of his ancestor Aguilar during the Spanish Inquisition days. His ancestor was an assassin, hence the name, and he has all kinds of wacky adventures.
I'm not saying that it's impossible to make a good video game movie, anything is POSSIBLE. All I'm saying is that it's never happened before. But I'm willing to give this one a shot. I had ancestors in Spain back in the time of the Spanish Inquistion but I doubt they were assassins. They were probably goat rapists or something.
