With a Redesigned Animus and Iconic Leap of Faith Jumps, Assassin's Creed Parkours into the Reality with Sly Ease

Assassin’s Creed is the last blockbuster movie of the year and surely it ends with the much-needed bang. Unlike critics slamming the movie as disgusting and disgraceful, I am completely in love with the action sequences and the bouncy music score of the movie. Most people forget that it’s a video game movie hence you can’t expect a Macbeth. You can’t get everything; critics mainly look for every element like the portrayal of human relationships, the development of plot and the speed of the movie, the cinematography and what not but in reality Assassin’s Creed easily qualifies to become one of the best video game movies of the decade. For god’s sake, you can’t demand the writers and the director of the movie to not focus on the background story. The movie not only keeps you on the edge of your seat but also impresses you with its camera angles.

Directed by Justin Kurzel, the movie tells an exciting original story which took place during the Spanish Inquisition. Assassin’s Creed in simple words is a brilliant geek movie that needs to be watched with utter seriousness. You have to listen to each word carefully to understand what’s going on in the movie. The amalgamation of mythology and modern-day science is highlighted with panache and Assassin’s Creed undoubtedly makes it look suave.

The protagonist Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch and Aguilar de Nerha did a fantastic job throughout the movie. From fighting like a true Assassin to acting like a present-day criminal, he surely makes a solid impact on the viewers. Marion Cotillard as Sophia Rikkin, as usual, was simply subtle and looked brilliant. Jeremy Irons as Alan Rikkin, the futurist CEO of Abstergo Industries was portrayed brilliantly. He looked manipulative throughout the whole movie.  From a completely redesigned Animus (virtual reality time machine) to the iconic Leap of Faith jump, the movie showcases all the elements of the video game with feline ease. If you talk about breaking the curse, Assassin’s Creed surely succeeds in making a smooth transition from console to the cinema. With an original story, first-class actors, sleek action sequences, mind-blowing cinematography and a fascinating legacy, this movie won’t disappoint to enthrall you.
