Is the Next Big Trend Videogame Movies? Watch Assassins Creed Full Movie 123Movies
Videogame movies have gotten a bad rap over the years, with the genre producing unsalvageable schlock (like Super Mario the Movie or Alone in the Dark) or “so bad it’s good” adaptations (like the Resident Evil series starring Milla Jovovich or the Street Fighter Movie). You also have middling or mediocre movies like Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider. The Assassin’s Creed full movie (which you can watch at assassins creed full movie 123movies) is somewhere between Tomb Raider acceptable in terms of quality or something beyond that. If you want to watch a straight out videogame adaptation to succeed, then you should probably support the Assassin’s Creed DVD release or go to 123movies and watch it there since it’s yet another arm of digital distribution for the movie.
What Is Assassin’s Creed All About?
- Assassin’s Creed the game is about time traveling through DNA and the minds of your ancestors. You’re then tasked to reenact historically accurate (or as close to accurate as possible) assassinations during significant times in human history. Many a student has aced their history tests after playing through Assassin’s Creed thanks to the historical accuracy of some of its plot elements.
- Assassin’s Creed the movie has death row inmate Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) become the time traveler who ends up inside the mind of his assassin ancestor (Aguilar de Nerha) as part of the machinations of The Knights Templar. The movie is set in the same timeline and universe as Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery—around the time Granada fell and the Spanish Inquisition took over. Both Aguilar (Fassbender) and Ezio Auditore wage war against the Spanish Inquisition.
- With that said, the film deviates slightly from the source material by making the “Animus” plot device more of a crane-based indoor simulator with holograms. This is because the filmmakers didn’t want Fassbender to lie or sit down throughout his Animus experience like in the games, thus the new animus was developed in order to allow for a more cinematic rendering of Callum’s time travel shenanigans when all is said and done.
