So much potential unrealised, disappointing, we were looking forward to this. Thanks to my teenage son I was familiar with the story/plot/idea of the Assassin's Creed games, and we have read a couple... Read moreof the books. There was just so much opportunity to make an awesome film with a great story out of this franchise, but the real fun is in the old, not the tech front story. Gamers or fans may argue, but this film just needed to spend more time with the blades and less in the lab. Interestingly both my son and I were in agreement, this Creed missed the mark; bugger.
