Worst film of the year

Purging violence by using a whole lot of violence? The story itself makes no sense and add to that characters you don't care about, scenes upon scenes of boring dialogue and an overall darkness to the film as a whole, Assassin's Creed is easily the worst film of this whole year. That one parkour scene was pretty dope though.

It's got classier stars, but it's really the same old sludge.

Valiant, but flawed. Some of the set-pieces are superb, but there isn’t enough meat on the bones to turn this into a classic.

Takes itself too seriously – but manages to serve up a convincing enough alternate reality.

Assassin’s Creed is leaps and bounds ahead of kitchen-sink-hurling flapdoodle like X-Men Apocalypse – it’s only the second-worst Fassbender star vehicle of 2016...

For an ostensible action movie, the cast spends an awful lot of time standing around and looking lost. I can only guess that they were following their director's lead.

It’s rare to see a film quite so lacking in animus. It exists only to gouge money out of gamers. They might well want to stick to the game.

...an exercise in joyless frowning and desperately unconvincing drama.

Often confusing and far too po-faced, Kurzel’s stabby period piece is redeemed by its sumptuous vistas and top-notch fight work.
