On the surface, it appeared as if Assassin's Creed would be the first truly great video game movie. With a superb cast and director, the ingredients were all there and Ubisoft's involvement appeared to guarantee this adaptation wouldn't go wrong where others had failed. Now, Michael Fassbender has shared his thoughts on why it simply didn't work and he's surprisingly critical about its many problems.
"I would make it more entertaining, that’s really the main note," the X-Men: Dark Phoenix star said of why audiences failed to connect with the movie. "The feeling of the film, I think it took itself too seriously and I would get to the action a lot quicker. I think there’s three beginnings of the film, which is a mistake." With 18% of Rotten Tomatoes, it's fair to say no one found it that entertaining!
The chances of a sequel ever happening seem slim based on Assassin's Creed's box office performance and when he was asked about returning for a follow-up, the actor said, "we’ll wait and see what Ubisoft are coming up with." Chances are that will be a reboot, though there have been rumblings that the franchise could head to the small screen too. We'll just have to wait and see for now it seems.
