I really waited a lot of time to see it, mainly because it never attracted me, I never played a chapter of the Ubisoft saga nor ever read a novel based on it, so I preferred to give precedence to other films, despite this was talked a lot during it's promotion and its disappointing box-office performance, probably linked to the negative criticisms that had been affiliated to it.
By now it's been more than a year since its was released in the theaters and the fate of the announced sequel is not yet known, which will most likely never see the light.
To my surprise, however, I must admit that, all in all, this transposition has entertained me a lot, thanks to the excellent choreography that made the action sequences very fun to watch, despite these after a while 'begin to repeat themselves. However, let's say that its main objective, that any Blockbuster or film intended for the great public must set itself and reach, was, in fact, reached.
In addition, the film has a very attractive appearance thanks to the discreet, though not always well contextualized, cinematography and the excellent scenography visibly well cured and realized.
Very good also the soundtrack that supports and helps the rhythm to remain pressing and constant.
Finally, the couple Fassbender-Cotillard, indeed trio if also considered the director Justin Kurzel, works well again, the three had already collaborated in the very good "Macbeth" of 2015.
What does not work in the movie? Well everything else, that is the narrative side of the film. In fact, the proposed screenplay is extremely superficial, poorly structured, trivial, with ideas and solutions already used and abused, the characters are not very incisive, with which it is impossible to tighten any kind of emotional bond that can then push the viewer to wait for their return in another chapter, moreover that the dialogues and twists leave a lot to be desired.
So what to say if not well but certainly not very good for this "Assassin's Creed" from which I expected worse. I will wait for any news on the sequel with little hype and with the only hope that, if confirmed, be treated better from the narrative point of view, compared to this.
