Assassin's Creed


 

It turns out that Hollywood actors really are just like us, in that they also hate video game-to-film adaptations, even if they’re starring in them.

Michael Fassbender, the star of (and a producer on) the Assassin’s Creed movie adaptation, recently criticized the film in an interview, saying that, if he was in the director’s chair, he “would make it more entertaining. That’s really the main note.”

Fassbender, best known as Magneto in the later X-Men movies and as the British guy who gets everyone killed in Inglourious Basterds, explained how he would have made Assassin’s Creed more entertaining, and that’s by trimming all the fat and adjusting the tone of the movie to better fit the concept of a man’s genes letting him experience the memories of an ancient ancestor.

“The feeling of the film, I think it took itself too seriously and I would get to the action a lot quicker,” Fassbender said, adding that, “I think there’s three beginnings of the film, which is a mistake.”

While many people (including Fassbender, apparently) consider the movie a critical failure, with an 18 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it did make over $240 million at the box office worldwide from a $125 million budget, according to Box Office Mojo. That might explain why there are already plans for two more Assassin’s Creed films, even if Ubisoft does decide to completely start from scratch with the next one.

Star of Assassin’s Creed movie hated it as much as you did

Michael Fassbender thought the Assassin's Creed movie needed less (bad) talking and more (bad) action.
