Can 'Assassin's Creed' Synchronize Video Games And Movies?
Michael Fassbender is taking on a big challenge: making a video game movie that doesn't suck.By Ben Lawson | August 27, 2015
Movies based on video games are pretty much always terrible. So you would be forgiven if you greeted the first glimpse of Michael Fassbender in "Assassin's Creed" with indifference.
On Thursday, Yahoo gave us the first details about the new character created for the movie, Callum Lynch: "Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain."
No surprises there. Aside from the specifics, that's pretty much a vague outline of every "Assassin's Creed" game.
