It is not hard to review the new trailer for Assassin’s Creed starring Michael Fassbender at the helm. Michael’s character is layman at first and stark mad the next.
Justin Kurzel’s Assassin’s Creed is aberrant from the rest of the big-screen releases this year. It incorporates the popular namesake game series and makes it enthralling at the same time. The movie has Michael Fassbender playing the protagonist and he is the producer too. Michael’s co-star from Macbeth, Marion Cotillard, will have a prominent role in the action adventure film.
GameSpot reports the second trailer for the Assassin’s Creed and calls it a “non-stop action.” Non-stop action is true for the most part, but it is equally dark. To clarify further, dark has nothing to do with Marion’s presence, of course. It has to do with the protagonist’s agony and his inability to get in terms with his life’s watershed moment.
Additionally, Jeremy Irons’ character’s voice is reassuring when he says that the protagonist is destined for greater things. While part of it might be true, that still does not inspire the skeptical Michael’s character. He is then made to go through the “animus,” which gives his ancestral memories back. He takes it from there.
Once the character learns his roots and his potential, he makes it his forte. The trailer then drifts to action sequences that are jaw-dropping to say the least. Assassin’s Creed comes to life with Michael’s Callum Lynch going medieval on the Knights Templars. The Templars, however, are not going down without a fight obviously.
A while ago, the director spoke about the use of Spanish language in the Assassin’s Creed to give it an authentic pristine touch. Although the trailer does not sport much of Spanish, the movie will have its fair share nevertheless. On the other hand, Marion is at her usual best and her character has an uncanny vibes about it.
Assassin’s Creed has an action that is second to none. Axes, crossbows, arrows, torches and daggers are the bread-and-butter of the movie. The protagonist does a lot of jumping though. From plunging into action from atop buildings, going roof to roof, the movie has it all. Name it and Assassin’s Creed has it.
Furthermore, the movie stars Brendan Gleeson and Michael Kenneth Williams in prominent roles too. Assassin’s Creed opens on Dec. 21, 2016. Watch the trailer below.
