Assassin's Creed : This movie will get better with time

This movie will get better with time

I went to see Assassin's Creed and definitely didn't find it to be a disaster as most critics are saying. I've played most of the AC games and this movie does some nice things to honor the feel of those games (the music, some of the overhead shots, a few of the action scenes, the whole mysterious feel). Of course, I admit it got saddled with a mediocre story and not much dialogue for the actors to work with (except maybe Marion Cotillard), but I do think many of its elements land in the right places.

I've noticed a trend in film audiences, and it's that, with time, people start to take movies less seriously and are more able to omit the flaws a movie has to concentrate on its strengths. I do think it'll happen to this movie in the form of a cult following of sorts.

Thoughts?

No. Its just bad

Re: This movie will get better with time

A good movie if you only want action scenes and not a deeply message about life, friendship and love.

I played the games and I liked this movie.

deeply message about life, friendship and love

I doubt that one expects this from action films. Yet deep messages never hurt, Rogue One had them, even Warcraft managed to squeeze in some.

But it has a deeply message about violence and control.

Loved it! The subtle homages to the games were appreciated by this fan. And i agree, once the whingers have had their say, this movie will move into a favourable - and lasting - light.

Re: This movie will get better with time

Bad editing will never get better with time. Cinematic illiteracy is plaguing the movie going audience.

Re: This movie will get better with time

There is no such thing. Only snobs and normal movie audiences. Art is subjective, if an artist can grab a toilet and call it art why do all movies need to be oscar worthy or whatever.

Re: This movie will get better with time

Art is subjective, but good craft isn't. Sorry, there is good film making craft and rubbish.

Sure, you can make a kitchen sink masterpiece, and shortcomings can be over come or even part of genre, but if you are just a bad filmmaker working in a low brow genre there is no subjectivity. There is strong craft, and adhesion to formula, and there is mess.

I love this comment. Might copy it because its so good

Re: This movie will get better with time

I agree. Hollywood likes to dump on non-Hollywood movies (which this is), but word of mouth will spread. I'm sure there will still be plenty of people who don't like it, but the number of people- gamers and non gamers alike- I've talked to who did like or love it suggest otherwise. Granted, my personal experience guaranties nothing, but people will realize it's nowhere near the dumpster fire the critics made it out to be.

Re: This movie will get better with time

Assassin's Creed is the epitome of a big-budget dumb Hollywood wanna-be Blockbuster. Stop pretending this is some Art House film. It's another Bad video game movie that's underperforming at the box office

Re: This movie will get better with time

No it isn't. It isn't even made by a Hollywood filmmaker. The actors are all European. And most producers are French. It's not a Hollywood movie, and it's not dumb. It's just people doesn't understand it.

Re: This movie will get better with time

I thought as a mindless action film it works very well and Fassbender and Cotillard pick up the pieces where the screenplay drops them. I was surprised the reviews were as bad as they were.

Re: This movie will get better with time

Definetely. That happened with Transcendence, another sci-fi film people just didn't get the time it was released, but now, there are far more positive ratings and reviews coming for this film.

It's not a bad film at all. Some people just didn't understand it.

Re: This movie will get better with time

You're essentially saying that people's standards and expectations are going down so we'll all be happier with schlock as time goes by.

I find that terribly sad.

Fortunately, history teaches that during bad political climates, the quality of entertainment goes up. People may be getting generally stupider, but not all of us. I still have hope for the entertainment industry. This film won't get "better" (what a bizarre idea, anyway), it will merely be forgotten.
