Saw the Assassin's Creed movie yesterday. I found it a mixed bag. The parts that were set in the past were absolutely fantastic but the modern day parts really dragged. And most of the movie was the modern parts.

Call me shallow but it really needed more people in funny cloaks jumping off buildings and stabbing dudes and less close ups of Michael Fassbender's teary-eyed face.

The costumes were gorgeous though. Well the one's in the past were...

Possible tangent for a later date, but I'm finding nearly all movies now days have a theme of order = bad, freedom = good. Which is fine enough in theory, but I'd like a bit of creativity please. I don't think we've had an anarchist villian since Heath!Joker in The Dark Knight.

The only recent movie who I feel actually did a good job of exploring creeping fascism was Captain Americ: The Winter Soldier and that was fascism from within. Evil-outsider-who-want-to-take-away-our-freedom-for-the-sake-of-peace honestly rings a little hollow.
