Assassin's Creed (2016)
Critic Consensus: Assassin's Creed is arguably better made (and certainly better cast) than most video game adaptations; unfortunately, the CGI-fueled end result still is still a joylessly overplotted slog.

Critic Reviews for Assassin's Creed
Although this story of multiple timelines provides some interesting moments, the cryptic, excessive, often extremely muffled dialogue makes the film excruciatingly hard to follow.
I have never seen a group of A-list actors look and act so disinterested.
One is left wracking brains as to why these talented people wasted so much time. It's not even the best videogame adaptation released in the past 12 months. Come back, Angry Birds. All is forgiven.
Films based on video games are often derided as hackwork -- but Assassin's Creed is the most daring film yet from the Australian director Justin Kurze.
Audience Reviews for Assassin's Creed
I have the advantage of multiple Assassin's Creed games under my belt, and even to me it was nonsense. Wastes an INCREDIBLE cast on what will wind up contributing to the seemingly never-ending pile of lacklustre videogame adaptations.
I had huge expectations for this one and yet again the video game to movie doesn't translate. It is a simple case of the right story being created for the film, just make the game with all the plot points. I know as a fan of games I would like to show someone else who doesn't game why it's so awesome. These movies are making it hard to showcase the dynamic game story that eats away hours of my life. This was tedious and boring, the games aren't boring so why the drastic shakeup here?
A cast to die for and a couple of set action pieces do not make a whole movie as this outing well proves, although Cotilliard could melt a glacier with her eyes.
