Assassins Creed 2016

Review of Assassins Creed 2016

What an amazing movie. I was not expecting such a good level of this movie. The film is directed by Justin Kurzel, written by Michael Lesslie, Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, and stars Michael Fassbender (who also produced), Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Charlotte Rampling and Michael K. Williams. We are all well aware of the name Assassins Creed. We have played so many games of this title. Assassins Creed games are no doubt amazing. But this movie also packs a solid punch. In this movie, we get to know the story behind the amazing Assassins Creed games. The movie’s graphics quality is very good. Actors performed very good. Let’s moves towards the story of movie. 
In the beginning, we see few men wearing robes and hoodies style clothes. They are speaking their ancient language. This is the era of 1400’s. They are talking about apple of Eden. They are the Assassins Creed brotherhood. They must protect the apple of Eden from falling into the hands of the temple. Aguilar de Nerha swears to protect the prince of Sultan who possess the apple. In the 1980’s, we see a boy riding his bicycle. He tries to jump on a trailer on his bike but fails to do so. He returns home and sees his dad with a blade and his mother is dead holding a necklace. We see bunch of black cars coming towards the house. His father asks the boy to run and live in the shadows. 
After 30 years, we see the boy who is now grown up and his name is Callum. He is charged with murder and sentenced to death. But he somehow wakes up in a secret lab facility. Sofia who is a scientist is standing next to him. He starts to get up and walks toward the room where he finds more people like him. He is about to jump off a window but Sofia convince him to stay and co-operate. Sofia’s father named Alan forcefully makes the Callum to go to the machine and relives the memories of Assassin named Aguilar de Nerha. So he is attached to a machine and we go back to 1400’s where we relive life of Aguilar de Nerha in the movie. Apple of Eden is basically a metal ball which contains the genetic information about the free will. Templars want it for themselves so that they can control the will of people. In the present, Alan is also searching for the apple by making Callum relives the memories of Aguilar de Nerha because he was the last person to know its location.
Aguilar de Nerha duty is to protect the prince from Templars but he fails. All the actions that Aguilar de Nerha do, Callum also do it with the help of machine. Callum returns from his memories and back to his room. He now sees Aguilar de Nerha with his open eyes who is attacking him. He is hallucinating. Sofia comes and tells him that these are just side effects. There are other like Callum in the facility serving different purpose to find the apple. Callum goes back to machine and again relives the life of assassin. Aguilar de Nerha along with one female assassin is captured and will be burned alive. Their master is also captured and burned. Aguilar de Nerha and his friend escapes in a fight but their master dies. 
The prince is captured and Templars exchange prince for apple. Sultan gives them apple. Aguilar de Nerha and his friend attacks the scene and secure the apple but his friend gets killed. Aguilar de Nerha gives the apple to a sailor and asks him to take it to his grave. From there Sofia finds the location of apple. Meanwhile, other assassins attack the facility and kills the guards. Sofia and her father escapes in a helicopter. They find the apple and holds a ceremony in a temple. So it turns out Sofia and her father are Templars. But Sofia had no clue about this. Callum arrives and kills Alan and a fight happens. Callum with other assassins attacks the temple and manages to escape with the apple. In the end, we see three assassins standing on the roof of a building and movie ends. This was not the greatest movie but it was a good movie. I had fun watching it.
