Assassin’s Creed

Podicus Wrecks #39 – Assassin’s Creed

In this week’s episode, we’re discussing Assassin’s Creed, games and movie.  That also leads us to a discussion on why we think movie adaptations of video games are frequently not critically and/or financially successful.  Revanche is featured in this week’s “Better Know an X-Man.”

Please let this be good.  Please let this be good.  Please let this be good.  I’m a big fan of the Assassin’s Creed games, and I really, really, REALLY want to believe that maybe, just maybe this will be the video game movie that is good.  I like that they are going with an original story, set during the Spanish Inquisition (wonder if that was expected).  And the Animus looks…interesting.  I like the idea that it is something that appears to put your body actually through what is going on in your mind, rather than just being a tube, or a head piece.
