When I say old, I mean in the past. Fassbender doesn’t care about what ages he kills.
I played, I think the second game in the Assassin’s Creed series, and it was fun! I knew nothing of the story, but your mind gets sucked back in history to one of your ancestors who climbed buildings, hung out with Leonardo DaVinci, and murdered a lot of people. Usually with hidden knife things that pop out from under your sleeves.
There’s a political story buried somewhere in there, but all I remember is being stealthy and scaling buildings and I was friends with a hawk. Also, assassins are extremely adept at parkour. Now there’s a movie about the game, and there are some scenes that are a carbon copy from the source material, which at least keep the gamers happy.
You actually can just dive off of the top of a cathedral. Not sure how one survives something like that in real life, but in the game, if you land in a pile of hay you walk away pretty much unscathed. That’s some powerful straw.
Fassbender will be joined by his MACBETH cohort, Marion Cotillard, as well as Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael K. Williams. You can see it in theatres December 21, 2016.
