Critics 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.

Confusing, boring, violent video game-based movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Assassin's Creed is a fantasy action movie based on the popular video game series. As in the games, the main issue here is violence -- although the movie is far less brutally gory than the games. Still, there are several battles with knives, slicing, and stabbing, bows and arrows, and some dead bodies, including a mother, who's found by her son. The same boy performs a dangerous stunt on his bike and crashes. Capital punishment is depicted, and a man grabs a woman roughly by the neck. Language is infrequent but includes uses of "f--k" and "s--t." The main male character (Michael Fassbender) is shirtless for about half the movie, and there are references to a "pimp" and to "drug addicts." Fans of the game may enjoy the movie, but otherwise, it's a confusing, humorless, boring mess.
