A Review of Assassin’s Creed III (The Movie)

This is the review of the third (numbered) installment of the YouTube movie series for Assassin’s Creed.

ac3My favorite line comes from the mentor to the assassin in this one: “I’m not even going to try to pronounce (his name).”  The main character’s actual name is Ratonhnhaké:ton, though he is also called Connor… which is how I’m going to identify him.

Connor is the result of a swerve at the beginning, which is a twist in the story, and once we see Connor is the one we are going to be following.  He starts out in much the same way Ezio did, not really knowing what he needed to know but we get to see the progress happen a little more quickly than we did with Ezio.  The other thing is the deep connection to the Revolutionary War, which in my opinion, was a great backdrop to the action going on.

The story was enthralling enough to keep me watching right through in one sitting, which is the first time I’ve done that with these AC movies… and this is the final bell for Desmond, but I won’t tell you why that is… you should check the movie out to find out why!

I give this one five out of five stars AND I think this is the best one so far…
