Live-action Assassin’s Creed: They couldn’t find a koala to play with?

Assassin’s Creed has been a debacle for days now. Between the less-than-stellar response and the childish vagina worship surrounding its producer, one gets the feeling that Ubisoft would rather just forget about the game and move on to creating Splinter Cell: Splinter with a Vengeance.

Remember a week ago, though? Everything was roses and sunshine in the Ubisoft camp and Assassin’s Creed was the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children. That, of course, was the mindset the above boys had when they created this live-action rendition of the Creed trailer, so it’s not fair judging them now that the entire house of cards has blown into the fire.

A reaction to the video? The parkour is somewhat impressive, but the whole thing proves how utterly ridiculous certain actions look without the addition of CGI film filters and artistic slow-motion. Overall, I give it an 8. I wouldn’t necessarily buy it, but I think it would serve as a quality rental.
