Unless This New Clip From ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Has Been Edited to Hell, It’s Not Looking Good

Last night at The Game Awards 2016, a new extended clip from the upcoming video game-to-film adaptation of Assassin’s Creed was released. The footage, dubbed the “Carriage Chase”, is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Callum has to chase down a couple of carriages on horseback in order to save a boy who is held in a cage on one of them. While it looks fine enough in terms of its cinematography, there are certain actions taken that simply make no sense.

For example, why does one of the carriages overturn in a near explosive manner? Yes, it hits a rock and the wheel shatters but that’s not enough to make the carriage act like it’s hit a damn landmine! Or how about when Callum is about to pull the boy out of the cage as they approach a cliff and his partner, who is hanging onto the yoke that holds the horses together, yanks out the pin that connects the carriage? The horses were veering away from the impending cliff, so the carriage would’ve gone with them. Unless there is something dangerous on that carriage, which isn’t shown, that was, as far as I’m concerned, an active attempt on Callum’s life, not to mention the boy’s.

Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.

Directed by Justin Jurzel, Assassin’s Creed stars the aforementioned Fassbender along with Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael K. Williams. It comes out December 21st.
