    For me, trying to make the Assassin’s Creed series into a movie was going to be complicated. The story is thick, and it’s hard to get the general public who do not play video games wrapped into the story. What this movie essentially did was what Ubisoft, and it’s developers did for the first game. I will now title this plot the Desmond Miles plot; this plot is essentially what you have described; using the main character as a representation of the audience, and helps the audience ask the questions that are needed to be asked. The character that knows nothing about the story of the hidden wars between the two entities and at first doesn’t care about either groups agendas, but then he begins to delve to deep into the Assassin lineage, the emotional appeal of his ancestor takes over, and now he feels he needs to stand up against abstergo in the name of the assassin’s . I will admit, I haven’t watched the movie, but I’m guessing that the need for the Desmond Miles plot is important to help the audience get up to speed with the plot of the game series. Maybe a sequel will begin to delve deeper into the story, but who knows!
