Assassin's Creed is the first game to movie adaptation that features a TRULY complex/thought provoking plot. The premise is even more complex than Inception. I think it will be good.

Yep I agree and I think they could also make at the very least a good popcorn flick with splinter cell.

Honestly, I can't see it failing like the others at all. The story is absolutely perfect for a movie adaption. They can make a movie that is even better than the games with their premise. It doesn't hurt that the lead actor is actually a great fit. But after so many disappointments, it is best to continue to think that directors will always find a way to waste great concepts.

They already started with that horrid prince of persia movie who casts Jake Gyllenhal for anything besides gay cowboys.

That was Disney, from what I understand Ubisoft has their own production company now, so they'll have more say in the production of the films.

Prince of Persia wasn't half bad, even when Disney took certain liberties with the plot & story. Or maybe it was used as a guideline and not an end to all. Who knows?
