    Assassin's Creed

    ★½

    Genuinely one the worst films I Have seen in a long time, it's everything I hate in a film bought to life.

    The biggest problem I had with Rogue One was the amount of times I was taken out of the film and my immersion/enjoyment was halted. A certain element of the CGI in the film was incredibly noticeable and while I commend them for taking a risk with it I feel there could have been ways around it…
