Michael Fassbender compares Assassin's Creed movie with The Matrix

Michael Fassbender says he 'always thought about The Matrix' when approaching Assassin's Creed movie

When The Matrix came out in 1999, it was totally fresh - with a unique take on Hollywood, and it birthed the start of Bullet Time, and so much more - it became one my favorite movies of all time. So when a stale franchise like Assassin's Creed gets made into a movie, and its star, Michael Fassbender, comes out comparing it to the Keanu Reeves hit (let's forget about the sequels) - it has my attention, and not in a good way.

Well, Assassin's Creed has wrapped principal photography, and while speaking with Empire, Fassbender compared Assassin's Creed to The Matrix. Yeah, he went there, and said: "I've always thought about The Matrix when we've approached this. This idea of DNA memory elevates it from a basic fantasy genre [piece], because you have something an audience can actually believe in. Then the journey becomes so much more elevated, because you're on board in a different way".

I don't know how you compare the 15th century to The Matrix, which is a world within a world - in a computer program, controlled by AI, with people learning Kung Fu and Jujitsu from a computer that can probably still run Assassin's Creed at more than 24FPS. Ugh.

Anyway, what do you all think about this?
