Editorial Reviews

ASSASSIN’S CREED: LINEAGE is the first chapter of Ezio Auditore’s story and the prequel movie to Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations video games. ASSASSIN’S CREED: LINEAGE reveals the machinations of 15th-century Italy through the actions of Ezio's father, Giovanni.

When the Duke of Milan is brutally murdered, the Assassin Giovanni Auditore is dispatched to investigate. What he uncovers implicates Italy's most powerful families reaching all the way back to the Vatican itself. As Giovanni draws closer to the truth, he becomes hunted himself. He must expose the conspirators before he joins their ever-growing list of victims.

To take advantage of the release of the eagerly anticipated videogame "AC: Revelations," a brilliant and synergistic marketing team has also readied the DVD debut of "AC: Lineage" for the same date. It's a sound proposition, of course, to push for sales dollars--but, to my estimation, "Lineage" plays more as a game supplement than as a fully realized product of its own. If someone had put this disc in a deluxe version of the game, I would tell you what a great extra it would have been. However, sold on its own, it really isn't a satisfying purchase. Want a movie based off of the AC legend? It seems like it would be easy enough to do. But this just seems like an extended cut-scene sequence that you might find in a game that, although beautifully rendered, lacks dramatic impact.

Here's what's included:

AC: Lineage (Approximately 33 minutes): This short film introduces antihero Ezio Auditore and is set directly preceding the timeline established in the story that continued in the game ACII. It is a terrifically sculpted mix of live actors and computer generated technology. The images are absolutely stunning (especially in Blu-ray), and it is easy to admire the artistry that went into the piece. I want to say how much I loved it! But, as I said, it is like an extended sequence from the game. From a film, I might have expected a little more character depth and motivation and drama. It is a missed opportunity to expand the AC world to the next realm of entertainment and find a broader audience instead of just catering to those already invested in the AC experience. Love the technical aspects of the movie, but it fell short of making a compelling stand alone product.

Let me preface my review by first explaining why I have given it 4 stars instead of what probably should be 3 or 3.5. If the price were set the same as any other retail Blu-ray, it would be insulting and a waste of time for those who aren't into the Assassin's Creed universe but it's not - it's the exact right amount for how much footage there is on the disc.

If you're not a fan already, you probably don't care about all of the developer diaries and trailers for the first two games. Maybe they might spark some interest for those who are curious but it's really just all there to appease the fanbase. The real meat of this disc is the free-to-view-online Lineage motion picture (and I'm pretty sure you can find the making of online as well). If you just want to watch that online for free, by all means, visit the company's Facebook or Youtube pages but if you're a collector of having decent moviemaking examples on DVD/BD, it's not a bad thing to have in your library. The movie itself is short but good, telling a backstory that takes place just before the 2nd game that only adds to the series without spoiling anything.

I admit I'm biased and I mostly enjoyed the movie because I love the video game series it's based on but as someone who's studied film, I have to also state how impressed I am by two things. First, that it is good. Based on a video game and yet good at the same time! I can only imagine it's because Hollywood execs didn't play a part in its production and reducing it to a PG-13 Max Payne during the Renaissance. It feels as it's supposed to and that's refreshing. Secondly, and this is the thing that I herald more than anything about it, about 9% of this movie is real. The props and outfits are real but that's it.

If you are a diehard fan of anything AC, you might enjoy this. As a part of the AC experience, it adds value. That's why it would have been AWESOME as an included Bonus Disc with the game. Not really a new movie experience, more like a stranded extra. KGHarris, 11/11.
