Assassin's Creed movie quotes help bring the popular video game to life in the feature film about a descendant of the Assassin's Creed secret order who is sent back to experience life as a 500-year-old ancestor. Based on the Assassin's Creed video games by Ubisoft, Michael Leslie, Adam Cooper and Bill Collage penned the screenplay. Directed by Justin Kurzel, Assassin's Creed opened in theaters in the United States on December 21, 2016.
In Assassin's Creed, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) is surprisingly saved from execution by Abstergo Industries and taken to their facility. He soon meets CEO Alan Rikkin (Jeremy Irons) and his daughter, Dr. Sophia Rikkin (Marion Cotillard), who explain to him a little about what's going on. Apparently, Abstergo Industries has been researching Callum and learned that his 500-year-old ancestors were members of the Assassin's Creed secret order in the Spanish Inquisition.
As Callum learns, Abstergo Industries has developed the Animus Project which allows Callum to experience life as one of his ancestors and something Abstergo Industries wants him to do and why they saved him from execution. So Callum enters the Animus and lives life as his ancestor, Aguilar de Nerha, where he learns that he's not the only one involved in the project. But why he and others are sent into the project is still the secret that will change the lives of everyone involved forever.
Callum Lynch: We work in the dark to serve the light. We are assassins.
Callum embraces the identity of his ancestors and speaks about being an assassin in this Assassin's Creed movie quote. He goes on to talk about how the assassins work in the dark to serve good purposes.
Callum Lynch: You're here to save my soul?
Father Raymond: I understand it's your birthday.
Callum Lynch: Yeah, the party's just getting started.
Held in some kind of cell, Callum Lynch thinks that he's receiving a visit from Father Raymond to save his soul before he's killed. But as Father Raymond says in these Assassin's Creed movie quotes, something more is happening.
Dr. Sophia Rikkin: Callum, you're an assassin.
Callum Lynch: Nice!
In the most simplest of terms, Dr. Sophia Rikkin tells Callum Lynch who he really is. Callum is an assassin, not by his choice of how he lives his life, but by his ancestry.
Dr. Sophia Rikkin: Cal, if anyone knows or cares, you no longer exist.
Callum Lynch: What is this place?
Dr. Sophia Rikkin: This is your second chance.
Callum Lynch: What do you want from me?
Dr. Sophia Rikkin: Your past
When Callum awakes, Dr. Sophia Rikkin explains that the life, the person he knew himself as is gone. He continues to press for more information but Sophia remains intentionally vague.
