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.
Alan Rikkin: I believe you are destined for great things.
Callum Lynch: Let's find out.
Alan takes a moment to give Callum a pep talk, speaking about how Callum is destined for great things. But what these Assassin's Creed movie quotes don't say is that Alan is working toward his own secret goal and using Callum to get there.
Callum Lynch: My old man killed my mother.
Dr. Sophia Rikkin: And how does that make you feel?
Callum Lynch: Like killing him
Dr. Sophia Rikkin: I know about the foster homes, the psychological profile.
Callum Lynch: What do you want from me?
Dr. Sophia Rikkin: You're living proof of the link between hereditary and crime. By using the Animus, we can relive lives of those who made us who we are.
Dr. Sophia Rikkin tries to get Callum Lynch to open up by revealing what she already knows about him. He's a bit confused as to why she is interested, which she goes on to explain in these Assassin's Creed movie quotes.
Callum Lynch: What I saw in there, it felt real.
Dr. Sophia Rikkin: It was.
Callum is confused by how real he felt while in the Animus, almost as if he was one of his ancestors in the Spanish Inquisition. As Sophia explains, it was real.
Callum Lynch: I'm beginning to like this.
At first, Callum was a wee bit freaked out after learning his identity was removed and that he would be put into a machine that would allow him to experience life as one of his ancestors. But as he mentions in this Assassin's Creed movie quotes, it's starting to grow on him.
