Assassin’s Creed: Checkmate Imagines Edward Kenway As A Guy Ritchie Protagonist [Video]
If only time actually worked like that. We would all be way less awkward as people.
Hands down, the best parts of all the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes movies is when Robert Downey Jr.’s Holmes has to decide the best way to kick somebody’s teeth in using hyper-fast mental calculations — which sounds like a trick that a member of the Assassins would totally know how to do. So Machinima gave us Edward Kenway doing just that.
Fun fact: if the guy playing Kenway feels really familiar for some reason, it’s because we’re pretty sure he’s Reuben Langdon — the voice of Dante in Devil May Cry 3 and 4, as well as a stuntman who’s done motion capture for about a spillion video games.
This short film was written and directed by Joe Miale, who also directed Decibel.
