Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseHistory:
** The burning of heretics at the stake by the Spanish Inquisition was always a public act, but it was ''not'' meant to be a show. Staging one with dancers as in the film would have scandalized the Inquisitors themselves, as they expected those acts to frighten the crowds into behaving as the Kingdom's laws ordered, not to be seen as entertainment. That those dancers even wear Satanist/pagan-like goat masks is downright nonsensical.
** Royal fashion at the setting could certainly get very outrageous, but no Spanish queen would sport the strange kind of exotic warpaint the one from the film sports.
** It is also surprising that Aguilar and Maria are allowed to wear their Assassin clothes to the stake in the film. In real life, victims of an Inquisitorial execution would be stripped of all clothes and only given to wear a poncho named ''sambenito'' and a hat named ''coroza''.
** There are two different historical characters named Alonso de Ojeda in which Ojeda is based (he might be meant to be one of them, but which is hard to tell), but none of them died at the time and place he dies in the film.

Added DiffLines:

* AssholeVictim: Callum is sentenced to death for murdering a man who is later revealed to have been a pimp. We don't learn much about him apart from that, but a deleted scene reveals that the victim was well known to law enforcement, and a man in Callum's interrogation room goes so far as to say that Cal did the world a favor.


Interestingly enough, the movie is ''not'' an AlternateContinuity adaption like most feature-length high-budget video game movies, but takes place in the same continuity as the game franchise. In fact, the movie's Animus parts take place in the same year as ''[[http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Assassin%27s_Creed_II:_Discovery Assassin's Creed II: Discovery]]'', in 1491. Both take place in Granada and have the protagonist (Ezio Auditore and Aguilar) fight the Spanish Inquisition. Ezio and Aguilar [[{{Crossover}} met each other]] in the 2018 MobilePhoneGame ''Assassin's Creed: Rebellion''.

Callum Lynch (Creator/MichaelFassbender) is a death row inmate who, after his execution, finds himself in the clutches of Abstergo Industries, the public front for the [[UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar Templar Order]]. Legally dead and with no one to miss him, Callum is forced to relive the memories of his ancestor, the [[TheHashshashin Assassin]] named Aguilar de Nerha ([[ActingForTwo Michael Fassbender]]), in late 1491, during the fall of Granada and ThePurge of the city by UsefulNotes/TheSpanishInquisition.

* {{Fingore}}: Much like Altair before him, Aguilar's ring finger is severed during his Assassin induction. Interestingly, this should not have been necessary, as the Hidden Blade was modified in the 13th century so as to no longer require such a sacrifice.

* {{Fingore}}: Much like Altair before him, [[Characters/AssassinsCreedI Altaïr]], Aguilar's ring finger is severed during his Assassin induction. Interestingly, this should not have been necessary, as the Hidden Blade Blade's design was modified by Altaïr in the 13th century Century so as to no longer require such a sacrifice.sacrifice as explained in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII''. It's probably just that the tradition was still strong there.

** Aguilar has his ring finger cut off during his Assassin induction, similar to what Altaïr and the Masyaf Assassins underwent in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI''. Curiously, though being set in the same historical period, Ezio didn't need to get the same treatment for his entry into the Italian Brotherhood.
