There is however huge debate over the very reckless selection of soundtrack from the company and although a Kanye West song (not that his songs are legendary anyway)it was a poor selection from the creators. Let’s check out “I am a God” by Kanye West for ourselves: After listening to this, I have one thing to say … this is such a crap soundtrack.They could have used anything from Katy Perry toHanna Montana,but, they chose an ear bleeding rap song to portray the life of an assassin … in the 15th century during the renaissance! And, the crazy thing is, people agree with me:
I did not hate #AssassinsCreed movie trailer, just that rap music that felt completely out of place. It made it hard to enjoy. — MelinaMinaVader (@MelinaVader) May 16, 2016

In a Nutshell
We really enjoyed the trailer, maybe not the soundtrack too much, but what a brilliant first look at cast it really is. Since most of the movie will be CGI, we will expect everything Hollywood has to offer.
