At the beginning of the film, seen in the backdrop of the exterior of Abstergo Industries in Madrid, a large soccer stadium is visible just behind the facility. This is the Estadio Vincente Calderon, current home stadium of La Liga giants, as well as the 2014 champions of Spain, Atlético Madrid. See more »
The movie takes place in 2016. It is mentioned during the movie. The opening scenes the action takes place 30 years earlier, but the cars in those scenes look more modern than 1986 models. See more »
There is a reason I don't pay attention to reviewers before seeing a movie; seems most of them have lost the ability to view a movie without preconceived notions. Too much over-analyzing. Very little of what is put out these days is in any way realistic. I'm not looking for realistic when I go see a movie; I'm looking for an escape from the daily grind. I'm not a gamer and decided to see the movie since I'm familiar with Michael Fassbender and I like his work. I chose to see the 3D version, which I rarely do, and am glad I did. It was a thoroughly enjoyable movie! Kudos to Damien Walters for the stunt work--great to watch.
