Leave it out of the movie, leave it out of the game.
Sure, there is suspended reality when talking about time travelling memory-dna nonsense, but if you can fall from 300 feet into a bale of hay, then you should be able to handle an infinite number of punches, kicks, and/or blunt force trauma's. It's not that it needs to be scientifically accurate, but some consistency please!!!
It's just the director's preference as was noted in the video. It's like how some directors still choose to shoot on film than digital. I've heard enough interviews with directors on Marc Maron's WTF podcast to know that there is no difference between footage shot on film vs. digital.
Yep waaaaaay too many GCI in today's movies, its out of control. I'm really getting sick of watching fake ass movies. At least Tom Cruiz can do his own stunts, CGI free. Other than that, its alll crap.
Nah, it could just be that they got the estimate for realistic CGI guy close up jumping from a half dozen heights, rendered in 14 different angles and went damn.. if we can do this in one afternoon and just pay for the virtual set we HAVE to have anyway, that doesn't require as much animation and rigging, etc, we can save money.
AT least the film has everything I was bored to shit by in the first AC about halfway through.
