A bartender is captured by a large corporation and is forced into a machine, named "The Animus", allowing him to relive the memories of his ancestors -- Most of whom are Assassins -- to retrieve powerful and dangerous artifacts.
Ezio is the no. 1 favourite of most fans. He has had 2 other game appearances besides the second one and 3 movie appearances. The movies have been a mixed bag. You have "Assassin's Creed: Lineage" which was a good little prequel to the second and "Assassin's Creed: Ascendance" which is a completely pointless and irrelevant entry in the series. Then you have this, the best entry in the short films and one of the best titles.
It has been 10 years since the events in Constantinopole and Ezio is "retired" from the assassin way of life. He tries to put his past behind him and raise his family but the past comes back to haunt him when an assassin comes to him for guidance. With the assassin, her enemies follow as well. Ezio stands alongside her to fight them.
Might I say, when Ezio died, I was moved. Probably more so than when Altair died in "Assassin's Creed: Revelations" and Altair was my favourite assassin (but Ezio was also pretty bad ass). I also liked the setting that he died in. He was assassinated but his final moments were with his family in the same square that his father and brothers were killed in on "Assassin's Creed 2".
The animation is fantastic. It isn't like "Revelations" where you could hardly tell it was animation but this animation was good.
If you are a fan I hold this up and plea with you to watch it. You will not be disappointed. If you are not a fan, well I think you still might enjoy it.
