Does anyone know of any movies that replicate the same feel as AC2/Brotherhood set in the Renaissance?

The tackle shown in the clips on the UFC trailer.

back to your question, i recently watched the three musketeers and in the begining of the movie they were in renaissance italy and venice looked exactly like its from AC 2

Watch the Showtime series The Borgias. There have been two series so far.

You'll see lots of the locations used in AC2 and ACB, and there is a full-time assassin in the employ of Cesare.

Well, here's a scene from a movie called "The Tourist" starring Jonny Depp; It's a little bit edited with AC soundtrack, but you'll get the idea...would this be enough for your taste?

The Borgias TV series obviously. After playing AC2 and ACB, you will feel like home watching it.

The Three Musketeers movie that came out recently reminded me of Assassin's Creed 2.

Dearie me,Alexander Dumas must be spinning in his grave over that!I does look entertaining however,but not a patch on the ones with Oliver Reed and Roy Kinear.

One film i saw thats good has nothing to do with the time frame but it does have "assassins" in the title and theres plenty of action........................................"13 assassins"

I just watched clips of it on Youtube. It looks decent. I'll check it out :)

The Borgias received considerable hype, but do keep in mind, it is not as accurate as AC from what I saw, so you may get a good few laughs at ''Hey, that didn't happen...'':p

AC II did not display the Borgias much.....other than Rodrigo, but from what I read up, it does have some un-accurate things in terms of history, but it seems a pretty good show.

Yeah I was thinking AC2 + ACB ;P They're almost inseparable

It's a lot more accurate than AC. There are things that get conflated, such as the Battle of Forli where they show you events that happened in two separate sieges as one event, and they alter things here and there for the narrative but to say AC is more accurate is way off the mark. The games play pretty loosely with events and people.

[edit] Hold on, are you telling me you watched some of The Borgias and thought, "hey, it didn't happen that way in AC"? If so, I have news for you :D

AC is accurate, minus magical apples and some altering events...
Maybe playing too much made me think it is accurate as what happened e.e.. but some events are off~

A large amount is correct, don't get me wrong. If you read up on the real history, you'll find people died in completely different circumstances, at different times, or even that this person's death has been swapped with that person's. And thank God they do, it's better that way! You haven't really learned history itself though, without double-checking on what they've said. It's an excellent way of getting people interested in history though, and if you happen to know the history in advance then it's great to see how they play with it.

That's why they have that moment in AC1 when Desmond shows a rare bit of intelligence, getting up from the Animus and saying, "That's not how it happened!" only for Vidic to explain that sometimes the history books have been altered deliberately. It's a funny idea which covers them for anything they want to change.

I know, but when you play the games as much as I do, in your head all you want is it too be true...xD
Yeah, deaths have obviously been altered, but alot of the time they died on the same year/time, so it is pretty cool.

Yeah, not just deaths, but connections and other stuff too. There's nothing they change that's ever bad, though -- they always do it in service of the story. I often wonder if some kid somewhere has handed in a History paper and left the teacher scratching his or her head, wondering where they got this stuff from :)

One of the reasons I really love AC is I instead of opening any book, I just played AC1 for my test on the Crusades and some wikipedia.

Dunno, looking into history without Assassin's and Templars is odd....kinda like most weapons that are in CoD are always associated with it.
