    Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
    A strange disease is decimating the land and it's up to the Hero cloud to emerge from solitude and defeat a new breed of enemy in the computer animated feature that picks up where Final Fantasy VII left off. It has been two years since the events of Final Fantasy VII, and though the ruins of Midger still stand to show the sacrifices made for peace, a new threat to mankind has arrived. With the citizens of the countryside falling deathly ill and old enemies rising from the ashes to seek revenge, Cloud must leap back into action and help his fellow men lest his solitude leave all of mankind vulnerable to another devastating attack. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Product Not As Described

      Buyer Beware: The copies I saw of this movie inside the Best Buy I went to did not have a slipcover indicating that this is a Blu-Ray+DigitalHD nor did they have a sticker on the shrinkwrap displaying Includes Digital UltraViolet. Without these indicators, it means that the movie DOES NOT contain a Digital UltraViolet voucher. So, if you are hoping to get a Digital UltraViolet or even an iTunes Digital Copy of this movie free, make sure you check to see if that Includes Digital UltraViolet sticker is on the shrinkwrap or not. Because I never opened this in light of seeing that I'd be paying for just a single Blu-Ray disc without the Digital UltraViolet voucher, I exchanged this for Superbad (Unrated) Blu-Ray+DigitalHD UltraViolet. If you order this on the website, you cannot tell if you will actually get the Blu-Ray+DigitalHD version of this movie because all I have seen so far are Blu-Rays of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete without the Includes Digital UltraViolet sticker and without the Blu-Ray+DigitalHD slipcover. Buy at your own risk.

      Fair Warning About The Digital Copy

      I'm not reviewing the movie itself. If you're here, you've likely already seen it. I enjoy it a lot, it looks great, fun continuation of the story with all of the faces you knew and loved from FFVII, yadda yadda. The reason I'm writing this is because, while I already had a copy of the movie (the complete version, even), I bought this one to get the digital copy, as it was cheaper than buying just the digital version on Vudu. I rarely watch actual blu-rays anymore, as I usually watch stuff on my laptop at work. That said, anyone considering buying this primarily for the digital copy - it's ONLY IN JAPANESE. Some won't mind, and it does have English subtitles. The blu-ray itself is also in English. But I checked Amazon, Google Play, Movies Anywhere, and Vudu - all of them only have the Japanese version available. I don't regret buying it for that by any means as it doesn't bother me, but I figured everyone should know before buying.

      Great Movie, but with a huge caveat:

      I personally love FFVII: Advent Children. However, this movie takes place two years after the end of the video game, Final Fantasy VII. Since this movie was not really intended to be marketed to a general audience, the makers of the movie assume that you've played the video game. Thus, the plot and character development is REALLY sparse, and takes advantage of the immensely developed story in the video game. So if you watch this movie without knowledge of FFVII, you're not going to understand pretty much anything. The graphics are incredible for a movie from 2005, and I personally love the music. They also throw in lots of little touches that are very fun, like the Loz's ringtone in the church scene with Tifa. Everyone who played and enjoyed FFVII should buy this movie without question. If only to see the Omnislash version 5 at the end! However, if you didn't play FFVII, sit back and enjoy the pretty pictures and sounds without as much of a story.

      Somewhat improved over the original

      The original Advent Children had poor pacing and editing; it was a film that was made for fans of the game and newcomers would be lost with the characters and the plot. With 26 new minutes added in, the film is slightly improved in terms of giving more screen time for Cloud, Zack, and Denzel. However, a lot of characters like the returning party members aren't given much to do still. Cloud's turning point to change does have enough justification. The villains are also still very one dimensional and not very interesting. Blu-Ray transfer wise. The transfer is only okay. nothing mindblowing. Overall, if you liked the film then you'll probably like the additional content. Otherwise, your mind won't be changed.

      Square's CGI Masterpiece

      Posted
      Maveric

      Whether you are a Final Fantasy VII fan or not, Advent Children will certainly not dissapoint. Between the fluid animation, the excellent imagination of Nojima and Nomura, and the musical genius of Uematsu, this is one movie for anyone's collection. Taking place after the events of the 1990's story of Final Fantasy VII, the orginal characters find themselves facing a new menace; 3 Sephiroth clones in search of their "mother", the calamity of the sky, Jenova. The hero, Cloud Strife, must face his toughest opponent, his regret and fears, as he continues the struggle to save those dear to him and prevent chaos from threatening the planet again. Although rather short to cram in so much story, the movie still manages to captivate its audience, and leaves the viewer wanting more. This movie is recommended for teens and adults, as it contains some themes not easily understood by children. Definitely recommended for the Final Fantasy Fan. This movie deserves 5 stars.

      Pretty good tribute to FFVII

      As a huge fan of the original Final Fantasy VII, I found this movie to be very satisfying. It truly is a beautiful film; it has by far some of the best CGI I've ever seen. That CGI is put to its best use in the action scenes, which are fast, frenzied, and full of great fighting "choreography." Any fan of FFVII will love this movie. But, that is also it's biggest drawback. For those who have never played the original game, they'll have no idea what's going on. Granted there is a short synopsis at the beginning of the film, but it's not much. The story line isn't very clear in the movie anyway, so the lack of background information won't help. Also, the voice acting could use some work in specific areas of the movie. It's not bad overall, but some parts are better than others. All in all though, this is a fun, short and sweet movie that any fan of action flicks should check out. If nothing else, just watch it for the CGI; it'll be the best you've ever seen.

      Good but not great.

      The first time I watched this movie I was extremely impressed with the cgi. From the very beginning you can tell that a lot of work was put into the detail of the environments and characters. What equally impressed me as a FF7 fan is that they were able to appropriately incorporate all of the main characters from the game, some more than others, but thats a given. The plot of the movie is a little confusing at first but eventually comes together towards the middle of the movie. The fact that they based it upon the afteryears of the games storyline can leave those who never actually played the game lost a little longer than those that have. The only real issue I had with the movie was the voice acting. I can understand the need to change certain words or lines when translating from one language to another, but I find it lazy when you through unnecessary slang into the mix like "that's whack" into a movie like this.

      Advent Children Was The FF Movie Fans Wanted

      Final Fantasy Advent Children was the FF movie that I, and I'm sure, many others, truly wanted. Although many FF games were rich with storylines, endearing characters, and sword and sorcery, Final Fantasy VII elevated the series with it's full motion video cinematic cut scene's, and stunning CD quality audio. The cinematic experience of the game seemed like the perfect transition for the franchise's debut on the big screen, however, we all had to wait four years after FF: The Spirits Within, to see that vision come to fruition. With that said, I'm still partial to FF VI (III in US), and would love to see a CG movie based on that entry.
