I kind of gave up on the movie real quick. The beginning with Ed and Alphonse as kids was just bad, like grade school level bad. Then, when we get to older Ed confronting some priest dude the special effects were terrible. Large stones would shoot out of the buildings and apparently never seem to have suffered any damage as a result. I got to the part where Ed runs head first into a column of rock and just gave up.

Was there going to be a good movie beyond that?

The look and feel of the start is pretty much the way it looks and feels to the very end. It entertained me, but if you got as far as that and lost interest, you wouldn't enjoy the rest. So you can safely let it go.

I sat through the whole thing on Netflix. You're not missing much by skipping the rest of the movie. It doesn't stray too far from the original plot, but everything about the movie screams cheap knock-off.

it's based on the original FMA, not the brotherhood. I found it followed the plot rather well of the original. there were a few characters missing, but the movie wasn't all that long, so, maybe they might be nice and bring us more love. keep in mind that's not "Netflix original" it's them buying the license to host it sort of thing. it's Japanese original live action, thus is wasn't Hollywood failure. the guy doing Ed is fairly new to the acting business and I feel he's improving well. it was dry, and the comedy was a bit meh, but, the cgi and acting was rather well. ironically enough, Ed's main character is a Pop Idol in Japan... but I had no problem watching it, but to each's own I suppose. as for the point where you left off OP, it stays about the same throughout, aka original FMA not the darker and more serious version brotherhood.
