Why does it matter how old the material you're reviewing is or what it is? All it is is an analysis and opinion, it's not meant to be taken seriously. Trust me, it's a good review, and it'll be even better when I write up Part II.

it's a VERY dissapointing compared to the game preqeul, but it wouls absolutly PWN all films like the matrix and all all the n00bs who never played ff7. Like my friends are like 'that film is f**kin amazing', yet they've never played ff7. It's kinda confusing though, with the flashbacks n' stuff. The storyline was allright but the returning attempt of sephiroth was poor, he got defeated by ONE omni-slash OMG. What also didn't make sense was the fact that cloud and sephiroth didnt use materia, they just fought with blades, and he managed to somehow jump like 200 ft, quite unlike teh game (but i guess that happened in the game, the graphics werent that good to show at the time). And the english dubb was as korny as hell. the part where sephi says "i will....never....be...a memory" i was like WTF?!??! But yeah the graphics were amazing and fight scenes were amazing too, but compared to the game you'd expect TONS more, not just on smegging bahamut and three brothers who didn't even do much. but like i said for people who have never played FF7 would see this film as pwnish; i think tetsuya just wanted to make a film with anime battle amazingnes but in CGI, to pwn. Then ff7 sequel was made from it to really make fans go nuts. and like he said in the special edition dvd. "anything is possible" he wanted to make random amazing wth shit to create some pwnish action. but yeah for an ff7 sequel it was pretty s**t, like yeah even D.O.C had something big in like OMEGA, but all my friends said FF7:AC was amazing, yet they've never played the game. So really if you look at the view of a person who barely knows FF then of course it would be amazing to watch, the other way round for the views of those who played ff7 before. overall i don't really liek the story plot but for a film ALONE it was pretty good. I never really seen a CGI film with such action put in. It's WAAAYYYY better compared to Final Fantasy: the spirits within(that was jsut s**t).

ANYWAYS WTF AM I TALKING ABOUT DON'T READ THIS BULLSHIT I JUST GOT BORED DON'T READ

To lokita:

You don't have to read it, I'm just saying it really doesn't when you review something and what it is. If it came out like I said you all must read my wonderful review, I'm sorry, that's not what I meant.

Well, there is a certain series of time frames one should make a review in. The best is obviously when it's a current title, either recently in theatres or recently released on DVD. The other is when a significant period of time has passed that people are less aware of the title.

Right now, AC is neither of those and most people in the fandom are sick of hearing about it. Especially since it's typically associated with overzealous fanboys and bad music videos (just like Naruto). Nobody is going to really care about your review, and if it's longer than a paragraph, won't take the time to read it. Everyone who is going to see it already has seen it at this point and made up their mind about it. Wait 5 years, and people may be interested in a fresh perspective.

i thought advent children was good. it's not so much a stand alone movie type...but more of a tie in with the game and all. the graphics were really good, the soundtrack was great, the fighting scenes were good to watch. and i think what it did was it interested many people to watch anime and play the final fantasy franchise. i mean that IS the point right? to interest people, for those hard core fans (i'm not one) i guess it may have been disappointing but...to each thier own?

I see what you're saying, I agree, but the point of my review is just to rant about how bad the movie was, and to make fun of the fandom behind it in a few paragraphs. I just thought some other people here might be interested in something like that. It'll probably just end up as a joke between me and my friends, and in that case I won't mind.

I skimmed your review and It wasn't that good, it was more of a rant than a review.

FYI: The guys from Shinra found Jenova's head at the North Crater. They just didnt tell Cloud about it.

You're right, it was a rant. And thanks for pointing out that info I missed.

as long as its ff7, people expect too much of it... i think it was really overrated.. if u didn't play ff7 u wouldn't realize that it doesn't have some connection on it.. sephiroth changed his plans on earth.. in ff7 he wanted to summon meteor so that earth will be wounded and he will suck all the life force of earth.. in ff7ac he said his gonna use the earth as a ship to search for the promised land...
ff7 players we all know that the promise land for the cetras was to be part of the lifestream.. but here it was changed it made it more confusing..
on the good side.. i really luv all the fight scenes.. his new version of omnislash.. his new bad-assed sword!! w/c he can detach and combine to make in powerful.. ehehhee...

i think squaresoft became too lazy, they think as long as it has final fantasy trademark people will rush to it.. so people did... like wat they did to FFX-2.. its the sequel to FFX.. FFX was a good RPG.. plus the story was good.. in FFX-2 the ending sucked!!! the good ending was better than the ultimate ending!!! the ultimate ending is really hard to achieved!! and all of that for tidus saying.. "m back bcoz u cherished me!" wat a lame excuse... i really thot that it was like a cool ending wid more CG graphics... it turned out to be lame...

if i may add.. i think if u put the bad, good and ultimate ending they look like their part1,2,3...

their related.. in bad, u see yuna riding a ship to wer tidus is..
in good, yuna arrives to wer tidus is and celebrates wid other characters..
in ultimate.. amybe after the party they talked about how and y tidus came.. if they would have connected those.. it would have been great.. right?? and wouldn't turn out to be a scam.... ehhehehehe....
