Well for all you that have been living under a rock, this is a movie that takes place after the events of Final Fantasy VII. All the main characters return (perhaps even the old antagonist. *grin*.)

The confirmed release date is September 14th, 2005. But that's in Japan. A USA release still hasn't been announced.

I summarized that terribly. just wanted to post the release date.

I've wanted to see this movie so badly, but never knew when it's was comming out. My oni and me get joaking about how there was no movie and some person just made all these mini scenes, but nothing else.

Well, I did hear about this too... Guess what?

They are going to release alot of FF7-based games. Like one where you control Vincent, and the movies, Advert Children... and I think I heard one about the Shinra Co. team where you control the Turks. (Hey, after all, they might have to explain how does the Turks came into the picture.)

But I will be waiting for this movies to come up... Just don't make it seem way worse then just FF:TSW (That kinda suck and slightly similar to FF7.)

I definitely will be too.

Yeah, I've just kind of "pushed this movie" away and forgotten about it, since it's been delayed so much.

But it does look good, and the trailers do get me hyped. I still say that Final Fantasy VII is completely overated as a game (even though I love the game, it's just nowhere near being the best or anything) I still think this movie is going to rock, and possibly make the whole FFVII universe seem cooler.

I'm hoping for a Could - Sephiroth duel.

Beo: Yeah, Square's put into affect this thing called the "Final Fantasy VII Compilation" set of games, and the movie. Honestly, not a lot of the games seem interesting. Derge of Cerberus (where you play as Vincent) looks way too much like a Devil May Cry game, and they're making an FFVII game for ... Cell-Phones? ...

This movie does look really impressive with all the 3d graphics and since I'm in animation right now I can appreciate it and thats problaby while I'll watch it. Also because since I played FFVII and I can experience more of the world and I just want to know what happens after 5 years after meteor hit.

From the trailers I have seen we can expect a Cloud vs. Sephiroth fight along with many other awesome action scenes.

And about the cell-phone game they are actually making it and you play as the Turks. Hopefully this will be the end of all these FFVII games, and they should concentrate on making previous FF games in the same world for example a FFVIII game where you play as Seifter or game where you play as Shadow in FFVI and etc.

I watched it today.

Breathtaking. Amazing. Outstanding. Beautiful.

They all apply. The movie flowed very well. The Japanese VO's were perfect. (I didn't hear the English ones.) The action gave me goosebumps, literally. The plot was well thought out. Basically i'm in shock. Inarguably the best video game movie ever.

I'll post more on how glorious it is when I can think straight.

That's right, Dirge of Cerberus. And about the Turks... They get a cell phone game and a movie. "Chrisis Core" I think they're called.

It's about time someone posted after me......Now I get to talk more about it.

Well after I thought about it for awhile, i've come to realize the movie has its flaws. Bias aside it really isn't 10 material.......However it does deserve a high 8 or a 9.

The plot was pretty medicore, but many will argue that it was outstanding. There really was no room for character development because all the character developmemt took place in the game. (Cloud does actually change towards the end though.) There were some unexplained things such as how the spirits got there in the first place and other things. And I lied about the Japanese voice overs.....Red XIII's made me laugh.

What really makes this movie is the action. The action is utterly amazing. It really is. If you don't even like final fantasy, I still recommend seeing this for the action alone.

5 out of 10 from me.

Yeah, I'm sure some people will be surprised by that.

I seirously didn't like the lacking-character development. The plot seemed to start off from nothing and go pretty much nowhere. There were (and just like the game) too many plotholes also.

Yeah, you can say this movie "looked" good, but "it" itself wasn't all that great in my opinion. It was definitely worth seeing, and I watched it with an open mind (expecting it to be a lot better than all of the criticism all of my friends have given it), but when I watched it, I seriously had to keep myself up and "try" to hold my interest in it. Basically, I thought it was extremely boring outside of the overdramatic-DBZ fighting (which yeah, it was overall pretty cool, but cheesy).

I just don't know what to say about it ...

The whole Sephiroth thing was too easily seen from the beggining. It was predictible (can't spell shit).

In my opinion, Final Fantasy VII Advent Children should not be considered a stand alone video game movie. Instead, it should be seen sort of like an expansion. Think Final Fantasy X: Another Story (come to think of it, Another Story took place 2 years after the original game as well ). The storyline is pretty mediocre. The action is great but as mentioned before, a bit cheesy. Only by pairing this with the original game will it be actually satisfying because all the character development happened in the game. Most of this was just fanfare anyway.

I guess, but even after looking at it and trying to peice it back together in with the game (which I've beaten twice, just to mention) this movie almost seems "pointless" to the whole FFVII world.

It was an interesting movie, but yeah.

I will admit, the Turks rocked.

Spoiler:

Also, if someone can please explain to me how Tseng survived getting slashed at by Sephiroth and then buried under the great Pyramid in the game, please explain.

Rude was so cool. ^.^

Spoiler:

Forget what you said Xeo, answer these...
1) What is that white wolf thing that appears every so often in the movie? My guess is that it's Django..but that wouldn't make much sense.
2) When Barret jumps in to protect Denzel from Bahamut, he says "Protect your mother here". But the thing is, the only woman close by is Tifa. When Barret says "mother", does he refer to Tifa?

Spoiler:
You know, when I first played FFVII I seriously thought Barret and Tifa were married. =P

- The whole white-gray wolf thing was definitely weird. I couldn't think of it symbolizing anything ... ?
- They also never really seemed to explain Geostigma. I'm guessing it was just some kind of plague that happened to spread around the planet, maybe from the meteor?
- What was the purpose of Zack being shown at the end?


This is just the thing that made my enjoyment out of this movie diminish, "too many questions". But just to clear things up, I'm not literally bashing it, just saying it had flaws in my opinion ... and for the record, remember I'm the guy who used to go by 'MasterSephiroth'.
