Just rented it today and finished watching it.


Pretty damn awesome but is pretty slow for the first half of the movie. Fight scenes were great and graphics were amazing, but I felt that it had something missing to it.

The ending was pretty awful IMO should've had more AVALANCHE members doing stuff. DEFINITELY should've had more Vince and Barret fighting.


Your thoughts on it?

this thread would have been a little more appropriate a couple of years ago. but its just a marvel of CGI technology.

There's nothing incredibly interesting here.

I didn't really like it too much. Although I never really did like Final Fantasy 7, 8 was always my favourite.

I watched it in Japanese about 2 years ago so I don't really remember what it was like. The end was pretty awesome though.

Yeah fuck Cloud. He's just depressed the entire movie like an idiot.


And lulz at Vince not having a cell phone

I really enjoyed it, i dont see what the complaints are about, the story was pretty much rounded off already in the game, i think they did a great job of making a finished story intresting again without getting silly with it.
The CGI was brilliant, dialogue was good without being too cheesy, great soundtrack and the action sequences were very well directed.
I watch it maybe 4-5 times a year and enjoy it every time.

I for one, loved it. The graphics were amazing at the time, and I enjoyed a lot; although true, it was lacking a bit in story.

Edit:

I loved the soundtrack especially.

9/11 is regarded as yesterday in the States.

4 years ago I was a completely different person. 4 years is a good amount of time to me.

IMO, I think people should stop making 9/11 such a big deal, every year they do some super huge news special on it. It should just be mentioned and have a moment of silence.

One's a slightly obscure movie about a computer game (and Christmas, or so I've been told) and the other is a terrorist attack killing thousands, and almost unprecedented in American history for it's unexpected ferocity. I don't really think the two can be compared.

I didn't understand that crazy movie one bit. What's with the wimpy-looking white-haired boy who thinks the green light is his mother?

Maybe I need to play the game. I liked the other Final Fantasy movie more.

There's been conversation on FF:AV in the Final Fantasy Game Thread, but yeah I've seen it three times, cause much nostalgia about the game. Sephiroth's theme was just awesome with the electric guitar included... I was somewhat disappointed about changes in certain characters though. Marlene seemed sweet and not annoying in the game, and Tifa looked different than I'd imagine. I suppose it was a pretty good adaptation anyway.

Wooh Aeris!

Imao. The movie was great. Cloud went bad ass at the end. I still like Squall,Tidus, and Auron better. I guess i can relate to them more.

FFVII always been my favorite. Cloud kicked ass at the end, which was awesome. I liked that movie.

Too bad they only use 1 materia, which is the wrong color to start with.

All the movie was in the city, I would prefer the battles taking place somewhere else.

But hey, it was entertaining (I still don't know how Jehova's head can be at like 3 places at the same time).
#30
Despite, Final Fantasy VII being the greatest game ever, IMO, I don't really like the movie. I will give it that it looked in****ingcredible. But, the story was terrible. And I know Final Fantasy is supposed to be pretty out there, but the fight scenes were ridiculous. I mean, you never fight falling down buildings in the game. And as previously mentioned, the materia being the wrong color pissed me off.
#31
i've watched this movie three times. once on drunk, once baked, once on shrooms. This movie just gets better and better every time i watch it. The animation is mind blowing, and the fight scenes were awesome. It got a little confusing at times, but it's not unenjoyable to watch.

It's REALLY confusing for people who know nothing of the original FF7 because the movie is based directly off the game. I can let the story slide a little, but it should've had way more and BETTER fight scenes.

The Bahamut SIN fight was pretty average, though it definitely should've had more of Barret and Vince, especially since Vince is immortal with transforming powers and all. Barret should've shot fucking mini-nukes at it!

Tifa is quite annoying and always says the most cliched stuff. The movie would be 4x better without her. Needs more Aerith


Side note: I love how

Too much Cloud.
To little Yuffie.
Just enough Vincent.

I much prefer Tifa in the movie, she was an annoying bitch in the game.
Tifa's fight was the best part of the movie.

The triplets were ****ing stupid, as was Sephiroth coming back, the plot should of been unrelated to the game in every way except characters and themes.

Clouds new sword however, was awesome.
#35
I loved the movie, it looks great on a HD TV. I hope we eventually get Advent Children Complete on Blu Ray here - new scenes (Sephiroth impaling Cloud with Masamune) , new textures (ripped clothes, blood etc.)


Apparently Japan only though. The bastards

I fell asleep when I rented it and my girlfriend watched the whole thing.

I hate her because she's a slut.

This was my ex girlfriend from 2 years ago i'm talking about.

Don't you have a PS3? Yeah, no problem then.

But wasn't it just that only Japan are getting the XIII demo? I'm pretty sure AC: Complete is still getting released overseas.

Aye I do. That would be good, the demo doesn't really bother me, I'm more excited for Versus anyway

I would be really surprised if it wasnt released at a later date, since Blu-ray's popularity is growing more and more. This film would be a big seller worldwide.

As for the film, it was alright.
The story was a bit meh, I didnt really care about the three fucktard bros.
The fight/chase scenes were fantastic- I think thats all it really set out to show and that is fine with me.
It looks amazing on dvd, I can't wait to check it out in High Definition.
