    And out of all those movies, The Matrix: Reloaded was by far the biggest, and considering that most of the movie is Matrix inspired, I wouldn't be surprised if they were inspired to use it. Even if it wasn't, then that just proves the lack of creative ideas from Nomura.

    Sure he did, check just about every fight scene had a bit of flying in it (Fight with Smith in the park, anyone?)

    Besides from Sephiroth, nobody could fly (I think Sephiroth was teleporting anyway). The crazy idea of making every fly in the sequal is just absurd (I'm sure it would have been more enjoyable if they weren't able to do such a thing)

    There are other ways of reaching the head than flying. If they've done it on old fairy tales written ages ago, I'm sure they can do it now

    Because Orphans Don't Have Parents

    With a username like yours, I have to ask: Where you abandoned by your parents and raised in a Orphanage? If so, that explains a lot. If not, that still explains a lot.

    I'm spamming? You're talking absolute crap out of your arse. God fucking forbid that there be similarities with any other movie, because then fucking of course its just copying off that idea! DUH! Obviously that car in that one movie, you know the one was SO copying off that other movie because that movie did it first. Who gives a flying fuck? They may do what they do just to help the storyline go along :O OMFG. Cloud didn't fly, it was just some magical scene where people threw up in the air, =/. Now cunt, do you think the flying in the matrix was original? From your logic, you're saying that the matrix did it first, which obviously isn't true. Get any form of super hero movie and you'll see flying, . SO, ofuckoff.

    Why don't you check all your other posts. I think you'll be pleasently surprised how much you spam.

    Anyway, I never said Nomura or any other FFVII AC creator copied any ideas from other movies (stories, legends, myths, etc). I said they were inspired. There is a huge difference.

    change copied to inspired then. You're having a big enough whinge about it it wouldn't make much difference anyway.
    He wasn't flying, it was like jumping then hanging in the air. He didn't physically shoot through the air, as if he were flying.cMost of the times he was floating in the air it was while attacking something else. Like the attack he did just pushed him into the air again.

    I didn't think Advent Children was all that bad. I thought there were alot of changes, and since Tetsuya Nomura was basically the head of the movie, it had alot more action. I, personally, think they should've extended the movie. There are lots of questions still unanswered, but then again, alot were answered from the film. I wasn't really into the 'flying' thing. It was a little cheesy and it over did it. As I said before, it wasn;t bad at all. This is just my oppinion, no need to agree.

    Thumbs up

    can't let the haters win. I've been waiting for this flick for damn near a decade. If the movie is trashy like they say it is, square headquarters would be meroded by angrily crazed fans demanding respite. I don't think that'll hapen..

    Actually for haters, I'mm going to pity them because they've just beaten Kira Yamato's Angst level. I mean that it was not expected for the movie to break grounds, but surprisingly, It was a good one. Way better than anyone. Anyone who has put any other FF movie over it seemingly just hates it. But to sometimes look at some spoilers really spoil doesn't it. But on other things, the whole thing was just derived from a trailer, a short... so you couldn't have expected too highly of it. As for the Matrix "rip-offs" I call the Matrix's Director even more of a rip-off himself, as some anime were doing his effects a long time ago. Heck, If Goku could testify against him...lol, sometimes you americans/europeans think too higly of yourselves.... And another thing, The Spirits within, is a better movie...BUT, they shouldn't drag the name FINAL FANTASY unto it. FFVII AC, Is a better sequel than any Japanese anime sequel this year, while SEED Destiny has been sinking, and Full Metal Panic:TSR being too short, FFVII has been groundbreaking here, in south east asia.

    10 years ago I did expect the movie to be ground breaking and it actualy was at the time. The CG shots were just sickening. Clouds yellow mop head actualy had some dimension. What fans can't understand sometimes is that this is a fantasy world and the laws there can't be compared to reality based flicks or the real world in general. Remember magic? Hokus frickin pokus!

    I have yet to see it, but i'll be shelling out the 30 bucks in November.

    it should feel real
    the charakters didnt have ANY laws and jumped all over the place at 200 miles/hour
    and the matrix used allota influences and improved upon them in a great and stylish way instead of the copy/paste job we get with FFAC

    The Spirits within, is a better movie...BUT, they shouldn't drag the name FINAL FANTASY unto it.
    aint that the truth
    playing with a name like that is already creating expectations you cant deliver

    At least a couple of us have said that. Others have implied it.

    I don't think many reasonable people will argue that Advent Children had more substance than Advent Children.

    I liked both of them, but enjoyed Advent Children considerably more !

    most people didn't like TSW because it blatantly was not final fantasy. if you can get over that, it really is a decent movie. and a movie with a great deal more substance than advent children.

    that being said, I like advent children more because it's just fun ^^
