    i watched it

    it was a mint film but its in japaneese and i cant stand subbs

    the graphics are very good and the storyline carrys on from the game

    i didnt get who the 3 people were with the silver hair but they seem to have a connection with jenova and there like seperoth and cloud

    clould has a really cool bike all his swords come out on his bike ready for battle

    seperoth does not have a big part in this game hes not really in it much same with barret and red .

    all the charaters are all there and the church from 7 is cool


    be posti more l8ters

    really just use the subs, the story (what there is of it) will make mch more sense then and you won't have to worry about spoilers in this forum. =)

    But lets hope so. I`ve yet to see it but i can imagine them not changing the mouth animations. It would look like Monkey or something.

    That said, it sucked regardless. I will admit that I can understand the surge of fanboy love because even I felt it at certain points; specifically, watching Tifa kick the shit out of that dork with the wrist-mounted doohicky, and the incredibly cute version of Yuffie they came up with. I didn't like how any of the other characters were portrayed, though, and I hated all the fights besides Tifa's, with their goofy "DBZ meets The Matrix" style. Fuck this, and all the other new FF7 stuff too.

    I loved it but I wouldn't hate it cause I love the game with all my heart but as a person who lives for film-making after second viewing I could see some flaws none that really have me concerned but nothing that gives hatred towards it. It entertained me, it made me laugh and I felt it was good.

    Watch the movie reading the subtitles, then watch it again looking at the rest of the movie, you'll get used to scanning the subs then switching back to watch the action unfolding....hmmmm

    otherwise an okay summary for a quiky...I really want to attack this post but don't have the time.

    On the flying topic, they look more like jumping than flying, using small touches to keep in the air. Like when Cloud and Kadaj's gang fight in the tunnel. Hmmm

    However, since FFVII: AC is a continuation from a game where little to no flying occurs, I find it strangely annoying that they decided to include such an idea. If people think that the characters just jump, then they should watch the final battle. There, a lot of flying magically happens.

    It's better to have plenty of stuff coming off from this rather then with FFVIII - good god, I'd go hang myself if shit sequels came out of that games arse D:

    It was overrated, but I liked it, because I liked the villains/bishiesness factor/Rude and Reno moments. Couldnt care much for the ending, 8/10 overall.

    Did any of you notice that anyone who hasn't finished the game, and waited for the credits to roll, then watch the "500 years later" FMV, with Red XIII and the little cubs running. Don't you think they would think that the events in Advent Children happened 498 years ago?

    Perhaps and i did see the last FMV midgar looked amzing..so Advent children is 2 years after final fantasy and 498 years before the final FMV if that makes sense.

    so yeah, i downloaded the japanese with subtitles version the other day (with every intenetion to purchase the english release (call this a preview)). i'm immensly impressed visually, it's undeniably amazing. as for the plot, it's quite horrendus, tbh. i'm willing to put it down to bad translation for now (hence the intention to buy the english release).

    as for the flying debate... weren't they just very skillfully jumping? if they could indeed fly, there'd be no use for the airship. nor the motorbikes or any other means of transport. don't forget, we've got these guys up to lv.99 last time we saw them.

    also, the identity of the silver haired guys, my guess is that they are the last remaining sephiroth clones (prolly why they call cloud 'brother' and jenova 'mother').

    one thing that does puzzle me though, is that rufus is confined to a wheel chair (and suffering, quite badly, from a teminal illness), but suddenly jumps up and throws himself out of an office block window (the jenova's neck in the box scene).

    also, the 'using the planet as a ship' plan by sephiroth is really screwy, and there's no way an expirienced, adult FF writer came up with that one. so, until i see a properly translated version, i will disregard the plot (it's drivel at the moment), and say 'well done graphics department'.

    well, if that Red XIII as a reference point is the present then the events of AC were 498 years ago, were they not? and events of FFVII happened two years prior to this, i.e, 500 years ago. which is explained in the film (opening speech by Marlene).

    The movie was class like the part when they fight Bathumut Sin, The fight on the bikes and when *major spoiler* when he fights Sephiroth i didn't like the way Barret and the rest didn't get to fight as much as Cloud Tifa Reno and Rude and red XII didn't talk much

    Aye? can you explain it to me again? I can't understand it. I'm a stupid reader, I can't understand you. I'm lost.
