Two years after the events in "Final Fantasy VII", a disease called 'Seikon-Shoukougun', or 'Geostigma', is spreading through the planet. This disease is believed to have been caused by the body fighting off foreign material that invaded the body two years earlier, at the end of "Final Fantasy VII". Guilt-ridden and haunted by his past, ex-SOLDIER Cloud Strife has decided to live a secluded, solitary life away from his friends while maintaining "Strife's Delivery Service", whose headquarters is located in Tifa Lockheart's bar, the Seventh Heaven.

This is a movie that seems to made for a particular group of people: People who have an orgasm any time they see Cloud Strife do something. The story is simple. Of course, when i say simple, I mean, nonexistent. It's like this: Virus bad, curing it good. And then a little bit of Sepiroth Bad, Cloud good.
It really is a brainless film. Just a bunch of graphics, no story, and the only character from Final Fantasy VII they seem to care about is Cloud. But they need to throw in everybody to make it a Final Fantasy VII movie, so they all appear in one big battle to pretty much assist Cloud and sit tight while the rest of the movie plays on. It's like, if the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film focused on Leonardo, with the other three watching him fight the whole time.
Not only are the actions scenes long, they are quite boring as well. I don't mind a long action scene if it is entertaining. But this wasn't entertaining. They dragged on forever without a good payoff in the end. Especially the Cloud/Sepiroth Battle. It's like, let's have this long battle sequence that finishes with a simple move that could have been done earlier anyway.
The film was beautiful looking, I have to admit. It's one of the best pieces of computer animation I have seen. Unfortunately, the look of the film cannot make up for the lack of story and the abandonment of just about every favorite Final Fantasy VII character.
