Storyline

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. Tifa's bar serves as an orphanage for children stricken with Geostigma. Here, Tifa keeps an eye on Barret's six-year-old daughter, Marlene, while Barret searches the planet for an alternative energy source to the Planet's energy, Mako. One day, Cloud receives a phone call from the former Shinra, Inc. president, Rufus, asking him for protection from a mysterious man named Kadaj. Kadaj, in the meantime, along with his brothers Loz and Yazoo, ... Written by Andrea

Sadly overrated
29 September 2006 | by ciremoSee all my reviews

First of all, Advent Children is a movie telling a story 2 years after the events of the ever successful Adventure Rpg Playstation and PC game: Final Fantasy 7.

The reason Advent Children fails to deliver, is mainly because of it's heavy title. Final Fantasy 7. A movie supposed be the succession of the greatest story ever told. It's simply an impossible task. What makes it really bad though, is that in this movie, the story is bland, incoherent with the past and simply boring. It's as if they realized how paltry any attempts would be, and simply gave up on the idea of trying to do something that would at least look like a sequel to FF7.

The movie did look very pretty, with Square Enix's best CG animators taking pride of their work, rightfully so. The action scenes are beautifully coordinated and overall it's an original piece. The musical score, mostly a remix from the tracks of the original game, fits well with the action and keeps the pace up. Although some of the calmer music isn't as well composed, it still serves it purpose. Keep in mind, however, that this is a Japanese movie. Expect some unrealistic content, anime-style. The editing is well done, and exciting. Now if only they could fix the story.

The saddest thing about this movie is how die-hard fans of the original game accepted this movie even before it was released. But while some loves it beyond comprehension, so does also some despise the movie for all that it didn't live up to. A supposed sequel to FF7. It made a lot of people have sky-high expectations, for naught. If you've played ff7, then you might want to see this. There's a 50-50 chance you'll like it or hate it. If you haven't played the game and are completely unfamiliar with the pre-existing story of Cloud and his friends, then the movie will makes less sense, but might still be interesting to watch, as it has fight scenes that are pleasing to the eye.

If any mediocre to professional reviewer without bias would rate this, it certainly wouldn't get a grade above 6.
