Gekijô-ban hagane no renkinjutsushi Shanbara wo yuku mono: Not great
This is a sequel to the 2003 anime Full Metal Alchemist but in movie form, it attempts to follow on from the events of the shows finale and perhaps answer a few unanswered questions.
Sadly truth be told it creates new ones and delivers a highly underwhelming story that utilizes the weakest points from the anime itself.
I won't break down the plot as it will cause spoilers for the anime for anybody who hasn't seen it. I will just say there are some inconsistencies, it's a pretty lame plot and it does absolutely nothing for the FMA universe.
Sure, it was nice to see the characters back and it was nice to see several get the finales the anime didn't give us but ultimately it should have been a lot better than this.
Not good, not bad, but considering it's a follow on it's sad to say I wouldn't even call this essential viewing for fans of the franchise.
Some great social commentary
Wraps up some story arcs/characters nicely
Follows on from the anime relatively well
Some contradictions from the anime
Story is pretty weak
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Science that doesn't benefit people isn't science at all
