Storyline

In the events of Last Order, taking five years before the beginning of Final Fantasy VII itself, Sephiroth was ordered to inspect the Mako Reactor outside the town of Nibelheim with a small entourage, consisting of one other member of SOLDIER and a few Shin-Ra MPs. Among this group was SOLDIER 1st Class member Zack and his buddy, a 16-year-old Shin-Ra trooper named Cloud Strife. Nibelheim was Cloud's childhood home, but he avoided showing his face and revealing himself to his childhood friend Tifa Lockhart out of shame over not becoming a full-fledged member of SOLDIER as he had sworn to do several years earlier. At the reactor, Sephiroth found several pod-like chambers containing monstrous creatures, apparently former humans, possibly mutated by injection with Jenova cells and exposure to Mako. Deeper inside, he found a larger chamber labeled "JENOVA," which contained a very strange feminine-looking creature. Deeply disturbed by the fact that the creature had the same name as his "...

Super Good
3 January 2006 | by yukons17See all my reviews

This little movie is fantastic. I think the art is good and the music fits. The character development is amazing considering the short length of the film.

As for the story, it's interesting for fans of the game and for n00bs to the FFVII compilation. I've heard debate about the accuracy of the story compared to the game, but I don't see how due to the complex gaps left in the game story. If anything, I felt Last Order answered many questions about the complicated events of Cloud's past.

Nonetheless, any fans of the genre at all should experience this. I was glued to the screen from start to finish. I'm excited to see where the FFVII series will go next. -yukons
