Storyline

The plot takes place at the beginning of the 20th century, in a reality where alchemy is real, extremely developed and respected. The plot features brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric who, after attempting the forbidden technique of human transmutation, suffer the consequences. Alphonse loses his entire body while Edward loses his left leg. Edward then sacrifices his right arm to save his brother's soul by attaching it to a metal suit of armor. Edward is then given mechanical prosthetics known as "automail" in place of his missing arm and leg. Upon acceptance into the State Alchemists, he is given the nickname "Fullmetal Alchemist", all while searching with Alphonse for the legendary philosopher's stone, that will repair their bodies.

Goofs

In the manga and anime, Edward Elric (Ryosuke Yamada) is shown as coming up to only the shoulders of the major supporting characters (Roy Mustang, Riza Hawkeye, and Maes Hughes, for example). In this movie, not only is he a lot closer to the heights of the supporting characters, he is also taller than Winry Rockbell (Tsubasa Honda). See more »

A decent movies, but for the fan its a must watch!
20 February 2018 | by zno-30600See all my reviews

Overall, its a decent movies that have many positive aspect, but the cinematography and directing are not as good as the original, pretty good acting, good cg, as any other anime adaptation it would have its story packed short, its a pretty good job for this one though, yet there's lot of good moments in anime left behind, i don't mind with japanese cast even if the anime setting in alternate universe of europe, otherwise it would've been a better portrayal of the character.
