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.

Not seen the anime so for me a great movie
21 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

I had nothing to base it on - so for me, compared to Hollywood movies where the ideas seem predictable this seemed new and fresh.

I guess if you're familiar with the anime (which I only found out about coming to IMDB) then maybe the good ideas are all straight copies of that. But I dont think that matters to the majority who will not be familiar with it.

When I first started watching it - I couldn't and still cant place exactly where this is supposed to be set. I felt some theft of Harry Potter in the scenes of steam trains chugging through what looks like the English country side, there was even a British phone box at one point. All the lettering of place names were in English but the film was subtitled. So I went from expecting some weird knock off of Harry Potter and his spell casting but then found the premise of the story much more interesting.

Sometimes you want to shout at the screen - when there's impossibly long periods where heroes are confronted by an enemy and stand around not doing anything for what seems like hours. But I think that probably plays into the anime style.

So not my favourite movie ever - but definitely watchable, modern, good effects, nice interesting story line.
