Synopsis

AC: Complete contains a considerable amount of new footage that the original version lacks, as well as roughly a thousand revised scenes. This adds a total of 26 minutes to the film.

Some of the new scenes include a more in-depth look at the Geostigma, Denzel and Kadaj's origins, as well as an extended fight between Cloud and Sephiroth.

The Japanese release of this edition features a new ending track from Kyosuke Himuro called "Safe and Sound", with additional lyrics from My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way. The track replaces Himuro's previous track "Calling" from the original cut of the film. However, in the North American release, the song "Calling" remains, and "Safe and Sound" is absent.

Most people probably remember back in the day when the original Final Fantasy Advent Children (FFAC) movie came out and they watched it. Animation was superb but it just didn't piece together like it should have. Heaps of holes throughout the movie made it hard for non-die-hard fans to enjoy the movie.

Final Fantasy Advent Children Complete (FFACC) is like its title says: "Complete". This movie is what the original should have been.

-STORY- 8/10
Well the story is pretty much the same as the original. However is it by far superior as most major holes have finally been filled. Instead of characters just appearing somewhere, the movie read more

I want to start off by saying that Advent Children Complete is way more satisfying than the cut and spliced original American release of Advent Children.

ACC's animation is gorgeous. I cannot stress this enough. It is incredible to see all of the classic characters emoting and looking like real people instead of strangely colored rectangles. This is especially true for Cloud, a character whose expressions and actions convey more meaning than his dialogue. The soundtrack is a nice edition and it features many sleek remixes of those familiar FF7 jingles. Aerith's and Jenova's themes are especially catchy. The voice acting is satisfactory in both read more

Critic’s Log - Earthdate: November 27, 2013. Review #70: Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.



In 1997, Square Enix released one of the biggest RPG’s for the Sony PlayStation. That game is Final Fantasy VII. To this day, it is a very popular entry in the Final Fantasy series. To me, Final Fantasy VI is my favorite entry in the Final Fantasy franchise. But there is no denying that I was one of the many that enjoyed the seventh installment. This game was so popular that it led to a movie, a sequel game, some prequel games and even a book. Before I talk about the movie, read more

Ok, thins movie doesn't get as much credit as it should due to the first one. This is a must see for anyone not just Final Fantasy fans.

STORY

If you've seen the first one, you know it has alot of fan service by having all their favorite characters in the movie. It still has that and more, it fills all the plot holes and unanswered questions and other things that made you think "wtf?" All in all the story is well told.

ART

CGI graphics have never looked better than they do in Advent Children Complete. Let me just say that Blue-Ray DOES make a difference.

SOUND

Is situational, I read more

Anime: Berserk
FF7 was said to be similar to Berserk in terms of characters with a story alike. Cloud is basically like Guts whereas Sephiroth is to be like Griffith as for example. It's great to see Berserk because Berserk has the best story out of all of the manga/anime and it too has sword fights as good as FF7. The only difference is that Berserk is pure adult oriented than FF7 because of its contents but its worth a try.

Anime: Naruto: Shippuuden
Naruto and Final Fantasy both have Fantasy settings both fantasy and steampunk alike with weapons (swords and others) and magic/supernatural powers. The plot is similar as well as character designs only a selective of them.

Anime: Claymore
After watching both Claymore and FF7, I saw similarities in both series as both are set in fantasy setting with hack and slash action (sword fights). Clare and Cloud once experienced a tragic past where they lost their dear mentor (Teresa and Zack) and after that, they decided to take over their mantle on a journey where they hunt down their mortal enemies (Priscilla and Sephiroth). FF7 and Claymore have high quality animation with good sound effects, dialogue, and action and you will be amazed once you check either of them out.

Anime: Fate/Zero
If you like Fate/Zero, you may want to enjoy FF because FF and Fate are alike. Both have real life setting embedded with fantasy elements. Dark atmosphere envelops the series with serious characters. Swordplay is one thing that you can expect the most because people are big into swords than just guns which too are in both of them. You can enjoy the rivalry of Kiritsugu/Kirei as similar to Cloud/Sephiroth plus the way the develop throughout the series are the same despite having different backgrounds and backstories.

Anime: Bleach: The DiamondDust Rebellion
In the story of Bleach, you get a character named Ichigo Kurosaki, who is a substitute soul reaper with unbelievable strength...

Diamond Dust Rebellion, however, you see a character of the Soul Society named Toshiro Hitsugaya, one of the youngest squad captains on the force, and view his story in a new light of how he got his position. You also get to see that Toshiro has similar qualities to the main character of Advent Children, Cloud Strife--aloof, harboring guilt for past mistakes...

Diamond Dust Rebellion has quite a bit of action, similar to Advent Children. And what's good, you don't  read more
