Synopsis

A fugitive alchemist with mysterious abilities leads the Elric brothers to a distant valley of slums inhabited by the Milos, a proud people struggling against bureaucratic exploitation. Ed and Al quickly find themselves in the middle of a rising rebellion, as the exiled Milos lash out against their oppressors. At the heart of the conflict is Julia, a young alchemist befriended by Alphonse. She'll stop at nothing to restore the Milos to their former glory—even if that means harnessing the awful power of the mythical Philosopher's Stone.

Dairy farming isn't something that one would normally associate with anime and manga, especially as there's nothing really entertaining about looking after or milking cows. There is, however, a rather improbable connection between these seemingly disparate industries, and nowhere is this more apparent than when dealing with popular franchises - like Full Metal Alchemist.

With a successful manga, two anime adaptations, two movies, six light novels, two series of drama CD's, around a dozen video games across several formats, and a mountain of merchandise ranging from art books to key chains, Arakawa Hiromu's tale of two brothers is undoubtedly one of the most profitable titles of read more

This will be a long one...

Anyone who has seen the trailer or was looking forward to this film should know that this was filler, me included. However, it's still Fullmetal Alchemist (FMA) so while I wasn't looking forward to this as much as other things, I still would've seen it as soon as it was released. I wasn't aware of the runtime (2 hours) until before I saw the film. I generally don't care for films this long but I had some faith simply because it was FMA and the franchise hasn't let me down... until now.

An unfortunate truth about the anime industry is that movies of long-running shounen manga are always trite and unremarkable: uninspired scenarios and forgettable guest characters being among the main reasons why. Though it's not surprising. Why bother thinking up an interesting plot when you know people will be drawn to the popular brand it's based on anyhow?

''Full Metal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos'' – based on the acclaimed manga - is no exception. It's a forgettable if somewhat serviceable adventure flick with some exciting action sequences and a lacking story. No different from the dozens of other films of this type.

Prequels and sequels are known to be tough to do well. They're dependent on and constrained by the original work (because of 'Fate/ Stay Night', we all know that certain characters in 'Fate Zero' have invulnerable plot armor). Still, there have been examples of such works that earn high critical praise. However, there is a third type of '-quel', the 'Interquel'- a story that takes place during an existing story. To my knowledge this type of story has NEVER produced an exceptional work. Not even Fullmetal Alchemist, though 'Sacred Star' does make for a decent time for existing FMA fans.

Both are good additions to the series they belong to and emphasis on fights/battles and you can't go wrong with that

Anime: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Is the movie and anime. Very good.The script with no or few holes.
Really fun. Without appeal and it is not too long.

Anime: Tales of Phantasia The Animation
In both shows there's a lot of action and (as in one the protagonists use magic and in the other alchemy) a lot of special effects. Also, you'll enjoy these anime more if you're already a fan of the series (TOP videogame, FMA:Brotherhood series)

Anime: Naruto Movie 2: Dai Gekitotsu! Maboroshi no Chiteiiseki Dattebayo!
Both are movie sequels based on extremely popular shounen series. Both have animation that can be described as laggy compared to the show but accurately depicts the main feelings and emotions of the original series. Both focus on some unique brand new, movie only characters that go through problems where the main protagonists use their ability to help them get through them. Both are better watched after you've seen a fine chunk of the series (Naruto to about 110 and FMA Brotherhood after about episode 16)
