Final Fantasy Advent Children Complete (FFACC) is like its title says: "Complete". This movie is what the original should have been.
Well the story is pretty much the same as the original. However is it by far superior as all major holes have finally been filled. Popular questions arisen when watching the original movie include: "Why is this character here?" or "What just happened?" or "Who the heck is this guy?"
In FFACC most of these questions have finally been answered. Instead of a character appearing somewhere, the movie actually shows them getting there (or planning to). Instead of vague events that are hard to understand, these events are now in detail and explained properly. Instead of random characters appearing out of the blue and becoming main characters, we get to see their background. Denzel's background for example is now explained and hes not just some random kid who lives with Tifa for no reason.
There are now enough explanations in the movie for a person who has never played Final Fantasy 7 to actually understand what is going on. Although having played the game would still be recommended.
Only major flaw that remains in plot now is that Cid, Barret, Yuffie and the rest of the gang were once again very abruptly introduced. (Also a minus on characters)
Question: What could be more amazing than the animation in FFAC?
Answer: FFAC animation in HD.
Not only was all of FFACC animation remastered to look spectacular in HD, but with the addition of many new scenes which were made with current-day technology, the movie is once again the top of the top in the animation industry. Anyone who doesn't watch this movie in HD has no idea what they are missing out on.
The sound effects in the movie were perfect.
The music was once again perfect as expected of Final Fantasy music.
Dialogue was great. Cloud finally has more than 2 lines of dialogue as do all other characters. Only problem is that Red XIII still has a single line of dialogue at the end of the movie. (Possibly done for the novelty effect)
Finally characters have been explained properly. Denzel is no longer some random kid who teleported into the world of Final Fantasy. All the characters have more screentime now. Zack now plays a larger role which should satisfy Crisis Core fans.
Major flaw in characters was that the three "baddies" seemed to have had a very vaguely explained entry into the movie. Still was an improvement over the original movie however.
Being the big Final Fantasy fan that I am, I very much enjoyed this movie. Anyone who isn't particularly interested in Final Fantasy would likely still find this movie quite enjoyable though.
This movie was exactly what the orignal movie should have been. Most flaws have been erased and there is plenty of new material to satisfy anyone who has already seen the original movie. A must-watch for all Final Fantasy fans and is highly recommended to everyone else!
-FFACC has roughly 30 minutes of additional content compared to the original movie. The location of the new content is not all bunched up but rather spread throughout the entire movie.
-All scenes have been remastered to look great in HD.
-Denzel actually helps out now and isn't a waste of pixels. read more

Story: Well, I've seen powerpoint presentations that had more plot than this anime...even a video of someone playing tetris may very well have more plot. Unfortunately for this anime, its "plot" was the best thing about it.
Art: Seems as though the developers took every single opportunity they had to NOT move the characters...not move anything in fact. The beginning credits seem good as they come in and then you realise that they just disappeared. No fade. No nothing. Complete crap. You'd think that the developers could have at least not screwed up the opening credits. But no...they did.
Sound: Classical music? Riiight...at least they could have picked the right music, but no, they picked music during the combat that made it seem like the main character (wait, there are characters in this?) was dancing with the alien. Completely out of place music, none of which was made by the developers of this anime. All free stuff that can be downloaded off the net. This anime brings shame to this music.
Enjoyment: Well, no matter how sad of an excuse this is for an anime, it still has some good points, such as...wait, no it doesn't. Also, you'd think that this anime is worth watching just to laugh at how shit it is, but it's actually worse than that. There is nothing to laugh at except when some random girl gets her head blown off. In fact, that is the only reason I am giving this an enjoyment rating of 4.
Overall: Completely terrible anime. Only anime that is worse than this shit is Girls Bravo with english dub. read more
