Two years after saving the world from a cataclysmic event, the members of the activist organization Avalanche have gone their separate ways. Tifa Lockhart opens a new bar, and her childhood friend Cloud Strife starts up a motorcycle-based courier service. Although most of their former allies have fallen out of touch, Cloud and Tifa live in fragile peace with their two young wards Marlene and Denzel.

Their life together begins to crumble as a contagious plague and overwhelming grief pull Cloud away from his newfound family. While distancing himself through his work, Cloud is attacked by three silver-haired figures in black uniforms who bear a passing resemblance to his bitter rival, Sephiroth. As the antagonistic trio stalks Cloud and brings harm to his loved ones, the former mercenary struggles against his own demons while fighting to protect his family and prevent the will of Sephiroth from returning to the planet.

I grew up with Nintendo only. No PlayStation. So I didn't play FF7 until I was an adult. I have no nostalgia for it the way I do for Zelda and the like. That said I did watch this movie shortly after spending several months trying to 100% the game (that chocobo breeding stuff takes forever,) so I wasn't a stranger to the source material.

If you haven't played the game you're going to be confused. If you have played the game you're still going to be confused, but for different reasons. It's a weird story, but I guess that's not surprising considering it's Final Fantasy. ...

Oh Final Fantasy VII... how you fill me with despair. You know, I really do like Final Fantasy VII.

The Lifestream is the name we call the living flow of energy that courses throughout the planet. It flows through every living thing, from the tiniest ant to the tallest tree, and even through people like you and me. When a person is born, they come from the Lifestream... And when people die, their souls return to it. Unfortunately, as it turns out, the Lifestream can also be harvested. The Shinra Company, the people who first discovered this, found a way to convert it into Mako energy. It powered our technology, lit our lights, and made our lives comfortable, ...
