Two years ago, the world was changed forever. The young Cloud Strife and his band of friends may have defeated Sephiroth and thwarted his plan to crash a giant meteor into the Earth, but this victory was not without great cost. The highly populated city of Midgar was nearly ripped apart in the conflict. Fortunately, many of the city's citizens were able to evacuate to safety, and in the years afterward have formed a new home called Edge.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children revolves around Cloud and Tifa as they try to make new lives for themselves, as well as for those around them, in this new city. Together they run a courier service, and tend to their mutual friend Barret’s adopted daughter Marlene and a young orphan by the name of Denzel. Denzel, Cloud, and scores of children are suffering from a mysterious new illness called "Geostigma."

The children of the city have one other threat looming over their heads—a trio of powerful men are kidnapping infected kids for unknown reasons. Cloud is determined to save these young ones, not only from Geostigma, but from the kidnappers as well. He has no idea, however, that these men share a link to his old enemy, Sephiroth, and Cloud’s quest to vanquish them will bring him back into conflict with the demons of his past. If there is any hope in conquering these threats, it lays within the bonds of friendship between Cloud and his allies who saved the world once, and now must do so again.


The film received the Honorary Maria Award at the Sitges Film Festival on October 15, 2005. The film was also awarded the Best Anime Feature at the 2007 American Anime Awards.

Mixed Feelings
The movie is average, but certainly better than the game it was based on(And I say this as a full-fledged fan of the FF and JRPG genres) . Another movie based on a game, something like Tekken Blood Vengence. The fights are typical JRPG. If the figure had been cut in half, it would have stood for another hour.
And although the fights can be spectacular, on the other hand everything else makes no sense. Characters jump from left to right as if I were watching Transformers The Movie 1986. The only difference was that Transformers The Movie 1986 had music to match the situation. In ...

Man this was fucking awful.

FF7 was great, so I thought this one would be a pretty safe bet. Looking back I probably shouldn't have expected anything better, but for some reason, I figured this one would at least have the potential to not completely suck. There's a ton of stuff you could've done with the idea that would've been awesome---for example, you could set the story like 20 years in the future and have Cloud be a fat butthole who runs a McDojo in the middle of Virginia, make him get into fights with dark sorcerers (his landlord) or whatever, maybe even get Nicolas Cage ...
