I agree with Kaarosu!
The plot was awesome and I can't believe that people are saying that it was bad.
Sure they could have developed the character's relationships a little better (such as Cloud and Tifa), but it would be unfair to say that the whole movie was 'bad' just because they skipped a few minor details.
I have also read comments saying that the action was bad and 'unoriginal'. Gun swords plus Huge and awesome looking sword battles is what Final Fantasy is all about! Final Fantasy's sword designs are ORIGINAL (Bleach even copied the huge swords design and so did many other popular animes of today). The action of Final Fantasy does have similar aspects to Matrix, however, to say it was EXACTLY the same and 'unoriginal' would be a HUGE exaggeration. Not every character in Final Fantasy uses a gun (unlike in the Matrix) and the EPIC sword battles look cooler than just the ordinary gun man vs gun man fights. Final Fantay also has the character's '(magic) ability skills' which differs it from the Matrix ( it also looks really cool). A good example of this would be Cloud's seven sword technique, which is also my favourite part of the movie (as Cloud pwns Sephiroth! >:D). Another thing that I find cool is how the fights between the protagonists and the antagonists usually tear up the palce as they're fighting, making it not just another boring sword fight. The awesome motorbike plus sword fight scene also differs it from the Matrix's (all gun users) fight scenes. The heavy sword clash action is what Final Fantasy fans love! Most of the people i know (here in Australia) saw the movie just for the epic battle between Cloud and Sephiroth and 99% of them said it was the best sword battle they had ever seen. In adition to this, the awesome graphics of the movie and the action kept me interested through every second of it.
One aspect that I agree with ParaParaJMo is about Denzel. He is a total waste of space and time. Square Enix should have kicked him out and focued more on the important and awesome characters; such as Cloud, Tifa, Sephiroth, Vincent, Yuffie etc.
Geostigma is explained in much more detail in Final Fantasy Advent Children Complete. However, in the original Final Fantasy Advent Children I would have to agree with ParaParaJMo. In the first movie, Geostigma does sound like 'a stupid plot device that really did nothing to impact the movie overall'. However if you watch the remake of Final Fantasy Advent Children (which is Final Fantasy Advent Children Complete), it DOES impact the whole movie!
Overall, Final Fantasy Advent Children an AWESOME action movie that deserves a 10/10!
