This live-action film is almost close to the manga
Edward Elric must find a way out of Gluttony and defeat the monster that created Gluttony, Wrath, Greed, Pride, Lust and others. In doing so, he also hopes to revive his brother Alphonse. Can he do it?
Fullmetal Alchemist doesn’t start where the previous movie ended. The scene continues after a brief moment and even then we don’t see the suspense unfold.
This one, however, shows women in a better light. Here, a “housewife” is a warrior and a big one too. This “housewife” is actually Ed’s strict teacher, Izumi.
This time, the film is more touching than ever. Now that the story is almost developed, this movie has a lot more to offer.
The actors are more or less in the same graph as last time. Ryosuke Yamada as Edward Elric has become more serious. Dean Fujioga has a smaller role as Roy Mustang this time around, but he’s still good in his role this time around.
Unlike the anime, there are hardly any memorable or funny moments in this one. However, it is surely emotional.
In the manga and anime, Ed had a very aggressive relationship with his father Van Holenheim. However, the live-action film fails to establish this.
This movie, however, isn’t a bad watch because once again it gets the message of humanity across beautifully. Although not perfect, the film is a good watch.
Things get intense this time. The Earth is at stake and Ed and his gang are the only ones who can save it.
The movie has the cutest ending ever. Not that you couldn’t see it coming, but it’s still cute to watch.
Fullmetal Alchemist The Final Alchemy is definitely a good watch. The film flows well throughout and ends even more beautifully. There are story loops but those who have followed the franchise know what it is all about. If you’re one of them, go for it!
