Product Description

Much anticipated sequel to Square's top selling game 'Final Fantasy VII'. Set two years after the events of Final Fantasy VII, Cloud (Takahiro Sakurai) now leads a solitary life travelling the Planet as a transporter. The office of Strife Delivery Service is located in 7th Heaven, which also functions as an orphanage for children stricken with Geostigma. Three new enemies make an appearance in 'Advent Children': Kadaj (Shotaro Morikubo), their leader, is in his teens, while Yazoo (Yuji Kishi) and Loz (Kenji Nomura) are known to be in their twenties. In them, Cloud sees shadows of Final Fantasy VII's fallen hero, Sephiroth. The three are after 'Mother' and refer to Cloud as their 'Brother'. Having obtained Jenova's head, their purpose appears to be to start another Reunion. Vincent (Shogo Suzuki) suspects that with Jenova's cells, they may even be able to create another Sephiroth.

From Amazon.co.uk

The question facing any viewer of the Japanese CG feature Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children is: do you have to know the games on which it’s based in order to understand the film? And the answer is: it certainly helps. But even complete novices (i.e., most parents) in the Final Fantasy world will find some entertainment in its wealth of fantasy-based action, and the animation never fails to astonish. Picking up two years after an epic battle between the forces of good (represented by brooding soldier Cloud) and evil (Cloud’s former general, Sephiroth), FFVII opens in the devastated city of Midgard, whose youthful occupants suffer from a ghastly disease known as Geostigma. A trio of brothers arrives with what appears to be a cure for the plague, but their gesture conceals a more sinister purpose: to revive Sephiroth and bring about the end of the world. Cloud and his companions must once again rise to the occasion to stop the siblings and the revived Sephiroth from unleashing total destruction. Complex and self-referential to the point of occasional incomprehension, Final Fantasy VII will definitely be most appreciated by fans of the game series, but if others can look past the numbing dialogue and frenetic action (which is a bit too intense for very young children), the film offers a carefree and action-packed viewing experience. The two-disc set contains the original Japanese language version of the film as well as an English-dubbed edition (Rachel Leigh Cook and Christy Carlson Romano, among others, provide the vocal talent) and a version edited for the Venice Film Festival. A 30-minute featurette that recaps the Final Fantasy story up to VII, as well as a making-of documentary, deleted scenes, and promotions for future Final Fantasy VII games and products round out the extras. --Paul Gaita

Although this film doesn't have the most complex story in the world, and what little story it DOES have is likely to confuse anyone who hasn't played the game, this film is stunning to watch.
I purchased the Japanese DVD when it was released and the quality of the CGI is mindblowing. Many people have seen online trailers or bootleg copies, but the quality doesn't compare to the original DVD where the images are crisp and clear and as close to perfection as CGI can currently get.
Even if FFVII means absolutly nothing to you, this is a movie you can watch for sheer aesthetic value! The images are lovely to watch, the battles beautifully choreographed...I stared in rapture the first time I watched it, and I don't even understand that much Japanese!
(And even if the story isn't that complex by FFVII standards it still beats the complexity of most American movies!)

I got this on import from Japan when it was released, and my reaction to the quality was something like... "wow..." followed by more wows, until I finally got into watching the movie. For anyone who has seen the movie already, this is the new "complete" edition of the film with an additional 30 minutes added to it. In a way, it is a sort of Director's Cut - and it flows a lot better than the original release. The additional scenes are all fantastic, and it begs the question why they were taken out in the first place.

Usually I am not partial to these re-releases with additional scenes, I just feel that they should release the whole film the first time. This time, however, it is re-released on blu-ray so it makes it worth the re-purchasing for me. The picture is absolutely crystal clear. There's no snow in any of the scenes, it is just perfect. The blacks are deep, and the whites are really bright, and they fade from one to the other with elegant ease. The sound is what you will have come to expect from Blu-Ray - perfect, Nobuo Uematsu's soundtrack is absolutely stunning during the heavy action scenes.

If you haven't seen the movie then it follows the story of Cloud (following from the Playstation game Final Fantasy VII). Two years have passed since the city of Midgar was left to ransom and to stand as a testament to the sacrifices made by friends in order to bring peace. However an illness is spreading fast, putting thousands of peoples lives at risk, and so Cloud, who walked away from being the hero before to a life of solitude, is asked to step forward once more to fix the wrongs of the world. Old friends and enemies alike are reintroduced, and the film is full of action and absolutely stunning animation that you have come to expect from Square Enix.

I took the advice of the people who have reviewed this movie saying "you don't have to be familiar to the series to enjoy this movie" and decided to purchase it to watch over Xmas. To a certain degree they're correct, but only just!!
As I watched the Blu-Ray I was able to pick up what was going on and could just about understand the storyline - however different characters turn up throughout the movie and I just did not know who they were.
In regards to the storyline - previous knowledge of the series is not 100% necessary, however in regards to the characters - it's not essential, but be prepared to wonder who the hell these people are?!?!!?
In regards to the Blu-Ray quality - At times the picture & sound quality astounded me, I was very impressed.
The bottom line - Is it worth buying if you're not a fan? Possibly, but only to watch once. My copy ended up on eBay!!

Simply one of the best CGI movies I have ever seen. A beautiful work of art.

All the movie's locations are modeled in wonderful, unique detail and have a story of its own to tell like all good paintings. Most of the stories behind each location will be known by players of the original Final Fantasy VII game or its fans but there are also a few that is unknown to all.

One good example is the new city of Edge. A place of which we can see is built completely from scrap metal with its odd looking structures and transparent metal frames standing upright everywhere. The streets are bustling with people dressed in plain simple clothes painted in dull shades of grey. Vehicles drive among the crowds of adults with no sense of organization whatsoever, while abandoned orphans sit in the side alleys, some in bandages stained in an ominous black substance. No tree, flower or even a blade of grass can be seen apart from the looming ruins of Midgar in the background. An air of sullen despair lingers.

Other locations include the tranquil church, the ancient Forgotten City filled with dimly glowing white trees and the great ruins of Midgar itself, with the giant broken cannon standing at its centre.

Wishing to add extra depth and meaning to what you see, the staff also added in symbolic objects such as the angel statue that would appear now and then between scenes. What they symbolize is up to the viewer to ponder about.

CGI enthusiasts will notice the great amount of work the Visual Works staff put into this movie as separate teams were responsible for the simulation of clothing and the way hair flows. Materials look authentic and reflect the way they should such as the smooth reflective look leather clothing has, with wrinkles etched into it.
