Now if you are looking for an animation eye candy, you should see this. Hell, it may even be an understatement using “eye candy” but more of a visual overload.
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children is the next movie to come out from the famous Final Fantasy game franchise. It actually is a whole lot better than the first one Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within.
Unlike the first one, it’s a whole new team of creative guys who did the movie and the story took place 2 years after the events of the popular console game, Final Fantasy VII. Don’t fret if you haven’t played the game to know the basic of the story, I myself wasn’t able to finish FFVII when I was playing it years ago. The start of the movie will give a brief review of what happened before. So expect to see familiar but more mature characters from the game like Cloud, Tifa and Sephiroth.
This movie is truly a visual feast of the senses and a 3D developer’s wet-dream, as the movie is so rich in detail, the physics is just stunning and the fight scenes! Yes the fight scenes will blow you away!
FFVII: Advent Children is fun to watch. But if you’re looking for a deeper storyline you won’t pretty much find it here. It’s really basic, but to hell with it. It captured the essence of the game which it truly is!
