    The Making of Advent Children, is easily the best of all the features. In lieu of a commentary track, this is the only bridge between fans and the creation of this beautiful work.
  2. If you're a fan of Final Fantasy VII, then this is the next best thing to a full-fledged sequel. If you aren't a fan, you'll still probably agree that it's an amazing visual experience.

    It's an amazing technical feat that Nomura's team have pulled off here, and an impressive first foray into the alien world of movie making. Coming from a team that's used to making CG cinemas less than five minutes long, Advent Children is a surprisingly auspicious debut. Here's hoping they do it again.
  4. The quintessential gaming flick it is not, but Advent Children still satisfies, both to fans and casual viewers.
  5. A must-see for fans who want a glimpse at what happens when the game ends. However, I suggest it as a rental.

Fantastic battles, interesting storyline and very realistic characters. Also music is great, Nobuo Uematsu really done good job. I think you should watch it, even if you see words "Final Fantasy" first time in your life. Beautiful show. Expand

For those who played through the game (Final Fantasy VII), Advent Children is as evocative and engaging as anything, seeing beloved characters fully visualised in photo-realistic CGI was worth the price of admission alone for many.

    As for the new director's cut, I believe that maybe some aspects are more clear but is also filled with a lot of exposition and is slower, so I prefer the original version better.

    The Good:
    Amazing visuals
    -Exciting action -Does well in slightly extending the FF7 storyline without breaking the magic of it -Good

    -Good music overall
    The Bad:
    -Writing leaves something to be desired
    -Most of the English voice actors are acceptable but others(Tifa, in particular) will make you cringe
    -Laws of physics are defied slightly too much to be believable(I realize it is an alternate reality, but still...)
    -Sephiroth doesn't take over the world. ;)
