So I finally saw the movie...

Overall: 4/10
I was not a huge fan of Shamballa, but Shamballa was much better than this. The premise was all right, but there are so many things they could have done with this movie that they didn't do.

What is the point of having Mustang, Hawkeye, and Winry come along if they weren't really going to do anything? Winry fixes Ed's arm, big deal. Mustang lights a tiny fire near the end. Ooooo.

Some parts of the movie I just found laughable. When Ed told Julia to throw the stone into the magma I couldn't help but think of Frodo in Lord of the Rings. And how the blood from two people could possibly fill that entire network of tubes around the city with gallons upon gallons of blood is beyond me. Yoki version 2.0 failed to impress. And the villain couldn't have been more typical..."I will destroy and create a new world..."

The hint at Al x Julia at the end was a stretch too. I don't think their earlier interactions particularly justified it.

I would have been more interested in the country of Creta, the history or politics of the current relationship between the two countries, but this was not explored either.

The movie lacked a certain element of melancholy that is characteristic of FMA. Most of the movie contained a sense of urgency, but that is different from emotion.

As for the pros... some of the action scenes were not bad, like the train scene. The three-dimensional transmutation circle was pretty cool, although it wasn't explained why the 3D circle was in any way different or better than the 2D ones that were used to make philosophers stones.

Overall, for me this was a pretty big letdown. I do recognize that the decision to do a spin-off rather than a prequel or sequel does limit what they could do with it in terms of character development or plot, but maybe that's why they should have decided differently. It would be too bad if this really was the end of the FMA franchise, ending on such an anti-climactic note.
