Thank you so much for doing this Sycia, although I do wish I could have resisted the urge to read this. Anyways here are some impressions of this summary and some other reviews I've read.
The Ending: Somehow Bones managed to get the brothers back together and not make it cheesy happily ever after. I personally like that Ed and Al will stay in our world to do whatever good that they can in a world that will soon be at war. With all the hardships they are about to face, at least they have each other and that is a major consolation.
Hohenheim is still a good guy. I was kind of worried after the last episode when he was talking with members of the Thule society.
I am happy with all the FMA world' character's ending: Winry is depending on herself and I expect Roy taking charge again and being supported by the others (including Riza) is Roy's ending.
Alter Hughes in the group that started the nazis. What the.... Okay I totally predicted that wrong I thought there would be no way that Hughes would be a nazi. Well my only consolation is he isn't the real Hughes and from the summary it doesn't seem the alter characters are very much like their counterpart. But maybe alter Hughes will be a good guy because of alter Glacier.
Al putting his soul in the armor. How on earth can he do this. What is the equivalent exchange?
And I am sorry that all the romance fans are disappointed but frankly FMA was always about Ed and Al. Besides there is always the manga where there is more time for romance to develop.
I couldn't read the whole summary, way to dizzying, but I do have one question: Did Dante appear in the movie? At all? I know I read some stuff about Gluttony when I was skimming it, but what happened to Dante? And what happened to Envy? The last I remember reading about him was when he kills Hoheneim.

god the ending is so unsatisfying and leaves PLOT HOLES DAMNIT!
i really doubt that the ending dialogue [i.e. Ed saying that this is their world now] proved to be a *conclusion* to the entire series. BONES definetely has something cooking up their sleeves. I mean, since the FMA fandom is like, freaking huge, they would not just drop the series and not make more money off of us rabid fans!
i demand a sequel!
and wtf, they didn't even resolve Roy's ending??!!
In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth.
Winry had big case, remember? There were Ed's new automail parts, leg and arm. He said - Hey, I'm growing, and she said - I knew how much you'll grow. So leg and arm fitted perfectly. What is love. Amd, also, when Ed came back, Winry held him, and he blushed... that was one of the best scenes. Also, Ed had dream about saying something to Winry, like, it was nice, when he said her name in dream (EdWin fans crying in joy )
At least something satisfying happened with them.
How tall is Ed supposedly in the movie? And is Roy,Riza,Winry,and Hommneim alive? Does anybody have a height chart? And did Envy finally get killed? And what happened to Ed and Al?
Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return.To obtain, something of equal value must be lost,that is alchemy's first law of equivalent exchange.
