Eh I hate posting as a guest, but I cant remember my account or password here (its been that long)

I really thought the movie sucked, and thats harsh of me to say being a huge fan of the Anime and all. Most characters that were on screen had very few or no lines at all. For example, when Wrath was introduced in the movie, he said nothing. Then every time he was on screen, he said nothing. Then finally when the fight with Gluttony happened, he may have had oh - 10 lines - then died.

Also, what the hell happened to Gluttony? He wasn't exactly a mutant with six heads last time we left him. Though - I'm glad they followed up on Envy and how he turned into a dragon while passing through the gate.

But yeah, so many things left unanswer, and so many plotholes left unfilled. It was as-if towards the end they just didn't care anymore. They released a masterpiece of a series and let it all come crashing down at the end, just so they'd never have to deal with it again.

I don't know how to end this rant, but heres a few things that got me:

The Main Enemy - Who the hell was she? And how the hell was she able to use Alchemy "just like that" after entering the gate? Especially at a level that was on par with that of Ed or Al's Alchemy. Why would she gain knowledge of something that took Ed and Al years to learn over the course of oh - five minutes?

Gluttony - ?

Winry - Plot device? "Heres your arm and Leg" and then shes despressed because Ed's gone at the end. Everyone was hoping for some kind of Ed/Winry love interaction - even the slightest. It is in the style of fullmetal alchemist to keep all the mushy love crap at a minimum and I guess you could say they did that, even though some fans arent pleased (I didn't care, I just wondered if it was ever going to happen with the constant "plot suggestions" of the series)

The Other Al - (Backstory/Guess). This Al was suffering from a cough the entire series and was set to die soon. When he coughed up blood I was lead to believe he was more or less facing the same effect as Izumi - only it was Ed's fault. Ed had brought his brother back, perhaps that removed the "Other" Al's organs in order to create Al back in his old world? No elaboration was given though.

Blah blah blah... this could go on forever. Yeah Movie was a 2.5/5 at best.

I rate it good.

But on a scale of 1 - 10, I rate it a 8.5 / 10.

Why? Because I didn't like it how it mostly talked about WWII and the Nazi's and all the other stuff. I thought it just didn't feel Hagaren.

But oh-meh-gawd I love Movie!Aru! He is so adorable! And how he tries to look like his older brother.

The ending did dissapoint me though. There was NO conclusin (sp?) what so ever. Like the brothers got back together and all that jazz, but are they going to even try to get back to the Hagaren world or what?

So many questions unanswered...

I voted for being confused, but I did love the movie and have pre-ordered it (I must love it to pay that much).

I didn't like the ending, there are no real answers especially not for the military. Why does Rose have all those children why is Armstrong there and why are they still with Pinako?

What became of Roy once he had become his old Mustang self?

What the heck are the Elric brothers up to? Are they quite content now they have each other or will they try to get home.

Why the heck was Winry left all alone? Poor girl, bet she feels like a right idiot for waiting all that time.

I almost wish there was another movie, but I doubt it will come to pass. i understood everything, I was just diappointed that they seemed to leave so many things open-ended. (Especially on the military side of the story. I want to know if Roy and Riza got together darnnit! >.<) For the plotline presented though, it was pretty decent.

Anywaysee, I've just watched the movie again today, some parts are soo sad, it makes want to go and sob my eyes out! I mean, Al Heiderich, Hohenheim and Wrath all die and Winry and Ed will never get to see eachother again, and I personally think Ed should've told Al/Mustang to tell Winry something else, besides just "thanks for the automail" although it was really sweet when they happily reunited. ;_;

Hello, topic creator here.

Just got the movie yesterday night, and watched parts of it today. To tell you the truth, I didn't sit through to watch the whole thing (saving that for when I see a friend a few weeks later), but from what I got, I rate it good ( B ).

There were some confusing points but somehow, it felt "right" for me. The part with Wrath was especially moving. sad.gif


The subs weren't very good though, guess I'll have to wait until a better sub/American DVD comes out...

Ifelt the same exact way. There were things left unsaid....holes not filled. You see many of the characters from the anime...but it doesn't go on to talk about them that much....as if they were just ordinairy people. They didn't explain what happened to Gluttony....and who was that woman trying to destroy shambala? The Ed/Win thing was left as if it were nothing...she really didn't even play a MAJOR part in the movie. They didn't explain the story about Noa very well either. I would give this movie a 6/10...only because it had to do with the anime...and I loved the anime.

Actually, it was established that the reason for alter!Al's illness was Tuberculosis, not anything from the Hagaren World. Keep in mind that TB was hugely rampant during this time in history, ESPECIALLY in Germany, Poland, and Russia during WWI and WWII.

Here's an exerpt from Wikipedia on the disease: "[Alternate name for the disease] Consumption (TB seemed to consume people from within with its symptoms of bloody cough, fever, pallor, and long relentless wasting)."

The Gate gave Ed the ability to suddenlly be able to clap his hands to use alchemy I don't see why she couldn't learn alchemy just by passing thru it. I believe the gate is just a collection of knowledge of those who died. Those who pass through it get a bunch of knowledge pressed into their heads.
Gluttony ate alot of The perfect pholisphers stone which was Al. So I guess you could say the power of all those souls mutated him.
Wrath wanted to get back with Izumi and help Al open the gate. What more does he need to say? o.O
For Winry we have the manga which has more EdxWinry then the anime ever saw.
Oh wait it might be that I watched the Sub version and you didn't. meh

I'd rate it as Good. I liked the story and how my questions of episode 51 were answered in the movie. Not to mention every battle scene in the movie was executed and animated well! I just wish they explained the begining segment of the movie better, and I do feel sorry for Winry sad.gif . Overall it was a great movie, probably the best animated movie I've seen. I'm just bummed that they can't make a sequal or OVA to Conqueror of Shambala, since Ed technically isn't the 'FullMetal Alchemist" anymore.

EDIT: Only gripe about the movie was it's length. Bones should have made it a lot longer considering this is their last time working with the FullMetal Alchemist series. Because of it's short length, there were some scenes that were "too convient" for Ed. (Like escaping that Nazi Socialist Bar)

Well Actually the begining was a prelude to the end were he frist heard about the uranium bomb. Then he heard it was in our world so he now wants to find it and get rid of it.
