Great, even for a non-gamer,
This review is from: Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children (Two-Disc Special Edition) (DVD)
I've always been interested in the Final Fantasy-verses, though I'm not a PS2/X-Box gamer. However, thanks to the internet, I know a relatively decent portion of the FF7 story and was very excited to get my hands on an early subtitled copy of Advent Children about five months ago.
The animation is breathtaking. Gorgeous, amazing, jaw-dropping. It is a complete departure from the blocky FF7 graphics of the game. The voice-acting by the Japanese cast is great, and instills these already beloved characters with even more personality and vibrancy. I ended up loving them all by the end of the film, despite knowing little to nothing about half of them - especially Reno & Rude.
As a non-gamer I had no trouble following along with the story and characters. The story was interesting, but the characters stole the show. What with the hype over this film, as well as the spin-off games in the works, I can only hope to see a sequel in the future.
