5.0 out of 5 stars Transmutation of a Side-Story, May 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos (Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Blu-ray)
I have to say, when I saw the movie announced I was excited. When I saw it, I had mixed feelings about it at first. As the movie progressed though, it pulled me in and kept me until the very end of the movie credits.

First, you'll notice that the animation style has changed a bit. Let me give you my hypothesis on this. There is so much going on during this movie, action-wise, they had to use a more fluid animation style. That being said, the backdrops are beautiful and it portrays the Fullmetal world perfectly. The characters don't look any different, just the action scenes in the movie, I found, phenomenal.

Second, a warning to parents. This movie is pretty violent. The action in the movie is truly intense. (PG-13-R in some cases). There are fight and chase scenes that you'd expect from FMA, but much more drawn out.

Third, the story is hard to get into... at first. The movie has nothing to do with Brotherhood, it's just in that universe. It's about a brother and sister that get taken away from their home, Milos, into what seems to be a better life. Their parents are skilled Alchemists that are removed from Milos for research. The brother, Ashley, studies his parents Alchemic books and has an understanding of Alchemy... even the taboo. One night, Ashley and his sister, Julia, find that their parents have been attacked. The boy is murdered, and the girl faints at the sight of the murders of Ashley and her parents. Years later, in Amestris, Ed and Al begin hunting down an escapee from a prison who can use an unusual form of Alchemy. As eye witnesses, they are instructed to set off to Creta, a country not far from Amestria, to pursue him. In Creta, they see a beaten people... the Milonians searching for what is called a Sanguine Stone. And there they also find Julia. Prepare for the mystery behind The Sacred Star of Milos.
