I just saw it and its much much better than the original! They added 30mins, and almost all of that time went to set the story right. There is no more crazy plotholes, everything is well put, you always knows what's going on, event that 2 turks are OK now. Battle between Sephiroth and Cloud is redone toward the end, Cloud got owned big time.

Anyways, great job Square you managed to salvage AC in my eyes.

I watched this a few days ago and was rather impressed. My opinion of the original Advent Children was of a mindless pure fanservice fest that was worth it for the pretty visuals and nonsensical yet fun fights.

But with this remake, they made the movie a lot more solid plot-wise. The whole thing just flows better and has much more cohesiveness. Some changes I particularly enjoyed:

And of course the new scenes looked gorgeous.

I know the original movie is already licensed, but just to be on the safe side, please use spoiler tags in this thread until a this version of the movie has been subbed.
And uh about this, the Japanese release of the movie comes with the English dub. >_>

Yeah. Though I still hope someone does release it with English subtitles, because I kinda prefer the original cast. Though the English dub is still pretty good. Though it was clear that some of the actors had forgotten how their voice should be for their role, due to how long how it's been since the original Advent Children.

Saw it yesterday. Wow, wasn't expecting that. It's actually pretty good, specially if you saw the first movie, cause this version is ACTUALLY a movie, not just a bunch of fanservice fights.

There's a lot of remade scenes. The majority of the movie was remade. It's easier to pick the original scenes. I like the fact that Kadaj's gang got a little more development, besides the "show and fight" part, Yazoo got lines! Liked the Denzel plot too, finally we know WHY he's with Cloud and Tifa, after all. Also, the geostigma looks like a REAL disease.

The english dub was pretty cool and the quality of the blu ray is unbelievable.

And that's it. The movie is damn better than the first one, everything is better, the fights were remade, the story is not bull crap(they make seem Kadaj even got a PLAN besides showing up and fighting) and Cloud whinying has its reasons, so i like it pretty much and i think that every fan of the game should see.

Yeah that was probably my favorite thing about Complete. The scenes with Denzel and the girl with moogle doll were very moving and really showed just how cruel the reality of those infected with Geostigma was. Which in turn also makes Cloud's self-isolation more tolerable and understandable.

Has anyone watched the Denzel OVA yet? Just wonder if we should talk about it here, or make a new thread for it.

I doubt there's a need for that, unlike Zack and Last Order, I don't think people really care all that much about Denzel. No offense to those that do, heh.

But yeah I've seen some screenshots and it does look good at least, pretty much the same quality of animation as Last Order. Just wish they had picked another character to focus it on. An OVA about the Turks for example would be pretty nice.

What ever happened to Cissnei? Doesn't tell you in the game. I was hoping that this being post Crisis Core movie, would at least give her a cameo.
oh well...

You're right. We can't say that it was for the sake of the original story, cause they changed so much that it was an almost different movie. In the end, Crisis Core's only achievement in the show was to give an insightful view of Cloud's relationship with Zack at the time of Advent Children.

Yeah probably not big enough to start a new thread. Too bad we dont have an entire section for Final Fantasy yet tho, then maybe we can have several character apreciation threads. I cannot wait to play Versus XIII now, since watching this I've been checking out trailers of the games. It's gorgeous. ^^

Anyone noticed how half the movie was full up upscale scenes? They were actually rendered in 1080p. Only the new scenes were. That really got to me. I can't believe Square Enix got so lazy. You'll notice it most in Kadaj's hair; it's like alias to hell and back.

I'm such a wuss I still teared up every time Aerith appeared...

Was nice to rewatch it again though especially with all they added...I was expecting a small amount of content to justify trying to resell this again and nothing more...Glad I was wrong.
