I would rate Advent Children a 9 out of 10.  The only downside was the synching of voices, and that kind of ruined the movie.  The deleted scenes weren't that great either.

I'll give it a 9 out of 10. The lip sync didn't bother me at all, knowing it was originally a japaneese movie. I kind of expected it. I didn't think they would redo the lip sync animation  for us here in the US. The reason I don't give it a 10 out of 10 was the voice overs weren't that great.

I give it 9/10, the battle sequences were not very realistic, but still I enjoyed them, especially against that Weapon.

I'm giving 8 out of 10. The CGs were fantastic, the feeling of seeing Cloud and co. in the screen in real time is priceless, the soundtrack and listening to some of those from the game were awesome as well. What I disliked was the storyline, which wasn't that much good; it was more like a Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter movie where all you see most of the time is fighting and too little emphasis on the characters. Not to mention that some of the voices were pretty weird for the characters; personally I did not like Cloud's voice in English, Cid's....

Holy Crap I loved the voices! ...Except for Rufus, who grew on me. Reno and Rude are great! I really liked the story, too. I have a bit more of an appreciation for the movie after watching the Distance feature, too. 8.5/10

9/10. The CG were awesome, probably the best I have ever seen. The voice acting was okay as well and the action scene is what brought a lot of people's attention.The storyline might be confusing for those who never played Final Fantasy VII though.

A perfect 10/10 though it deserves more i think. The visuals leave me speechless, the voice-overs are awesome and well cast. I love the story too, there isn't anything not good other than possibly the lip synching w/ the Japanese version. I've seen both, well not entirely the Japanese version, but I love them both but I perfer the American version, the voice-overs are so well done!! In particular I love Cloud, Tifa, Marlene, Vincent, Reno and Rude, Kadaj, Loz, Sepiroth, and  well all of them actually,LOL!!!

The only drawback is a lot of the trailers I saw in 05 had scenes that never made it in, though some are on the deleted section it just isn't enough, but that would only add to this priceless movie by Tetsuya Nomura and the rest of Square Enix. The only other thing that I can see people giving the movie a bad rating is the fact that it is made for fans of FFVII and not everybody. I think that is how it should be, come on, it's not made for family fun night or something for crying out loud like LOTR!!! Anyways I give it a 12/10 just for that.

Final Fantasy AC was an ok movie it did what it was intended to do. it gave the fans a fresh look on the characters and world of final fantasyVII ,and it goes without saying that FF7AC was a beautful movie but in appion if you look beyond the pretty CG graphs the underling story is very rushed and poor in comparson to the deep and rich story of the game but i still enjoyed the movie and think every fan needs to see it, i just wish the story was a little bit better

oh and apperances by Barrent, Yuffie, Red 13 and cat sith was disopinting

sorry for my bad grammer guys im just a dumb varsity spots jock that loves video games

my thoughts exactly it was beatfull to look at but the story was pritty weak compared to the deep and memorable story of the game

clouds voice wasnt great but now that i think about its not realy bad, its just a common male voice, the only voice ackting i realy hated was cids

10/10. being so far from the game, and remenicing of the good old days it made me happy. watching the old FF VII stuff on the first disk was enjoyable. Disk 2 wasn't that  great i agree.

I would rate Advent Children a 9 out of 10.  The only downside was the synching of voices, and that kind of ruined the movie.  The deleted scenes weren't that great either.MasterC2009

Just pirated it this wekend, and, considering the fact that I've never played FFVII, it explained the story well, and was able to keep me interested w/o confusing me w/ past details and explaining FFVII's story at the beginning. The part at the "boss" battle where everyone still around from FFVII came back 2 fight, it was ROXOR-licious!!!

It most certainly wasn't as good as I expected. Although, I did enjoy it a lot :)

But when comparing to the original game, it's not really all that amazing.

But I'll give it an 8 out of 10 because I'm a fanboy all the way :P

To be honest... it let me down. I love Final Fantasy and especially VII, but the story on AC seemed rushed. It seems like the only reason they made it, was to please the fans, but didn't really put too much heart into the story. The graphics however, were awesome, and so was the music, Nubuo did good on this one. The action sequences were good, though very cheesey at times (for instance, when they threw cloud up to Bahamut? wtf went on there?!). Overall, I'd give it a 7/10 I don't recommend it for Non-FFVII players though.

10/10. I can't get enough of this film. I don't need to mention the action sequences. I found the story was very good and well explained (a 1 1/2 hour film keep in mind, the game itself was 40+). The music was excellent too. Great stuff.

Yeah, when they can't change the voices to match the lips then that turns me away a bit from what the Japanese looked like in that department.

10/10 for the Japanese-dubbed, English-subtitled version. It's not that the English dub was bad but... yeah the English dub was bad.

i loved it! the only thing I think they should have done is focus more on the other characters and not so much on Cloud. He was never one of my favorite characters anyways. 9/10

I have to give it a 10/10.... there's just too many good things especially the graphics and reflections and lighting, for just minor differences with the syncroniztion of voices to bring it down... as a whole the movie is amazing def worthy of a 10

One word to sum up = SUBPAR...overall 6/10

CG is nice, fight scene is nice, story is ...... *YAWN*... pretty lacking, music is okay. AC didn't have the depth of the game as its movie sequel. Though some could argue that I shouldn't expect this to be anywhere as deep as the game (which was great but had an underwelming final fifth to it, and not to mention a terrible open to interpretation ending thoguh I did love it), I must say they could have made the whole thing came together alot better. More fighting scenes don't make a good movie. Plots? What plots, there was hardly any. There was no mystery or depth as the game. The ending for this was only okay at best. Hence overall I gave it a 6/10 as a critic. Only the biggest fanboy/girl of the series would give this any higher than 7 at most. It's worth one watch for casuals but otherwise probably worth collecting only if (and I mean IF) you liked FFVII.
