The incomprehensible back story didn't dim my enjoyment much. The movie is a crackerjack audio-visual thrill ride.

Fans, go be with your people. Others, approach cautiously.

The widescreen canvas is an improvement over television's limited expanse. But if you're not among the indoctrinated, don't bother.

This is a very intelligent, well-plotted story - and my hunch is that we have not seen the last of our heroes.

At some point you have to ask: When are fantasy fans going to tire of heroes and villains throwing bolts of energy at each other? Give it a rest already!

Soporific exposition culminates in a visually chaotic final act that makes "Tintin'' look downright restrained.

The movie is gorgeously animated and has many powerful images and ideas.

Exhilarating, intelligent and compelling with plenty of surprises and dazzling animation.

The Sacred Star of Milos manages to be an entertaining and faithful expansion on the original material while being inconsequential to it.

This is a gripping mystery in its own right, and even retains the original Japanese voice actors (with subtitles).

Audience Reviews for Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos

A little more violent than what I'm used to in the FMA series and a little cheesy to be honest. Maybe because the writers had to rush through things as they only had roughly 2 hours to tell this story as opposed to an entire series. I think this was the reason I was iffy on watching an FMA movie and I think my experience backs it. The action was great but some of the animation, like the characters' hair, look sloppily done. Perhaps my expectations are too high. The villain reminded me of the villain from the Cowboy Bebop movie but the animation was so much more fluid and well-done and the violence didn't just come out of nowhere. You were expecting it. Entertaining but it pales in comparison to both FMA series.
