Critic Reviews for Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no renkinjutsushi)

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (13)

  • Conservative fans might appreciate its craven faithfulness, but adaptation isn't much fun when it's just approximation, and Fullmetal Alchemist behaves less like cinema than cosplay on a cinema budget.

    October 30, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Characters come and go quickly, leaving a feeling that there is too much compression of the multi-episode story.

    October 26, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Following [a] spirited set-up, the story never gains much propulsion or emotional weight.

    October 26, 2017 | Full Review…
  • "Fullmetal Alchemist" is an impressive film to look at (minus the blond wigs), but unfortunately, in terms of narrative, characters, and adapting is a mediocre effort.

    October 27, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Key aspects of storytelling, character building, and presentation are thrown out the window, and the finished product is a frustrating 135 minutes that feels like Chinese water torture.

    October 24, 2019 | Rating: 1/10 | Full Review…
  • Just because the visuals are nice in Fullmetal Alchemist doesn't mean we can overlook the lame costume design, the strained acting, or the piss poor representation of a beloved anime and manga series.
