Violence, gore, peril in live-action manga adaptation.

This film may be strong enough to create new Fullmetal Alchemist fans out of those who are unfamiliar with the source material, but it's not impressive enough for existing fans of the property to think that this is a home run, either.

If you're a fan of the franchise, it's worth checking out. It's a watch that pales in comparison to the original, but Fullmetal Alchemist makes for such a good story, even a bad version of it has weight.

Where this version really won me over is with its compelling effects and worldbuilding. It's hard to translate the madcap randomness and outrageousness of anime action into, well, real life, but Sori gives it a spirited go.

Fullmetal Alchemist has some good things going for it, but needs to fix the leaks and sputtering in the narrative's engine. The movie leaves room for a sequel, so maybe we'll get to see a new and improved Hagaren soon.
