Movie Reviews

Enter Greed {The New Sin Remix}
Brigader General Hughes | Virginia | 01/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, mark your calanders. This is taking a turn for the best. If you didn't buy the last DVD, or at least watched it, you were missing alot. However, the ass kicking you love is back. New characters introduced:
-Greed-the ultimate shield-a new sin, or rather an old one...
-Dante-teacher's teacher-the wise lady of the forest, who lives in a mansion!!
-Archer-the sadistic lt.col.-he has a plan, and will stop at nothing to complete it...
-Wrath-many secrets behind this sin-buy the DVD, I can't reveal it now!

Also, Lyra and Tucker wil be reappearing!! That's good for the fans of those characters....

Also, back on that Alchemist's Gate topic from my last review. If you ever wondered why the pocketwatch and tansmutation circle were not thee when Ed transmuted in the very first DVD, buy this DVD...."

"As Ed and Al are preparing to leave Yock Island, they can't get over the feeling that someone was watching them during their stay there. They were right, as a young child comes walking out of the forest and his alchemical power might just be the most powerful that the brothers have ever seen. The boy is able to take on the attributes of any matter he touches without a transmutation circle. Naturally enough, the brothers are suspicious of him because the encounter seems a tad too convenient. But their master Izumi takes him in and treats him as a normal child. When the military finds out about his existence, they'd like to get their hands on the strange boy as well. Meanwhile Mustang and his fellow officers continue their search for Scar and track him down to a remote outlying slum, only to find themselves in danger of starting another civil war, with the help of the Homunculi. Humans are so easy to manipulate.

This eighth volume of Fullmetal Alchemist brings the show back to its original theme, that is, of trying to bring loved ones back from the dead, and the evil it brings into existence. Or really not evil, but amorality. The humans in the show bend alchemy and Nature to do their bidding but they don't even know what they're manipulating! Izumi's backstory as presented in this volume is really involved and I almost wish there was another title devoted just to her character. Hopefully, she will be fleshed out even more in future volumes. A small problem that I had with this installment is that the creators are beginning to juggle too many storylines. Yes, all of these characters seem to be connected somehow, but it feels as though the plot is becoming diluted. Whereas before Ed and Al were the main focus, now you have all these Homunculi running around, Mustang and Scar in a prelude to rebellion, Winry, and now this kid, and then Izumi. You can't focus on anyone now. The plot is beginning to control the characters rather than vice versa. Don't get me wrong, it's still an excellent show, but it's starting to become cluttered."

"This part of the series marks a turning point in the show. The show from here is packed with intense storyline! We find out who the stange kid on Yock Island really is, and more about Izumi's past. These episodes are a must have!"
