Final Fantasy VII means a lot of things to a lot of people. For me…it’s an overrated game. The remake is much better, but I’m still of the opinion that the original was a bit too hyped and overrated. Weirdly, I still liked Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete.
I liked it so much I’ve double dipped on it on physical media; once on DVD and just last year, on the blu ray.
Looks like I’ll be triple dipping as Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete is set to hit 4K UHDs soon, if Amazon is to be believed.
A listing for the 4K UHD (which is also packed with the Blu-ray disc and a digital copy) version of the movie has popped up on Amazon US, which means that a release is forthcoming. Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly when that is, though I suspect it’ll release in the next few months, if not weeks to coincide with the release of the PS5 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake.
If you’ve never seen it, Advent Children Complete is the extended (or Director’s Cut) version of the original movie, Advent Children. The movie takes place years after the events of Final Fantasy VII, with Cloud and Tifa running a delivery service. A new sickness called Geostigma is infecting people and there’s seemingly no way to cure it. On top of that, a trio of mysterious men are roaming around looking for the whereabouts of ‘Mother’.
It’s a convoluted affair to be honest and familiarity with Final Fantasy VII is a MUST if you want to watch it. I made my wife watch the movie and she had no idea about what was happening. You’ll probably get a similar reaction from any non-initiated you know too.
