Fullmetal Alchemist Movie Reviews
Do people like Netflix's new movie, Fullmetal Alchemist? This movie is actually coming out to some pretty bad reviews (Rotten Tomatoes gives them a poor review). We also watched the film and the plot is so straightforward, and hard to get into. The special effects are good, but that's about it. Perhaps the manga books were better. Another failed attempt at bringing manga to film.
