Trivia

Although the film is not technically a canonical storyline, it could have occurred somewhere between between episodes 15 and 24 of the "Brotherhood Series." (In the film, Al was able to transmute without circles and Mustang's team had not yet been split up by the Furher.) See more »

Doesn't quite feel like Fullmetal Alchemist
13 March 2017 | by artur-artborgSee all my reviews

By no means is "The Sacred Star of Milos" a bad film. For those wanting to feast their eyes on flashy Japanese animation, or simply to escape from the dullness of everyday life, this motion picture will be a good time.

That being said, at no point does this truly feel like a "Fullmetal Alchemist" film.

Throughout the entire viewing, I felt as though something was off. It wasn't the animation; though "-Milos" utilizes a completely different kind of design and animation than either of the two anime series, once you've accepted that contrast it's easy to marvel at how good-looking it is (almost like a cousin of Ghibli animation). But the story, the characters (old and new), the action, the (lack of) comedy, the (melodramatic) drama...

It feels as though no member of the production had any previous history with the franchise. That alone wouldn't necessarily make this a less-than-awesome film, but the fact is that I never once cared about anything going on on screen does. I didn't care whether our heroes succeeded or if anyone were to die.

In conclusion, "The Sacred Star of Milos" is a better-than-decent adventure film which features some cool animation, but it lacks the emotion to make us care, and - I feel - won't satisfy those expecting another adventure with the Elrics.
