Two years after the events in "Final Fantasy VII", a disease called 'Seikon-Shoukougun', or 'Geostigma', is spreading through the planet. This disease is believed to have been caused by the body fighting off foreign material that invaded the body two years earlier, at the end of "Final Fantasy VII". Guilt-ridden and haunted by his past, ex-SOLDIER Cloud Strife has decided to live a secluded, solitary life away from his friends while maintaining "Strife's Delivery Service", whose headquarters is located in Tifa Lockheart's bar, the Seventh Heaven. Tifa's bar serves as an orphanage for children stricken with Geostigma. Here, Tifa keeps an eye on Barret's six-year-old daughter, Marlene, while Barret searches the planet for an alternative energy source to the Planet's energy, Mako. One day, Cloud receives a phone call from the former Shinra, Inc. president, Rufus, asking him for protection from a mysterious man named Kadaj. Kadaj, in the meantime, along with his brothers Loz and Yazoo, ...Written by
Tifa's fighting style against Loz mirrors some of her Limit Breaks from the game. She opens up with Beat Rush, comes back with a Water Kick, backs him into the corner with Somersault, and ends with Meteor Strike. See more »
In the scene where Cloud is on the side of the building, standing on his sword, you can see the smaller separated blade pass through the model of the larger outer sword's handle. See more »
During the last half of the end credits, as the credits roll there's a video of a CGI cloud zooming along real roadways on his motorcycle. At the very end, there's a shot of his delivery service office desk, with a new photo on it. See more »
'Advent Children Complete' contains 26 minutes of additional footage. This includes:
An opening scene with Kadaj talking to Rufus and asking why humanity even bothers to continue on.
Marlene's opening monologue features new effects for the Lifestream, Meteor, and the background fire for Sephiroth.
Numerous new shots have been added to the introduction to Edge City, including a scene showing a man dying from Geostigma in an alley while some children watch.
A new radio voice-over during Tifa's opening scene.
When Cloud first meets with Rufus, a scene is shown from Elena's point of view, which explains what happened when Reno's helicopter landed in North Cave and where Kadaj and his brothers originally came from.
A small scene between Reno and Rude, where Reno wonders if they'll ever be forgiven for the things they did for Shinra in the past, and if they'll be able to find Tseng and Elena.
A flashback showing how Denzel first met Cloud.
As the girl with the moogle is carrying her brother through the streets, some people try to help her, but when they see that her brother is in the advanced stages of Geostigma, they back away. She drops her moogle and Denzel picks it up and holds it out to her. She angrily takes it back and continues on.
Extended flashback sequence of Zack, including his death, where he tells Cloud, "You'll be my living legacy," and gives him the Buster Sword.
Dirt, blood, and bruises are added to Tifa's fight with Loz.
The young girl later apologizes for getting angry with Denzel, and tells him that her brother is dead. She then notices that he is infected with Geostigma, and tells him that someone has found a way to cure it, taking him to where the children are being loaded into the back of Yazoo's truck.
Another flashback, where Cloud puts Denzel on his bike and leaves the church.
A scene of Denzel and the girl talking in the back of the truck.
When Kadaj loads his new materia in the Forgotten City, he tries it out by destroying a tree, scaring Marlene and shocking Loz.
A scene of Cloud and Marlene arriving back in Edge City, where she asks him why he left and whether or not there is a cure for Geostigma.
Dirt, blood, and bruises are added to Reno and Rude's fight with Kadaj, Yazoo and Loz.
A scene where Denzel defeats one of the monsters by breaking a fire hydrant which shoots out a stream of water.
During the fight between Tifa and the monsters, Cloud rushes in to save her and Denzel at the last minute.
During the chase out of Edge, Reno and Rude's helicopter crashes and they are picked up by Elena and Tseng.
The fight between Cloud and Sephorith is longer, and includes a scene where Sephiroth stabs Cloud in the stomach and holds him in the air on his blade, mirroring the famous scene in the game. A lot of blood has also been added.
During the battle with Sepiroth, Cloud has a vision of Zack.
After the battle, all the children of Edge afflicted with Geostigma receive a phone-call telling them to go to the Sector 5 church.
After the credits roll, Cloud takes Denzel to the cliff where Zack was killed. Flowers are growing on the spot Zack died, and Denzel asks if it is a grave. Cloud says no, that it is where a hero began his journey. We then cut to the altar of the church, where the Buster Sword has been restored and placed in Aeris' flowerbed.
First off, I'd like to mention I haven't seen the Complete version yet. I won't deny that this movie is pretty awful; mediocre at best. The story is as meh as they come, and none of the characters are interesting at all (except maybe Sephiroth). So why do I like this movie? Because it is positively dripping with style and pizazz. I love watching the flashy, over-the-top fight scenes; especially the one between Cloud and Sephiroth. This movie looks and sounds awesome, and despite the horrid plot, I still get a kick seeing the action.
