This article discusses the Netflix film Full Metal Alchemist the Final Alchemy, including the premise, release date, cast, and trailer.

READ: the review of the second film in the trilogy – Fullmetal Alchemist the Revenge of Scar.

Based on the incredibly popular Manga series Full Metal Alchemist, this is the third film in the live-action series of films featuring the characters from Hiroma Arikawa. The Elric brothers have harnessed the powers of Alchemy, but their attempts at wielding such power have taken a toll on them and those around them. Now they are trying to right the wrongs that have occurred, but many dangers and trials lie ahead, including a showdown with Scar.

Full Metal Alchemist the Final Alchemy premise

The Elric brothers have been on a quest to find solutions for the mayhem that has been caused by their attempts to harness the power of alchemy. We find Alphonse now encased in armour, and Edward now has two cybernetic arms. They have to defend themselves against other rogue alchemists while trying to repair the damage to themselves. All this has stemmed from the brothers trying to return their mother from the dead using their father’s ancient tomes on alchemy. It appears that using these ancient rituals often leads to a hidden cost by the perpetrator, and the Elric brothers are now desperately fighting for their lives as a war starts to rage through the country, and they become targets trying to survive.

Our opinion of the premise

This sounds like a pretty good quest premise, and the alchemy angle is certainly interesting. If you are a fan of fantasy action movies you should probably check this out, but it might be worth noting how difficult it is to do live-action versions of Manga and Anime projects.

Is there a trailer? 

There sure is! Check it out below:

Well, there is a whole lot to unpack with this trailer, and you get to see a lot of the action and special effects. It is obviously going to be a CGI heavy production, as this kind of film has to emulate the no-budget level of production that comes with the Manga, but there are a lot of great shots and set pieces to see here. We get glimpses of heavy-hitting villain Scar and his attempts at taking down the State Alchemists, and we see our heroes struggling with the path they have taken.
