Film #34: Full Metal Alchemist

A live working of the manga story that has found its way to Netflix. The story is of two brothers who botch a summon spell to bring their mother back from the dead. One of them loses a leg and an arm, and the other loses everything remaining as a spirit that is housed within a suit of armour. The alchemists of the title are able to manipulate the environment; casting fire, reshaping the ground etc.

It's alright, the visuals are great, the CGI good, the colours nice and bright. But all the good scenes are in the trailer. I've not seen the original anime so might give that a go for comparison.
