Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos follows the recent Fullmetal Alchemist anime series, Brotherhood. After running into a prisoner who has escaped 4 1/2 years into his five-year sentence, the Elric brothers decide to investigate. They are then led to Table City, where they meet Julia, the child of two murdered alchemists. Soon, they learn that the prisoner is her long-lost brother, and the four embark on a quest to find the Philosophers Stone in order to lead a rebellion to take back their homeland. Confused? Well, it takes the film about an hour and a half to get through all of this plot development, but the animation is so beautiful that one doesn’t really care. However, if the viewer has no previous knowledge of the Fullmetal Alchemist world, this flick will be pretty hard to follow; the mythology is very multifaceted and can get quite confusing.
