PLOT: Two alchemist brothers go on a quest for the Philosopher’s Stone after an attempt to revive their dead mother goes horribly wrong.
Another Netflix Original (aka Netflix import) hits the streaming service on February 19th. This time it is the live-action adaptation of the mega-popular anime FullMetal Alchemist. It looks like Netflix decided to go the import route instead of Death-Note-ing the story, which is probably for the best. Either way it is very cool to see Netflix bringing this into their catalog and hopefully they give it a bit of a push on their homepage so people who normally wouldn’t be aware of films like these will get a little exposure to it.
The trailer for it looks pretty rad and anyone interested in some Japanese fantasy/action fun will not be disappointed by this one. Hopefully this opens up the door for future imports to make a splash on Netflix (and amongst US viewers who are notably closed off to foreign films).
