Pursuit of a dangerous criminal with devastating alchemical powers takes Ed. and Al. Elric to Table City, a remote location on the border of Amestris and neighbouring Creta. There the brothers rescue a young alchemist named Julia Crichton from the clutches of their mysterious quarry, only to find themselves embroiled in a sinister story of corruption, rebellion, murder and betrayal. Julia is the leader of the Black Bats, a resistance group fighting for the rights of the ancient Milos race, who have been forced out of Table City to live in the slums of the Milos Valley. With her people oppressed by Amestris and Creta alike, the strong-willed teen resolves to win their freedom by harnessing the energy of the Philosopher's Stone. However, Julia isn't the only one who wants to wield the artefact's enormous power…

Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos (2011) is set after the events in Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

When a criminal breaks free from prison, Edward and Alphonse Elric are roped in to help recapture him. It's soon revealed that this criminal is a dangerous man who is able to create ice and lightning from the alchemy blood circles on his palms. But why did he escape when he was due to be released shortly? The trail leads the Elrics to Table City where a secret from the past awaits them.

The animation is the same high standard we've come to expect, and the story is solid. All round this is an enjoyable addition to the Elric's saga.

Extras include Fullmetal Alchemist: Making of Sacred Star of Moils (1 hr, 04 min, 25 sec Japanese feature); US Cast Commentary; US Trailer (1 min, 03 sec); Trailers for other shows (2 min, 34 sec); Web Promo (19 min, 13 sec fun anime sketches which add much to the background of the movie); Theatrical Trailers (4 min, 07 sec); and TV Spot (48 sec).
