* Don't let scenes linger for too long. Don't be afraid to cut more, use more scenes, etc. This is particularly true in action videos. For example, 00:26 with the kid crying (other examples would be 1:06, 1:15). It would still serve its purpose if it was half the length.
* What's the theme? The first minute is all about Scar and the Ishvallans, but then it turns into Mustang, and then it quickly devolves into "let's just show all the cool scenes in FMA:B." It cheapens the impact of your video. Choose an idea and stick with it.
* There seems to be little rhyme or reason to the flow of scenes within each of the segments. Why are we seeing the Fuhrer's death scene intersected with the Kimblee fight on the train? Each clip should be a logical progression from the previous one, and should serve a purpose in the grand scheme of your video. Especially if the attempt is a more drama-ish action video.
* Most of the time the sync is pretty weak. It's competent at best (apart from 1:02, that was cool). Lyric sync is all well and good, but you have to do more than just that. More scenes like 1:02!
Hopefully that helps. Keep at it!
