Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Has the stolidness of a video game, from which it is derived.
Fresh: A mesmerizing technical achievement.
Rotten: Moviegoers accustomed to Hollywood action probably won't find this contemplative adventure so appealing.
Fresh: This bigscreen adaptation of the long-popular interactive computer game is visually impressive if not dramatically cool, and is marked by "acting" that is no worse than that found in the majority of sci-fi films.
One must remind themselves that this is a cartoon!
One thing to add
Ok here's what I have to say to any of you people who havn't played final fantasy yet and are basing your opinion to play on this movie. Please do reconsider because I havnt myself seen all of this movie but based on what I have seen I will add that the video game frandchise final fantasy is nothing at all like this movie, if anything this movie is a large understatment of the marvel and greatness which is final fantasy. If you are looking for a good movie to fully understand the full potential of the game I sudgest you watch final fantasy Vii advent children, which is actually the sequell to the game. The story of this movie is not at all related to the game series. And truthfully I don't trully consider it to be final fantasy.
A lot of people don't like this movie, but I think it's great. Great characters, story, visuals. Perfect.
