About the Movie
The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire’s rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There's a very real possibility that watching "Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV" could result in brain addlement.
Rotten: Instead of trying to adapt the video game experience into a film format, Kingsglaive transforms the movie-going experience into something familiar to video game fans. It's essentially a really long cutscene.
Rotten: This glorified video game trailer combines eye-popping visuals with an eye-crossing story.
Rotten: The film's convoluted plot and dense mythology ... may leave even "Final Fantasy" devotees scratching their heads.
I was blown away by this movie when I saw it in theaters. It was so good, I saw it twice! You don't have to understand Final Fantasy to be a fan of this movie, but if you are a fan, you'll enjoy the familiar and gorgeous score that sets each and every stage in the movie. Beyond that there are a few familiar monsters and references through the film that could leave some fans in tears of horror and excitement respectively. This film really sets the stage for the upcoming game title, Final Fantasy XV, and I'm more excited than ever for the release of it in September. As a fan, I highly enjoy the film and think it was a perfect accompaniment to the game. Again though, non fans can still enjoy the film so long as they are a lover of action and modern fantasy. Can't wait to get my copy of the movie with the game, I can see myself watching it another 20+ times within the year!
This was amazing
I was woried because of the low score on rt but then I remembered I shouldnt trust critics and I was not let down
Looks like it's going to be good! Now if iTunes would just add Final Fantasy VII Advent Children... hint hint
