So there has never been a video game movie disparaty as this one, Rotten Tomatoes gave Final Fantasy XV KingsGlaive movie a movie score of 8% by the vote of 13 judges, however fans who saw the movie, who were in the total of 1,500 voters so far, have given the Final Fantasy movie a 82% or 4.1 our of 5 stars.
Now the ability to see the movie was a challenge in its self. Square-Enix had only a handful of movies throughout the USA for show. For example, in the entire state of Florida, only 1 movie theater had KingsGlaive, and that was the AMC Dine-In theaters in Lake Buena Vista (ie Disney Pleasure Island). We had to travel 4 hours all the way from Miami to Orlando to see the movie, and when we arrived, (photo-finish I must add) the second we arrived they had already let the people inside to start making the line. So by the time we arrived something awesome was happening at the spot, AMC employee’s were handing out limited count of movie posters to as many as they could. (we were a bit spoiled as we cut the line to be able to get one of them! sorry to those behind us!)
Then we saw the movie, we will keep it general so no spoilers are mentioned here, but the movie had a long beginning that had allot of stuff going on and you were either “Oh Jesus Gawd what the hell is going on!???” Or “F???? Yeah thats cool! X and X characters from FF series!!!”. There were allot of mixed emotions as we were being sprinted into the story of the movie (or game) but non-the-less the voice acting was superb most of the time by the super-star cast. The Action, the CG, the graphics and animation where B E Y O N D expectations. This movie has SOOOO much action that even if you dont like Final Fantasy, you will enjoy all the sword slinging, monster crunching, giant aliens and everything final fantasy XV has to offer. There were allot of confusion at times because of the story being so deep, trying to explain everything that is going on that might make you dizzy.
But otherwise a great movie, tons of action, allot of surprises, and now we can’t wait to play the game!
