I can still clearly remember when Final Fantasy was first released back in 2001. It was kind of a strange movie release 'cause nobody raved about it. Nobody marvelled at it. And nobody (including myself) went to see it. Final Fantasy came and went without even as much as a whimper. It was a weird phenomenon. Final Fantasy was "The-Movie-That-Wasn't".

Over the years about the only thing, anywhere near to an opinion, that I've heard about Final Fantasy is that it is unbelievably "boring". Yeah, B-O-R-I-N-G! I guess word-of-mouth of this sort kept people away in droves. It's really amazing sometimes what one, little word like "boring" can do to the fate of a flick.

Well, I, for one, certainly didn't find Final Fantasy "boring". To be honest, the story was a bit dry, the action a bit slow at times, but, all-in-all, it did hold my interest for the most part.

Where Final Fantasy excels (to the 10th power) is visually. It is an absolute delight to behold. The attention to detail in all the computer-generated imagery is nothing less than fantastic.

Any short-comings that Final Fantasy's story may have will be immediately forgiven if you simply treat this movie as basically a feast for the eyes. If you do so, then you won't feel let down when the story doesn't meet any of your preconceived expectations, or if it doesn't go accelerating into high-gear.

Final Fantasy's story is set in the future. Natch. The year is 2065. Mankind is on the brink of total extinction after our Earth is infested with alien Phantom-Spirits that feed ravenously on the human life-force.

Somewhat convoluted and a whole lot of new age sort of sensibility to the core story. The CGI "realness" of the people can be a bit creepy, but the characters themselves are well rendered and have been cast well in terms of voice talent. Complete aside: since Ben Affleck had nothing to do with the film, he still needs some proper compensation, given that his face got used for one of the lead characters.

Not a bad film, but it could have been better; now I really know what the "uncanny valley" is all about.

I watched it with my 2 boys 10 and 7yrs.
10 yr old loved it, 7yr old thought it was okay, he got a little scared and bored many times and left. Movie can get loud at times. Good movie for parents to watch with their older kids.

Its okay, would have expected more for something under the Final Fantasy name. CG was good for its time, though.
