Final fantasy - hopefully it's final!!!By Jimbo747 from Monmouthshire , 31 Oct 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]As someone who has played FFVII and 9 on the original PlayStation (and loved them), and egged on by the reviews above, I decided to give this one a go.
Despite the truly stunning CGI animation - the jaw dropping stuff seen in the original games, it couldn't overcome what, for me, was a film littered with every conceivable American movie cliche - the sort that makes your eyes roll.
This combined with a plot which looks anorexic when stood next to an After Eight Mint, made the film a big disappointment for me. My advice - play the games instead; they have better plots, equally good graphics, and are a better way to spend your time.

Final FantasyBy a customer from London , 27 Jan 2009A technical tour de force though with a somewhat bleak aspect.
bog standard sci fi fantasyBy Ellesar (84 reviews) from London , 02 Jan 2009As per usual there is a fair amount of macho swagger with a number of blokes with big muscles being supremely brave and nobly sacrificing themselves. The plot is a bit confusing and not really well thought out clever stuff, but I got this for the kids so that is not needed for them, but I wouldn't have minded.
The Hippy Gaia stuff is OK, but definitely daft in the idea that Gaia would be in a specific place - Gaia IS the Earth, not a bit of it kept somewhere.
Big stars doing the voices, I esp noticed Steve Buscemi and Donald Sutherland and it is necessary to have good actors to do animations - with poorer vocal performances this would have been pretty poor.
Final Fantasy-the spirts withinBy a customer from St. Columb , 29 Oct 2008Very good film contains lots of scary monsters. A good scince fiction story. Lots of action. Good film for all ages.

An Animated Masterpiece !By Shazon from Swansea,Wales , 01 Aug 2008The film has a good story line, a cast of good actors(voices!) and the animators obviously took the time of carefully animating everything from a plant the each strand of hair ! I was expecting a japanese dubbed film but the characters lips were completly synced to English so thats good ! Not much more to say about it apart from it's an excellent movie ! and I like the idea of 'spirits' passing through a living being and stealing their life (unique !) A good action film with amazing graphics !
