It's just plain bewildering.

The truth is, I have never seen a movie with this much exposition, and I still have no idea what was going on most of the time.

As a technical achievement [the characters] are astounding. It's too bad they weren't put into a plot that felt less hackneyed.

Lo que no cambia, se extingue. El cine no es la excepción; Final Fantasy puede no ser el primer paso, pero sí el más dramático.

The heroes, though eye-poppingly rendered, remain emotionally as one-dimensional as any computer-game avatar.

Successfully following the plot should earn viewers some kind of trophy; staying awake should earn them a cash prize.

So gorgeous, so able to transport the viewer, that normal sticking points like clichéd plot and hackneyed dialogue don't much matter.

Where "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within" falters is not in the stunning visuals, but in its pedestrian script

Despite its strong visual appeal, Final Fantasy alienates the audience with strange theories that go unexplained, and characters that rival Pinocchio's reality.

As the first attempt at a photo-realistic animated movie, this is definitely worth seeing on the big screen.

The animators put in a lot of hard work here, and they should be very proud of themselves. But frankly, if Final Fantasy is the future of movies, I'm taking up macramé.

The look of Final Fantasy then provides food for thought: what is "realism" and what does it have to do with the movies?

...from the first half hour through the final, unbelievably dull moment, the film beats its audience over the head with the same, tired moral.
