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.
There's a very real possibility that watching "Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV" could result in brain addlement.
The film's convoluted plot and dense mythology ... may leave even "Final Fantasy" devotees scratching their heads.
The narrative content of "Kingsglaive" is a barely coherent muddle.
Kingsglaive won't set the world on fire, but it might just be the best movie that bears the Final Fantasy name. That's not a high bar, but it's an accomplishment.
This glorified video game trailer combines eye-popping visuals with an eye-crossing story.
While "Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV" has things to be admired, such as the phenomenal CGI, but it is ultimately a movie in which perhaps only fans of the video game would enjoy.
Amazing visuals but violence, weak plot in game-based movie.
Kingsglaive is an incredibly beautiful film with a lot of fun nods to its Final Fantasy origins. Unfortunately, it never quite finds its footing story-wise, even with the help of some incredibly talented actors who breath life into their roles.
Ultimately, the Kingsglaive story is too muddled to ease viewers to this new world.
Kingsglaive's sole purpose is teasing Final Fantasy XV and if you have no interest in spending hundreds of hours of your life playing it, then don't even bother.
The film is, at least, a marvelously enticing advertisement for the upcoming Final Fantasy XV video game.
Beautiful animation but suffers from an incoherent script and poor editing. Looks more like a long trailer for fans only, to accompany Sony's big launch of the next FFXV game.
