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.

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.

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.
August 18, 2016
The narrative content of "Kingsglaive" is a barely coherent muddle.

If the look of the movie should please fans, the plot is an absolute muddle-an unholy brew of flotsam and jetsam that ranges from Wagnerian motifs and garbled Latin names...to bits of 'Star Wars' and 'The Lord of the Rings.'

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.

With stunning photorealistic animation but poor storytelling, this action movie is meant solely to interest fans of the videogame franchise.
August 15, 2016
As a stand-alone film, this is a beautifully rendered bore. As an advertisement for the forthcoming video game, it has some merit.
August 15, 2016
Improved animation, but the hash of a story and the myriad of forgettable characters and situations make this more of a video game commercial or primer for players than a movie.
