The main prejudices against this film seem to be that it carries the "Final Fantasy" title. Excited fans of the gaming series were seriously dissapointed because this film has absolutely nothing to do with any of the games and is in a completly different style to them. This isn't surprising, because the games are incredibly complex and their stories would eat up hours of screen time. Fans of the game just did not have the foresight to enjoy it as a seperate movie. I had not played the games upon viewing and so could afford to be more impartial.
The rendered characters are incredible; for computer geeks it's worth buying the DVD to see Dr. Aki Ross's (the main character) hair blowing in the wind.
The storyline is as deep as you want it to be- it works on many levels, ultimately dealing with spirituality/life and death issues. On the other hand, it can be enjoyed solely as an action movie. Another great feature is the music, which is some of the best work I have heard- particularly the end credits/love scene piece "The Dream Within".
There is not a great deal of character development, and this upset critics. Nevertheless, there is still feeling and the viewer does get attached to most of the characters.
You simply HAVE to watch this film once. It really is nothing like anything that has gone before it.Read more ›
Then there was "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within", a foreign film by a director, Hironobu Sakaguchi, who doesn't even speak english. And yet FF was absolutely original for a summer film; emphasis on story and character, post apocalyptic civilization coping with a mystery that has wiped out the majority of humanity, ghosts from another planet, a villian who is not a typical evil cliche -he's just trying to save the human race, a hero who may be infected by the spirits inside her and may subsequently be subverting a squad of marines, and the underlying theme of faith. All those elements add up to an underappreciated cult classic that Hollywood purposefully swept under the carpet.
Why was this film targeted with 0 marketing from the studio that distrubuted it, Sony Pictures? Cause the movie was totally financed by Square and Sony had no stake in it's success whatsoever. However, Sony was already in talks to create the cg for the all motion capture "Polar Express", a $100 million plus payday from Warner Bros to Sony for just making the graphics, disregarding the final outcome of the box office. That's a fat guaranteed paycheck. Check out this link regarding Tom Hanks public campaign to sink FF- (...Read more ›
The story involves the Earth of 2065 now dotted with encased cities.They are under constant threat by a variety of ethereal type entities called Phantoms,who,with just a slight touch,can kill a man by taking his very essence.The film opens as one Aki-Ross is scouring the old open city of New York for a plant which is one of eight spirits needed to defeat the Phantoms.At that same time some troopers drop in on reconnaissance and luckily for Aki,end up saving her life as the Phantoms start attacking.
It turns out Aki had a relationship with the head trooper and as the movie progresses the two end up reconnecting.Aki works for a Professor Sid and from here on in the troopers,Aki and the professor will work together to collect the other spirits.However not all are happy with the spirits or Gaia theory that the professor expounds.In fact General Hein wants to use an orbiting dynamo to wipe out the main cluster of Phantoms in Russia.Both sides give their arguments at a hearing with the current administration and the professor and company buy some time.Read more ›

It remains an animation movie. But the details are stunning at times. I first saw that movie before the flat screen tv's revolution. It looked more like a real movie then.Published on Sept. 30 2012 by sp
