Critic Reviews for Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
I never stopped marveling at the thousands of individually delineated pores and hair strands of the heroine, but the thin story covering her acquisition of one wave after another while narrowly escaping death time and again is strictly for player one.
This bigscreen adaptation of the long-popular interactive computer game is visually impressive if not dramatically cool, and is marked by "acting" that is no worse than that found in the majority of sci-fi films.
The human figure, however, remains a challenge to current CGI technology, since the detailing of hair and freckles, for instance, proves rather more credible than the marionette-like impression created by cold eyes and oddly unconvincing body movements.
The story is adequate, if familiar, but after half an hour relapses into cliche.
The visual grandeur cannot hide clichéd dialogue, thin characters, and a frustrating lack of development.
Audience Reviews for Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
Holy uncanny valley Batman!
The first final fantasy film ever made and it seems as though they brought the videogame, which I am not a fan of, to life. The live action movie is much more enjoyable and fun to watch, however they need to make more, really describing the outline of final fantasy, because it just places you in the middle of a random story out of the videogame!
This sci-fi adventure, based on a popular computer game, was highly touted as the first film completely computer-generated in a photo-realistic style, and much of the animation is truly stunning. However, the story is incoherent, betraying its video-game roots, and the characters are boring; the stunning animation doesn't extend to facial expressions or lip movements.
