    ...Those being inducted to FINAL FANTASY through THE SPIRITS WITHIN will marvel at the technical expertise of game-producer-turned-director Hironobu Sakaguchi...

    It's possible that the effect might be different if this were not a soggy, derivative SF movie and we had more to engage and divert us. Full Review

    The story is adequate, if familiar, but after half an hour relapses into cliche. Full Review

    Rating: 2/4 -- Despite the utterly amazing animation and exciting action, this is nothing like its source material and is very disappointing in the end. Full Review

    Rating: 3/4 -- A film that is worth rediscovering so many years after its premiere - you might have a pleasant surprise. [Full review in Spanish] Full Review

    4 stars out of 5 -- This was a groundbreaking movie that triumphantly unveiled realistic virtual humans...

    In two, three years, this movie will look as clunky as The Jazz Singer did by the early Thirties. But it will remain a crucial document in cinematic evolution, a pioneer cyberflick, a film without a single real actor. Full Review

    Product Description:

    Directed by Hironobu Sakaguchi (who also created the best-selling series of video games that inspired the film), the groundbreaking FINAL FANTASY, which stars a startlingly lifelike cast of animated characters, is the first photo-realistic computer-generated feature film ever made. In the year 2065, Earth has been taken over by a race of alien phantoms and transformed into a barren wasteland sprinkled with dome-enclosed barrier cities--the last remaining bastions of human civilization. Dr. Aki Ross (voiced by actress Ming-Na) has teamed up with Captain Gray Edwards (Alec Baldwin) to search for the "eighth spirit," a powerful entity dwelling in an unknown life form somewhere on the planet. It holds the key to perfecting a system of energy waves that will neutralize the phantoms. Ross's opponent is the reckless General Hein (James Woods), who is determined to put a stop to the alien invasion by firing a satellite cannon directly into a nest of phantoms located deep within the Earth, even though this could mean obliterating the planet itself and all life upon it.
