The movie itself is a direct representation of what the video game is actually about. While it does go deeper into the Kingsglaive and the social issues that were taking place at that time, it is meant to be a prequel for the game. The plot is similar regarding the Empire wanting to take the crystal and being successful in doing so, which would initiate Noctis's whole journey of getting it back in Final Fantasy XV.

The film has amazing graphics and the CGI is almost unreal. The effort put into this is clearly shown. Though this series may have been poorly executed and the film may lack a few things story-wise, it is still something I would watch again.

Having played through the game first, I feel that this movie is a great addition to the storyline. Keep in mind that this is not a stand-alone film. Its purpose was to flesh out events that were not fully covered in the game itself. And I, for one, think they did a great job in doing so.

I tried, but I just can't get into the movie with the video game setting and faces and all. Now quite animation, not quite real actors, not sure what to make of this. I just can't get the excitement or emotions from the movie so it was a dud for me.

Always have an affinity towards films based on video games, manga and comics. This one offered the expected superb animation (sharp even in slow motion) and its own magical story but odd seeing those Audi's with the major characters in medieval garments, Character driven fantasy with the age old struggles in a feudal world; on par with "Assassin's Creed 2016" but not great as some animated/live-action franchises like Resident Evil, Warcraft and Halo.

I played the game and now the movie explained what is happening in the beginning of the game.

At the beginning:
For centuries the sacred magic of the divine crystal blessed our world and its people. But in time the promise of its power brought war to our lands. Lucis, a peaceful kingdom of great magic kept safe by the power of the crystal. And Niflheim, a military empire of vast machinery made strong by the might of its magitek. Long has war raged between the two. As the years passed, Niflheim marched on nearby nations driven by its unsurpassed technology. To defend itself, Lucis raised a magical wall the strength of which comes from the crystal itself. Insomnia alone, the crown city and last bastion of Lucian defense remained beyond Niflheim reach for many years. ...

Unlike you, I learn from history.

A man's past is his pride.
-No. My pride is shaping the future.
