Film Review - Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
This has got to be one of the dullest films of all time! If your life is too exciting, perhaps Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within will cool your jets.
So there's this girl having a re-occurring dream, and she needs to save the Earth, and there's nothing more to her.
"Hello? Room Service? I'd like some characters with more depth than the 3-D graphics, please."
The writing sucks. Everyone seems to be a pure 2-D person. The scientist, the Crazy General and his lackeys, the hero who knows more than anyone else. It really stinks.
Okay, I mentioned it, let's talk about the 3-D graphics. They're good, great, fantastic. But they aren't a reason to make a movie. If you wanted to demo 3-D graphics, you should make a short film. Which leads me to my final gripe.
This film is too long! At times the picture comes to a complete stand-still. Did someone not hire an editor? It was so painfully slow, I wondered why I was even in this theatre.
This wasn't my idea of a Final Fantasy. (I still don't know where the title comes from.) I'm not sure I want to tell you what my Final Fantasy would be, and you probably don't want to know. But trust me, it would be more entertaining.
