Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
reviewed by Erin Barger
OK. Just got back from seeing Final Fantasy.
Animation: Very well done, very realistic. However, it is so close to be real that it’s almost distracting that it’s not real.
Plot: As far as your typical sci-fi goes, it’s, like I said, typical. Though the introduction of Gaia into the scene added a nice touch.
Characterization: Most of the characters were well developed. Though the bad guy, the General, could have used something a bit more.
Over all a very good movie with a nice ending (which I won’t reveal here). The paper gave it 3 1/2 stars. I’m going to say that’s about what it deserves, IMHO.
