The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember. King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king's magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim's imperial army. Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting an ultimatum-he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim. As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.
Overall: Perfect graphics, a lack of story and scene-realization. I gave 5/10 because of the graphics.
The battles - almost all battles are with 1-2 heroes, type "one man army". I can't find a single battle with defense towers, patrols, battle groups of soldiers, electric fences, military mines, or etc. No thermal-cameras or night vision.
The story - a lot of ideas, but without a full realization. I can't understand what's going on, because there is no information about the fractions (I've zero idea about the story in the FF games and I don't know if there is some connection between them and the movie).
The people on the street are low-rendered, the main heroes - fully rendered. This makes me think that the movies wasn't fully made.
At the end I waited the end of the movie. Sure - it's a movie made for fans and to present a future game.
P.S. Final Fantasy: The spirit within is one of my favorites.
