Last Order explores the incidents that occurred in Nibelheim revolving around Sephiroth, Tifa, Cloud and Zack. Last Order explains in more detail the events that follow after the annihilation of Nibelheim.
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.
The movie shows many things from the previous series of Final Fantasy like Diamond Weapon /Daemon,Gills and Behemoth (FFVII), Cerberus (FFVIII), Crystal of magic (FFI-IX) and legendary spiky creatures Chocobo (mentioned only). See more »
The animation was of course spectacular that was a given. It was some of the best animation I've seen, with the most detailed character design, absolutely mind blowing.
It's the same issue I have with Final Fantasy: the Spirits Within. The film's animation was great but I got very little from the story and found the characters far two dimensional. The story may work if your playing it as a game not just watching it.
I can only imagine if I were a true die hard Final Fantasy fan, other than just someone vaguely familiar with the games, that I would like the movie just a little more, maybe being able to point out the trivia would get me excited.
As a movie, there is a lot of amazing action sequences, like this cool war sequence at the beginning of the film, The heroes of the film do this thing where they toss their swords at something then teleport themselves to the place the blade is, kick ass.
The only problem is, getting to these action packed parts means having to bare though a poorly produce plot that's easy enough to follow, but hard to get into. It was a series of characters that I could not get into.
Not even with the voice talents of Arron Paul and Sean Bean could I gather enough emotion to give a crap about anyone or anything in this movie. May have been a better movie if it was just one big action sequence.
