If you're a fan of one very specific aspect of FFX, you'll love this movie.
If you ever played FFX (Final Fantasy 10), and you LOVED the Blitzball games, then... oh boy! This is the movie for you... for at least the first 100 minutes. Then there is a generic action ending where the good guys fight the bad guys.
I think that a lot of people giving this movie low review are comparing it to movies like The Matrix or other films that were critically acclaimed and had a lot of CGI. The CGI out of Russia is improving, and I don't think that the 'cartoon-y' element is necessarily a detriment to the movie.
So overall, if you went into this expecting Roger Rabbit, you're going to get Cool World, and it'll really be a 2/10. If you want a fun and visually exciting movie that you can watch for 2 hours and shut your brain off... solid 7.
