    Default The Spirits Within

    I think this is quite a good film, a nice sci-fi (with a sub plot of bittersweet romance) that defeats the bad dudes without being overly sappy.

    How about the rest of you?

    i actually love the movie... i feel it was judged unfairly because people were hoping for an FF VII movie or some medieval throwback... people got their hopes up for one thing and got something else, a really good Sci-fi movie... though it prolly shouldn't have had the FF name on it, considering it takes place in an alternate version of our universe and not the usual FF Universe...

    I rather enjoyed this movie. In fact, over the years, I've grown rather fond of it. It's a hell of a lot better than Advent Children. What the film lacked in the visual and fan-fave elements of the series, it did really strike a chord with some of the messages and directions the series was going in at the time. I can't be the only person who watches the flick and suddenly gets in the mood to play FFVII or IX?

    It was definitely a very good sci fi film. Pity it almost sunk SE. Fan expectations are a bitch.

    I remember I decided to review the DVD after having seen it in the cinema. I appreciated it way more on the DVD as I wasn't built up on expectations and hype, and had the time to watch the extra features through which really made me appreciate the film a lot more.

    Hype gets out of hand I think. I remember this film's release but, I wasn't on any fansite at the time so I didn't watch it until later when I got the DVD. I don't buy into hype a lot. Its a better way for me to go.

    Yeah, I really enjoyed it. I actually saw this at the cinema and it looked fantastic. You kind of forget it's all computer animated while you're watching. I remember it being a big thing at the time how many individual strands of hair they created for Aki.
