KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV IS AN ACTION-PACKED FULL-LENGTH CG MOTION PICTURE! KINGSGLAIVE is told through the eyes of King Regis, while FINAL FANTASY XV follows the journey of Prince Noctis. The two tales entwine to weave a stirring story of father and son. The film also sheds light onto deeper discoveries of the game world.

From the manufacturer
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.
The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king's magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire's rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.

This version does not include the complete Brotherhood anime series, unlike the BluRay steel book. However, those episodes can easily be viewed on YouTube for free and legally.
This is very very beautiful to look at. I'm impressed at how realistic everything looks. I had to rewind several times because I would be distracted by the beauty, thinking about how they simulated, surfaced, lit, modelled the elements in the scene, and not really listening to the dialogue. But as beautiful as it looks, there are some instances where the movement of the characters look strange. I'm not sure why but I think it has to do with the mocap. I don't get this feeling when I'm looking at CG works where the animation movement is all done from scratch (animators setting keys on the rigs themselves) instead of editing data from what the mocap actor did in the suits.
As for story and characters, I didn't play the game so I felt less connection to everything compared to FF7AC for which I did play FF7. Also judging from how FF7AC was, I wasn't expecting an easy-to-understand story from Kingsglaive, and I think I was right.
Really makes me want to play the game that this is a Prequel towards.
The only downside is the climax of the story had very little resolve unlike "Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn". Resolving the story's climax while showing there is still more to the story that the Game prequel is advertising.
Overall though, it was well made. And made my mom say "Are you kidding me!" When I told her it was Motion Captured. (She said the S version though)
One of the greatest Motion Captures I've ever seen since Polar Express started the development.
If you are going to go and invest 60+ hours in the videogame, this film really should be watched multiple times to help with the story and as it is a good watch.
Great cast of characters, the CGI is on point and looks very realistic. The story isn't very captivating, but nonetheless, its still enjoyable. If you get this for a cheap price, you might as well pick it up!

I never played any of the games but still enjoyed the film immensely.
Deserves to be played with audio on full blast or via full surround sound as the audio is as epic as the visuals.
Some say that the speech volume is too low.
If not played at cinematic volume levelsthis is true, but like I said this is a film that deserves a "proper" viewing and not being played in the background without disturbing others in the room.
Final Fantasy Kingsglaive , just edges it.
And the General, is just to slick and tough to beat.
Quote, from the General.
I told you before, one man can not win wars.
You will not be disappointed.
I won'tspoil the storyline here, but if you are a final fantasy fan, an animation fan or are planning to buy the next final Fantasy game..then check this out, you'll be glad you did its a class act.
