Despite what people say, this film was not awful. Okay, it didn't quite match up to the magical, epical, astounding, spellbinding, memorable, groundbreaking quality of the game series, but think of it as a normal SciFi movie and you'll be fine. That's right, SciFi. It's not really what I would classify as fantasy.

The story was quite simple, but decent enough. It had some good qualities, but nothing new. There were a couple of unexpected moments, some romance, action, and some interesting ideas.

They are both next gen CGI. Very well done. The stories are different, but if you like the animation for one, you will like it for the other.
Even if they are examples or two different times, both have a similar essence. Both movies are epical crusades where the true form of a hero takes form to revive the hope on humanity...
