For years, the Niflheim Empire and the kingdom of Lucis have been at war. The empire, having dominated most of the world of Eos, covets the power of the last known Crystal, which is held in Lucis' capital city, Insomnia.

In order to protect his people from these advancing forces, King Regis Lucis Caelum CXIII used the power of the Crystal to surround Insomnia with a magical wall. Along with this barrier, Regis assembled an elite military task force known as the Kingsglaive. By drawing their power from the king, the Kingsglaive protect Lucis' borders from the onslaught of the empire and other forces that would do them harm.

One such member of the Kingsglaive is Nyx, a man nicknamed "The Hero" by his fellow warriors due to his arrogance and desire to save everyone. However, his pride gets the better of him, causing him to disobey his captain's orders, resulting in a demotion. Now, Nyx spends his days guarding the city gates, but things begin to change once word gets out that Regis plans to sign a peace treaty with their sworn enemies.

To sum it up - there is nothing that will blow your mind out of the water in this movie besides the animation, but it is definitely worth a watch if you're planning to purchase and play the game - it stands as a decent prequel to the game, although not ...

Mixed Feelings
Final Fantasy's developed a bit of a problem. Their stories were always quite simple, with evil empires, noble rebels, wizards, demi-god opponents, and monsters. Their strengths were the way they combined them to create emotional plots and unique characters. The problem with the recent installments is that they've buckled down on the exceedingly basic nature of their plots while dramatically increasing the complexity of their descriptions. While previous installments would be content to simply state that people are using a mana cannon, for example, its abilities to be demonstrated in game, more modern ones would feel compelled to describe the nature of the mana cannon, ...

"I went in expecting nothing and still got disappointed". This sentence sums up Kingsglaive succinctly and accurately. Of course, for a more detailed explanation of why this movie is somehow worse than that cash grab that is Advent Children, I'll be spoiling the film below. If you care about the story and/or have no qualms paying 10 bucks or so for a ticket, go ahead and watch it. Otherwise, welcome, dear reader, to another episode into the dark spiraling hell that is my review.

Spoilers start here.

The movie begins promisingly enough, a simple prologue that explains the world and its inhabitants well enough. However, after that ...
