  • Is Final Fantasy decent sci-fi? Yes, more than decent. show more

  • The story is nuts-and-bolts space opera, without the intelligence and daring of, say, Steven Spielberg's ''A.I.'' But the look of the film is revolutionary. Final Fantasy is a technical milestone, like the first talkies or 3-D movies. show more

  • Although packaged as a movie, is in reality a clever 106-minute promo for Sony's PlayStation II games.
