New Times (L.A.) - Luke Y. Thompson
Spectacular entertainment.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
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.
Boston Globe - Jay Carr
Despite its conceptual shortfall, is worth seeing, if only to update yourself on what can emerge from a keyboard these days.
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan
The film's plot gets so convoluted no nongamer older than 14 will be able to follow it all.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - Sean Axmaker
For all the grace of the animation and visual splendor, the stilted script and emotionless "performances" give this digital artifact a distinctly stiff, wooden flavor.
