What I think of the movie?

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is a great film and what stands out is the CGI characters designs. Luminous Studio is the program which Square Enix used to create these characters. The main character Nyx, Lunafreya, Regis and Ardyn have likeness after real life people. The film’s story is about war with two nation and a soldier’s role to protect something. Nyx is a caring individuals who look out for his comrades and don’t want to make the same mistake in the past.

Lunafreya is a princess who cares and willing to face death to fight who is right. There are characters who did little in the movie such as Ardyn Izunia, Crowe Altius and Ravus Nox Fleuret. We learn about the Ring of Lucil, which is a royal accessory that only blood of Lucis get to weld. Those who has lust of power will lose your life, limbs and etc. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV has potlical and immigrant issues throughout the film. There is wrong or right answer to war or saving your future. That’s what the film teaches you and Nyx is fighting for what is right for Lucis.

Fight scenes is shakie cam and you don’t know what is going on. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is a movie you should watch while playing Final Fantasy XV. Fans of the series should enjoy this one. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is available now on DvD and Bluray.
