Meh, it was an interesting concept with a bad plot and poor execution.

Yes, so says me. [Razz] Though in defense of ReBoot, it didn't take itself too seriously. And you know, it was a kid's show. FF was geared towards adults and tried to stand on par with more serious dramas, which is a commendable. Though you know what would have helped? Maybe having a connection to the games it was named after.

Since when has Final Fantasy EVER been about interconnectivity?

True. But there is this one little universe in FF that revolves around the seventh game, and the kids just love it.

Reverend: I liked it too. I'm just saying the graphics weren't as realistic as the hype says they were. Which was to be expected I suppose.

Well I never pay much attention to hype and to be honest, the un-reality of it is part of what I liked. Shades of Akira, Ghost in the Shell, for those familiar with Japanese animated films (ones that DON'T involve giant robots.)
There's something about the concept about an invasion of alien ghosts which seamed so original and truly menacing, which is more than you can say for most Sci-Fi films, animated or no.

As for the graphics, sure they weren't totally realistic, the characters were a bit stiff and there's that slump in the middle that most action films suffer from...but hey, all films are a product of their time and at the time that was the best that was being done and I'm sure if the company lasted longer their second film would have show the lessons they learnt on that project. In fact check out "final flight of the Osiris" from the Animatrix and you can see they did just that.

Well yeah the alien ghost concept was cool, but then the movie got all metaphysical and "save the whales" on my ass.

That and the whole "James Woods in the doomsday machine, gonna blow up all the red thingys and destroy all Captain Planet stood for" plot was just crap.

As I said, shades of Ghost in the Shell, which is about as metaphysical as these things get, just unlike films like...oh...The Matrix, it was reasonably coherent.

Well I never saw Ghost in the Shell, and The Matrix(though enjoyable)wasn't exactly my cup of tea.

No thank you. There something about giant manned robots with GIANT rifles and GIANT swords that smacks of the sillies to me.
