The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king's magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum - to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire's rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.
A mongrel of a film.
- Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV review by CM
Wierd, as a mixture of a shoot-em-up video game, Star Wars and Lord of the Rings genres. Very clever CGI animated backgrounds but some of the acting is amateurish, and the two stars, Sean Bean and Lena Headey, are quite different in appearance fom any preceeding roles I have seen them in. Like "Game of Thrones". Sean Bean has lost his usual rugged features, and Headey is disguised with wierd pale blue contact lenses and a short pinky-grey wig.
The plot is pretty convoluted and hard to follow. I couldn't finish it.
