Movie Info

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.

Critic Reviews for Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

The film is, at least, a marvelously enticing advertisement for the upcoming Final Fantasy XV video game.

August 19, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Instead of trying to adapt the video game experience into a film format, Kingsglaive transforms the movie-going experience into something familiar to video game fans. It's essentially a really long cutscene.

There's a very real possibility that watching "Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV" could result in brain addlement.

August 18, 2016 | Full Review…

The film's convoluted plot and dense mythology ... may leave even "Final Fantasy" devotees scratching their heads.

August 18, 2016 | Full Review…

The narrative content of "Kingsglaive" is a barely coherent muddle.

August 18, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Kingsglaive won't set the world on fire, but it might just be the best movie that bears the Final Fantasy name. That's not a high bar, but it's an accomplishment.

Audience Reviews for Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV


Beautiful animation but suffers from an incoherent script and poor editing. Looks more like a long trailer for fans only, to accompany Sony's big launch of the next FFXV game.
