Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

Whoever thought America would embrace this rich, beautiful enigma is not living in my America, but I thank you for ignorance. What was considered to be a huge box office bomb is one of the most interesting and fantastic science fiction movies ever made. This all CGI story of alien ghosts attacking Earth is mind-boggling, intense and has a wonderful anti-war message. America loves war, why didn't someone tell that to Square Pictures? Most people will be puzzled by the ending, but if you like your sci-fi to be clean and simple, "Final Fantasy:The Spirits Within" is worth watching for the graphics alone. Geeks will have their own fantasy watching CGI uber-babe, Aki Ross chew the scenery. The celebrity voices are distracting, but this movie is a spectacle that can't be missed.

2001 106mins. PG-13
