      Dude, this reminds me of one of my more embarrassing high school moments. My friend and I had to do a project in PowerPoint in High School. FF:SW was relatively new and as the Japanese were pushing the character multiple images of her in a bathing suit (such as the one you showed) were being distributed. One of these were in his directory. I had told him some one was likely to see it there but he said it wasn't likely as it was on his folder. So when we had to show the PowerPoint guess what? A teacher was clicking threw the files and gues which one ended up on the projector? Lol. Speech class was a weird class.

    3:27 - well THERE'S an understatement...
    5:43 - Jesus, how deep does this hole go? :P
    7:00 - funnily enough this SOUNDS like it would have been a good game - no fucking fantasy/scifi/steampunk/cyberpunk mashup garbage as we've gotten with the recent Final Fantasy games. Just straight up ass-kicking sci-fi. Good. Done. Pick a setting. Stop waffling. Sadly, as a movie, who wants to WATCH something you could play? :P
    8:16 - oh, JESUS... nice job guys. REAL fucking subtle :P you could have AT LEAST made the signs baffed up and dirty...
    8:54 - she just LOVES looking for Life Forms! A LIFE FORM... a pretty little LIFE FORM... ... a precious little LIFE FORM... where are you?
    13:02 - Memo to me - MEMO TO ME... maim you all after this meeting...
    16:37 - GOD IT BURNS!!!!!!!!!!!
    18:03 - mission fucking ACCOMPLISHED :P
    20:49 - he's GOTTA have a weakness - because EVERYBODY'S got a weakness...
    23:13 - I'M the one giving orders now - Bolt Boy - and I think I'm gonna LIKE it here...
    27:26 - And now you know how it FEELS to be just like EVERYBODY else... and isn't it just PEACHY!!!!
    30:39 - Oh RIGHT the black guy's dying! Damn it! Now I can't say I know tons of black people on the internet!!!!
    30:57 - boy, I haven't seen this much love in a room since Narcissus discovered himself!!!
    32:04 - Guys... ... Olympus would be THAT way...
    32:26 - Japanese gonna Japanese my friend :P

    It has a few things from the game; like the theme of Gaia and monsters outside of cities. It's just not a final fantasy movie, it's a simple sci-fi scripted to show off cgi abilities and trying to get money by using thr title. It would need magic, summons, and a large amount of characters and development. So it would need to be a series unless it based on a game that already fleshed out the characters, like Advent Children was.

    "Her delivery seems more computer-generated than her character is."
    And Square Enix would never do something that silly for their main character ever again. And then promote her as the borderline literal second coming of Jesus Christ. For three games.

    Now my comment must stop again, because of the worst part of the video. 24:30
    No, not because it's an advert. _But because it's another thing telling me to stay inside and never go outside and socialise. Oh the irony..._
