Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive is a new film from Square Enix and Visual Works to introduce fans to the world of Final Fantasy XV are still in-delay. For those who have never played or watch any previous Final Fantasy, take it easy because I actually had never finish played it (yes, please, sue me).
From the perspective of someone who has never played a game from Square Enix other than Kingdom Hearts, at first I afraid i won’t be able to understand this film. But take it easy because I think anyone can watch it. Kingsglaive not as "elite" as it. But whether the film is worth to watch? Let's discuss together.
The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember. King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king's magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim's imperial army. Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting an ultimatum-he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim. As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.
King Regis, who oversees the land of Lucis, commands his army of soldiers to protect the kingdom from the Niflheim empire's plans to steal the sacred crystal which gives Lucis its magic and power. -imdb
