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.

Amazing visuals but violence, weak plot in game-based movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is basically one big promo for the Final Fantasy XV video game. The movie's plot serves as a prequel to the game, introducing key characters and settings and leaving off right where the game begins. Even those new to the Final Fantasy franchise will understand the main storyline, but only diehard fans will understand the finer details. Violence is shown as the only means of conflict resolution, and there's a lot of it. Characters use an arsenal of guns, magic, and swords to slay their adversaries, and corpses are shown (not much gore, though). Language is infrequent but includes "ass" and "bastard." The cast includes several positive role models, but their effectiveness is undermined by the movie's confusing plot and clichéd writing.
