    Like the title says, Has anybody watched the Final Fantasy Kingsglaive movie?
    Is it any good?
    Is it crap?
    Can it be watched having not played FF 15?
    Thanks

    Pretty decent,and the visuals are good.

    However,you probably won't understand some of the stuff that's going on,but i'd still recommend watching it if you're looking for a way to kill some time.

    (Imo the movie is better than XV lol)

    I watched it without playing XV ( I have it downloaded tho), it is pretty good actually and the visuals are absolutely stunning.

    I liked it, it can stand on it's own but it runs concurrently with the beginning of FFXV. Also, Nyx was badass and you'll get to see why Libertus' LB animation is this:

    The movie takes place during the first chapter of 15, I enjoyed it quite a lot. I'd say it makes the most sense if you watch it around the close of act 1, maybe a touch later. It will make more sense that way, but it explains most of what's going on well enough for context.

    Awesome movie

    It will show you how Nyx is a real hero, not that fancy pants Noctis and his boy band.

    Kinda like Zack was much more of a hero than emo Cloud.

    But hey, main characters are OP.

    @SlightlyDubious and I watched it before her playing XV so I got some backstory. And, there's Brotherhood as well (animated) that gives more story, too.

    I watched Kingsglaive well before I completed chaper 1, so it's almost like watching before playing the game. To me the film's quite good. Not just the visuals, but parts of the story too. Sean Bean made quite an impression as King Regis, as did his character's story. And yes, Nyx is the badass, Ravus is a wailing pussy with ego issues, and Iedolas aldercapt is geriatric patient freshly released from geriatric ward.

    On a note, we don't see as much Ardyn as we're accustomed to, but still, Ardyn is Ardyn: either charming, manipulative, aloof or conniving

    The visuals, art style, and music are all amazing and Nyx is my favorite FFXV character. It's definitely worth a watch, but to be fair, it can get a wee bit exposition-y, and you'll question some of the character/plot logic. The voice acting is pretty hit-or-miss. There are some AMAZING monster cameos.

    Might be a good idea to edit out the spoiler.

    I liked it and the visual is just amazing.I think Nyx is still better character than noctis.Some people hate the movie because the game takes place after the movie so they are feel "force" to watch the movie to know what has been happening before.
