Spirits within was created to an excellent standard although the script didn’t reflect any of the games[/quote:4c3461f7d7]
So a high standard apart from the script? One of the most vital elements to any film.
The Final Fantasy films were created to an excellent technical standard. They were lacking in almost everything else. Advent Children is far better then Spirits Within, but so are a lot of films, and it doesn’t necessarily make them any good.
Appleseed is a good example of using technology, a proven director in the particular genre, and an interesting plot to create a good movie.
