Saw it, expected it to be really bad but actually enjoyed the movie 2 stars
out of 4 in my book.  The best part of the movie was the side-kick.  The
male protagonist and the main evil dudes were well done.  Most of the
special effects were good to great.  Some were cheesy.  The plot stunk for
the most part, character development was limited and it was clearly directed
at young teens or pre-teens.  Don't go expecting much and you'll probably
enjoy it.

If you want to see a good, clean movie, check out Emperor's New Groove.
It's very funny and more geared toward adults than typical disney movies.

Now, Final Fantasy should be a spectacular event.

As an aside, I just saw "Princess Mononoke" (supposedly a killer anime film
from Japan) and while the animation was the best I'd ever seen in a Japanese
film, the plot was just another re-hashing of the man vs nature ... evil
humans destroying nature and nature fighting back theme ... which seems to
account for about 90% of all anime' films.  There was some interesting
twists in the story-line but not enough for me to recommend the movie unless
you have nothing else to watch.  It's also rather gruesome and definitely
not for the squeamish or the young.
