Final Fantasy XV just can't catch a break, can it? Despite flaunting some stellar CG, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV - the game's movie tie-in - is being torn to bits by film critics. The newly released flick is currently sitting at a worrying 8% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 12 different reviews.

The movie's plot seems to be the biggest gripe of most critics - many of them concluding that the story is little more than an incoherent mess. Other reviews claim that the film's incredibly pretty but extremely boring. And, while some publications do concede that it may be worth a watch if you're a fan, the general feeling here is that the whole thing's rather rubbish.

Of course, movies that are tied to video games always end up walking a fine line between success and failure. Earlier this year, the Ratchet & Clank movie didn't go over too well with film critics, but we've seen plenty of series fans say that they enjoyed it. It's all about context, we suppose.
