The film was absolutly AMAZING, but what i honestly dont get is, why the hell did square hire a completely new member to the team? it was a HUGE risk and they knew that the fans of final fantasy most probably wanted to hear yet another outragous, fantastic original score from the more animated and memorable composer, Nobuo Uematsu. i think having someone else compose this movies music has made a very big effect (and a bad one at that) on the whole entire series soundtracks. i think after this film people thought that the later games in the series would carry on this poor, unexciting soundtrack which really doesnt get stuck in your head like songs composed by Uematsu such as "liberi fatali" (FFVIII) and "One Winged Angel" (FFVII). i for one was hoping for a slightly querky style of sound in the film, unlike the very serious militery theme going on. i know the film was based around this (which actually had nothing to do with the game series..huge let down) but they could have made it less "wait i've heard this from another film? or does it all just sound the same to me".
Im not saying that the new adition to the sound team is a crap composer, but tbh...on the subject of final fantasy ... Uematsu knocks spots off this guy, he seriously has no s*** on him.
Im just glad when they made Advent Children... Uematsu created the fantastic musical score for this. he knows what the fans want soundtrack wise. he should stay with square. he puts a whole new atmosphere into every single game, and film. the composer of Sprits within, does NOT do this on this occasion im afraid.
