Led by a strange dream, scientist Aki Ross struggles to collect the eight spirits in the hope of creating a force powerful enough to protect the planet. With the aid of the Deep Eyes Squadron and her mentor, Dr. Sid, Aki must save the Earth from its darkest hate and unleash the spirits within.
**What was cutting edge in 2001...** ...now just looks like an average cut-scene from a PS2 game. Soooooo all you have to rely on is the plot, and that is thin to say the least. Weak characters, weak plot and really jerky unnatural animation make this once ground-breaking film look awkward and uninteresting. Couple that with the facts that it bares very little resemblance to the addictive if basic games, and the script feels like it was written with google translate, the whole film ends up feeling flat, confusing and leaves you wanting more.
