Was it just me or was the plot similar to Final Fantasy 7?

The Lifestream = Tree of Souls
WEAPONS = Dragons
Cloud (Zack) army  > paralised > freedom fighter = Jack (his twin) army > paralised > freedom fighter
Aeris recruits Cloud = Dr Grace recruits Jake
Aeris = Grace - both die in 'the life force'

Not played the game for so there's probably more.

These are simply just tried and tested story telling methods that have been in used for thousands of years. Example:

The Lifestream – The Force
Weapons – Space Craft
Luke is recruited by a group fighting for freedom - Jake is recruited by a group fighting for freedom
Obi Wan recruits Luke – Dr Grace recruits Jake
And both Obi Wan and Grace die and become one with a higher life force

Look hard enough and you could apply these points to an awful lot of films, books and games. It’s not necessarily a negative thing; they are just proven plot devices that people react too.

Yes i understand what your saying, I just found it interesting how Avatar used these points better than the Final Fantasy Film (in my opinion) and along with how bad general game to film conversions go whether a more hybrid take is the wya to go.
