Living in the UK (and it being a bank holiday), i was lucky enough to download and watch it this morning. I'm not sure i'd recommended it as a standalone movie, but there was a lot to like about Kingsglaive as a fan and it worked for me as an introduction to FFXV's world, characters and lore. It has helped to peak my interest for the main games release in November and i can't ask for much more than that.

The Good:
-Amazing CGI
-Well rounded soundtrack
-Complex off the wall choreography and fight scenes
-Regis, Ardyn, Ledolas and Luna exceptionally well voice acted
-The feels from when Somnus played
-Regis death scene

The not so good:
-The glaives not given enough backstory
-Majority of the VA was not very good but just about passable
-Lip syncing or lack thereof
-Questionable editing between scene transitions
-Crow getting the Jihl Nabaat treatment which I kind of expected

In my opinion, Kingsglaive is great as an extended intro to FFXV, but weak overall as a film. Could've used another 30-60 mins to flesh out the characters as it jumps into the climax rather quickly, and doesn't stop from there until the credits roll.

That being said, at least it doesn't reek of fanfiction.net writing that Advent Children had.

Guys, I don't know what to do! I was going to wait until my deluxe copy of the game arrived with the Kingsglaive Blu Ray, but now that it's out digitally and the game won't be out until 29th November I'm tempted to buy this. HALP.

Have you considered whether or not it's the pirate's life for ye? If you're buying the movie anyway, that is.

I'm not one to advertise piracy; but I agree with the above sentiment.

I have the Deluxe Edition pre-ordered (and therefore already paid for the movie). I feel a bit silly to either wait till the end of November or to shell out another 10+ Euros for a digital version of the movie, so I simply downloaded a torrent for it.

Edit: If the movie had actually released in cinemas here where I lived, I would've definitely shelled out the money for that. But alas...
