"I am a die hard Gundam fan. Everything from the 0079 series to Turn A and even Wing. Gundam has a very big cult following and for us fans it is an animated world full of action, drama, mystery and suspense. It is sad to see how G-Saviour bastardized the Gundam universe. The only thing worth watching is the 5 minutes of CG which isn't really all that great. The plot is REALLY bad, the acting is horrible, the characters are VERY plain and one dimensional. If you are a Gundam fan please don't purchase this lame excuse for a movie...if you do they'll only start making more garbage like this. Unfortunately this was an impulse buy and I am stuck with it (the people I have offered to give it away to don't want it). Spend your money elsewhere...perhaps start exploring other Anime/Mecha titles such as Getter Robo or Big O. If not go ahead and burn your money...it's probably more enjoyable to watch than this movie."
Live Action Gundam

"The year is Universal Century 223 and the Congress of Settlement Nations, or CONSENT, controls the Earth Sphere. At this time, the world is plagued with global famine that is taken the notice of everyone. Mark Curran, an ex-consent soldier, is forced to become the pilot of the Gundam G-Savior and to protect the discovery of a new type of Bioluminescence that could solve the world hungar crisis found by the Gaian Cynthia Graves and Dr. Reva from a conspiracy to have selective famine around the world by the corrupt Consent. They head towards the colony of Gaia where there will be a clash between Consent forces, Gaian defence forces, and the rebel faction called the Illuminati. The Mobile suits look as if they were made from the One Year War Era and the plot seems to be slow in development. The only advanced technology that this movie has are the Beam Shield element from the series V Gundam. It is an okay movie, but it is suggested that you should be at least familiar with the world of Gundam or you will be completely lost in this world of giant robots, space ships, human emotion and trials, and corrupt world governments."
Too little too late

"Lets get right to it:The Good:1) Nice mecha designs and the CG looked good.
2) Good (but too brief) battle scene towards the end.The Bad:1) Wooden characters. Ironic that the the first 3D version of Gundam would have such 1D characters. Besides the Mecha, Gundam has always had great characters and this movie had none.
2) Slow pacing. It takes way to long to get to the big Mecha battle at the end and then its over much too quickly.The Ugly:1) This should have been a Japanese production. In Western hands it just came out unimaginative and boring. It happened with Godzilla (which luckily is back in Japanese hands) and its happened here with Gundam."
Gundams with Power Ranger pilots?!

"Definitely a movie for children who love Power Rangers, but a disappointment to Hardcore Gundam fans who had anticipated a live action addition to the Gundam saga. The casting for this movie was OK, however, the plot was virtually non-existant, and the writers need to be lined up in front of the Gundam Heavy Arms & let Trowa have a go at them. I actually would have given this movie 2.5 stars if I it was possible. The one highlight of the movie was in fact the CGI scenes, but even the quality of those varied throughout the movie. I recommend this movie for the library of any Gundam fan if only to insure the completeness of your collection, and for all those in love with those sappy Power Rangers."
