Pretty good.
The Amuro-Char rivalry could not have ended better. I'm not going to say how, but the ending was totally satisfying. I also liked Bright Noa's predicament here. He's always been the flawless starship captain, and now he has to deal with his son Hathaway being underfoot. I'll leave the telling of the plot to somebody else. The ending theme, "Beyond the Time" was what got my attention the most. Wow.

The thing with this movie is that it suffers from Red Shirt Syndrome (RSS). Red Shirt Syndrome is when lots of extra characters are brought into a story and then killed off for no apparent reason other than adding to the tragedy/seriousness of the story. Red Shirt Syndrome is so named because on the original 'Star Trek', a crewmember would accompany Captain Kirk and crew down to the planet...and the red shirt wearing crewmember would be killed for no apparent reason.

Char seems to have gone through quite a bit of change in this movie. Compare this Char to the Char in the original series, and you'll see a difference. In this movie, Char begins to become like his father, Zeon Zum Deikun. He gives speeches and becomes a political figure...a change that started when he was going under the name Quattro Bagina in Zeta Gundam. On the other side, Amuro hasn't changed much. He's lost a bit of his idealism, but he's still the same Amuro. Basically.

I think that Quess and Hathaway would've made a charming couple. That's all I have to say about that.
