| Not the latest and greatest, but its definitely entertaining
I was lucky enough to check out the Gundam F91 premiere at the Otakon convention over the summertime and boy was I impressed. Yoshiyuki Tomino is one of my favorite directors and I grew up watching his

original Gundam series/movies as well as some of his other works.

Gundam F91 on the surface looks like your typical Gundam story of war, young boy, impending doom to the colonies, and of course...the Gundam itself. However, the great part about the film is the fact that Tomino is able to weave together a very compact and comprehensive story within a 120 minute film. The animation look pretty good considering the film was released in Japan around 1991.

The movie is set about a hundred years in the future within the Gundam time line. You do not need to have any pre-knowledge of Gundam, the other movies/shows...its a self contained story. Young Arno Seabrook is the son of Mobile Suit researcher caught up in a new conflict against an enemy known as the Crossbone Vanguard. Armed with a prototype Mobile Suit, Arno is an accidental hero in the struggle against the Vanguard.

All in all, its definitely not the latest and greatest in Japanese animation especially with shows like Gundam SEED and Ghost in the Shell 2 out there, but its definitely an entertaining movie with plenty of giant robots and action.
