Gundam 00 is just an okay anime. If it weren't for the animation quality and cool designs, it'd be a stale ride. The movie, writing-wise, is worse, and doesn't add to the characters and themes of the series well. There's little development, and the enemy is borderline thoughtless. Monologues alone aren't enough. The half of the film that only serves as setup for the battles is thus pretty pointless.

But, wow, are the fights ridiculous. There's usually a dozen mechs, bits, beams, and missiles on screen, with hundreds of metallic aliens in the background. The power level of the Gundams and company are among the highest in the Gundam universe. Few suits exceeded 15 bits in the other series. In this movie, the cap reaches 154!!! The mechs still look good, and their destructive power is the most over-the-top you're going to see this side of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. With a kickass soundtrack to boot, skipping to these fights can add energy to any day.

Trailblazer is not a good movie. It boils down to a standard alien invasion movie, that asks you to watch a 50 episode series beforehand. But if you're patient, or willing to fast forward through chunks, you may have some fun. I don't usually go "Wow! Explosions!", but this is so beyond your typical movie it kinda needs to be seen. If you have no interest there, then forget about it.
