Mobile Suit Gundam II: Soldiers of Sorrow poster

The second Gundam compilation film. They're very handy for catching up with the plot of a series, on the other hand, there's a reason why I'm not big on series. It's not a bad way to get a little background on the Gundam franchise and there are some fun scenes here, but it's TV material, and that's not what I want from a film.

The warship White Base survives an attack by Char and Garma, but that doesn't mean they're in the clear. They still have quite a way to go if they want to reach the Earth Federation's headquarters. The crew has to face various obstacles, including their own drama and insecurities.

The art style is a little limited, though the animation during the action scenes is pretty decent. The story is a bit too melodramatic, and the film doesn't flow all that well, but that's when you get when you cram 15 episodes into two hours. Still, it beats watching 15 episodes of Gundam, so it wasn't all bad.
