Set in the year 0123 of the Universal Century--the main Gundam continuity--F91 the Movie premiered in Japan in 1991. Although she was raised as a normal girl in the space colony of Frontier IV, Cecily Fairchild is really Berah Ronah, the daughter of a powerful, aristocratic family. Her father and grandfather are plotting to create an extraterrestrial empire, Cosmo Babylon. But they didn't factor the Gundam F91 and its New Type pilot Seabook Arno into their calculations. With Seabrook at the controls, the F91 can defeat any number of lesser mobile suits from the Ronah private army, the Crossbone Vanguard. F91 the Movie suffers from too much plot for its limited running time: Enough material for at least one season of a TV series has been crammed into just under two hours. The crises end before they really begin, and the characters remain underdeveloped. The two-disc set includes a version with 5.1 Dolby Digital audio and a number of minor extras. (Rated PG-13, suitable for ages and older: violence) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

From director Yoshiyuki Tomino (Mobile Suit Gundam) -- U.C. 0123. After a generation of peace, the Earth Federation has begun to build new space colonies to house humanity's growing population. But a new force, the aristocratic Crossbone Vanguard, plans to seize the colonies of the newly constructed Frontier Side for itself. As their home becomes a battlefield, a handful of young civilians struggle to escape the conflict. To save his friends and family, the reluctant warrior Seabook Arno becomes the pilot of a new Gundam which bears the code name F91.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gundam F91, and entertaining Universal Century movie January 19, 2005
Format:DVD
F91 is one of Bandai's next Gundam releases to finally make it overseas. Bandai has mostly been releasing their Alternate Reality Gundam shows (Such as Gundam Wing, G-Gundam, Gundam SEED), so having a little Universal Century doesn't hurt anyone.
Taking place many years later after Char's Counter Attack, the Federation is at war with the Crossbone Vanguard. At a colony, young Arno Seabook just wants to live a normal life, until the Crossbone invade his home. Now finding himself cornered, and now the pilot of the experimental F91 Gundam, Arno must save his friends and those he cares about, or die trying.
This movie was technically supposed to be a series, but for some unknown reasons, Tomino (The creator of Gundam), had a change of plans and had this become a movie. Why this choice, is still unclear. The plot may seem rushed and compact at times, but it's trying to tell alot, even though it's around a 2 plus hour movie. However, that doesn't stop the story from shining.
The animation quality for a movie of it's calibre is VERY decent. I couldn't see any animation errors or faults, so there is nothing to complain about. The english dubbing is above average, as I didn't mind it. Musical score is fairly good too. This DVD also has lots of extras, and has a second DVD to boot.
Gundam F91 still isn't the last Universal Century story to be released, we still have a little ways to go. Zeta Gundam is now out, and hopefully soon, ZZ(Double Zeta) Gundam will follow. And hopefully after that, the other UC stories and AUs to boot. Until then, enjoy this movie, as I know I enjoyed it.

2.0 out of 5 stars F91...It all adds up to the same old thing March 11, 2005
By G White
Format:DVD
Originally intended as a TV series, Gundam F91 is the last of the original Universal Century movies (the rest being compilations of earlier series). 30 years have passed since Amuro and Char had their final climactic duel and things have only gotten worse for humanity. The corrupt Earth Federation have continued to let their power slip and are ill equipped to face a new spacenoid rebellion known as the Crossbone Vanguard. Waving the banner of spacenoid peace and supremacy, many colony citizens wonder if accepting them would be a good thing. But for every idealist there must be a greedy tyrant.Hope lies with a ragtag group of civillains and trainees and the prototype MS known as the F91...

Gundam F91 follows the classic Gundam plot structure- war comes into the mostly peaceful life of a young man and his friends and fate sees him as the pilot of the weapon which could end the conflict. By the time of it's appearance here, the structure is certainly showing some faults. The film perhaps even hurts itself by pointing out more than once that this isn't the first time this has happened in the Gundam world (This is an ongoing theme with the film- early on we see a war museum displaying old Zeon MS and the F91 receives it's 'Gundam' designation in honour of the suits which came before it).Whilst the basics are ok, the formula could really use some livening up.

Not helping things is the erratic pacing- due to being based off of half complete ideas for a TV series, F91 is a dissapointing mix of too many plot points and little resolution. Many times through the film I could see how certain elements would have been expanded in a full length series. Characters seem to be brought in just to be killed and 'develop' the main character.

4.0 out of 5 stars very nice February 7, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
F91 is one of the gundam features that I love for its animation quality. The action is spectacular, the Crossbone Vanguard mobile suit designs are spectacular, the characters are spectacular.

The film exemplifies gundam in all of its glory, by using the famous openning sequence in which an un-suspecting citizen, usually a naive young man, is forced to defend his home from mobile suit attack in an unfamiliar fighting machine.

Back in 2002 I was fearing that gundam might just be a one hit wonder in America with 'Gundam Wing' but its nice to finally see the entire gundam franchize taking off in the states. I cant wait for the American adaptations of Gundam X and Victory Gundam.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 Disc Set - Directed by Legendary "Yoshiyuki Tomino" September 26, 2004
Format:DVD
While it doesn't live up to Tomino's "Char's Counterattack", Gundam F91 holds it's place in history.

Gundam F91 makes it's ground in history because it is the first (and possibly only) Gundam title to be shown in U.S. theatres. F91 made it's debut at Otakon and is now making it's way across the states to New York (at the ImaginAsia Film Theater), Los Angeles, Boston, Dallas, Chicago, Houston, and San Fransisco at the Festival of Anime Screening. If you live in or by any of these citys I strongly urge you to go see it! Be a part of Gundam history!

I originally saw this movie on my computer from a R2 DVD rip of it and it is very good! The animation has a smooth flow and looks beautiful.

Along with it's theatrical release, the Special Edition DVD will be here November 23rd. It will be a 2 disc set conisting the following features and extras...

-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound (English)

-English/Japanese 2.0 Stereo

-English Subtitles

-Matted Widescreen Presentation (black bars)

-Producer Commentary Track (Sunrise)

-Charcter and Mecha Gallerys

-Timeline

-Trailer Collection

-Filmography of Yoshiyuki Tomino and Kunio Okawara

-Image Gallery

At a retail price of $29.98, this is a very good deal! Add this DVD to your home entertainment library!
