08th MS Team is one of the best anime I have ever seen and definitely the best Gundam anime I have watched. That is why I wanted to watch Miller's Report to see if I can get some more from this anime that ended to soon. I was hoping for a side story, but unfortunately it did not live up to the anime and was just a recap episode that dumbs down some of the best scenes from the anime.
Story: There is really no story to this. Miller's is a earth fed that has to write a report on Shiro Amada if in fact he is a double agent for Zeon. So basically all they do is recap what has happened in the anime so far that has led up to this point. They had some extra footage with most of the characters with great dialogue but it was short. I was hoping for more of this, like stuff that was going on during the base when Shiro was under house arrest since they were vague in the anime, but nope we get 40 to 45 min of recaps from the anime.
I am not going to write about sound and animation because it is similar to the anime since most of the recap footage is from the anime it self.
Character:The new character introduced is Alice Miller a earth fed internal in fairs kind of person and she is pretty tough on Shiro because of her job and also a personal reason. All the main cast makes small appearance in the extra footage except for mabey Kiki but definitely everybody is in the recaps.
Enjoyment. My enjoyment was killed by the recaps first of all they took up most of the time on the film and second the recaps were taking away from the series because these episodes they tried to recap were some of the most beautiful and entertaining episodes in anime. I don;t believe those great scenes should be watched in a recap and if you want to see them you should just watch the series again like I have. It is way more enjoyable just to watch the series again than this movies recap.
Overall: I don't recommend watching this unless you want to see that 5 to 10 min extra footage with your favorite characters from the 08th Ms Team. This movie could have been much better if they eliminated the recaps and just added some dialogue for the characters and thrown in some fights just for fun. 6/10 read more
