Synopsis

U.C. 0123. Mobile Suit Gundam F91 is Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino's attempt to launch a new Gundam saga, set thirty years after Char's Counterattack.

The story of Gundam F91 revolves around teenage space colonist Seabook Arno, his friend Cecily Fairchild, and the efforts of the Crossbone Vanguard militia, led by Cecily's grandfather Meitzer Ronah, to establish an aristocracy known as "Cosmo Babylonia".

In keeping with Gundam tradition, the civilian Seabook is forced by circumstance to pilot the F91 Gundam, coincidentally designed in part by his estranged mother, Dr. Monica Arno.

Ever wonder what happens when a fifty-episode series gets condensed to under two hours? The answer to that lies within Mobile Suit Gundam F91 -- a textbook example of wasted potential. Though F91's core story is a solid idea that draws plenty of inspiration from its predecessors, without any flesh on its narrative bones, F91 is reduced to an inconsistent and and very much rushed tale. However, boasting its nostalgic story along with great animation, F91 is still worth a look by fans of the gundam franchise.

Nobody does an attack on a civilian population better than the Gundam franchise.

The opening to this movie blew me away. When a gigantic bullet casing, falling from a mecha's weapon, bounced off a lady's head on a street far below, causing her to fall over and die, I instantly gave this a 10.

This is the kind of movie I was hoping Char's Counterattack would be. A coherent and compelling movie charting everything we love about the Gundam franchise. The horror and tragedy of war, the visceral action and drama, the complexity and ambiguities of ideologies, mecha blowing shit up.

Recommendations

Both of these are movie installations of a long running space franchise, and both have updated art and animation when compared to previous releases in the franchise, though these changes are far more agreeable in MSG F91. Most importantly however, is that each of these films contains one of the best anime deaths ever, with the shell casing KO at the start of F91 and the hanging at the end of Ougon no Tsubasa.
Both films are set in the two bigger Gundam worlds (UC universe for F91 and CE for Stargazer) but regardless, they can both probably be enjoyed even without seeing their parent stories and connections, as they're fairly standalone (Stargazer does have some cameo appearances though). One thing they both really excel at compared to the main Gundam series, is the high amount of realism put into the action and some scenes. They're both a bit more upfront with the violence, depicting some gritty death scenes and whatnot. F91 opens up wiith an insanely detailed colony attack scene while Stargazer opens up with a city under attack that is even hit by a tsunami. Very detailed stuff and both a great.
