Synopsis

After a covert mission goes wrong, Mobile Suit pilot Amuro Ray and his comrades are stranded on a remote island. The battalion was sent to a land called the Island of No Return to clear off any enemy forces, only to find a group of children and an enemy mecha attack. Now Amuro must find a way for them all to escape this mysterious land, but not before meeting a strange man—Cucuruz Doan.

The reimagining of Cucuruz Doan's Island from an episode of the original MSG to a movie is a solid adaptation, albeit a little conflicted in its tone and goals. Following the Origin continuity of the One-Year War, the movie attempts to give wider importance to the events in this originally self-contained story. However, the magnitude of the consequence is so great that it creates a great deal of tension with the many light-hearted and comedic moments.

Although Gundam has developed a reputation over the decades for being a more dramatic series that strongly emphasises the pain and cost of conflict, the original series was sometimes incredibly ...

Considering that this is a feature-length adaptation of a single TV episode, I was pleasantly surprised at the pacing. It doesn't feel stretched too thin. Much of it is reminiscent of the Ranba Ral arc from the original series, in that it gives Amuro some downtime away from White Base. Despite that, the stakes are ultimately appropriately high for a movie by the climax. The story only falters in the resolution of one major conflict, which ends too quickly and easily, and is the main vestigial element betraying that this was originally all over in 25 minutes. Overall it feels like a classic Tomino-style war ...

Mixed Feelings
This Doan's Island movie feels, overall, out-of-place. While the episode it is adapting has a self-contained plot, pulling it out of Mobile Suit Gundam and stretching it to the length of a movie has resulted in an empty experience.

Character animation is emotive and interesting, but very exaggerated, just like The Origin OVA's. The writing and characterization is also just as exaggerated.

Mobile Suit combat is done in stylized CGI. This looks pretty good at points but also has awkward moments where you notice the anti-aliasing on faraway models.

In ...
