This movie is still considered good in Japan; meanwhile a bunch of morons in the early 90s when this movie was licensed in the US said it was an abomination and an Akira ripoff (despite being based on a 60s Ishinomori manga that inspired Akira) and, seeing as the extremely cliquey "old-school anime fan" community is incapable of forming their own opinions, this has become the stock opinion that everyone parrots.
The general reaction was been helped by Anime News Network's pretentious clown Justin Sevakis' "WORST ANIME EVER" article on it. Ironically the reasons for this movie's "horribleness" are also present in Cyborg 009 but everyone, including ANN itself, says "oh, it's just a sign of when it was made, whatever, it's still fun" and forgives it for it. But those very same flaws supposedly make this the worst trash in the world.
Don't listen to anyone when they say an 80s anime is legendarily horrible. All second-hand opinions from some of the most tasteless people on earth.
