This music is the best film score performance I have ever heard. Enjoy.
The movie picks up where the great series ended, there's being peace between the colonies and earth for a year now and everyone is happy with their lives. The Gundams are sent to the sun for destruction since they're no longer needed to maintain the peace. But before the Gundams are to be destroyed a new presence threatens to shatter the peace by kidnapping Relena and waging war on earth. This new presence which threatens to shatter the peace treaty and destroy the sacrifice that was made by the brave men a year ago is also the same group of rebels that was lead by Zachs the previous year. This time around the now good Zachs is no longer their leader and he is replaced by a little girl whose more of a figure head. The little girl is the daughter of the late Treize Khushrenada. She's claims that she's doing her father's will even though her father gave his life to maintain peace for the colonies and earth. she and her rebel forces have an abundance of mobile suits and space crafts ready for an all out assault on earth, this off course leads to be the Gundams being needed again and the characters coming out of their peaceful retreat to maintain the peace.
Fans of the series will also be delighted to hear that we spend time with each of the five pilots and get to learn where they're from. At least we get to learn where Trowa is from, and Zachs is back and badder than ever. The Gundams themselves have undergone some sort of face lift and I'm really glad they did because they look a lot cooler in this than they did in the anime show. The best upgrade is without a doubt Wingzero who actually is equipped with wings. That really doesn't make sense when you think about it but hey it's a cartoon so stuff like that should be overlooked.
This movie was made for fans of the series and nothing more. If you're someone who thinks a Gundam is some form of venereal disease then you need to go back to watching Pokemon. The one thing that drew me in the most was the score. From the very start of the movie, you know that this is going to be a great musical experience just by the dreamlike violins that gently caress the speakers to the ethereal use of wind instruments. It's like Danny Elfman and John Williams meet Phillip Glass and James Howard Newton. Just makes me glad to be a film music fan. The orchestral elements and electronic elements are mixed together nicely because sometimes they will have nice strings and horns going then kick some nice electric and bass guitar. American composer need to take note to the music because this is a great example of how to mix orchestral and electronic elements to form a pleasing listening experience.
Don't watch it if you haven't seen the TV series but if you have and you loved it then you should have no problem loving this.
A great culmination for the series of Gundam Wing.
This movie reintroduces us to our favorite characters, albeit a little more experienced and jaded. While introducing us to some new characters with ties to the original series.
It picks up right after the war at the end of the series.
The year is AC 196, the one year anniversary of the end of OZ. The Gundams are on their way to the sun to be destroyed. But, as per the norm in the series when all is looking well for our heroes, that is when things really start to go badly for the Earth Sphere Alliance, and our heroes must somehow find a way to rescue their Gundams and finally settle any and all uprisings of OZ.
I would HIGHLY recommend this movie to ALL fans of the series, but also to fans of MANGA and/or anime. The movie stands well on its own, but is also a fitting ending to the series.
This movie is the conclusion of the internationally acclaimed Gundam Wing series. Heero and the others teams up for the last time to end the reign of OZ once and for all. But in the effort to do so, unfortunately, a new faction rose to power: Mariemaia Khushrenada seizes control of the Unified Earth Sphere and its colonies. Reigning with autocracy, the Gundam pilots takes a stand against the last battle of their lives to end the war once and for all...
This is from my own words and whoever is reading this can actually see how I love this movie and the series. While the story revolves around the Gundam pilots, it has a mix of politics and a bit of romance which is typical in the Gundam saga. But that shouldn't hinder you all to watch this anime lagend, so buy it now!
Some people don't realize it, but this movie has a great meaning to it. In order to have understood the real meaning of this move, you would have to have watched the Gundam Wing series, all 50 episodes. The Gundams and it's pilots never wanted to cause a war...the were all achieving peace from the beginning to the very end. All were able to overcome obstacles that stood in their way...even when they all had different perceived different views of each other at times. Would highly recommend to watch to any anime fan!
This is a movie based on the popular anime series Gundam Wing. Endless Waltz ties up the lose ends of the series and adds in more conflicts which occur once the battle of the original series is over and won. It has beautiful animation, and there really is no way to do it justice in a review, its one of those things you have to see to believe.
