Storyline

Years after the war against the Solnoids, the descendents of the Earth heroes have created their own crisis. After World War III breaks out and practically annhilates each side, their own weapons, which were derived from an ancient alien ship found on the moon, literally turn against them. Now, the humans are in a losing war against the machines who are out to exterminate them. In this time of seemingly certain doom, we focus on the trials of young soldiers as they play their part in one last effort for their species to leave Earth and survive.

I expected so much
17 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I first heard of New Gall Force in 2001 when I saw a trailer for it. The trailer showed mechanoids fighting the human race, rockets and lasers were being fired everywhere as the screen fuzzed and exploded before my eyes. I just had to see this anime, I was really hyped up about it. 4 years later I stumbled upon it in my friends house, I immediately stole it and ran for the door. But unfortunately as I discovered later it was not worth the effort.

SPOILERS AHEAD!!!

New Gall Force is split up into 3 episodes Earth 1, Earth 2 and Earth 3. I decided I wouldn't rush the whole thing, so I watched an episode each night. The plot focuses around a group of soldiers who stay on earth after the human race has evacuated to mars, the squadron of hard asses (most of them female I might add) are left to battle against the MME (cyborgs who are trying to eradicate the human race) The MME are led by the super computer Gorn who has plans for the squadrons leader Sandy Newman. It turns out these plans are to make her float in the air a bit just before the computer decides to blow itself up. The squadron begin randomly firing at the base, it collapses, the narrator gives a big anime speech about life.

The end

And that's pretty much what happens over the span of two hours and forty five minuets, no that really is it. This anime was bad, really, really bad. Even though Earth 2 had its minor moments of excitement it still can't make up for the rest of the film. There are but few plot twists one of which explains that the MME were created by the human race. This didn't exactly have me slapping my face in disbelief since every fan of anime, no wait every human being will figure this out even before watching this film.

In short this was a really badly animated film with scenes that seem to last hours. Characters just standing, staring at each other and mumbling on about nothing, and the constant repeat of the phrase "enough talk we need action" before more talking entails is enough to put you into a deep deep coma. Another problem with New Gall Force is that the characters change their personality completely every episode. This is more apparent with the main character Sandy Newman who in Earth 1 is a rough tough get in my way and your dead warrior, then in Earth 2 she suddenly becomes a hyper innocent little girl, who wants everyone to share and care. The voice acting is terrible; most animes suffer from this problem and I try not to degrade them because of it, but the voice acting on New Gall Force is so shamefully bad It will actually give viewers severe headaches. One woman in particular sounds like something crawled down her throat and slowly died there. Corners are cut everywhere, I actually think they ran out of money towards the end because the credits are slowed down for earth 2 and 3 so much that they fill 1/4 of the episodes.

The human mind can only take so much, and no I don't mean excitement.
