G-Savior might be the only passable live-action anime adaptation I've seen.
I remember people back in the day really hating on it, but it wasn't even that bad in my eyes.
It was just a typical sci-fi b-movie in a Gundam skin.
The early CG was poor, but other than that there was nothing that put me off about it.
>>
>>20390416
It also helps that Gundam as a franchise was already embracing AUs and multiple stories within UC continuity, so it's not like they had to adhere to any strict rules with trying to bring characters from the anime to the screen.
Going with an original story was a smart move here.
And now its got me thinking of how the new film will tackle this.
>>
yeah G-Savior was pretty good actually. Much better than most of Star Trek, and lots of other shitty sci-fi shows running at the same time and on similar budgets.
>>
>>20390416
I don't think the CG was poor for its time, and this might only be me but I don't think the CG has aged as terribly as it could have. I think the advantage it had was that it Hollywood-level CG for a TV special in 1999, so it looks relatively good for the medium of its kind. Most of the CG shots are consistent, with any green screening of actors being quite minimal so as to not stick out like a sore thumb, and it helps the colours during these sequences are quite dark and muted. The CG looks much better in motion than it does in still shots, those Sunrise art books have aged a little poorly as a result but it's not the worst thing in the world. I'm someone who likes PS1 FMV-level CG so this stuff isn't totally lost to me. I think the one thing that is noticeable about the CG is that the proportions of some of the suits are a little off when compared to the lineart, this could purely be put down to the overseas CG team designing something like mobile suits for the first time on computers.

G-Saviour isn't really an adaptation though, it's an original story in the UC timeline.

fair point, but that doesn't have any relevance to its quality. OP was talking about how it's too hated and without reason.

Incorrect it is.

>>20390885

Speed Racer had John Goodman wrestling ninjas. It's worth it for that alone, but I think it's a visually spectacular movie that nails anime sensibilities throughout, and it's story has just the right amount of cheese to balance out it's emotion too. I love watching both the flip-page race start and actual race finale on YouTube regularly.

I noticed that too, but for some reason it seems the proportions of the CG models and how they appear on screen is different.
I wonder if they did some weird distortion effect with the virtual camera lens.

It was already implied in the OP that I obviously haven't seen every live action anime.

No, do you need pictorial accompaniment to understand something?

It's possible. One model which comes to the mind is the one used for the Freedom, the hands, arm, face and torso all differ from the lineart in some way.

Guyver: Dark Hero
Casshern
Speed Racer
Alita

There's at least four of these to my knowledge that everyone unanimously agrees do a good job at respecting the source material, doing it's own thing and being enough of an adaptation to please people. G Savior included (it's main crime is being kinda boring ngl).

Alita is wrong
there are more but they aren't /m/

I didn't even argue you need to watch any in the first place; just agree that there are other good live action anime films. And disagree with the idea that opinions on them can be correct or incorrect.

The game storyline is better. It also features the only other Gundam (pic related) who's as angry as Guneasy.

There's a great deal of background and story to G-Saviour, which will probably never be revisited in full, but it's good that reference materials have become accessible so that the scope of it can be more easily understood. The proof-of-concept trailer features an exclusive scenario in which a criminal group called Marchosias uses Bugus to terrorise Side 4. This is an interesting concept, as I like to think that in between the liquidation of the EFF and the formation of CONSENT, groups of brigand mobile suit pilots attack colonies lawlessly using any form of stolen weaponry and technology, with the CONSENT either stamping it out almost entirely or absorbing thuggish elements into its army. If G-Saviour was actually two separate 60-minute parts instead of a singular 90-minute feature, it would have been interesting if that Marchosias concept could have been retained in some way. I could imagine following Mark and Cynthia's departure from Earth, and on their way to Side 4, the CAF secretly conspiring to arm Marchosias with mobile suits and instructing them to deal with the rebels as violently as possible. In exchange, they will turn a blind eye to the activities of Marchosias if they can get rid of Mark and Cynthia without the CAF getting their hands dirty (for now). This is purely my imagining but it would be one way of retaining this scenario of Bugus attacking Side 4 and the G-Saviour Terrain Mode receiving a more fleshed out introduction.

Alita is an ugly movie, that's all. The manga was not ugly. Therefor it disrespects the source material.
I haven't seen the live-action Yamato film.

No, not yet at least. The Newtype 100% Collection guide collects the stills from it, and Inoue talks about it in the same book, but no video of it has been available. Some Japanese magazines from 1997/98 ran articles on it, but I saw these magazines so long ago that I couldn't tell you the names of them. Elements of the trailer are still in the film (such as the G-Saviour mode switch sequence) as well as several shorter sequences, so there's that at least.

I fucking hope they revisit the G3 design sometime in the franchise's foreseeable future. Providence and Blitz Gundam kinda hit the same design quirks but they're unfortunately stuck in the worst AU.

I unironically like G-Saviour. Been a while since I watched it last and will probably watch it once I finish moving. I really hope one day they release an MG or RE/100 G-Saviour some day.

Interesting how the legs really show the F91 influences. Same as the back fin array that remains.
>>20417801
Funny they mention how the frame resembles the PG Gundam W.
>>
>>20428468
It's interesting to see the way those F91 elements persisted, even parts of the F90 were effectively revived in the G3-Saviour Ground Attack Mode.
>>
It was an OK film but I think there should be more action scenes.

>>20432756
Because that was always Bandai changing its approach to the production of plastic scale models.

In-universe though, presumably MS ballooned in size again as part of technological development slowing down. Resources became limited, hence the theme of MS development continuing through the retrofitting of older parts to create new models that didn't lack on performance.
