4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice but incomplete
It contains the episodes 1,2,3 from what was supposed to become Robotech 2 "the sentinels".
It would continue the saga of robotech and would connect the 3 sagas (Macross, The Masters, New Generation)
Unfortunatelly the project was abbandoned due to lack of money and so only the first 3 episodes where made. Never the less every roboteck fan must see them because...

2.0 out of 5 stars What Was I Thinking?
After watching the complete collection of Robotech the Macross saga and getting really into the story I hated the fact that it had to end, I really wanted to know what was to happen to these characters and I was hoping that this would provide me with such a resolution. Unfortunately this film was designed originally to be a new saga of the Robotech series but...

This review is from: Robotech 2 - The Sentinels [DVD] (DVD)
It contains the episodes 1,2,3 from what was supposed to become Robotech 2 "the sentinels".
It would continue the saga of robotech and would connect the 3 sagas (Macross, The Masters, New Generation)
Unfortunatelly the project was abbandoned due to lack of money and so only the first 3 episodes where made. Never the less every roboteck fan must see them because they show some of the things that happened after the destruction of SDF-1 and 2. ex: rick marries liza, they build SDF-3, they go to the outer space to find the creators of the Zendraeti etc.
The drawing is different than the original robotech. this happened cause the original team was told to redraw the characters,(minmei, rick, lisa, etc) in order they would feat into the american climat of cartoons. oh well, probably this was a big mistake because everybody prefered the old drawing.

This review is from: Robotech 2 - The Sentinels [DVD] (DVD)
After watching the complete collection of Robotech the Macross saga and getting really into the story I hated the fact that it had to end, I really wanted to know what was to happen to these characters and I was hoping that this would provide me with such a resolution. Unfortunately this film was designed originally to be a new saga of the Robotech series but unfortunately the maker ran out of money so this dvd is in fact just the first three eps of a series that was mean't to bridge the gap between macross saga and the later series that focused on a new generation of Robotech pilots.

Little new characterisation is given to the established characters like Rick Hunter and Lisa but instead it spends most of the time setting up the new looming threat which unfortunately was all in vain since the story was never given the chance to expand.

Given how much I payed for this dvd (£30)it really isn't worth the cash, just stick with the boxset, it's all you really need.

This review is from: Robotech 2 - The Sentinels [DVD] (DVD)
Robotech is a landmark in anime history and the official continuation of the original Macross saga was made possible thanks to the genius that was Carl Macek. Robotech II - The Sentinels is the missing gap between Macross & The Masters (2nd generation of Robotech) & fills a few details to bring it more up to speed. My only critisim is that it did not continue due to budget restraints the company went through.

This is the only available DVD where you can buy Robotech II individually. For this, its a collectors item but the lack of special features make for a bland purchase. This movie pilot however is far from bland.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film, bad disk, 3 May 2002
This review is from: Robotech 2 - The Sentinels [DVD] (DVD)
The extras on the DVD may not be much, but the fact that it has an entire series(4 tapes) on one disk is great. The action and mecha designs are fantastic and the charcter designs, too are great. Fans of Gundam and Macross should get this now!
