Yes, but I think it was looked at from more of an "old-school Gundam fan"
point of view. Gundam 0083 was made for an action-oriented 90s audience
who's probably been brought up on Hollywood blockbusters. As such, I would
consider it a very good Hollywood-style take on Gundam. Lots of special
effects (bordering on obscene), solid characterizations (they DO have
personality) and a sturdy plot. Love triangle is tacked on, but then many
movie love triangles are as well.

Yeah, but it's not totally unrealistic. Many soldiers are like that as well.
