This appears to be a compilation film of events from the TV anime considering the fast pacing of events, consistency errors between events and jarring transitions. As you can expect from a Leiji Matsumoto work, the movie tries to play up the drama on the Yamato crew's struggles to get to Iskandar yet with very little depth on the characters (a major weakness I've spotted in many of Matsumoto's works), their struggles and deaths didn't really effect me too much. Unless you're a Yamato or Leiji Matsumoto fan, I wouldn't bother wasting time on this film.
