    It's usually used in a positive sense, to indicate that rapid progress is being made in some context:

    The project was given a great deal of forward momentum by the injection of cash from a major donor.

    I'd say it's neutral.

    Momentum, is a force going in a direction. If the direction is not a good one, like the momentum of the car forced it over the cliff, you die, and that is bad. If the momentum, was good, like momentum of his jokes got the audience falling off their chairs with laughter.  That is good.

    It means 'movement'. Sometimes movement is positive, sometimes it isn't.

    With respect to the subject of the sentence, "momentum" is positive. It means that something is moving forward, perhaps increasing in power or popularity. However, if the subject is unpopular, dangerous, or bad, it can be negative.

    "The wall of lava was gaining momentum as it approached the village." If you're the lava, "momentum" is positive. Not so if you're the village.
