DBZ FANS WILL BE DISSAPOINTED

on 11/9/2011

As a diehard DBZ fan I was looking forward to this being a GREAT movie... I was very disappointed. The story line was nothing like the the tv series and actors didnt resemble the anime very well either. Cheap effects as well. Its a joke when Shenron the dragon appears at the end.. it just looks like a big water snake. They need to make a REAL DBZ movie.. not a cheap knock off like this. Read More

WHY IS GOKU WHITE AND IN HIGH SCHOOL??!!??

on 12/28/2011

My god... oh my god. I thought I was gonna cry when I saw the trailer for this movie and I did cry when i saw a part of this movie on TV. My childhood was destroyed by this so called "DBZ movie" =( DBZ is americanized to a point where you cant even recognize this as a dbz movie. Plot sucks, dialogue sucks, acting sucks, special effects suck etc. Ever since I was a kid, a dbz live action was always rumored to be in the works but never panned out. I always anticipated a live action and now that it came out I wish it never came out... DBZ fans will be disappointed and everyone else will hate it Read More

Editors Note
Note Based on the renowned Japanese manga/anime franchise, the live-action DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION follows the adventures of young Goku (Justin Chatwin of WAR OF THE WORLDS), who is drawn into the legacy of the mystical spheres of the title, and trains to become a powerful warrior with the aid of the wise but lewd Master Roshi (Chow Yun-Fat) and the weapons-loving Bulma (Emmy Rossum), among others. This small band of fighters must face off against the evil warlord Piccolo (James Marsters) and his minions to avert the end of the world.^The first Hollywood feature-film adaptation of the venerable DRAGONBALL series, EVOLUTION is helmed by director James Wong (FINAL DESTINATION, THE ONE) with a nod to the playful work of coproducer Stephen Chow (KUNG FU HUSTLE). A movie where visual effects and plot easily eclipse the acting and script, EVOLUTION will appeal to those seeking a combat-heavy spectacle, though the presence of Yun Fat, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER alum Marsters, and former reality-TV star Jamie Chung help to elevate the proceedings. Although diehard fans may not be pleased with the film, which misses peak DRAGONBALL popularity by about 15 years, EVOLUTION, like its fellow 2009 movie STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI, serves as fine entertainment for ardent martial-arts/video-game enthusiasts and tween boys.

ReviewSource A Nutshell Review
Review Hollywood plundering Japanese pop culture isn't something new. From "Americanizing" television series for the kids from Power Rangers to Ultraman, and adapting famed characters from Japanese film, games and manga to frequent disastrous effect, it still wouldn't stop the studios from going after one property after another. This time round it's the well-loved Dragonball series, because the assumption is that the built-in fan base would translate to instant dollars at the box office. Not...This is basically a movie that only children below the age of 5 will enjoy tremendously, despite having to see 6 half-balls, contributed courtesy of the 3 lead female characters, being continuously flashed on screen, thanks to some neck plunging wardrobe (where's that malfunction when you need one?) Totally bland and really uninteresting, I would suggest sticking to the manga instead...You have to give the filmmakers a little bit of credit though, being either foolhardy, or just plain ballsy. It's a given that they cannot condense and distill the rich content into a surprisingly less than 90 minute movie, and live in the hopes of producing a sequel, or to generate a franchise (i.e. don't leave the cinema hall when the end credits start to roll). But what they successfully do, is to super-summarize the entire mythos by throwing out everything except the main gist of the entire manga, making it extremely simplistic in poor lazy-man standards in adaptation.
