Surprise, surprise! The Dragonball movie didn't suck. I went and saw the movie this afternoon, with the lowest expectations. However, after the 83 minute film my friend and I were very pleased. I don't want to get into the plot, but I see the movie as a different universe. A re-writing of the classic Dragonball story we all know. I know most people will probably disagree, but if you look at it from the point of view I did, you'll probably find some enjoyment in it. It's a silly movie that doesn't take itself too seriously, and that's for the best. Not saying it's a great movie, but surly wasn't the turd I thought it would be. A lot of the original manga is altered, but it's for the best in a live-action movie transition.

I actually want to see it and I think having extremely low expectations works for the movie.

DBZ was never known for having a great story anyway.  I saw the trailer and thought it looked pretty dumb.  I'll wait for some reviews before making my decision on whether or not I'll watch it.

Saying that movie was anything above mediocre is a disgrace to the series.

You must have bad taste in movies

I still refuse to see it, in the fear of wasting time.

The only Dragonball movie i will ever see, is one that takes the source material seriously, and makes a faithful adaption. It could be really good if done right. I won't be surprised if within a decade a producer comes along and says, yo lets redo this shit right. Hulk style.

Say Jesus, you just reminded me of the first time I saw the Passion of the Christ. They altered so much of the source material, it just didn't do you justice man.

Is it better or worse than the attrocious The Forbidden Kingdom? I'm getting a similar vibe from the few things I've seen of it.

Well you can go ahead and think that, and I'll think something else.

I'm guessing it might be OK for anyone who has no clue what Dragonball is/about. But if I saw it I would compare it to the cartoon series of my childhood.

Posted by EvilTwin

The problem is, did this movie really need to be made?

Posted by Systech

I don't believe you at all.

IGN actually gave it a somewhat positive review (for a videogame movie).

"Will people find reasons to hate
Dragonball? Absolutely. And will others find reasons to enjoy it? You bet. But we suspect that the younger, less discriminating fans in the audience will like it well enough and that their parents just might, surprisingly, have a good time as well. The older, more set-in-their-ways crowd will undoubtedly pick it apart, but at the very least, we here at IGN think there's something to enjoy, if not necessarily love, about Dragonball: Evolution. "

Posted by TheGreatGuero

I'm not convinced and can't imagine that I'll ever watch it. Unless there are some steamy scenes with Emmy Rossum...

Posted by Oriental_Jams

Well, I'm still not paying or wasting bandwidth on it.

Posted by Kombat

I saw it.  It does suck.

Posted by CL60

This movie is a slap in the face of all Dragonball fans, simple as that. It is a disgrace to the Dragonball name.

don't listen to this guy. he's a stupid zombie.

Yeah im disgusted at this movie. I wish DB could make a comeback. Why don't they do a rettelling of the story in a differen way in a brand new aniem cartoon?

I really wasn't saying this movie was awesome. Just saying it wasn't the shit fest I thought it would be. Some of you don't have to be assholes. Some of you need to be open minded.

That pretty much sums it up.
Posted by CL60

I am open minded, I'm just saying that this movie is blatantly a disgrace to the Dragonball franchise.

Nobody can respond to that? Nobody's seen that movie?

Posted by CL60

The Forbidden Kingdom is better than this.

Posted by Al3xand3r

Damn... Not gonna watch then :S

Posted by raven_squad

The trailer made me want to scoop my eyeballs from my skull with a teaspoon. Will not ever be watching the full movie. 

Posted by CL60

Nobody should watch the full movie...ever.

Posted by Metroid545

I am goign to make it my personal quest to hunt down every copy of that movie and burn it
the show sucked and the movie is god awful
if you wanted to waste money you should have given it to me rather than support that disgrace

Wait, yes the movie sucked...but did you just say the show sucked? God no Metroid......just...no.....

@ Metriod

I don't think you've seen the movie. Thus, you are being a troll. Fail.

Posted by LiquidPrince

It's not a Dragon Ball movie whatsoever, but it might be a decent action movie.

Posted by Black_Rose

Actually, it's better than I expected, but still...really shitty.

Was there anything redeeming about it? Good effects, good acting, good plot, good anything?

Well, the soundtrack was good and it had a few funny moments classic of the DB series...also, Emmy Rossum is mad hot.

But besides that, nothing really stands out. The story, acting, effects and especially dialogue are all subpar. More annoying than all is that is barely over an hour long, definitely not worth the money.

I watched it a few weeks back when it was leaked onto the net because it was in theaters in Japan at the start of march or so if i remember. I went in thinking it was going to be kinda of a disappointment and well I was right. From a source material stand point it only really sort of covers things from Dragon ball, but besides that the acting was kinda blah and just a whole lot of bad choices made on how to make characters act and look made me a little sad that I sat and watched the whole movie.

Posted by Cerza

I'm sorry, but I can't agree. From what I saw of the trailer it told me that making this movie was a bad idea and before that it was a bad idea and even before it was a bad idea it was a bad idea. In short, NOT TOUCHING IT!!!

Posted by Existential

You know the guy who wrote this movie script was paid $500,000 for this piece garbage. I wish they chose to do the movie on Saiyan lore or on Bardock.

I agree with you TC, I went into the theater expecting it to be bad. And...surprise!!! It was bad. But it was one of those movies that is bad in a good way. My friends and I definitely enjoyed the movie for what it was.

Posted by Dr_Feelgood38

Saw the movie.  Sorry man, it sucked. I couldn't even stomach the ending. They basically molested my childhood with that movie.

Posted by TheWorstPlayerEver

The question is....Is it worse than Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li?

No that's called Fast and Furious.

DBZ fans and weeaboos will say anything dealing with Japanese cartoons or Japan is good.

Posted by giyanks22

I loved DB, I knew this would suck though

Bulma has a PHD with a fucking minor in tactical weapons.  BEST!  MOVIE!  EVER!

Posted by LiquidPrince

I saw it. It started out pretty good. I was actually really liking it. And then after Yamcha joined every part of the movie turned to shit.

Posted by REDRUN

it was bad, really
