I want to cry. I hate this movie. There's simply nothing in this scene that tells me "You're are watching live-action DB".
This movie is just a kick to the nuts to everyone who ever waited for a live-action adaption of DB. And I see that even Akira Toriyama acknowledges it.

On another note, I do too wait to watch the new remake of DBZ. I never watched the whole DBZ in Japanese. When I was watching it, I watched the beginning of it with Hebrew dub (FAIL), and the rest with English dub. There might have been a few episodes I watched in Japanese, back then.
I later re-watched episodes some episodes and the movies with Japanese dub and English subs, so I am familiar with the original voices and I'm extremely happy that they managed to get the original cast(or at least most of it) back on.

P.S:
DB: Evolution seems to me like a piece of shit even as a standalone movie. Let's take this scene you posted. It doesn't make any sense. They just jump from one thing to another with no sense.

P.P.S:
DBZ was one of the animes that really got me into watching anime and reading manga, which later brought me to generally being interested with Japan and the Japanese language. So I really don't like Hollywood fucking around with one of my most beloved series.

This review pretty much reassures me everything I thought about this movie.
The reason this movie is a blockbuster at Asia is because of the hype, and nothing else.

What and utter bullcrap of a movie. DB Kai please make up for this pile of shit.

"Might be fun when you're hammered and surrounded by friends. Or suicidal, and need something to push you over the edge."

Do not give your money to the people who made this shit. We don't need more Dragonball Evolutions or Speed Racers.


NEXT UP: Akira, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell



If you have to see this movie for the lulz, please pirate it.


EDIT: What I wish I had gotten

From the parts of this movie I have seen, I think I can say that If I was forced to watch this movie without knowing what it was, I would have thought that this movie wass something someone filmed when they were bored, and not a live action DragonBall Movie

I kept hearing negative feedback from this. Oh well, what did I expect? I also think the movie is a complete waste of film. Anyway, I was complaining this to my friend and he told me to check this out... LOL...

..just when you thought the DB evo movie sucks.

I heard of this adaption a long time ago. Even though I have never got to see it, you can see that they at least tried harder (the Korean version at least) in the costume department than 20th Century Fox. BTW, I read reviews that say the Korean adaption is better.

The Korean Version from way way back is still better than the DB evolution?? Wow... then the movie really did suck! I never got the chance to see it yet... now I'm a little intrigued on how sucky the movie really was.. since I haven't heard at least a one single POSITIVE feedback from it...

Every single word in this article just points out more to me how little-to-nothing do the makers of this movie know about the Dragon Ball franchise and its fans.
