But why make a movie now? Dragonball Z isn't a big thing right now. I would have reccomended like 6 or 7 years maby but why now?

The series is still pretty big in Japan.

There still making the fighting games for the series, and an online MMO is coming soon as well.

I can answer all of your questions with 1 answer.
Get a better anime!
(I have no right to say that, since I haven't seen DBZ since.... WHAT 9000?)

fettouhi
10-24-2008, 03:45 AM
First of all they should never have made this into a real live movie I think it would have been better to go GCI because they could have done all the things blue hare and that stuff.

second if you gonna start somewhere start at the beginning and that is not dbz but dragonball. the problem is that dbz go so ppopular over in the US that most people think that its the start of dragonball.

Rust
10-24-2008, 07:39 AM
Yeah that's right Fettouhi, it's kinda weird, they showed DBZ here like 2 years before they had any DB on...

And Ninboy.

It is a good anime...although the Majin Buu stuff was a bit.. :roll: and GT :x

fettouhi
10-24-2008, 08:04 AM
well I liked it all I'm gonna get it on DVD/blueray and add it to my collection its a 508 episodes + specials and movies.

Kurono
10-24-2008, 10:03 AM
They could easily do Blue hair on bulma without CGI. My hair used to be blue!

My only real gripe so far since I haven't really seen anything on it is calling it DragonBall when it's clearly DBZ. I mean seriously.

Too be honest, I actually liked DB more than DBZ.

the things that are wrong with this Movie:

1) Piccolo (Obviously)

2) Bulma's hair and booty

3) Emo Goku

4) Asians Everywhere (lol I'm not being racist I'm stating that anyone who isn't Goku, Bulma, or Piccolo are asian)

5) no Krillin/Kuririn

6) lack of Tenshinhan

7) Mai, secondary human villain (from the books/cartoon) becomes a f****** shapeshifter and major villain!? how the hell does that happen? _dead_

9. the makers probably don't know what dragon ball is

10) Chrisoper Sabat as Shenlong

11) the sequel (if there is one god forbid) will seal anime's fate for me...

10-26-2008, 10:43 PM
12. the dvd release 0.0

13. if the movie is geared towards little kids

14. the flood of dbz toys that will come after and during the movie

15. mcdonalds dbz toys

.... the list goes on..... and makes me wanna shoot myself

haha this is gonna be so bad. I promised myself I'd go see it though. I'm probably gonna have fun either way, because it looks like one of those movies that are unintentionally funny. _awesome_
wow. If anything is epic fail it is most definitely this.
(I still can't wait!)

Kurono
01-03-2009, 03:45 PM
I need to forget everything I've ever seen of this movie and go in with no expectations.
That way I won't be disappointed when it's a complete failure.

You're a smart man... I wish I could pretend I hadn't ever heard of it... I still MUST see it! Dragon Ball Pride! As much as will probably want to later gouge my eyes out, I have to support the anime I watched as a little one...

I just saw a preview of this when I saw Hotel For Dogs. And...I became speechless; why does there have to be a movie? I was scarred from the terrible anime series, now it's given a film?! This was how I felt after the logo appeared: _dead_

Ferenc
01-27-2009, 08:22 PM
Well I will go and see this movie but I'm pretty sure that I'm going to think it's the greatest movie ever no mater how terrible it is as I will be blinded by nostalgia.

This is seemingly not one of the movies with cult fame besides that it's based on a super famous franchise.

..And still I have to watch it, it's worth watching people flying and blasting energy balls from their palms. :D

03-15-2009, 08:33 AM
Honestly, I dont think Ill be putting me money on it because what if I do go see it, and it's worse than I thought?

Though, those Dragon Balls look epic, and I havent seen them since the original series on CN.

whitemage730
03-15-2009, 09:05 AM
:shock:
Well, were you expecting it to be good? :lol:
I honestly doubt that it will be worth my time at all. I just want to go to show my Dragon Ball Pride!!!
And watch people get blown up by Kame-hame-ha's...
_awesome_

Haruka
03-15-2009, 09:10 AM
The comments on the vid are the comedy _awesome_

"Dude, Zak Snyder does the Watchmen and than the Dragonball Series gets this? It looks like a lameass Jackie Chan movie from 1997. Why is Bulma fighting? Why are there tricked out Dodge Chargers? Why isn’t Piccolo green? and where is his sweet turban?

This will OBVIOUSLY flop, DBZ has been around in America for over a decade now, the only people who will give a sh*t about this movie are the die hard fans who grew up with it and they’ve been given the metaphorical middle finger by Hollywood. This trailer is just downright OFFENSIVE. Little kids won’t even go to see this they are too stuck on Yu Gi OH and kicking my a*s at Halo 3. "

It's like a trainwreck, it's so horrible, but you just can't bring yourself to turn away.

In all seriousness though, people have already decided where they stand. They either love it or hate it, the former will see it to support the movie, the latter will see it to make fun of the movie. Either way, they got your money.

I just saw the movie... I don't know how many of you have seen this yet, since it's only out in Asia right now (no, I'm not Asian nor do I live in Asia), but I have to say that this movie was a bit disappointing. I had already held low expectations for this movie, being a huge fan of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, but this movie was disappointingly SHORT. The movie was only 70 minutes long (inclucing the 10 minute credits) and the acting was very corny. The fighting scenes were extremely short and stupid. Some things were completely wrong with the Dragon Ball time line, although some things were held to the true story (was expected). Piccolo was amazingly stupid... They really needed to drag things out a bit longer. They came to the point way too fast and things came together way too fast (sorry if that seemds redundant lol).

I'll leave it at that for now, seeing how it's a bit hard to talk about it without revealing anything to those who want to watch the movie. Overall, I would give the movie 2 out of 5 stars.

Oh, and here's a quote from someone on another forum that replied to my review :


Yeah, I watched it the other night for the lulz.

I know very little about the DBZ world, so I can't sympathize with the fans who are pained over how they butchered the story. But from a strictly movie-goer aspect, it was absolute garbage. The only redemption for me was that it was a short movie (70 minutes if I remember right?).

...I had trouble laughing at how dumb it was even. Everything was rushed, all their attempts at action were terrible and the "romance" was retarded. The only good part was how they basically showed us that the promise of sex can inspire people to accomplish great feats (notice how quickly Goku mastered the Kamehameha once she offered sex as a reward??). Yeah.

Honestly people, don't waste your time unless you're insanely bored like I was. And absolutely do not spend money to see this movie. Pirate the hell out of it, if you must.

I'm a huge Dragonball fan and I've seen the majority of the movie. And I can say it was "Meh". It's not Street Fighter bad, but it isn't great, either.Chow Yun Fat, while a great actor, is not a good Master Roshi. Justin Chatwin isn't as bad as people make him out to be. Yamcha is spot on and Piccolo is great.

The plot's a little wonky, but so were all the animated Dragonball movies like Path to Power and Mystical Adventure. It's entertaining for what it is. It isn't Oscar worthy or anywhere near that. It's just something to see on a Friday night when you've got nothing better to do.

Despite it being "Meh", I'll still shell out ten bucks to see it when it comes out.

I knew the movie probably wouldn't be incredible, but when I found out the direction it was taking, I, as anyone would thought _objection_ almost imediatley. Its quite ridiculous, IMO, and though I doubted I'd see it before, now I know I won't.

I think that they did a cool job on Goku's hair... Sadly, I can't say the same for Piccolo's ears. They give me nightmares. Nevertheless I'm still going to see the movie when it hits up the theaters.

Epic Fail Incoming! *preparing to ROFL when I'll see the movie*

I don't know much of the DB and DBZ series but only the trailer show wrong things even for people that don't know much like me.

I've readed some mangas and It seems that nothing in the trailer is with the story of the mangas.

PLEASE HOLLYWOOD! NEXT TIME YOU ADAPT A MANGA FOR CINEMA, PLEASE JUST TAKE THE ORIGINAL STORY AND DON'T EVER TRY TO CREATE A NEW ONE!
Hollywood fail meter on Video Games Series and Mangas is already full... don't try to bust it.

Ya I think the only way this movie could be good would be if The show was never made then we would not know what to expect and would not be let down after watching it because of how diffrent from the anime it was, but that would mean no DragonBall or DragonBall Z and thats just not a world i want to live in lol

Tanexion
03-23-2009, 02:00 PM
It looks like it's following a Hollywood superhero movie formula. Underdog guy in high school who gets picked on by the popular crowd of guys, then eventually learns that he's destined for greatness and sets out on some epic journey, soon returning with a renewed sense of self-confidence to do something to embarrass the leader of the popular guys in front of the whole school...
Maybe I'm off, but that's what I got from the trailers and tv spots..

Kylethedarkn
03-23-2009, 09:57 PM
Ok I saw an ad on tv that didn't even have anything relating to dragonball z in it. It looked like a generic hero movie and then was like dragonball evolution.

03-25-2009, 09:13 PM
Dragon Ball, despite being one of the most famous animes ever, already gets a bit of unfair scrutiny from people who have never actually seen it, but are like, "Oh... must be a nerd thing."

All this movie will do is back false beliefs

killerwombat
03-26-2009, 12:38 AM
They made goku a teenager? In a high school? Is there any relation to the actual series except the dragon balls and the names? No? I must do something about this.

I watched this movie last night cause I happened to umm lets say acquired it and when I was done watching it not only was I happy I didnt pay to see it but I wanted they hours of my life back from watching it. There are unlicensed dragonball movies made a few years back that are way better then this movie.

I haven't seen the film (nor do I believe that I will), but the trailer speaks for itself.

Teenage Goku + Spiky Hair That is Non-Blonde + Teenage Punk Kids With Easy Access to Japanese Swords + Zero Content From Original Series = High Probability for Complete Failure
