Yes, I have seen the film that has been tormenting fans in their sleep for months. Had this film come out back when I was a massive Z fan I probably would have been completely outraged but now that those days are mainly over, it only left a bad taste. Um I'm not sure how spoiler-ific I want to make this, for all I know there are some of you out there who are genuinely looking forward to seeing it. I guess I'll use the tags as I go along and let you guys decide how much you want to know. Firstly I'll start on a positive, it is suprisingly easy to watch. It doesn't challenge you and so it is very easy going. However the subject matter is so lame and messed up that the ease of viewing probably wont add much comfort to most people. Oh and Chi Chi is pretty damn hot, that's about it for the pro's. I know a lot of people were anxious that Goku would be very different to his anime counter part. This is true, he's been taken out of the wild and thrown into high school, he's socially awkward and lacks self confidence. However there are occasionally times when the care free innocence can be seen but it barely lasts longer than a second. What seems to have happened is that the directer and writers have read a very brief summary of the Dragon ball mythos and attempted to create a workable story to last 1 hour and 20 minutes. However half way through they suffer a bit of an idenity crisis and decided that they'd rather make a film more like Spider-man and Power Rangers. Spoiler Spider-man because they are trying to make the audience relate to Goku by showing him as an insecure nerd, crippled with self doubt and often the laughing stock of the school jocks. Spider-man did this well, Dragonball evolution did not. Theres even a scene where he speaks to Gohan in a dream state almost identical to that of Spider-man 2. Power Rangers because of some of the laugh out loud fight choreography but mainly because of Piccolo. Piccolo is basically a variant of the villains in the very first Power Rangers series. It seems to me that if your ambitious enough to tackle an Anime series that is probably considered "unfilmable" by most then you'd better do your home work. It's very apparant that there isn't much love for the original manga / anime here. As for plot, well it's a complete clusterfuck of the series. Heres a general list off the top of my head of stuff that just got changed under the creative license. Spoiler Theres no mention of Piccolo's better half Kame. The Oozaru is a servant of Piccolo, the word saiyan isn't used. Goku becomes the oozaru in an eclipse instead of the full moon, no tail necessary. No Krillen. Yamcha doesn't fight, he just uses a gun along with Bulma. Chi attacks are actually a form of air bending, like that Avatar show. This one is probably the worst, a Kame-hame-ha wave can be used to revive someone. Theres countless other things that aren't true to the source material but we all knew that based on the trailers anyway. The whole thing about goku being 18 etc just adds to how much this is Dragon ball in name only. Coupled with some awful CGI and horrendous acting, theres no way I can imagine any fan of dragon ball will be happy with what has been done. Is it worth seeing? I think all of you who are going to see it already know that you are. Curiosity killed the cat or in this case curiosity makes the fan boy want to commit suicide. If your an old DB fan like myself, check it out and just laugh at how much they got it wrong. It does have some unintenionally hilarious scenes that almost make it worth it on some level.
