2000 years ago a menacing alien threat named Piccolo and a destructive god named Oozaru laid waste to the earth before being imprisoned by a loyal order of monks. Now Piccolo is loose and is after the seven mystical Dragonballs, which will grant the owner a wish, and naturally Piccolo wants to destroy the earth again. It’s up to Goku, a young Ki master with a secret and his scrappy band of adventurers to stop Piccolo and collect the Dragonballs.
Yes it is the most awaited (maybe) movie by some of you folks out there. Well here’s the deal. At first I was thrilled when I heard there was gonna be an adaptation of the Dragonball Anime Series (any fan of it would be) going to hit the big screen in Live-Action. If your a die hard fan of the Anime Series the first thing that would come to your mind would be the fight scene’s in the movie because the Anime had lots of it, from exploding worlds to saiyans to lots of aliens to back from the dead.
Now comes the trailer’s.. Who’s Goku? I got disappointed with the movie the first time a saw the trailer come out. I felt it was different from the Anime (very different in all ways). It was really an evolution, super evolution from the Anime Series.
Dragonball Evolution ruined the Dragonball Saga. Where’s Kinton Cloud? Where’s the turtle shell on the back of Master Roshi? What about Goku’s hair? Piccolo or Frankenstein? Who is the guy acting as Yamcha? These are just a few questions that’s bugging me big time with this new movie coming out.
Now the movie has gone out in some countries. Thank’s to Karlow he gave me a fast link, a review actually about the Dragonball Evolution Movie.
According to Anime News Network: Here’s what happened instead: a bunch of talentless hacks with studio money slapped together a big steaming pile of baffling garbage that fails utterly on every possible level and will please no one at all. AND — It’s a clunky, tiresome, badly executed, horribly written pile of shame that deserves no quarter.
You can read the full review here. Well they were right and the fans were right too. A lot of negative stuff has been said. It looked like a waste of cash. But still its up to the viewers who decide on this one. Maybe even Banana’s in Pajamas looks better than this one.
What went wrong 20th Century Fox? Maybe it was really to hard to get this movie running. It needed a lot of budget, hard work, more talented stars maybe? That’s gonna be a challenge to whomever’s gonna remake the movie and make it into a real deal planet anihilating dragonball kickass movie.
Rating from ANN:
The Positive ( + ) Might be fun when you’re hammered and surrounded by friends. Or suicidal, and need something to push you over the edge.
The Negative ( – ) Basically everything.
