permalink Directed by: James Wong
Produced by: Stephen Chow & James Wong
Release date: April 8, 2009
Running time: 100 minutes

Goku (Justin Chatwin) goes on a journey to find Master Roshi (Chow Yun-Fat) and gather the seven mystical Dragon Balls before the evil Lord Piccolo (James Marsters) can. Along his way, he meets Bulma (Emmy Rossum) who then joins him to help him in his mission. When arriving at Roshi's place, he is not welcomed with an embrace but has to fight Roshi. Roshi soon learns that Goku is the grandson of Gohan (Randall Duk Kim) and thus trains him to prepare him for the ultimate battle with Lord Piccolo to prevent him from collecting the powerful Dragon Balls.

permalink OMG, I didn't even know about this! I told my sister, and she said our little brother had told her about it but she didn't believe him.

I didn't even have a desire to see the Speed Racer movie after I saw the trailer, and that was one of my favorite shows as a kid!

I guess I better go find a Dragonball trailer on YouTube....

Eh, I don't think I like this. [edit]Last edit by EclecticEnergy on Wednesday 14 Jan, 2009 at 21:48 -93.3%[/edit]

permalink I have seen the trailer and was a bit disappointed, not exactly what I was hoping to see. Hopefully, it will not be that bad. Americans were never good with making re-makes or live-actions out of Japanese animes/films.

permalink I too was disappointed when I saw the trailer. But, hopefully, it does well despite that. As then it will open the door for more Live Action anime based moives, or even just anime movies to be made.

permalink I also agree that most of the footage available seems a bit disappointing...
I'm a big DBZ fan (the first anime I watched!) and I hate to see the characters and story line messed up in a movie. But I keep my hopes up and I'll go see it when it hits the theaters in April.

I agree 110%.

I saw a commercial for it; it looked horrible.

permalink I kind of annoys me using Western actors to act some of the Japanese characters. It takes the fun out. Truthfully, I really don't like it. I'm sure it won't be popular.

permalink I am not sure if it is worth watching this movie after seeing the trailer. I was really disappointed. I guess I will still watch it, but I have a bad feeling about it already.

permalink I will watch it, but I don't have high expectations..
Like Akira Toriyama said:

"As the original creator, I had a feeling of "Huh?" upon seeing the screenplay and the character designs, but the director, all the actors, the staff, and the rest are nothing but "ultra" high-caliber people. Maybe the right way for me and all the fans to appreciate it is as a New Dragonball of a different dimension. Perhaps, this might become a great masterpiece of power! Hey, I look forward to it!!"

as you probably read in JPA's news section.

After watching the trailer, I feel that everything is so different than the anime/manga.

It's like you'll have to watch it in a neutral state of mind in order to like it because it will just irritate you otherwise or something.. but well u never actually know before you've seen it urself.

*There will be a sequel of this movie too O_O

permalink But! I'm glad they're dropping the super sayian part of it, it would just look so fake, I just hope that the other animation is good, like the kame-hame-ha and stuff...

(sorry about the double post, too lazy to edit XD)

permalink I've seen some of the previews of Dragon Ball Evolution.

I thought it would be just the same as the Animé.
But I hardly see any of the characters back in it, which is a dissapointment.
I would've rather had a movie based on the Anime other than something completely different. But I think I'll go watch it anyway :)

permalink This is one of the worst movies I'll ever see this year and a disgrace to the Dragonball franchise. What a disappointment to all the fans who expected something better. I'm hoping that the Japanese will do their own version in the future. A gigantic mess. Steer clear.

permalink I watched it, but it was pretty long time ago :RBundecided: I don't know, it was worth watching, but definately not my favourite. And I can't compare it to anime or manga, coz I haven't read&watched them.
It looked like cosplay in some parts.

permalink I watched the movie more than once to see if I would like it after watching it the first time and my opinion after watching it the first time stayed the same: It sucked and strayed too far away from the plot of Dragon Ball. Americans just cannot pull off Anime to live action movies. :\

permalink Why is there even a forum topic for this spectacular flop of an adaptation? Maybe I should lock it right now so that people won't have to suffer seeing this thread (joke) :P

Goku is being bullied at [i]school[/i] in that movie because he's an absolute jerk... if that's any indication it's best that you just forget this movie ever existed.
