First of, why is the main character a white man when the setting is in Asia, and the main character's father is Oriental? …

There's surprisingly little evolving going on in "Dragonball: Evolution." If anything, it de-evolves, taking an archetypal hero's journey and stripping it down past the bare minimum. So many details are either quickly alluded to or altogether overlooked, which essentially leaves us with a fairly bland action adventure story that throws in a little self-discovery for good measure. Based on the "Dragon Ball" graphic novels written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama, "Dragonball: Evolution" is an airy, …
