Hmm, after this Ill just have movie #4 to review. *clenches fist* Then my plans to cover all of the world of DBZ will be complete! Er, ahem.
Note to those of you who dont know what Im talking about already. DBZ is a huge series, the full title is Dragon Ball Z. Its spanned over 200 episodes, generated 13 movies, and tossed out a couple of specials here and there. All were waiting for these days is the final movie. Then I think America can officially move on and wrap up its DBZ phase for random youngsters to find in the future. Akira Toriyama, everyone loves you, you know that, haha.
Righto then, I should be in bed but I say Screw sleep more often than not, so here it is, your 2am Movie #11 review. Sha-zam.
*bubble bubble* Is that a Saiyajin tail?!
Man the opening cracks me up when Gohan is bouncing around as the Great Saiyaman
Android #18 is angry. She wants her money that Mr. Satan (Hercule in English yeah, whatever) promised her from when she let him win against her in the World Tournament. Goten, Trunks, Krillin and his daughter Marron are waiting outside for her. While they wait some men show up to offer a challenge to Mr. Satan. Apparently Mr. Satans old rival in martial arts school, Jaguar, wants to take him on through his bio-fighters. Mr. Satan accepts and Android #18 comes along to make sure he doesnt weasel out of giving her the money he owes.
Of course, it isnt a big surprise that Trunks and Goten hitch a ride in their search for adventure and fun. Crazy half-Saiyajin kids. Naturally its also no big surprise that Trunks, Goten, and Android #18 end up fighting the bio-fighters as well. But Jaguar has a trump card up his sleeve, and it's someone we all know (and dont really love) well.
Just like Movie #10, this one is a little unnecessary. Haha, I almost like to think that they were bored. Sitting around with idle pencils before looking at one another and going, You wanna draw up a DBZ movie? Hey, if it alleviates boredom Anyway, it gets a little out of hand, what with all the weird goo that bursts out from all the crazy biotechnology stuff going on in the ridiculously huge lab everyone finds themselves in, and suddenly Bio-Broly isnt just a clone, hes more like, Boly as Radioactive Swamp Thing. Yeah, its a bit odd.
At least I give them props for having a decent explanation as to how he came back into being. Personally I think he would have been vaporized, but you never know. And of course, it does have the same DBZ animation style (as in it looks like the series and all that jazz), its got the expected humor (Trunks does another mooning job, haha), and the voices are all the same as before, Japanese and English. Yeah, still not the biggest fan of Trunkss Japanese voice, but Goten makes up for it because hes cute. It was also fun to see Android #18 in action aside from the series and you gotta love the arrival of a certain someone else. Awww, he always was my second favorite character. ^_~
The plot isnt all that magical, but you really do have to take into account that this is, after all, DBZ, so its not like you should expect uber-high quality goods. Even though theyre in other movies, this is sort of like Trunks and Gotens time to shine without any help from their fathers, or in Gotens case, brother, and you really could see their fathers in them. Trunks getting ticked at Goten, and Goten doing things to help other people and getting Trunks into bad situations. Props for the fight scene and the fact that it wasnt always one on one like in the series. However, the end really doesnt help because it should have ended 10 minutes ago... (come on, what goo is going to do that? Evil silly putty?)
I think 3 stars is good enough, mostly because of the lame plot and the fact that you knew they were bored when they did this haha.
