Goku and Krillin want to be trained in the martial arts by the great Master Roshi. The only way he will agree to train them is if they go to Devil's Castle to find the Sleeping Princess, who is being held prisoner by Count Lucifer, and bring her back to his island.
Goku Jr. is the great-great-grandson of the legendary warrior Goku, but unlike his predecessor he's not a brave fighter. He's constantly picked on by school bullies--his grandmother Pan sees this and is worried, but even though Goku Jr. is not a strong and powerful saiyan, he has a kind heart, and Pan loves him. When Pan gets sick, Goku Jr. realizes that he must do something if he doesn't want to lose her. Then he remembers about the legends of the Dragon Balls. It was told that they grant a wish to the bearer, and Goku Jr. needs a magical wish more than ever, so he sets out to find the dragon ball that his grandmother told him about. Written by
The truck driver's truck advertises a type of burger called "Moo Macs", which is an obvious parody of the Big Mac from McDonalds. Additionally, the truck has a logo very similar to the McDonald's Golden Arch. Ironically, McDonalds is now one of the sponsors for Dragon Ball Kai. See more »
I'm going to be upfront, I thought Dragon Ball GT was alright despite the torrent of abuse it got from hardcore fans. I get Trunks was 'goofy' and that it wasn't as dark as the previous instalments, I do. However, it still had a fun storyline and ki-blasts here, there and everywhere.
A Heroes Legacy picks up a long time after GT when all the main characters die of natural causes. Goku's great great grandson, Goku Jr., is the main protagonist and bears an uncanny resemblance to Goku in the original Dragon Ball. However, he is quite shy and lacks the courage Goku had. Maybe the family got soft with such a prolonged episode of peace...it was interesting to see a Saiyan who was so un- Saiyanlike!
The storyline of this movie is quite similar to the original series...find the Dragon Balls. The reason for doing so is so that Goku Jr. can wish to save his grandmother, who just so happens to be the only surviving Z-fighter, Pam! Of course, this is Dragon Ball, so getting the balls themselves won't be a simple task. Along the way, Goku Jr. faces new enemies and must overcome his shyness. This is where I felt the movie fell a bit short. The enemies were not very memorable and we do not get to see some 'proper' fights until very late on in the movie. When the fights do eventually happen, they are somewhat lacklustre compared to what we were used to in the original series.
The story ends on a kind nod to the original series. I won't spoil this for you, but it is an ending that I felt did it justice. If you found GT a blemish on Dragon Ball, I would still recommend you watch this movie. It was a slower story sure, but it was still Dragon Ball.
