Did You Know?

Trivia

In the danish and french dub version of the movie, Turles is stated to be Goku's brother. This was likely a way of explaining their physical similarities for that version. See more »

Goofs

Turles apparently knows the Power Ball technique, which is only supposed to be known by Saiyan elites - not low-class Saiyans like Turles. See more »

Spectacular!
17 January 2001 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

This is a great Dragon Ball Z movie. It's also a pretty good movie compared to many others. The dialogue is not as cheesy as it can be on the series and voices are pretty good. The action scenes and fights are the best part of all. The story is fairly strong and exciting. Involves a lot of the favorite characters to a good degree.

This is a definite must see.
