Storyline

The evil Dr. Kochin uses the dragon balls to resurrect his mentor, Dr. Wheelo, in an effort to take over the world. Dr. Wheelo, his body having been destroyed by the avalanche that killed him fifty years before, desires the body of the strongest fighter in the world as his new vessel. Believing Roshi to be the world's strongest warrior, Dr. Kochin abducts Bulma and forces Roshi to surrender himself to save her. When Goku hears of their abduction, he goes to their rescue.

Quotes

Goku (AB Groupe dub): A bunch of monsters kidnapped The Old One and Bulma just like that?
Oolong (AB Groupe dub): In-in a way...
Goku (AB Groupe dub): Hm. OK, don't worry. The Old One can defend himself, don't worry, he was martial arts champion of the world many times over. Got any idea where they were taken?
Oolong (AB Groupe dub): Well, maybe I sorta got a hunch but you gotta promise you won't be angry.

A good flick.
24 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This DBZ movie is very good. It is the only movie so far that I have seen where you get to see Master Roshi fight. Sure the fight doesn't last long, but he does good for a bit. This movie is about a crazy doctor who is now a brain in a jar. This guy wants the strongest person in the world so he can have his body. He hasn't been around lately so he mistakes Master Roshi for the strongest, but Bulma tells him that Goku is. Goku is on his way to rescue them and a bunch of cool fighting begins. Gohan, Krillin, and Picallo also are on hand for the fight.
