I'm Impressed!
20 August 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

After watching Dead Zone and claiming that it was the only thing I loved about DBZ, I'd say it's that this next film which came out straight after it is good.

I think the voices are contrasted well between conversations, fight scenes and introduction.

I think the music is generally great and I like the snowy atmosphere. Definitely different to other DBZ settings, mainly contrasting Dead Zone.

The only problem I really had was this film did drag on at a few points which kept me waiting for something. In my opinion, its definitely not as amazing as Dead Zone.

I still like it and it has intrigued me to watch the other 13 or so films they have made in the on-going series! 8/10
