The Legendary Super Saiyan.. what a great movie!!

Author: lucas-42 from Texas
10 December 2002

This film marks the longest of all the Dragonball Z movies. Over an hour in length and could actually pass as a full feature film. It also has one of the most complex storylines of all the rest of the movies. I won't say much about it, as it's storyline is it's strogest point with fighting coming in a close second. Brolli, who is apparently the REAL Legendary Super Saiyan, is intent on destroying the galaxy and it's up to the Z team to stop him. Well, it's more fun to watch what happens than for me to tell it. Let's just say that Brolli goes through some wicked transformations and does some brutal, brutal damage to the Z team. He's unstoppable through much of the film and when he does say something it's usually pretty wicked or scary. Like... "Monster? No, I'm the devil!"

You'll enjoy this movie so very much it'll make your head spin. It's a great collage of great storytelling and fighting. But once you've seen it a few times it begins to lose it's impact. So make sure that first viewing is a good one! ;)

The only Dragonball Z movie that actually feels like a movie.

Author: Aaron1375
25 July 2010

This Dragonball Z movie actually has a very decent runtime of an hour and nine minutes. That may not seem like a long movie, but compared to other Z movies it is a nice bit of time indeed. Why does the simple increase of length help the movie? Well for one thing they had time to set up the movie while still having a decent fight at the end that is just not another 2 minute fight where someone powers up and decimates their opponent like in the first film with Cooler. This one has a strange mysterious alien getting Vegeta to his planet. He is a Saiyan and he wishes that his prince return to the new Vegeta planet. Well he is not really interested until told of the legendary Super Saiyan warrior creating havoc. The thought of challenging this warrior leads Vegeta onto the ship to the new planet with quite a few Z warriors in tow. A bit more buildup to follow, when I first saw this one I was very worried that there would not be enough time for a decent fight, but thankfully the longer running time meant there could be one giant fight between the Z fighters and Brolly who was the legendary one. Still, while it is good it has its faults as well. For some reason Vegeta is completely out of character here. He shows fear of this warrior and freezes up at the sight of him basically conceding they had no chance against him. This is not something Vegeta has ever done in the regular series. This is the same warrior who usually goes after the much stronger foes still thinking he is going to win. I also did not like the way this Super Saiyan is taken out, but that has more to do with how he is presented later (he would appear in one other film and sort of another one). Overall, though this one is very nice has a great fight and great humor as I loved the scene where Master Roshii challenges Brolly.

Best DBZ movie to date

Author: MovieLord23 from San Antonio
28 April 2015

This is the best DBZ movie made to date. Everything about is on the money from the great villain, the teamwork, the humor, and the action. Everything falls right into place with little flaws for any DBZ fan.

Good: Broly is a great villain. His backstory is great as it mixes some sympathy while building him as a gigantic threat to our main characters. His look is memorable and I really like how despicable and powerful he is. The fight sequences are amazing with them being the most violent of all the movies. You can definitely feel the weight of the fights and the urgency to defeat Broly. The humor is also thankfully funny and placed well throughout while not overstaying its welcome. The length is appropriately long to develop the story and provide ample action. I also like that Vegeta showed some vulnerability.

Bad: The ending is typical DBZ which is a shame because it is so predictable.

Overall, while the ending is predictable, this is a great movie for DBZ fans and for people who want to get into this anime series.

The Best DBZ film??

Author: gigan-92 from United States
19 April 2010

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is the longest DBZ film at just over 70 minutes, but is it also the best?? I'm sure any fan of the series who's watched this movie has asked themselves this question. It is indeed possible. Funimation has, just like all the other (45-51 minute films) films, re-released it beautifully remastered and seen the way it was meant to be. Also it is unedited so you'll see all the details of the Legendary Super Saiyan's background. Perhaps that is why it is pretty damn close to being the best if not so. The story goes pretty deep into the history of these villains, deeper into the barbarity and violent nature of the saiyans themselves. The screenplay makes you wait for the final confrontation but when the action does start it never lets up. Fueling the intense fight is incredibly bad-ass music by Pantera, Doosu, Haji and several other bands. Not to mention an impressive new opening theme by Tendril.

Broly himself, voiced by Vic Mignogna, is a menacing new villain and his transformation scene is fantastically dark. His power is beyond comprehension, most likely far above the level of Perfect Cell, seeing as how he makes light of the entire Z-team not just one-on-one but all at the same time as well. Does he know any limits?? He demonstrates a very different style of fighting that I enjoyed. Also starring is Paragus (Dameon Clarke), Broly's estranged father. By the time the film concludes a diabolical plot is unraveled and a contest of strength turns into a test of who will survive the longest.

One of My Favorites

Author: nightdawndaylandofthedea from United States
4 August 2006

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is not only my favorite Dragon Ball Z movie, but one of my favorite movies of all time. The longest and best DBZ film there is. I can't say how much I love this movie. I like the twist of how Goku isn't he first Super Sayian and is no where near strong enough to defeat Broly. Goku gets one of his biggest beatings ever. I honestly think this shouldn't have been a movie but a saga on the show. I mean the idea of a new Planet Vegeta and Vegeta the Prince is great. Also this is the first Goku villain that's held a grudge against Goku before they meet either on TV or movie. Broly's hated Goku forever. Broly sort of does that large super sayian Trunks does that slows him down but it doesn't slow Broly down. I really do love this one and recommend it 100%

Finally, an enjoyable movie!!!!!!!!

Author: The1Wishmaster1
7 August 2005

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This DBZ movie is the best one out of all, and this movie could be used as the soul to a live action movie!! This movie had the best music and action. Other English DBZ movies are good but are better left Japanese, for example; The History of Trunks. FUNimation outdid themselves this time, as this movie is so enjoyable thats its only drawback is that it ended. I could see this as a Live Action movie to see if more would work. Broly himself is an amazing character, as he does a good job pretending to be good then losing it when Kakarot aka Goku shows up. When he and Goku meet face to face, the movie really takes off. This movie is worth everyones time and makes a great source for entertainment.

Great DBZ movie with a hilarious foundation

Author: smetin from United Kingdom
17 June 2017

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Dragon Ball has always promised us a few things: great fight scenes, a hungry protagonist, evil villains and hilarious sub-plots/filler. This movie, for me, captures basically all of these. The movie starts with Chi-Chi trying to put on a good impression for a school she wants Gohan to get into. Seeing Goku in a suit trying to pass off reading as one of his hobbies is hilarious enough, but seeing Krillin try and do karaoke is the icing on the cake!

When we are finally greeted with the main plot of this movie, we are introduced to Broly and his father. They attempt to convince Vegeta that they are trying to resurrect a new planet Vegeta and want him to be their bountiful master. They take him and a bunch of the other Z-fighters with them. However, they tell him of a legendary super saiyan who needs to be dealt with. Of course, with a movie title like "Broly - the legendary super saiyan" I think its no spoiler that Broly is that person!

When Goku arrives things finally kick off and Broly is unleashed. Broly was born with a power level "over 9000 (or 8000 if you watch the series in Japanese)!!" and he hates Goku...why? Well, in true DBZ style, the reason is hilarious. I won't spoil it, but it will make you chuckle. For those who say the reason is stupid, I urge you to remember what you are watching...

The fight scenes that follow are nothing short of incredible. It is some of the best action I have ever seen in Dragon Ball. Super saiyans are here, there and EVERYWHERE. Ki-blasts are flying, punches are being thrown and environments are being pummelled. It is great stuff and I am sure if you enjoy classic Dragon Ball Z, you will enjoy this. The finale is great because it incorporates a sense of teamwork, despite Vegeta's reservation to act for anyone but himself!

All in all, this is a great Dragon Ball movie. It is my personal favourite and I highly recommend you watch it. If you are new to the world of Dragon Ball, I recommend that you watch the series first, because it will flow better. Enjoy!!

As epic as they got for awhile

Author: Eric Stevenson from United States
8 May 2017

The "Dragonball Z" movies are certainly good, but they ran into this huge problem. They were just too short! These things were as short as 40 minutes sometimes! They are probably the shortest films I have seen in modern times that have been considered feature length, but not this one! Okay, 72 minutes still isn't that long, but this really feels like a movie based on "Dragonball Z". We get introduced to Broly and it's great that we actually get movies that have a recurring villain. We even get a great backstory when we realize he placed literally next to Goku on the day he was born!

I love the allusions to Bardock too. The other main villain is named Paragus. It didn't take too long to figure out that his name was a pun on "Asparagus". I admit that it does seem a stretch to have the villain named "Broly" as a reference to broccoli. They even themselves point this out, so it was fun. The pacing was great and the artwork is as good as anything featured on the show or other movies. I love how they try to make this story personal. Master Roshi shows off his muscles, but still doesn't get to fight. This is why the more recent movies are even better. ***1/2

A fantastic movie that could have been one of the best sagas.

Author: Derek Bellas from United States
13 January 2017

Broly the Legendary Super Saiyan feels less like a movie, and more like a short, but amazing saga from the normal Dragon Ball Z. I felt like the movie had some great characters, and easily one of the greatest villains the series has ever seen. I honestly would have loved to see a saga for Broly himself, as he could have been an even better villain, but the movie still does an excellent job. The voice acting, animation, and action scenes maintain the same high quality level as the show. The only real criticism I think I can give is the ending that seemed a little lack luster for me, but it still wraps up in a decent fashion, and I don't think I would have been able to write a better ending anyway. All in all, any negatives are vastly overshadowed by the rest of the movie, and well worth a watch for any DBZ fan.

Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan Review

Author: Eddie Cantillo from United States
9 September 2016

Dragon Ball Z: Broly-The Legendary Super Saiyan(1993) Starring: Eric Vale, Bin Shimada, Ryō Horikawa, Mayumi Tanakam, Toshio Furukawa, Masako Nozawa, Naoko Watanabe, Hiromi Tsuru, and Kōhei Miyauchi Review You know for a guy who doesn't like Dragon Ball and sees it as a joke thanks to that 2009 live action film I freaking enjoyed myself with this picture. It was tons of fun. In this Dragon Ball film it introduces the super-villain Broly into the franchise. When a spaceship touches down during a picnic, the saiyan Paragus tries to persuade Vegeta to rule the new planet Vegeta. There, Vegeta enlists Paragus's powerful son, Broly, to help him investigate a series of interplanetary attacks. But when Broly comes face to face with Goku, his long buried rage sends shockwaves through the universe. This films was purpose I believe was to go along with the dragonball storyline for fans while being enjoyable for other kids who didn't see the show at the time. It has great animation and great action sequences for a cartoon but to be honest I wasn't heavy on the plot. But it does seem interesting which is a good thing. You know my brother in law would always have a conversation about the superman movie Man of Steel and he would say to me its Dragon Ball because of the fight scenes, And I would say I've always wanted to see that kind of fight and he would say you have basically have always wanted to see a dragonball fight. The film is short of course I think this needed rto be longer if it were to hook me because I did not like that opening with Goku going for a job interview with CHi Chi I think that's how you spell her name. But later it got my curiosity then quickly my attention. Dragon Ball Z: Broly: The Super Saiyan is a fun time, with a some what interesting story, all the characters you know and love and great action sequences I give it a three out of five.
