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! ;)

Best DBZ movie!!!

Author: jake-law123 from United States
2 August 2010

Out of all the Dragon Ball Z movies, Bojack, Cooler, Lord Slug eka. This one tops them all. The Legendary Super Saiyan Broly, and epic that will get you pumped up from beginning to end. Broly is without a doubt the most bada** movie villain in DBZ. Three movies to honor his coolness.

A saiyan named Paragus arrives on Earth for Vegeta, and takes him to a planet to be honored the new king of Saiyans. It turns out that his son, named Broly, is the Legendary super saiyan, and becomes an unstoppable monster that, for a variety of the film, kicks the crap out of the Z warriors.

Seriously, most of the film is set around Broly killing everybody, which, although gets a little repetitive, also gets amazingly awesome and intense. Broly is ridiculously monstrous, and is the most bada** DBZ movie villain ever!

Its about a full length-ed movie too, unlike the others, which gives more room for conflicts.

The best of the Broly series by far, even though its just him beating everybody around. What I disliked about it was Vegeta, who is a huge puss throughout the whole film. When Piccolo steps in, its awesome, and things really heat up. The music kicks a** as well, setting the mood for each individual fight scene. The way Broly massacres everybody is insane, crushing their heads and all kinds of crap.

The title says it all, the Legendary Super Saiyan at his most monstrous.

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.

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.

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.

One of the greatest DBZ movies of all (light spoilers)

Author: Maarten Amkreutz from Holland
7 May 2004

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

"Dragonball Z 8: Burning Spirits!! Valiant Fight! Violent Fight! Super-Exciting Fight!", or "Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan" in the English dub, starts off with our heroes relaxing and having fun after peace has been restored on Earth. However, the peace is soon interrupted by the landing of a spaceship. Out comes a huge army led by a mysterious Saiyan named Paragas, who asks Vegeta to come with him and become the king of the new Planet Vegeta and rule the new Saiyan empire. Paragas also tells of the Legendary Super Saiyan, who threatens to destroy the Universe, and that only Vegeta can stop him. After hearing this Vegeta decides to join Paragas to New Vegeta. Trunks, Gohan, Krillin and even Kame-Sennin (who apparantly had a little too much to drink) and Oolong come along for the ride. Meanwhile, Goku is told by Kaio-sama (or King Kai) that the Legendary Super Saiyan has just destroyed the South Galaxy, and now has his sights set on the North Galaxy. Goku is off to find the Legendary Super Saiyan. The trail leads him to New Vegeta...

This movie is the longest of all, and the length isn't just because of long-winded fights that DBZ has become infamous for (at least in my opinion). The movie is one of a kind in terms of storyline. It is the greatest story in all the DBZ movies, with the plot slowly unfolding as the movie progresses. There is a good amount of humor, especially from Kame-Sennin's drunken ramblings and behaviour. Action comes in truckloads in the second half. Brolly, who the Legendary Super Saiyan turns out to be, is one of the deadliest and most memorable villains ever concocted. He has some memorable dialogue, but the greatest thing about him is his insane and totally unpredictable behaviour. Needless to say, Goku and pals have a hard time taking him down, and their efforts are some of the most memorable battles in all of DBZ.

Overall, this movie is not to be missed by all DBZ fans.

Broly is out for revenge...

Author: John Doe from Unknown
20 August 2015

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is the eighth Dragon Ball Movie called in Japan 'Doragon Bōru Z Moetsukiro!! Nessen Ressen Chō-Gekisen' which can mean either ' Dragon Ball Z: Burn Up!! A Close Fight - A Violent Fight - A Super Fierce Fight' or 'Dragon Ball Z: Burn Your Spirits to the Max!! Close Battle, Violent Battle, Super Bloody Battle' but the North American version is called 'Broly The Legendary Super Saiyan'. Anyway, The story is that a man whos name is Paragus has tricked Vegeta and Goku to going to a planet called 'New Vegeta' only it is a trap so Paragus's son Broly can kill Goku.

This is the most violent of the Dragon Ball Z movies, hence the Japanese title. The FUNimation English dub features rock bands such as Slow Roosevelt and Haji's Kitchen. This film has a lot of action, and a good story. Both sets of voice actors do a good job with their characters. This is a worthy DBZ movie for your collection.

I give it a 7/10

this is definatly one of the two best dbz movies tied only with the fusion movie....the only thing that keeps it from being the hands down best is the fact that vegeta is compleatly out of character for much of the movie's important bits....
