Dorodabo: [after Piccolo beats Wings] Hold on, hold on! Please, please don't kill me! You're strong, but you can't beat Lord Slug. So why not join him while you can.
[Piccolo brings his hand close to Wings' reaching hand]
Dorodabo: Huh... excellent. I see you want to live. You won't be sorry. It's the smart thing to do.
[Piccolo brings his hand in front of Wings and blasts him in the face, killing him]

The subtitled version is the best
22 January 2002 | by (california) – See all my reviews

I have watched the kiddy American version of Dbz and I have to say that the original Japanese versions are much better (of course the Japanese created Dbz).

Not only that, the one American writer should have pointed out that the dubbed version of Dbz and their movies cut out several scenes, and insert their own corny and kiddy dialouge instead of the original Japanese language.

Goku, Kuririn , Mr. Piccolo are at the super best when you watch them subtitled.

The movie rocks.

Oh yeah, I have all dbz from 1-13 all uncut. Eat your heart out all English dbz fans, because Cartoon Network has still showed the same mediocre English for 5 years now.
