A non-official parody of the popular anime Dragon Ball Z, where all the characters are made simply to be funny. Every character has at least one trait making all of them terrible friends. That's all there is to it.
A prequel to the original Dragonball series, this TV movie tells the story of Son Goku's father Bardock and his futile attempt to stop Freeza from destroying his planet Vegeta. It also shows how little Kakarotto (Son Goku) ends up on earth! Written by
This is Akira Toriyama's favorite Dragon Ball Z movie. See more »
The dubbed version seems to imply the baby Goku inherited Bardock's ability to see into the future as a child. This makes no sense; Goku was born BEFORE Bardock was inflicted with this curse (note that this error only exists in the dub, and not the original Japanese.) See more »
Planet Vegeta. Many years ago, a small child was born. Uninherited and unattended by it's father and mother, the baby cried out, making it's only plea to the universe. The Saiyans were people of war, and like all Saiyan babies, the child was destined to fight!

Normally, Dragonball Z movies have weak plots, horrible dubbing, censorship up the wazoo, and pretty useless fighting. However, this one is an excellent example of what the movies SHOULD have been like.
Bardock is a saiyan who, like everyone else on his home planet Vegeta, works for Freeza. One day, his team of low-level soldiers take out a planet that was giving even Freeza's highest elite teams a run for their money. However, the last survivor curses Bardock by giving him the power to see the future.
Bardock begins to dream about Goku's future back on Vegeta, while the rest of his team is sent to another planet on Freeza's orders. Bardock dreams that Goku will become a great warrior, but thinks nothing of it. However, as the plot unfolds, and he learns what Freeza is planning, he realizes that Goku will be the only hope for the universe someday.
The stuff I can't give away is what really makes the plot so wonderful. There are only a few fights, but that's to be expected; the plot is the main focus here. However, two fights do stand out: a little Vegeta destroys a bunch of Saibamen, and Bardock's final confrontation with Freeza. Overall, I recommend that any moderate to hardcore DBZ fan get this movie sometime. Trust me, you won't regret it.
