Narrator: 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!

A great prequel to the original story of Dragon Ball
27 December 2014 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

My rating: 8.0/10

My opinion on the film:

This is a great prequel to the original story of Dragon Ball. Set mainly on the planet Vegeta, home of the Saiyan race, it focuses on Bardock, Kakarot's (or Goku's) father, who after having visions of his race's extermination at the hands of Frieza decides to challenge him to defend his people when no one else dared to. This film ties really well the plot elements to the beginning of the series and to others from much further on, which made it a really worthy addition to the Dragon Ball universe and a highly engaging movie.
