This was the second Dragon Ball movie released during the series' Japanese
TV run. This, like the previous DB movie, is a re-telling of pivotal
in the Dragon Ball TV series. This time, the story re-tells how Goku met
Krillin and how the two boys began their training under the wise "Turtle
Hermit", Master Roshi. In the movie, Master Roshi sends Goku and Krillin
to a spooky castle at the Devil's Hand to retrieve a "Sleeping Princess"
return for martial arts training. As they arrive, Goku's friends are
captured by the castle's residents, Lucifer, and Igor and both he and
Krillin must save Bulma from being used as an involuntary blood donor and
prevent Lucifer from blowing up the sun and overrunning the Earth with
monsters. This second movie is a bit more serious in tone, but has its
of hilarious moments recreated from the TV series.
GRADE: 3.5 out of 5 stars
In order for Goku to become an apprentice of Master Roshi/Kame Sennin,
he and a bald boy named Kuririn must fulfill an assignment. Master
Roshi wants a woman around his home for cooking and cleaning. The
assignment is to retrieve the slumbering princess from the lair of
Lucifer. Once Goku and Kuririn bring back that princess, then they will
become the students of Master Roshi himself.
But both Goku and Kuririn will learn that Lucifer's Lair is a ghoulish and hellish place to visit. As it's fully populated with goblins and night dwelling beasts. With the help of old friends and personal strength, Goku will have a winning chance in retrieving this princess.
Like the previous movie, this is an alternate retelling of how Goku first met Kuririn, how he became Roshi's student, as well as how they first met Lunch(the split personality woman).
The story to this one is enjoyable with all the recognizable and made for the movie characters. Only down side is it's less than an hour. But if you are a fan of the Dragonball series, then you wouldn't mind that at all.
