Frieza's brother revealed to be one cool customer.
27 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

This film features the first of two appearances of Cooler, the older brother of Frieza. A creature that is going to go after the one who killed his brother though he does not really care all that much for his younger sibling. This one like the previous Z movie "Lord Slug" tried to sync a rocking soundtrack to the movie. However, this one had mixed results at best as they just did not do the job of the previous film. Also annoying on the American voice track is the strange Cooler henchman who for some reason is dubbed as having a French accent. You listen to the Japanese track and he is not voiced any differently than any other character and while this may make him a bit more unique in the dubbers minds to me it makes him very annoying. The story has the gang all camping and of course their camping trip is interrupted by the arrival of Cooler and his men. Some good fights here and there, but also the need for more development a lot of these Z movies need. The final fight is a bit okay, and a bit to over quickly. Though you do get to see a fifth stage of the Frieza clan, though to me it just looked a lot like stage three to me. Once again though Vegeta is sadly absent from the movie, and considering how popular he is it is sad that he was in so few of the movies.
