Although it had a very good start, it quickly became very forgettable and by the end I was bored
25 December 2014 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

My rating: 4.5/10

My opinion on the film:

Expecting from a Dragon Ball Z film something radically different from what has been seen in the series would be silly, but the least one could expect is an entertaining version of more of the same, but this wasn't. Although it had a very good start, it quickly became very forgettable and by the end I was bored. Cooler was basically Frieza but with a different name and I found him a rather dull villain in this forgettable movie. That would change in the direct sequel to this film, which was much more decent.
