Looks ridiculous...but is ridiculously entertaining!
8 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A while back, someone managed to get their hands on this rare movie, was able to put the film on DVD and upload it to the internet on a bit torrent site. This allowed others to watch & download it and now someone has posted it (in parts) on YouTube. And now that I've seen it I'm going to review it to help shed light on this little known (but not for long!) film.

I'll go ahead and warn you that the movie was in Korean with no subtitles, so there are some things I might have missed. But luckily most DB fans know enough of the story it wasn't such a problem (though the things that were added or changed confused me a little).

The movie follows the first Dragon Ball hunt from the early episodes fairly well, even throwing in minor events most fans don't think about (Goku's first night in the capsule house, Yamcha seeing Bulma in the shower, Goku dressing as a girl and then, uh, revealing himself, etc.) Even the lesser monsters that pestered our heroes are present, represented by people wearing Power Ranger-style costumes (but without the masks).

But there's a drawback: it all looks ridiculous. Not only are the costumes, puppets and SFX less than believable, many the locales and sets aren't very impressive. Heck, it looks like the weapons were got from a toy store (Goku's power pole is clearly made of rubber).

However, it overcomes its homeliness and various technical flaws with spunk and heart. They went the extra mile to capture Akira Toriyama's fantastical, anything goes world from early DB as much as they could and they deserve an A+ for effort. Not only is Goku played by a young boy, but they actually got his hair spiky...with the spikes poking out in the right directions! Oolong, Puar and the Sea Turtle look like their animated counterparts. And some the characters get outfits similar to the anime, even if they do look silly.

But the best part is its actions scenes. Highly entertaining on several levels, whether because of their high energy or because they're fakey, I wasn't bored once watching them. A few even made me laugh! They get better as they go along, going from exaggerated martial arts and people swinging around (wildly) on wires to weapons making things explode where they hit and bad guys blowing up when they die (which may be incorporating a little of DBZ). Not to mention interesting additions like having Yamcha's sword shot lasers, Oolong have some fight in him and wielding nunchucks (ineffectially of course), and giving several characters abilities they didn't have in the anime.

It's far from perfect. But trying to adapt Dragon Ball 100% or as close as they could was bound to end with something quite silly and strange. Better than Dragonball Evolution, but not quite as good as DB: The Magic Begins, this is a fun romp for any DB fan. Just forget about pesky details like logic and physics (and brush up on your Korean) and you'll have a grand old time!
