Storyline

The events of Battle of Gods take place some years after the battle with Majin Buu, which determined the fate of the entire universe. Bills, the God of Destruction, is tasked with maintaining some sort of balance in the universe. After awakening from a long slumber, Bills is visited by Whis and learns that the galactic overlord Frieza has been defeated by a Super Saiyan from the North Quadrant of the universe named Goku, who is also a former student of the North Kai. Ecstatic over the new challenge, Goku ignores King Kai's advice and battles Bills, but he is easily overwhelmed and defeated. Bills leaves, but his eerie remark of "Is there nobody on Earth more worthy to destroy?" lingers on. Now it is up to the heroes to stop the God of Destruction before all is lost.

Exceeded expectations
18 September 2013 | by (Braga, Portugal) – See all my reviews

After having seen so many DBZ movies i wasn't expecting much out of it.

Nevertheless, as an adult hardcore fan of the Anime than rocked my youth, i feel compelled to watch every single one.

And i am glad that i did.

Most of previous movies didn't made a lot of sense to me. My main problem was in the fact that chronologically things didn't had up or where confusing. And this only made think that they were making movies just to profit of it.

Regardless of that, this time, i felt the history well placed and full of meaning. Some light facts were also revealed from older Sayan history.

The plot was indeed interesting and was not only about some lost Sayan coming to earth looking for a fight.

I used to criticize the pace of the history on other movies. They usually go to fast and we are often taken from peace time to world destruction warning in 5 minutes.

This time, even if the length of the movie does not allow a deeper build to the history, the transition a lot more smooth.

I'll give it a 9 because is probably the best movie ever from the DBZ saga. I only disliked the fact that, like almost every sequel from any genre, they felt compelled to give us a glimpse of almost every character in DBZ saga.

Even the most irrelevant living being had to show up. In my opinion this is utter useless and transforms a legit story in some kind of parody.

Anyway, it's definitely a great addition for DBZ fans. If you are too young to have followed DB or have been living in Jupiter's moon for the last 20 years and do not know the saga, this is not for you.

Otherwise enjoy the show!!
