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!!
