Quotes

Angila: [after the air is purified for Lord Slug's troops to breathe freely] They're like children. Give them some air to breathe and they're happy.
Dorodabo: It's still too hot for my taste.
Metamacha: Heh heh heh. It's all that insulation you have. You're as thick as a building. This is nice tropical weather, yes... warm enough to keep my toes from getting numb but still cold enough to kill the Earthlings.
Dorodabo: Yeah, and soon they'll be dropping like flies.
Metamacha: Nothing like a little home improvement.
Dorodabo: Yeah.

Enjoy this more than DBZ Kai
10 March 2013 | by www-afzala1See all my reviews

I actually like this more than the recently Remake of the series (Kai) which released on the channel "Kix", so anyways this film was what I always wanted, my favourite rock band "Disturbed" composed some songs in it and the voice cast from Kai in it (except for Gohan and Bulma I think), don't know why people don't like the English ver, I just think that the rock music fits in with all the action and I couldn't be bothered watching it in Japanese because I couldn't understand it, I can't be bothered reading the subtitles, Goku has a stupid chipmunk voice and the cr*p music. It's just my opinion so if you want to watch it in Japanese thats fine, but the English offers more if your into rock and anime.
