Fast paced DBZ adventure.
27 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed this Dragonball Z film, it did not have quite the story or length as the first film featuring Broly, but it makes up for this fact by being fast paced. It is especially fast paced when compared to "The World's Strongest" and "Tree of Might". The English version I got of this one also did a pretty good job of syncing a rather good rock soundtrack to this one. The film has a mysterious alien force has descended upon Earth. Its goal, to turn the Earth into a spaceship, the villain a being known as Lord Slug. Enough with the introductions let the fighting begin. There are your typical fights with characters such as Krillin and Gohan. Piccolo also shows up to lend a hand. Still, most of the others do not do so well and then Goku shows and proceeds to wipe the floor with all the baddies. That is until he faces Lord Slug who gives him one heck of a nice fight. I am guessing this took place right before Goku turned Super Saiyan for the first time in the series as they sort of have a brief transformation of Goku to a state that is not quite Super Saiyan. All in all it is a rather good movie, the action is fast and the rock music soundtrack in the English version is just so perfect for this one. They would try again to do that in the Cooler movie, but it doesn't quite work in that one.
