Action-packed, often hilarious fun!
2 July 2002 | by AnthonyRS1983See all my reviews

This was the second Dragon Ball movie released during the series' Japanese TV run. This, like the previous DB movie, is a re-telling of pivotal moments in the Dragon Ball TV series. This time, the story re-tells how Goku met Krillin and how the two boys began their training under the wise "Turtle Hermit", Master Roshi. In the movie, Master Roshi sends Goku and Krillin out to a spooky castle at the Devil's Hand to retrieve a "Sleeping Princess" in return for martial arts training. As they arrive, Goku's friends are captured by the castle's residents, Lucifer, and Igor and both he and Krillin must save Bulma from being used as an involuntary blood donor and prevent Lucifer from blowing up the sun and overrunning the Earth with monsters. This second movie is a bit more serious in tone, but has its share of hilarious moments recreated from the TV series.

GRADE: 3.5 out of 5 stars
