Trivia

Quotes

[first lines]
Staff A: Commander Sorbet?
Sorbet: What now?
Staff A: It's planet 448, sir. The native uprising has gotten worse, we can't keep them down much longer.
Sorbet: Fine. Then send more soldiers.
Staff A: That's the trouble, sir. With all the fighting on other worlds, we barely have any to spare.
Sorbet: What? Ugh... Damn it. Disengaged, disengaged.

The Dragon Ball film experience I've always wanted.
29 June 2015 | by tomselectricsSee all my reviews

This movie is fantastic. It does almost everything right and it's one of the most entertaining animated films I've ever seen.

Resurrection 'F' is action packed and freaking' hilarious. It perfects the mix of action and humour and creates one heck of a ride. The weaker characters finally get their moments in the spotlight and it is so good to see characters such as Roshi and Tien throw down.

Goku and Vegeta are the stars here and this movie includes some of the best interactions between the two characters, it's great to watch. Frieza is back and he's just as awesome as you remember him. There's a reason why this guy is the best Dragon Ball villain and one of the most iconic villains of all time and you see that reason in this film.

The animation is, hands down, the best the series has ever looked. An excellent mix of hand drawn and digital animation. Incredible use of cinematography that makes the viewer feel as if they are within the fights. It has an awesome soundtrack and includes a head- banging insert song that'll be stuck in your head for weeks.

Watch this movie. Dragon Ball fan or not, you need to see this. It's awesome.
