This film is a lesson. A lesson in how to ruin an amazing franchise. I'd like to say one thing, all those people who say it's okay if you ignore the Dragonball connection are just wrong, even ignoring it the film is terrible. With Bad acting throughou and pathetic fight scenes. The main character, Son Goku, is a rather stupid interpretation of legendary anime and manga icon, the actor who plays him ( I can't remember his name) is just bland, his acting varies from boring to watch, to incredibly boring to watch. The plot is a silly interpretation of a rather solid story arc from Dragonball , and the villain, Picollo, is just hillarious to look at (I couldn't take him serously) So I end this review with a lesson, if this is what happens when the western world interprets stories from the eastern world, then don't bother, it'll just be Godzilla (1998) all over again.
