I can only really say that I never found a better use for an impersination of Darth Vader shouting 'NOOOOO!'

This may go well with people who dont know anything/much about the Dragonball series, but I persoanlly see it being a disaster in the eyes of most anime fans.

very fair point ^.^ I LOVE dragon ball (all of it....even *hangs head* the GT series, but this film seems like a bad idea...its only really piccolo who looks anything like himself.

Its either going to just be bad or it'll be surprisingly good, OR it'll be in that small minority of films that are so bad they're good. I'm personally of the opinion that even if the movie is a complete and utter flop it'll boost its overall income back with people wanting to see it because it is such a flop. Technically its a win-win situation depending on whether their box office figures can break even over the $100,000,000 budget, then they should be okay. Besides, in these hard up times people are spending money on the cinema as a way of escape than holidays at the moment, the film entertainment industry is actual increasing its money through the recession where many other industries are struggling (*is a film student*). So yeah, we shall see what happens I guess

I personally am going to see it just because I want to see what its like, I'm kinda expecting it to be bad, so i won't be disappointed if it is, and I'll be pleasently surprised if it isn't. Besides, Chow Yun-Fayt is awesome.

Needs moar Vegeta

I can't really tell if it's going to be a good movie or not because I keep thinking of it in terms of the really DragonBall series. I guess if you see it as a stand alone movie it seems like quite a neat idea?

Bulma needs better hair they made this mistake in the DeathNote movie when they made Misa dark haired ¬_¬

The fact that Bulna seems to have been turned into a gun-wielding action babe alone worries me (The rest of it worries me, but this stands out)

I can easily see them making Goku and Bulma romantically involved in this, or at least have some sort of sexual tension between them.

The 'Kamehameha' moment seems a little hit and miss to me.
I like it in the trailer because it sounds similar to how Goku say's it when he uses the Kamehameha.
But I dont like it because it sounds like how Goku say's it, as an adult.

tbh i think itll be a flop but ok to watch but seing it a fans point of view, ill probably do what i did while watching resident evil movies(stands up) " WTF, THAT WASNT MENT TO BE THERE, WHY ARE THEY SO COCKY, THAT MONSTER ISNT SUPPOSED TO BE IN IT TILL 2" lol yea i actually did

the thing thats dissapointed me is the fact they have the technology to make a super amazing dbz movie i mean take superman returns for example, while he flies the effects of that were perfect for dbz, all the latest cg and movie thing they could have easily made an amazing lookin kamehamehaa AHH IM SO DISSAPOINTED ALREADY I MEAN in the trailer goku doees the kamehameha with one HAND IS HE A SPAZ , HES NOT SUPER SAIYAN 2 TEEN GOHAN GRRRRRRRR, if master roshi dont have a huge shell on his back ill be dissapointed

I am a fan of the DBZ series I have to admit, used to love it as a kid before I even knew what anime or the likes was, used to watch it in the half hour before dad came home from work in the evenings. ^^

I think its a little unfair though to complain about details about things not being true to the series. Yeah, its *very* disappointing for the fans of the series - I mean take the backlash the forth Harry Potter film had when it completely reduced the World Quidditch match thing. But the reason they did that was for time value, and in all essence it technically wasn't needed for the plot. Similar with the Veela(?) thing, wasn't technically needed for the main point of the plot at all.

So yeah, they have to even up the film to make it more suitable for both fans and non-fans alike. So sorry Ryaoki, I think catering to the non-fans they decided that perhaps Roshi might not have a shell on his back (can you imagine the reaction from those who haven't seen DB the series before? - "Wtf? Why's he got a shell on his back? Is he gonna do anything with it?" And details like the one hand Kamehamaha or super saiyans etc.etc. I guess must either be taken out for time value, or simply because details like that aren't needed for a film to entertain the masses - Part of the reason I'm assuming they made Bulma into a bit of an action babe, so guys who don't know the Dragonball series, see the poster/trailer/whatever and go 'Wow hot gun-toting chick, I'm going to see that!'

So yeah, keep it all in mind, its not great for us fans of the series, but you should try and understand it from the filmmakers point of view I gues

I saw the trailer today and all I could say was "oh dear..."

I think they've failed by taking the story and trying to modernize it, bringing it into the present era. At least that's what it seemed like to me.

None of the characters shown have any traits that they did in the anime or manga. They aren't even recognisable as those characters.It just gives off a totally different vibe to me, it doesn't feel like Dragonball, it feels like they've tried to 'hip' it up LOL. I think they've done a poor job with this to be honest.

But then I've been spoilt rotten with Zack Snyder's Watchmen film clips so far, so I guess my expectations are pretty high for comic book films now.

I do remember one of the many watchmen film attempts had an idea to bring the story into the 21st century in the script, which would have completely killed the story. I think that's what happened with DB.

Ho hum...

It's dead and has ruined my love for Dragonball ¬_¬

I've been watching this for ages (as most Dragonball fans would have done) and I have several problems.

Kinto'un = A CAR!? WHAT!?

Piccolo = YELLOW/PALE WHITE!? o_O It's a shame as I think James Marsters actually could have been a good Piccolo!

Goku = Teen surfer-dude in high-school...

That last one can kinda end it LOL I've seen the trailers, even the leaked one and it looks terrible.

But will I still be watching it? Of course...just, not in the cinema LOL

I long grew out of dragonball. I used to watch it when I was very little so I'm not too sure my opinion counts. There's a part of me that wants to watch it out of curiosity. It looks awful but that's no surprise, I wouldn't pay to watch it though, I'll wait till it's on the small screen!

actually he becomes more green as the show goes on, alot of people are expecting alot with dragon ball me being one but we have to remember this isnt Z so no flying/mega boom attacks there are so many things wrong but i for one will give it a chance its the least we can do for DB since its pretty much one of the shows that paved the way for international anime around the world ^.^

I will watch it if only to laugh at it.

They seem to have just taken the basic idea, and then twisted it. I swear, if that trailer hadn't had the word Dragonball, or any of the character names, I wouldn't have even known it was based on the same thing.

Goku's hair looks like Gareth Gates.

12 Dec 2008 - 12:598635
haha gareth gates ^.^ thats true

Apart from the Kamehameha...I must admit, when I heard that starting, a fanboy inside me became happy...until he unleashed it with one hand (or is that a cut to another scene? I sure hope so...)

But I've gotta agree with Tab...it's ludicrous and only LOOSELY even Dragonball anymore.

It looks awful, innaccurate, and has far too much Hollywood value for it to be enjoyable now.

They didn't make Sweeney Todd a metrosexual hairdresser. Nor did they give Huo Yuanjia guns and make him a bloodythirsty idiot. Why do they have to twist Goku and the other characters so far out of their times and original appearances?

Some film adaptations work by adjusting details slightly. For example, Romeo and Juliet with guns worked, because it retained the essence - Shakespeare's dialogue - in a more modern setting.

This film isn't going to work in the least.

They cut Krillin.

Piccolos a white guy.

One handed Kamehameha.

Didnt even try to get the hairstyles.
