Based on one of the most popular Japanese manga series of all time, Dragonball: Evolution follows a young warrior on an epic adventure to discover his destiny...and save the world from the forces of darkness. For his eighteenth birthday, mild-mannered Goku is given a mystical Dragonball, one of only seven in existence, which combine to grant a perfect wish to whoever possesses them. But an ancient warlord named Piccolo has escaped eternal imprisonment and is on his own quest to gather the Dragonballs. Goku must enlist the help of his friends - and the power of his evolving martial arts skills - to defeat Piccolo before it's too late! Packed with spectacular visual effects, high-flying action, and over an hour of hard-hitting extras, Dragonball: Evolution Z-Edition brings the legend to life like never before!

Still haven't seen this movie (if that's what you want to call it)
FightAs0ne - 12/24/2013, 10:32 AM
LOL! TeamFourStar made this funnier. This movie was so awful. I wonder which is worst, this or The Last Airbender.
ALegendaryPanda - 12/24/2013, 10:34 AM
WORST


MOVIE


EVER!!


Other than Birdemic of course.
ALmazing - 12/24/2013, 10:36 AM
I actually saw this in theaters, matinee mind you, and until this day it's still one of the biggest regrets of my life.
aylander31 - 12/24/2013, 10:37 AM
Eu tenho um roteiro melhor que esse filme mais, mesmo assim ainda preciso dessa historia para dar continuação ao Dragon Ball Z
DudeGuyMan - 12/24/2013, 10:41 AM
The amount of dicks this movie sucks is over 9000.

BatManiac - 12/24/2013, 10:43 AM
Dragonball Evolution is a piece of shit. In fact, that's an understatement. Transformers fans, take note. THIS is what destroying a franchise looks like!
Pending - 12/24/2013, 10:44 AM
It's like they tried to make Goku into Peter Parker, what a [frick]ing waste of a franchise.
BatManiac - 12/24/2013, 10:44 AM
For any Dragonball Z fans who have been lucky enough not to see this movie, do yourself a favor and pretend it doesn't exist.
Gnyah123 - 12/24/2013, 10:46 AM
i wrote an article in the fan-fic. about DBZ check it out on my page

but i will say this again....

FOX STUDIOS!....they have the rights to DBZ...
RIGHT NOW they are sitting on a gold mine here think about it people...if they reboot it and turn it into a franchise they can make MILLIONS!! of dollars...start with dragonball with goku as a kid
dragonball evolution was basically goku as a kid but it sucks redo it over...have picciloo as the bad guy!!

let that be the only 1...i would try to keep it to 10 movies do what they did to harry potter 2 n half - 3 hour movies...7 films...etc...
CherryBomb - 12/24/2013, 10:46 AM
God this movie was awful.
Did they not realise how amazing the DBZ show is?
Isra - 12/24/2013, 10:46 AM
Hilarious... xD
FightAs0ne - 12/24/2013, 10:47 AM
@ALmight I feel your pain. My girlfriend at the time paid of us to watch it, so I didn't pay, but I was forced to sit through it.
ALmazing - 12/24/2013, 10:48 AM
This is probably the closest thing we'll ever get to a Dragon Ball Z movie. All you have to do is imagine that Zod is Vegeta, and Superman is Goku and every time Zod says "Kal" replace it with "Kakarot"



Everyone else notices the similarities between DB and Superman's mythologies?
BatManiac - 12/24/2013, 10:50 AM
Fox should take inspiration from Man Of Steel, since that's the closest thing we have to a live action Dragonball Z movie.

They should do a quadrilogy, making the first movie the Saiyan Saga, the second the Namek/Frieza Saga, the third the Android/Cell Saga and the last the Majin Buu saga.
Humperdink - 12/24/2013, 10:51 AM
The movie was awful, but it's not like the cartoon characters look specifically Japanese or anything.

A lot of anime/cartoon characters in Japan have blonde hair, blue/green eyes and simply a Japanese name.

How can you get mad at a White actor playing your character when you almost always make your characters look like White people?

I mean do we really expect a natural Japanese woman to look like Sailor Moon because her name is Usagi Tsukino?

She's a White chick.
FightAs0ne - 12/24/2013, 10:51 AM
If anyone could direct a DBZ fight, it'd be Zack Synder.
Prime - 12/24/2013, 10:51 AM
God even the clips are hard to watch.

@ ALmight Akira Toriyama is a big Superman fan...that's why Goku has many similarities to Superman.
BatManiac - 12/24/2013, 10:53 AM
Visually, a Dragonball Z movie done right will look beautiful. Fox are indeed sitting on a goldmine. However, a Dragonball Z movie wouldn't be for the people who couldn't stomach the destruction in Man Of Steel. If you thought that was too much, you haven't seen shit yet.
DropAload - 12/24/2013, 10:54 AM
I eat because I'm fat and I'm fat because I eat.
BatManiac - 12/24/2013, 10:58 AM
@Humperdink

I agree. Goku being white is the least of this movies problems! I have never actually thought Saiyans were Japanese anyway. I think they Japanese characters are glaringly obvious, and they are characters like Yamcha, Chi-Chi and Granpda Gohan.
BatManiac - 12/24/2013, 10:58 AM
@greenlanternsF

Is there a reason you are stating the obvious?
ALmazing - 12/24/2013, 10:59 AM
@Batmaniac-as long as he doesn't write the script I agree Snyder is the Guy to make a DBZ movie.

GUNSMITH - 12/24/2013, 11:07 AM
WORST MOVIE EVER..THE TURD OF ALL ADAPTATIONS THE ONLY REDEEMING QUALITY WAS CHI CHI WAS HOT..BUT EVERYTHING ELSE TOTALLY AN UNFORGIVINGLY SUCKED AZZ...SUCKING SO BAD IT LEFT A BLACK HOLE OF BULL $#!@ IN ITS WAKE.
Prime - 12/24/2013, 11:07 AM
If we can get someone good to write the screenplay, hen Zack Snyder can direct this movie.
GUNSMITH - 12/24/2013, 11:08 AM
SNYDER WOULD HONOR SOURCE MATERIAL AN MAKE A PROPER DBZ MOVIE....HECK AMETURE ONLINE ON YOUTUBE MOVIES HONORED IT BETTER THAN THIS STEAMING POOP OF A FILM
BatManiac - 12/24/2013, 11:08 AM
@ALmight

For the most part, Dragonball Z will benefit from being a great visual experience, and if done right, could win awards for its visuals, but a faithful Dragonball Z movie doesn't need and likely wouldn't have an excellent script. A good script will simply do.

A Dragonball Z done justice movie would please the fans like myself, but I have no doubt in my mind it would be panned by the critics. Its just the sort of thing the pretentious critics will never get down with.
Prime - 12/24/2013, 11:12 AM
Critics would hate this movie.
Prime - 12/24/2013, 11:12 AM
Well they do, but I meant one done by Zack Snyder.
BatManiac - 12/24/2013, 11:14 AM
The thing is, at least half the movie needs to be action, action, action to do a Dragonball Z movie justice. The fact they'd have t shorten the fights in the first place is already a disservice, but you can make a Dragonball Z movie without concentrating on the action a lot.

For example, the first fight in the movie (Raditz vs Goku & Piccolo) has to be at least as long as the final fight in Man Of Steel between Zod and Superman.
Inhuman - 12/24/2013, 11:16 AM
There are no words to describe how let down I was when I saw this movie
Inhuman - 12/24/2013, 11:17 AM
@BlackJack10

Id rather watch Batman and Robin lol
BatManiac - 12/24/2013, 11:19 AM
@BlackJack10

I don't even have to think twice about that one.

Batman & Robin > Dragonball: Evolution.
DurtyTalynt - 12/24/2013, 11:19 AM
Laughed so f ing hard watching this movie. Its clear everyone involved with the movie hates dragonball. Thats the only excuse i can come up with for this disaster. Oh and its made by Fox We Dont Give a Damn We're Racist Studios.
GUNSMITH - 12/24/2013, 11:20 AM
YOU THINK THE WACHOWSKI BROTHERS WOULD GET IT RIGHT? THEYRE UBER ANIME FREAKS AN GAMERS
Prime - 12/24/2013, 11:20 AM
I don't think people are ready for a full on Dragonball Z movie. MOS proved that...oh well...
space - 12/24/2013, 11:24 AM
Hilarious!

Prime - 12/24/2013, 11:34 AM
...Del Toro?
BatManiac - 12/24/2013, 11:34 AM
@Prime

I think you are right. If a full on Superman movie is too much for some of these people, they wouldn't be able to stomach a full on Dragonball Z movie.

I could just imagine the stupid complaints coming from people. Shit like "There is too much action" or "There is to much destruction". When it comes to a Dragonball Z movie, they are simply not valid complaints.
Thevenominside - 12/24/2013, 11:35 AM
Its over 9,000? This was freaking hilarious.
