DragonBall Evolution

I felt something wrong with the movie "Dragonball Evolution" when i saw the first trailer. I told myself to watch it... after i heard more and more feedback from friends, i decide not to waste money and time to see that. For what i saw, that's 100% not DragonBall at all. The character, the world set up, the tone, the design, the fighting style etc. all are way "OFF"!! 100% around me think the same... It doesn't work for Asian audience, maybe it works for US. But after i checked the bad boxoffice, it showed that neither US audience doesn't like it... I don't undertsand why FOX set up the movie like this.

This poster is closer to my expectation on DragonBall

Fans recommended FOX people
if they're still thinking about a sequel to the poor flick they released, pleass ask Funglisoft for consulting, I bet they could radically improve thier understanding of Dragonbal! Or even better: actually should outsource the production of the next DB movie to them! You see what I mean after you watched this clip featuring a fight between Gohan (Goku’s son) and the cyborg siblings:

Yeah, its so bad. I heard Akira Toriyama watched the movie and he's not sure what to say.

I will cry if i were him... just ruin the franchise. The main problem is the world set up direction is totally wrong. It should go to more fantasy. More like starwar, many different kinds of creatures.

Ah. I remember when this came out a few weeks back. Hated the concept, so I didn't watch the movie.

Instead, I watched Monsters vs. Aliens. At least that was able to provide me with a laugh.

I watched that (3D version) too, pretty entertaining!

For a Dragonball fan that would be disappointing but for entertainment wise without thinking how the comic or anime is, it quite entertaining to some.

Stephen Chow was the producer of this movie but the director change most of his ideas and he was rather upset about it for the director does the casting and wanted to have more westerners to take over some roles. Stephen was upset that he never appear in the premiere of the movie at all.

Anyway I did a review on the movie here. You may know why some factor that works and some that does not.

in short you can take the movie as a spoof of dragonball to feel better. LOL
