Dragonball Clip

DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION with Justin Chatwin as GokuA new Dragonball Evolution TV spot has premiered in Japan, it should air in the USA soon, we may still take a look to the Japanese TV clip the full new trailer below:

The special effects of this clip are as colorful and cheap-candy-like as in Smallville. Did they hire the same guys for the job?

Enough irony: the dragon does look awesome and Fox is trying to cope for its previous mistakes, a stark example is Piccolo going green. But overall, I can but have mixed feeling, and still have to strive to call this film a Dragonball movie...

Why is Goku the only one not played by an asian?
I get Bulma and Piccolo not being asians...but why isnt Goku asian?

Well, I saw the movie too while I was in a short trip in Japan. And I disagree with you.

Ok it was somewhat entertaining: I'd say entertaining like the power rangers can be for 8-years-old kids.

I dislike the way they cut the plot: it looks like a tv show with breaks ready made for inserting TV ads... As a result it hardly feels like a theatrical movie...

Too many details have been changed compared to the original manga, so Dragonball Evolution is as close to the original manga as a turd is to the Mona Lisa...

Spoiler here:
The film implies that goku was sent by piccolo, that the dragon balls were made by humans... Such changes are blasphemous!
I may have chuckled when Chichi and Goku are flirting, but overall the movie SUCKS VERY HARD!
Don't expect that much fight: the final fight between Goku and Piccolo is short and unimpressive.

Don't pay for it guys! That's such a let down! it is so disappointing!

It's a shiny mix of Power Rangers and Dragon Ball... I rate this movie 3/10... :( Give me back the 86 minutes I wasted on this lame adaptation! Should have been busy with my Japanese cutie instead of watching this shit!
