The art is good. It's obvious you're watching Toriyama-style. DBZ is a big show so it's not as if they can afford to concentrate their budget on one movie.
The soundtrack is fair. The English and Japanese audio tracks fit depending on your tastes/mood. With the English dub, you get bgm that's loud and frequent. Sometimes listening to the rock after a while made me feel irritated but it fits fine.
As for the Japanese track, I prefer Goku's dub voice since I've heard it a lot longer having the dub to watch when growing up. The original BGM is much quieter than the rock used for the English track which let me focus on the animation a lot more. When anyone was yelling, I liked having the English rock going on compared to the less energetic original bgm where sometimes there'd be none playing.
After about a third into the movie, we learn more details about the legendary Super Saiyan and how the people affected by it feel. It was here I was let down. The characters didn't seem as impressive anymore. I didn't enjoy this as a movie anymore but down to the level of a filler.
I'm not unattracted to the sequel or the rest of the movies I have yet to watch. It'd be great if the sequel turns out to be a lot better than this one though it won't be the next DBZ movie I check out next time. It'll have to wait until I see another first. read more
