''Let him clean up his own mess, You have a lot to learn brother''.
- Cooler

This Movie like a lot of the other dbz films is a very simple yet a fun typical
45 minute film to watch. As the name suggest Cooler's Revenge is about Goku facing off against 1 of the major antagonist Frieza - To be precise his older brother Cooler who wants to take his vengeance out on goku for what happen to frieza.

The prologue starts of during the demise of goku's former Saiyan home world planet Vegeta's being destroyed by frieza, Overlooking the destruction in his spaceship along with his crew read more

I wanted to avoid writing reviews of anything I considered a personal favorite, anything I would of rated a 10, or anything I especially hated to avoid being biased. I'm going to go against that rule for this movie though, because it's an absolute must see for any DBZ fan.

Dragonball Z is truly an amazing anime series. It survived for an unreal amount of time recycling the same stories over and over. It can never be accused of innovation, which brings us to the fifth movie in the copy and paste line up, Cooler's Revenge. This is not a movie that I could recommend to someone new to the franchise at all. This is definitely either for fans or those who are familiar with the main story. Before coming into this series, it would be a great idea to see the series up until the Frieza Saga for some type of clue; but the read more
