There have been many dragonball features, some go from very bad to very good. this one falls on the latter as probably one of, if not the best one ever. WHat makes this feature so great is it is just so enjoyable to watch. you can see this many times and it will not get old. Broly is a great villain. He is the very definition of what a super sayin should be. powerful, destructive and completely psychotic. Broly stops at nothing to defeat Goku and his friends. The story line is also very enjoyable overall this read more

Welcome to the complete and utter letdown that is Broly. For a non-canonical character, Broly receives a massive amount of praise. People often cite this movie to be the best DBZ film. Not only is Broly not the best DBZ film, Broly is just plain bad.

I don't have nostalgia for DBZ. If you do feel free to put your hands over your ears and exit the review. I first watched DBZ (as well as the original Dragon Ball) in 2015. I loved Dragon Ball and DBZ was great as well, albeit with a lot of faults. So I do enjoy the series a lot.

I was waiting too long to see Broly in action, after all, he is one of the main reasons that made me rewatch the entire DB series this year.

The movie didn't disappoint. Broly is a fearless monster with no fellings at all, the true essence of any saiya-jin warrior. As the story goes, Goku gets to fight against him and, in my opinion, this was one of his toughest battles, since Broly had unlimited power, besides being a lot stronger.

As in many other battles, Goku doesn't give up, even after taking serious damage. He brings hope to everyone when everything seems lost and keeps fighting, read more

While definately not the best movie ever, and probably not even the best Dragon Ball Z movie, movie number eight stands up very well as an enjoyable action movie.
The story, such as it is, ostensibly serves simply to deliver action but what story is there works fine. The movie doesn't drag in any spots too heavily which helps, especially given the movie's short run time. There are some slightly nonsensical bits that you'll just have to suspend your disbelief a little more than usual for. Also, the comedy in the movie is not always funny and doesn't quite add much to the movie. In short, read more
