i have written this review after watching the movie unlike the many reviews written by wannabe anime fans who even never watched it.Sadly this is a more common thing happening between weebs.
I am not going to explain the story because the internet is flooded with it.
What i do can say is that the story used for the movie is built up better than most popular series movies in the last 3-4 years.To be honest i did not expect that because most of the past movies are not that big story based in the DB universe.
however i do feel that they could've exploit some topics broader.
and gentlemen you need to see this movie just for the artwork/animation alone.
While every other series are fully going for the digital animation/modern look,the director of the DB Broly movie MADE a STATEMENT by making the movie in Old School manga/anime colours and pencil strokes.They do have some use in the movie of modern techniques but it does the movie justice.
I watch anime for over 25+years and my god this movie gave me back those Old School nostalgia.
no other series can top this up for the moment.
But i must confess i did not like some of the character designs because it did not match the Old School touch.
soundtrack and movie effects are on point and were blasted off on the right moment.
I felt that some characters did not match the whole concept of the movie.Probably they did this to make the movie more open for NON-DB viewers.
The new Broly design is superb!It truly screams the savage saiyan look.The old broly personage of the previous movies is blown by bits from the new broly.
To bad some characters had not to much screentime.
How can you not enjoy this movie?This movie is packed with action.
There is nothing wrong watching some old school typical DB fighting.
This movie will dominate box offices.
The amount of effort and work into it is insane,if you can not acknowledge that then i suggest you stop watching J-animation in it's whole.
This movie made a statement by using the Old School look and re-vamping 2 popular characters and that takes balls to do it since we live in an era flooded with oversensitive fanservice fans and keyboardgangsters that like to bash because they cannot accept change or cannot accept good work.
I salute the whole crew who made this movie!It has been a while that i really enjoyed a good J-animation movie since kimi no wa and wolf children
