I kind of like it. I 'm not sure how it will be in live action though.
If there is one property that does not need a live-action movie, it's DBZ.
The movie will have to be 20 hours long just to get all those pointlessly drawn-out fights in.
goku is a high school student?
piccolo is like a deranged mixture of emporer pilaf and raditz?
this isn't cool at all.
Well that's, uh, bizzare. Interesting way to do it, I'll watch it for sure. I cannot ever imagine it being even vaguely good, just lots of action then terrible dialogue that leads to unintentional hilarity.
And if this is what they're doing with films these days, roll on Sailor Moon...
Really he sounds more like the original Piccolo from DB instead of the Piccolo we see in DBZ. There's a lot of changes, but it could be ok, especially if they keep it more on the DB level than DBZ.
Thats alot to put in a DBZ movie.With them trying to put the hunt for all 7 Balls and the story of the char. into a 2 hour movie.I just don't see it working.
i'm talking about how he reveals to goku that he's a saiyan and supposed to be destroying the earth part. it all just sounds bad to me. terrible and bad. it makes me want to hurt someone. it makes the unofficial chinese movie look good. ugh.
So its a twisted Dragonball movie but they are deciding to add the Z to it to make it more recognizable or something? Because that isn't DBZ. It sounds more like DB, only if it was really really bad.
That sounds like one terrible movie. It should make a great comedy though.
Bowls of bullshit. If ever there was an anime you shouldn't make a live action movie from, this is it! That's not to say I never enjoyed the show, however...
Yeah, the cast and the fact that Piccolo is evil reminds me more of DB than DBZ, which is odd, but kind of interesting. I didn't think they would do anything that would exclude Vegeta's character, but maybe this movie is just the first installment.
There already is a Live Action Sailor Moon series in japan, and from my understanding it isn't all that bad. Though we're getting live action Ghost in the Shell and Evangelion so it sorta evens out...
I noticed that too, I think the 'Z' is more for name recognition then anything else.
If it's done like Dragon Ball was, it should be a great comedy 'cause the original story was half comedy/half action. There's no way this can be done with DBZ's over the top, super-seriousness as it's just too silly of a concept to ever be that.
Seeing as this movie is introducing these characters, making it an origin story based on the original DB does make the most sense.
The Live Action Sailor moon is over. It was done in a power ranger type fashion. There is currently a Live action tv series of cutey honey, there was also a live action movie.
I think I just wandered into Silent Hill and my Nightmare became a reality.... I don't like this ideal at all.
Pretty Gaurdian Sailor Moon sucks, mostly because it reminds me of those Power Ranger days (shudders), which are embarsssing to look back on everytime I spot it on Toon Disney......
This is absolute shit right here. This could very well be worse than the live-action He-Man movie. *Shudders in thought of that HORRID movie*
"[GOHAN] Goku's kindly, wise grandfather"
Goku's son Gohan is named after his gramdpa Gohan. The elder Son Gohan is mostly seen in flashbacks and for a couple episodes in DB when he uses his 1 day pass from the Spirit World, but rarely referenced in DBZ. He was also Roshi's #1 pupil before Goku and Krillin came for training.
Why are they even calling that Dragonball? Just because they are using the characters names. pssch. At least Vegeta isn't in it, I hate to see them ruin him too.
