review on Dragonball Evolution

Thanks to Nuffnang, i got to watch this very movie a few days earlier than the actual screening date in Malaysia.

Seriously, ever since the news of the making of this movie was out, the whole world was paying their attention on how the people are going to film it, who are they getting for the cast and etc.

From time to time, whenever there's updated news, i got one bit more disappointed with it, the cast of the movie, the costumes, the leaked pictures and the trailer. It's all pretty disappointing. But i kept all those to me myself and held a little bit of hope that this movie will turn out good, till the minimum that at least it is a movie worth watching itself if i don't relate it to the original Dragonball storyline.

But gosh i was so wrong! I was left speechless a couple of times in the cinema with no idea on how to respond on some scenes which was filmed so badly. Goku went to high school wtf and those high school scenes were totally unnecessary.

This old dude should not be alive from the start of the story and even if they insist in introducing him in the movie i think that it should be in past tense. He was killed by Goku himself when he was still a kid.

Since when Piccolo have such a WOW fighter/helper by his side?

You see, i didn't even start complaining about the cast who acted as the various characters and there is already problem with the much twisted storyline. Seriously speaking, i think that all of the cast were chosen wrongly.


and the so call fighting scenes is quite lame to me and the graphics through out the movie was pretty disappointing as well. For me it is.

Nevermind then, putting aside all the craps mentioned above, i gave up watching it with a mindset that it is related to the original Dragonball story which many of us loved watching when we're kids.

Treating it as a normal movie, the characters role were pretty unclear, the storyline was quite fast where some parts past just like that in a blink and i don't really feel the connection between some scenes and i feel that they filmed it in a way that i'll have a feeling that everything happen too quickly. There are many crappy parts where you'll feel Eh, Why Suddenly Like That, then Eh AGAIN.

Gah, enough of complaints cause i know that many people out there will still opt to watch this movie, to see at least for themselves how is it like.

If you asked me what i like about the movie, i would tell you JAMIE CHUNG. The girl who acted ChiChi/QiQi in the movie. I have many friends who had the same thought as me where they say that the only good thing about the movie is her and HER ALONE.

Of course, some of you guys out there might fancy Piccolo's "girl".

So much of EVOLUTION that is.

My last say? I won't stop you from going to the cinemas for this movie cause if i'm you i will still go to the cinema for this after reading tonnes of negative comments. Just one thing for Malaysians, GO WATCH THIS MOVIE ON A WEDNESDAY!!

Yea if its RM6 then it's worth it.

My Rating for this movie is 5.5/10
*5 for JamieChung and 0.5 for the title Dragonball.Gah

i know from the beginning that this movie is not going to be as good as the one in the comic.

plus, that goku looks like a spoil brat rather than humble, innocent & clueless.

i think i'm going to wait for dvdrip rather than going to cinema. cool review man, honest one!

i plan to watch this movie this evening but after reading your review I .................. (speechless)

Andrew said...

haha.. I like it when you mentioned the suggested cast for the movie!! at least, there are some resemblence of the dragonball anime characters.

Well, i thought the movie was really difficult to produce also la let's put it this way. at least, the producers would feel better!! that's what i think la.

Anyway, your rating is not too bad. for me it's only 3.5/10. Well, maybe that's because i expected too much from it!! haha

Think i wouldn't watch it so that i won't have bad memories with Dragon Ball @.@

They should just change the name of this so called Dragon Ball movie! Just by watching the trailer i felt so so so sad as nth in it is like the manga and anime other than the names of the character =.=''

i can only say "gek hei a"!
