I had hoped that this movie would have some ties to it’s original story but this was not the case at all, instead we get a short side story that takes place two years after the battle with Majin Boo and before the DragonBall Z Series have ended.
There is no story in this movie. Vejitas brother will come to earth, he is followed by 2 enemies who followed Freeza, of course Goku and friends will help him out here. The movie is just a show where the characters of the original Dragonball series get to parade around, fight two enemies and show of their powers and then the movie ends, It’s nothing special.
The two bad guys in this movie are by far the worst villains in the entire franchise. They are ugly, stupid, not imposing at all and could easily be defeated in a 10th of a second if the good guys weren’t fooling around. Not to mention their backdrop story. Ex Ginyu force members that for an unknown reason got as strong as Freeza and go to the planet with the most powerful warriors in the universe in order to beat a weak kid. A salute to the scriptwriters!
Another problem with this movie is that it will not take the GT timeline into account so if you are wondering where Vejitas brother came from or went to you will not get any explanation of that.
A plus is that the opening theme for the movie is “Cha-la Head-Cha-La”, i liked it very much, i also liked how they used familiar background music/ambient is also here in the special.
To sum it all up, do not expect to much from this movie. However, it’s fun to watch at least once just to se all the old faces again.
