Dragon Ball has always promised us a few things: great fight scenes, a hungry protagonist, evil villains and hilarious sub-plotsfiller. This movie, for me, captures basically all of these. The movie starts with Chi-Chi trying to put on a good impression for a school she wants Gohan to get into. Seeing Goku in a suit trying to pass off reading as one of his hobbies is hilarious enough, but seeing Krillin try and do karaoke is the icing on the cake!
When we are finally greeted with the main plot of this movie, we are introduced to Broly and his father. They attempt to convince Vegeta that they are trying to resurrect a new planet Vegeta and want him to be their bountiful master. They take him and a bunch of the other Z-fighters with them. However, they tell him of a legendary super saiyan who needs to be dealt with. Of course, with a movie title like "Broly - the legendary super saiyan" I think its no spoiler that Broly is that person!
When Goku arrives things finally kick off and Broly is unleashed. Broly was born with a power level "over 9000 (or 8000 if you watch the series in Japanese)!!" and he hates Goku...why? Well, in true DBZ style, the reason is hilarious. I won't spoil it, but it will make you chuckle. For those who say the reason is stupid, I urge you to remember what you are watching...
The fight scenes that follow are nothing short of incredible. It is some of the best action I have ever seen in Dragon Ball. Super saiyans are here, there and EVERYWHERE. Ki-blasts are flying, punches are being thrown and environments are being pummelled. It is great stuff and I am sure if you enjoy classic Dragon Ball Z, you will enjoy this. The finale is great because it incorporates a sense of teamwork, despite Vegeta's reservation to act for anyone but himself!
All in all, this is a great Dragon Ball movie. It is my personal favourite and I highly recommend you watch it. If you are new to the world of Dragon Ball, I recommend that you watch the series first, because it will flow better.
