Dragonball Evolution: Homage or Parody?

Posted in Movies and Films with tags , , , , , , on March 19, 2010 by Pirate

I watched Dragonball: Evolution today, and I wasn’t dissapointed. You see, I already knew it’d be bad and boring. This is nothing like the manga or anime!

Compare this...

The actors, for the most part, looked nothing like the manga characters, the “Mafuba” is taken way too seriously, Piccolo is, well, differnt, and who is that lady supposed to be? Goku is teased and goes to school, and Chi-Chi is a brawler!

To this. See the difference?

As for the actual movie, it just wasn’t that good. I’d take the manga or anime any day! The film’s plot is too rushed, the special effects were very weak. A blockbuster this isn’t. The romance felt contrived, and the acting wasn’t anything special, and a certain wide plot-hole at the end felt very annoying.

So true, so true.

This film did to Dragonball what that awful Mario film did to the Mario games. Avoid this film, and watch the animated ones instead.
