Dragonball Evolution Trailer

Submitted by: Monsdurr 8 years ago in Entertainment

...are you sure this isn"t a parody by CollegeHumor? So the question is: Did Hollywood get it right with this one?

I`ve seen it: it`s okay but it`s just one disappointment after the other. believe me when I say that I would have enjoyed the movie more if I didn`t knew the manga/anime

This is gonna be a joke. It doesn`t even follow the story. It`s just a movie that happens to be called Dragonball with characters that happen to be called Goku and Bulma and such.

Other than the fact that Goku is a little bit cute and the fight scenes should provide some legitimate form of entertainment, I feel like this movie is gonna piss me off. I hate Bulma, but Bulma fighting? Already I have a tic in my eye...

This movie is a disaster waiting to happen.

It deviates too far from the original series, alienating the actual FANS of dragonball. They`re already bitching about it on forums.

And yet, it`s still too weird for American audiences. I mean, it`s good for a JAPANESE movie; they have poo like this all the time in theatres over they`re. They`re releasing this movie in the wrong market. It`s doomed for failure and it might just ruin a few careers.

Damn.

Dragon ball you guys, NO Z, dragon ball was alot less flashy/kamehame-y then Z, more normal fighting. and ya, see if you can get that bluma-blue hair before you start complaining about how "it doesn`t look like the cartoon"

Personally I welcome the idea, i mean, there hasn`t been any new dragonball stuff since they unloaded the poopile they called GT on us.

Looks like it`s probably nothing like the cartoon at all... Which is good, because I`ll be damned if I`m going to sit there for an hour and a half of nothing happening only to realize it`s the first movie in a series that makes up one fight scene.

I think in order to appreciate this film, one will have to separate the canon of the saga with the action of this movie. Of course they can`t recreate the series--would you really want them to? This is the filmmaker`s attempt to combine a classic anime with traditional kung fu movies. Overall, I believe this will be a fantastic movie with decent special effects, but if I at all slip into the mindset of expecting a recreation of the cartoon and comics, I know I will be very sadly disappointed.

I think a piece of my childhood died and was stomped on mercilessly..

That being said, it could be a good movie IF

#1 They never called it dragonball
#2 All the characters were named other then names from Dragonball.
#3 All the abilities/items (dragonballs) were some sort of different artifacts (like.. symbols.. I dunno, and maybe change Kamehameha to actually not saying anything and shooting blue beams)

If it wasn`t so drastically different in every way/shape/form besides the names of the characters, it might be ok.. -.-

Ill still watch it though, you have to so you can appreciate what it should have been.

lol of course bulma has guns - she shoots goku in the head the first time she meets him

i`d be more inclined to watch this film if it didnt have the dragonball name on it, it looks crap but in a fun way, but at te same time ther than a few name drops has so little to do with dragonball its unreal

comes to something when the shoddy old chinese live action dragonball is more accurate than your big budget effort

this looks terrible it doesn`t fit in at all Bulma never hasguns and she has blue hair Master Roshi isn`t even old!! This is gonna just be terrible nobody will like it. Dragonball and Dragonballz were awesome apart from the buu saga i thought that was poo but anyway. And is this meant to be Dragonball or Dragonball Z. I haven`t seen/read Dragonball for ages but wasn`t goku a kid when he fought Picolo? But this justy looks terrible anyway so it probably doesn`t matter anyway

The story of Dragon Ball seems to have been extremely modernized for this movie. Thats to be expected, but it takes away nice childhood memories of the series. I used to be inlove with the first season when I was in elementary school.

Well, to be fair, Superman/Clark Kent`s an alien, so does that mean he isn`t caucasion?
No, but he `looks` it because his skin colour is closest to them.

So I think Goku should still be played by an asian character.

WHY COULDN`T THEY JUS TMAKE THIS MOVIE AN ANIMATION OR SOMETHING INSTEAD OF LIVE-ACTION?

I think a live-action Viewtiful Joe would be jilarious. Avid Merrion should play as Joe.

Wow, this needs to be boycotted and the director and producers sued for defamation of character(s). We don`t want to send the message that making movies based on anime is bad, just that making bad movies that are bastardized versions of anime is bad. This would be a great movie if done right but they don`t even have Krillin.

Oh god this is gonna suck. I hate when hollywood modernizes things for like mainstream viewing. The Forbidden Kingdom could have been so bad ass but they had to go and drat it up with white kids, same things gonna happen here.

Yeah, the story is pretty crap, but only in the later episodes of DBZ. Dragonball was pretty amazing, it had a good plot and was really interesting. It was only after Goku fought Vegeta that the pattern of monotonous fighting appeared.

"dumb asses its a new version of it
what u want them to copy an anime that is already done and over"
And yeah, thats what fans want, part of why it was so amazing was the landscapes, the buildings and vehicles. I almost cried when i saw that abomination of a vehicle Bulma popped out, looked like a transformers abortion.

OK the storyline of Dragonball Z and GT pretty much sucked d*ck, you`re right... supervillian comes, hero trains than beats supervillian but the storyline for the original Dragonball manga was a little more intricate than that. Besides a lot of great anime`s that are out now like Naruto and One Piece (though not really a great story line there either but still popular) take from Dragonball. Masashi Kishimoto himself drew upon Goku to make Naruto or was that Eichiro Oda for Luffy... if u want great storyline in Anime, you need go watch Miyazaki movies or soemthing,


Oh. My. God. You, sir, are a complete dumbpoo. I will admit however, that Dragonball GT was pure poo, but DBZ was, and still is the GREATEST Anime ever. It has influenced almost everything you see today (In the Manga/Anime world) and still proves to be a popular Anime. Hell, DBZ was what made Anime popular in North America.

Also, Bulma is a scientist--she NEVER fights! And I just never pictured Goku as a white frat boy... What a waste of money; they could have made an animated movie instead and actually gotten a few people excited.

Dragonball was pretty horrible written, I`ll sum up the plot for the entire series of dragonball. Fight evil super villain, get beaten by super villain, train for another 20 episodes, beat super villain, another super villain shows up who is even more powerful than the other villain who supposedly was the most powerful being in the universe, repeat cycle.

But Zerocyde is just being intolerant of anything he doesn`t like. Sure you don`t like Japanese culture, that doesn`t make everyone who does like it retarded. It`s like me saying guns are stupid and all Americans are stupid (unless you like to shoot people because your so retarded)

Actually, Zerocide, the Deathnote trailer actually looks really good, and that`s based off of anime.

Fortunately, it`s done to look really close to the anime, in terms of artistic style and even the characters. Almost sin city-esque.

Unfortunately, it`s in Japanese, and I`ll have to wait til someone puts it on teh intarwebs as a fansub.

Actually, DBZ WAS a pretty horribly written anime.

Don`t get me wrong, it was certainly entertaining, but it was bad, oh so very bad.

As for this movie, it`s going to be disasteriffic.

A gun-slinging bulma?!?
No!

Master Roshi being a relatively young guy!?! NO! With no goatee?!?! NO NO! No Sunglasses!?!?! NO NO NO NO!

A really bad looking Piccolo which shows just how much money they`re putting into the characters.

No Oolong, or any of the perverted jokes of the original DB that made it workable for adults!?!?
NO NO NO!!!

TBH, the old guy at the end looks and acts more like I`d expect Roshi to.

Well it`s a movie about a horribly written japanese children`s cartoon.

Horribly written shows are always pooty. (unless you`re retarded)

Yep, this is real.
The casting has just been released for the Avatar: The Last Airbender movie too, and hollywood have gone a similar way.
In a heavily Asian-influenced universe, it just doesn`t fit having these pink perky western faces.

I guess these films aren`t made for the fans, eh?

This is an abomination! The casting looks horrible! The music is nothing like what the many years of DB and DBZ sounded like.
