Burori Posted August 5, 2009 Share Posted August 5, 2009 I searched through the forums carefully for this subject but seeing as there is none I thought I would take a few moments of your time to talk to you all about this movie, Dragonball: Evolution. I know I have not been on this forums for a long while, those that would remember me would more then likely remember my old signin name which was Burori. Those that never met me I wave my hand to you all with a smile. That having been said. I took 1 hour and 25 minutes out of my day to watch this movie. I must say as a vivid fan of the Dragonball/Z/(enjoyed GT but not entirely) I must say that this movie managed to make me feel disappointed to a level that only Dragonball Z Movie 11 (Bio-Burori) managed to do in all the shows and movies I have seen of this franchise. A friend of mine told me that if I wanted to watch this movie I should watch it with an open mind, forgetting everything that I learned from the original Manga and Anime. I thought 'Sure ok. I can do that.' Then I watched the movie and for the life of me the story lingered with me and I kept compairing the two. I grew up with the Dragonball franchise. I enjoyed it, a good story, somewhat original, made by the talented Akira Toriyama. It was a story of a boy whom came to Earth from a world that was destroyed. He grew up with a loving grandfather, who took care of him like he was his own son, until well... I won't say anything that would spoil the original story element if there are anybody reading this right now that has not seen the series. The movie is like a alternate reality of the story. Everything that they showed in the movie never happened in the anime or the Manga. Don't get me wrong I understand that when a movie is made a few changes are required as it happens in any film. But what they did was completely removed the entire basis of the story and just kept minor things like the names, and a few minor items like the Dragonballs themselves. Overall I was very ashamed of this movie. Like I said earlier I bring it to level with the 11th DBZ Movie that they made. I would like to hear what other people would like to say about it. Please keep it constructive and professional. No 'I hated it' or 'it sucks' please. I would like to hear why you liked or disliked it and the reasons to support that comment. Thank you for your time and have a great day. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
