Dragonball Evolution was actually okay. If you go into it expecting a relatively low budget film adaption that takes liberties from the source material like the Resident Evil films, then you'll probably be somewhat amused by it. It's nothing close to the abortion that was the Chun Li film, or the original Dragonball live action film. But if you've only ever seen Dragonball Z, and not the original Dragonball, then you'll probably hate this anyways.

wasn't there a hong kong live adaptation of dragonball? i remember reading about it was more true to the lore (compared to evolution, but then again, that's not saying much).

Evolution, for people who watched the series, is just fucking piss funny. It's EXACTLY what you expect of a Hollywood adap. It's like that piss-take US Doctor Who someone posted a while back, but real.

Spoiler: show
Special props to the decision to have him go Ozaru, but not Super Saiyan. That's pure Hollywood, right there...

Again, I feel like all this hating is by people who watched Dragonball Z and not Dragonball. The story is called "Dragonball: Evolution" not "Dragonball Z: Evolution" and is based on Dragonball, not Dragonball Z. There's no Super Saiyan stuff, because that crap didn't exist back in Dragonball. Being an adaptation of Dragonball, it was actually pretty faithful to the story and how it pans out.

God damn did I write the word Dragonball one too many times just now.

But the Ozaru isn't until DBZ, is it? And Piccolo wasn't the big bad guy of DB...

Piccolo was the biggest, baddest enemy of the original Dragonball. And the Ozaru form was there from day one:

Heh. Weird. It's been a long fucking time since I watched the original...

Still, the film is bad. Dialogue and acting-wise. And the Kamehame-ha looked all wrong.

Just saiyan. :P

Compared to most kung fu action flicks, it was fine. And honestly, the sfx were fine as well. It's not like the kamehameha was a completely different color and shaped like stars or something ridiculous. It got the look and feel down well enough. Again, with tempered expectations, this film was alright and kind of fun.

Seriously fluffy, you need to go back and watch the old Dragonball stuff. I like Z, but the original is so much better. All Z is only about being pumped and blowing shit up. The original show was much more about hangin' out, havin' a good time, and going on adventures with your friends. I like that kind of show far more:

Might have to see if I can borrow a mate's collection.

Does it have the DBZ disease of taking 20 episodes just to have a fight?

Sometimes, but on average not as much. Especially the first two or so seasons, the show clips along at a rather enjoyable pace.

That's good then. I mean, Cell Saga was great and all, but fuck that 15-episodes-a-fight noise.

That's kind of why I like Dragonball Kai. Sure, it's cutting a lot out of the show... but I've already seen all that bullshit before. It's kind of like watching a summary and getting the important gist of it all, and I like that. No fight drags on for longer than a single episode unless it's with the main badguy.
