“ To fix the character with one of the worst backstories the movies had ever contrived, they focused on what worked.
“That Broly isnt there in this movie, and if I'm honest, the first part of the movie, the flashback, that part was great, excellent even, but the fight and "whole idea about broly" , it just feels like a way too long friendly practice fight.
“ The attacks these guys do against each other is breathtaking, but it feels empty when the characters are unscathed from being punched in to a mountain.
“ So giving him this posture and letting him be on good terms with Goku was far too unexpected.
“ Mind blowing movie , must watch .
“ The main fight in the second half is intense as all get out.
“ Breathtaking .
“ Not some earth shattering masterpiece but it's funny, action packed and the art style seems to have gotten down the perfect balance between the original softer lines of OG dragon ball and dbz.
“ However, that being said it was a fun experience to see Goku's mother Gine finally drawn out in front of us.
“ It's an impressive battle, with some pretty great direction and engaging moments.
“ A very good plot, with exciting easter eggs for the fans, and about 40 final minutes of a battle simply epic, incredible and visually unique; and humorous scenes ful fill and are very funny.
“ Potentially intriguing to even non-fans of Dragon Ball .
“ Definitely a movie worth the watch!
“ With such an intriguing backstory on the history of Saiyans and a brilliantly structured build-up to an epic fight between Broly, Goku, and Vegeta, there was still time to cherish the nostalgia with some nods to previous moments in the beloved saga, as well as some hilarious comedy bits.
“ It does this with its more compelling characters and backstories for this universe.
“ The other side is shown during the intense action scenes when he sheds all emotion and turns into a savage monster that embodies everything from the original noncanon movie.
“ This is a movie that deserves to be seen in the cinema, it is unique and very exciting.
“ The movie takes the animation to another new level with continuous thrills and unexpected scenarios.
“They took an old character, a villain with no personality and made him lovable, enjoyable, deep and even stronger.
“I believe if you're completely new then it may be a very shallow and confusing movie and the only thing that might do it for you is the animation and fights.
“I would love to say something more but I can't, because this movie HAS NO STORY.
“ Broly is truly a Fun and action packed movie , you will truly enjoy from start to end.
“ Thankfully there are many visual treats here, but all as formulaic as ever, you will see our main characters start out at their normal base level, then slowly ramp up with increasing levels of strength and set pieces until something inevitably happens to push the fight over the edge and end it.
“ Moment's like this make any character moments that need to shine fall flat, nothing is consistent, everything is convenient, references and callbacks like the Krilin/Namek moment or the fusion dance nonsense is all here in it's boring glory.
“ All that combined made a movie worth watching every single minute.
“ This film had everything From a backstory for Broly that is Worth it A deeper backstory to the destruction of Planet Vegeta Gogeta Stunning animation Comedy A love front Broly of all things As what Chris Sabat said, like a sexual experience.
“ Action was insane, one of the most intense and best anime fight scenes I've seen in a long while.
“ The new characters were also enjoyable and the creatures from Broly's planet were really interesting, especially his giat pet.
“ The only real problem I have with the movie is the incredibly bland retelling of the Dragon Ball Minus Manga.
“ Really, the whole second half of the movie is one drawn out battle.
“Voice acting from the Funimation legends is top-notch, whereas the score gives some thrilling vibes, with it being repetitive at some points and lacking the epicness of Sumitomo's work in the past films and the recent series.
“ All the characters were respected (contrary to the more childish, yes even way more childish DBSuper movies), but also totally boring.
“ It kicks straight into high gear and just keeps getting more intense.
“ Your eyes wander throughout the screen trying to take in every color change, every deviation of position of the characters, and it becomes both overwhelming but also engaging in a way that allows you to have a clear understanding of what each character is doing, and for that reason alone it is extremely entertaining.
“ Totally worth watching.
“ Great fun for all Dragon Ball fans, with a brief history of the Saiyans, mind blowing effects and great action, this is the best Dragonball movie.
“ With the likes of takahashi and Naotoshi shida handling the main action parts of the film, the fight scenes are absolutely mind blowing.
“ Since the ending is predictable from even before the fight begins, it feels that the film was a bit stretched to try to reach the two-hour runtime.
“ The ending is predictable before we reach half-runtime, and the spoiler-heavy trailers didn't help to keep surprise as a factor.
“ Highly predictable and unoriginal.
“ I only enjoyed this because I'm a die hard fan but the movie's pacing starts slow.
“pointless transformations and inconsistent stories, inconsistent character development or should I say, none at all.. power levels that just keep changing even more until they become unrecognizable and basically useless.
“That Bardock sequence was so boring that I almost closed my eyes for a nap.
“ Animation is mind blowing, the style of drawing, storyline, it's just amazing.
“ Definitely worth the watch.
“ A long chapter enjoyable only for fans .
“ Very enjoyable .
“ Everything is so fluid, colourful and exciting to watch thanks to Shintani's new art direction, giving a fresh take on the early DBZ style.
“ Enjoyable .
“ It's always fighting a tough villain, so without character development, it gets really boring.
“ The animation isn't always perfect and the action long winded, but is a great and enjoyable time at the theater and one that I feels really works in spades.
“What a waste of time.
“Pros:Animation is very fun, exciting, and refreshing to watch.
“ The film doesn't stay there very long and when the titular characters finally meet, the action that follows is relentless and intense.
“And then theres the story, for the most part i enjoyed it.
“The choreography was pretty decent for what you could see when the cinematographers didn't insist on using the "shake effect", making it harder to follow what was already a hard to follow fight.
“ Enjoyable anime journey .
“As for this movie, same as the so called series, boring fights, boring dialogue, yelling every 5 seconds like idiots, horrible animation, jumping all over the place you can't even see the fight just flying around....
“ This is an amazing movie with a great, fascinating story.
“ Fights are intense and the history does makes sense.
“ Entertaining enough .
“ Unequivocally stunning .
“ Highly recommend it, you won't be sorry!!!
“ Since it"s only 1 hour 30 minutes long the movie feels kinda rushed and thus lacks some dragged out scenes that could have made the moments even more epic.
“ Packed with hilarious characters, epic action sequences, and an intriguing plot line, Broly is a must see for young and old, male and female, and animation/live action film buffs alike.
“ It will keep you on the edge of your seat as you're wondering how each are going to overcome what's going to happen next.
“ I didn't like that there was no detail to characters until a match started, they look bland and unfinished like a cheap cartoon.
“ Instead you get a repetitive predictable slog of a beatdown with no twists or anything to worry about.
“ I waited so long for this movie to see how everything becomes pointless.
“ Enjoyable movie with anime comic scenes, and great graphics.
“ Flawless and entertaining .
“ Even with that in mind, I still think the ending felt a bit rushed, contradicting the somewhat slow pace during the first two acts.
“ Especially if you haven't seen the three above mentioned, these moments will just seem pointless to you.
“ The story is actually engaging and the fight sequence is amazing.
“ Many scenes action packed and vividly colourful.
“ It's mindblowing and it's totally worth watching.
