Format: DVD
This movie is a poor adaptation of the anime that loses points for not staying true to the storyline.

The movie tries to use the original Dragonball story line of Goku meeting up with Bulma and Master Roshi and Yamcha, etc... but the story gets taken in wrong directions. For starters, Goku is supposed to be a very young boy, but the movie has him turning 18 before his adventures start. Throughout the Dragonball series, Bulma isn't much of an action hero, rather she is a comedic teenage girl that makes us laugh. The movie tries to portray her as a Tomb Raider style gun toting action star with horrible aim. The worst alteration of the story line is messing with Goku's origins (*spoiler alert* that he is Piccolo's minion reborn, rather than a Saiyin).

If this movie would have been a simple martial arts film, it would have done better. But because they tried to use the Dragonball story and then changed it in key areas, it comes up short.

Give this one a pass (or just rent it) unless you are an avid collector.

An 80 minute-long movie about a 30-year old manga character. There really isn't much to be said except that it doesn't take itself seriously and it takes itself too seriously as well... It's bad. Not bad, but BAAAAD. Stupid characters, none of them looking like their manga counterparts except for Bulma.

Sadly, the entire enterprise falls very far from the tree and makes for an unsatisfying result. Keep your expectations REALLY low... and if you can, make sure they're even LOWER than that.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2014
Format: Blu-ray
Disclaimer: I am not a fan of Dragonball, Dragonball Z, or any other things having to do with Dragonballs. No hate, just not a fan.

So when I saw "Dragonball: Evolution," all I knew about the series was what I gleaned from wikis and Abridged Series... and I STILL found plenty to mock and criticize. This movie is an incoherent mess with no real motivations or plot -- fans will be frothing at the mouth at the stuff it changes, and non-fans will be completely baffled.

On his eighteenth birthday, high-school outcast/martial artist Goku (Justin Chatwin) is given a magical Dragonball by his grandfather Gohan (Randall Duk Kim). But when he returns home from a party, Goku finds that Gohan has been murdered by the evil demon Piccolo (James Marsters), who is trying to gather all the Dragonballs so he can... do something.

Like any good Obi-Wan, Gohan's dying message is to find somebody to finish Goku's training. So Goku joins forces with the eccentric Master Roshi (Chow-Yun Fat), along with the Dragonball-obsessed Bulma Briefs (Emmy Rossum) and desert bandit Yamcha (Joon Park). This little group must gather all the Dragonballs before the eclipse, or Piccolo will... do something.

"Dragonball Evolution" is a great example of why live adaptations of anime don't turn out well -- not faithful enough to satisfy Dragonball fans, but too esoteric for newcomers. But even if that weren't true, the movie would still be a mess -- it feels like nobody cared enough to do more than slap everything hastily together.

Almost nothing is explained (like Piccolo's motives). Instead it just coasts along, hoping that the splashes of CGI and wacky acting will distract you from the incoherent plot.

This movie is without a doubt one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I am a huge fan of Dragonball and Dragonball Z but this film has very little in common with the great manga besides the name and the characters. They completely change characters personalities around by making cheerful Goku a emo kid. The acting is very poor and they explain very little important plot points. I seriously hope they don't make a second one and that they reboot the series with a new director that would actually put some effort into it. It only get's one star because I can't give negative stars.
