    1. Crappy plot (doesn't follow manga at all, which, literally, spoils all)
    2. Crappy characters, including a roshi that does not look like roshi
    3. Crappy effects


    i can't believe that it TOPPED the singapore box office...... [​IMG]

    I watched the CAM version yesterday and it was horrible. I laughed a bit around the end because how cheesy the effects and acting was.

    ITS FUCKIN DRAGON BALL are you seriously surprised about CHEESY?

    srsly not yellin at yuh but cmon

    and TBH

    Chow Yun Fat is bad ass, not the best role for him but ya know.

    The movie is more for those that were not into the manga/show because if it was it would be a b movie hands down. Its big but not as big as one would hope, DBZ is a lot bigger than DB.

    The movie is for teens that didnt grow up with Dragon Ball

    and Pic... CMON

    What's amazing is that someone actually took the time to say DBZ: Evolution is a bad movie. We all knew, right from the start, that it would be abysmal [​IMG]

    Never expected it to be good, especially since Akira Toriyama (creator of DB) denied any involvement in the live action movie.
    My mate owns every box set of the anime, some 1 or 2000+ dollars worth and refuses to watch Evolution so it isn't ruined for him. It is for me what is going to happen to S.Darko, the unofficial sequel to Donnie Darko which the original writer denies involvement in and which all people who enjoyed the first one will probably refuse to watch.

    The whole point of this film was to get away from manga and try to bring in a new light to DB, the games are sucky now and DB:GT was a pile of shit, it a franchise that is dying so they trying to milk it, i'll still watch it even tho i loved DBZ because i couldnt careless that is live action, if the film would of come out with a different name and diff chars but same film maybe just maybe the outcome would of been different

    Wait.... people are complaining that a movie based on Dragonball is.. cheesy?! Yes because a comic book about a boy with a tail who goes around trying to summon a dragon isn't cheesy..........

    Most movies based on games are crap its a written rule lol, although the new dragon ball (saiyan invasion) looks like it could be a step up from the usual fighting game dross
