i thought the budget was 50,000,000
Check out my anime reviews at: http://www.youtube.com/grapplerjmo
I look the movie and my opinion is this:
I dont like very much this movie, dont heave the touch of the anime.
The Oozaru is the King Kong? xD
Bulma in this movie is the Lara Croft --'. This movie is good just the title "Dragon Ball@ don't is the perfect, the perfect title is One Boy Kung Fu or One Live, etc.
the movie was a big FAIL. just awful. don't watch it.
Akira killed DBZ with the Buu saga, GT and this movie were just beating a dead horse.
i love dragonball........love it, but this movie was the biggest piece of trash i'd ever seen. i was throwing up half way threw it and my girl had to stop me from blowing my brains out by the end.
I'll admit, I had high hopes for this movie. Even when the screenshots and trailers were released, I kept reasuring myself that it was going to be entertaining.
I was wrong.
The movie sucked. Sucked sucked sucked. The only resembelece to Dragon Ball it had was the names, pretty much.
I love Dragon Ball, it was the series that got me into anime/manga and I still love it with a firey passion. But the movie...couldn't they have at least tried?
Oh, and the budget was actually 30 Million. Not much.
i mean it turned from goku the alien to goku the high schooler who can't get laid.................it was almost Offensive how bad this movie was.
In some parts, the storyline was quite accurate to the original anime and manga, but they made several questionable alterations and that is what led to its downfall.
Chaos makes life fun, but order is a safety net.
Oh, the movie was OK to Good,,,, ONLY if you have NO clue as to the supposedly being based off an anime series. I thought the movie was okay,,,, aslong as I avoided thinking of the many, many changes to the original storyline. But of coures, the other "live action" movie they had done wasn't much better. Goku riding a elephant, come on?
Honestly, I really haven't seen too many titles that translated over to Liveaction very well. For some un-Godly reason, they usually do a cruddy retelling. Change the storyline up so much, and ignore alot if not all the truely "important" parts. I can understand the need to fit alot of storyline into 2-2.5 hours of movie, but come on. They butcher the story most of the time. It's sad really.
Perhaps if they had done it in a CG format, maybe they would have captured the essence of Dragonball better.

Honestly, I doubt it. They never really seem to worry about keepin with any original storyline. Nowadays, it's all about the flash and effects.
Sucked pretty hard, complete failure.
Justin Chatwin... =D I think it would have been more popular if they had represented the better known Z fighters before jilting us out of our animated world with a Dragonball variant. The culture mesh was tacky, while Western-decorated-Asia looked good in the comic, an American Goku and Bulma made a Japanese Yamtcha seem a generation older than the stud in the imagery that we all love and know.
Yeah, I'm years too late to the table, but this just has to be said.
"Anime's from Japan, right? Just put a bunch of Martial Arts nonsense in the movie, slap on the show's title, and rake in the bucks." To them, anime only appeals to the anime market, and thus there's no need to invest heavily in a movie about any anime since the market isn't that wide here. As compared to comics, which have bred whole generations of fans and are instantly recognizable even by those who's never seen the pages of a comic book before. In the West, of course.
The current HW execs, obviously, are unfamiliar with the medium. After all, anime is made with the essence of Eastern culture— and these 100 million dollar blockbuster-wannabes are made by very Western studios for the West. Not just fans of the show, but a wide market. There simply isn't any care put into these movies because of this. Imagine if they made a live-action Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. They'd take the character names, find vaguely similar people to cast, and then tack on an "Epic" (by Hollywood standards) plot that bares little resemblance to the show and falls vastly short of what we'd expect. It's also why video games movies tend to fail as well. They're not seen as profitable because one hasn't "broken through" yet, compared to American comics, but that's because the common person on the street isn't expected to know any anime outside of Pokemon or, if lucky, Dragon Ball Z. But every American knows Superman and Batman and Spiderman.
