Dragonball Evolution… Uhhh

I’m not a big fan of the Dragonball series (Dragonbal, Dragonball Z, Dragonball GT and it’s respective movies) but I’m familiar with the story, the characters and the fanbase behind it simply because like most filipino’s, we grew up with Dragonball running on the tube, be it re-runs of the english or the more popular tagalog-dubbed type.  Yes, I’ve heard of the Dragonball Movie adaptation by Hollywood named Dragonball Evolution and as much as possible, I tried to steer clear of the trailers because of the bad hype the movie has been getting.

Then I saw this:

The trailer itself shows how badly Hollywood screwed up this one.  Kinda reminds me of the Street Fighter movie shown way back.  No not the Van Damme one but the one’s who had Asian actors in it, chinese I believe.  Dragonball Evolution seems another failed at famed artwork to movie attempt.  I’ll still watch it just for the fun of it but I’ll get tbe movie as a rental, not in theaters.

What about you guys? What’s your take on the movie?

Have Something To Say ?

    A couple of months ago, I saw an ad of this in a freestyle humor gallery. Now, I feel my stomach suddenly got filled with too much acid and my intestines with too much bile.

    Thoroughly disgusted, I want to puke through the nose. @_@

    The whole thing looks like some low budget movie. Looks like a chinese kung-fu movie too. At least Bulma has kick ass guns…

    I’m a great great fan of dragon ball mangas (Z too). In fact I think it’s the greater manga so far (except for One Piece maybe) and I aways thought anybody could do anything more suck ass than the cartoons. So I saw this trailer.

    I don’t think I could express myself to the full extent of my disapointment so I will tell a longer history.
    In the beginning I only knew the Dragon Ball animes and they just bore me. Then I knew the mangas and I felt like the animes were like someone had beaten a dear son of a dear friend of mine, deforming an crippling him, almost to the death. This movie is worst than that.
