Our Review : Another Dragon Ball Z movie, another improvement on the ones I've watched before. This makes 4 in a row!!! This one is especially surprisingly - it turned out to be quite a good action anime overall, and not just compared to the other movies of the franchise. As far as fighting anime go, it's certainly not quite as the same level as the Street Fighter 2 animated movie, but still it's pretty good.
The action is quite absorbing for once, consisting of more than just ultra fast punching sequences, and the story is actually slightly more sophisticated than the usual "here's a new boss, now go get him, Goku" format that I've come to expect from the Dragon Ball Z movies. Unfortunately, given the incompetence of the story board of the franchise, it also means there are more plot holes - you would think it's impossible to have plot holes in a plot that's as thin as this, but they somehow managed it. The ease with which the Eternal Dragon is summoned seems like a bit of a cheat - if they can summon him that easily and get it to grant any wish, surely they can just used it to solve any problem? It's funny how they used it to solve one small problem in their path rather than the root of their problems. Also, the ending... it's kinda hard to be any more specific since it would count as a spoiler, so lets just say the way it ends is pretty ridiculous.
