Dragon Ball Evolution?...

More like de-evolution. Now I'm not sure whether to be more disgusted at the name or the movie itself.

Wow, that's so sad.

If this was anything other then a previously established series, I would be psyched, cause the trailer does look cool.

But knowing that it's Dragonball and seeing all the crap they've changed...

Yeah. If you don't look at this as a Dragon Ball movie (but as something else), it's actually very good looking as its own thing, but because it's supposed to be based off something, it's not really supposed to be its own thing, so take it as you will. :P I might just see this movie because of that, not because it's Dragon Ball. -_-

Let's just hope this doesn't become liked enough for a sequel (a la DBZ movie). I'd be better off not knowing how horribly they would portray Vegeta.

Well the new trailer at least convinced me to go ahead and see it again, but that's about it.

I thought Goku's Kamehameha was rather weak though, no emotion. It makes me wanna show him how to really pull a Kamehameha wave out of your fool; I would be an amazing Goku.

Heh.. Same here I guess.

Aren't Kamehameha Waves pretty weak in Dragon Ball anyway compared to DBZ? :P (well, except Roshi's when he's at full power)

=o I'm sure you would. So would I if I tried hard enough I guess, but that goes without saying.

Actually, I'm sure pretty much any of us could do a better job as Goku than Justin Chatwin. He looks like your stereotypical gamer, skinny and pale.

They should've had someone cool, liek... Vin Diesel with spiky hair. (J/k)

And I'm a little downed that Bulma lacks blue hair.

Same, and I find it even more weird that she's actually useful (combat-wise).

Wow, they really thought this through didn't they?

I only meant that his Kamehameha was wimpy in the since that he couldnt even make it sound cool when he yells it. No dynamic building of his volume.

I swear Justin Chatwin reminds me of Frodo. -_-

Chuck Norris would have unanimously been accepted as Goku, even if he looks nothing like him..

Ah, okay. Guess I misunderstood the first part.

But yeah. Point taken. =p Didn't really sound like much of a Kamehameha Wave now that ya mention it..
If anything though, I think it's the script that killed whatever chance this movie had of being good, not necessarily the acting (granted, they did pick the wrong cast for this film, but still).
