Dragonball: Evolution DVD Cover Art and Specs

Quite possibly the most debated, hated, and derided movie of all time arrives on DVD in Blu-Ray and standard DVD July 28 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The “Dragonball: Evolution” DVD (dubbed the “Z Edition”) will feature over an hour of extras, including eight deleted scenes and a gag reel. Plus, all the usual DVD specials like behind-the-scenes and making-of featurettes. Cover art and specs for the DVD release below.

Based on one of the most popular Japanese manga series of all time, Dragonball: Evolution follows a young warrior on an epic adventure to discover his destiny…and save the world from the forces of darkness.

For his eighteenth birthday, mild-mannered Goku is given a mystical Dragonball, one of only seven in existence, which combine to grant a perfect wish to whoever possesses them. But an ancient warlord named Piccolo has escaped eternal imprisonment and is on his own quest to gather the Dragonballs. Goku must enlist the help of his friends—and the power of his evolving martial arts skills—to defeat Piccolo before it’s too late! Packed with spectacular visual effects, high-flying action, and over an hour of hard-hitting extras, Dragonball: Evolution Z-Edition brings the legend to life as never before!

    Well, whats there to say that hasnt been said already. i just watched the damn film that i found in someones garbage, and later threw it out myself. I had high hopes for this movie whenever it was first announced.. but over the months, Fox and the dumbasses that made this film, slowly rapped my dreams and left them to die in a gutter. There is a special place in hell for these people.

    To ANYONE who has seen this and said this is the WORST movie they’ve seen they need to get out more. Is it a good movie? NO. Sorry. But is it the worst ever. Not by far. First of all go see STreet Fighter: The LEgend of Chun-Li THAT was horrid. I actually wanted to watch the travesty that was the original Jean Claude Van Damme version.

    I am a DB/DBz fan. Have been for years, and I NEVER thought this was a good idea. Ok maybe when I first started watching it I said “Hey that’d be cool if they made a real movie,” and then I realized how bad it would be. NO ONE would take the plot of ths show seriously and there in lies the problem. The source material, as awesome as it is, is very weak. Carboard chracters with no real development over 400 episodes and 3 shows. Seriously. Here’s the basic formula to the series: Evil villain appears or threat of villain in found.
    -Heores begin training to prepare for battle
    -Battle ensues, someone dies.
    -Battle continues, Hero gains new power level, defeats villain
    -Deceased are wished back to life with Dragonballs.
    REPEAT!!!!
    Theat’s it in a nutshell.

    Now that I’ve seen it I can play devils advocate. This movie attempted to take 30+ episodes of a show a condense it into an hour and a half. I say they did a decent job considering the budget and source material. They also kept closer to the source material than people want to admit.
    THE GOOD…ok the ACCEPTIBLE:
    -Gokou’s perosnality. Gokou in the manga/anime is a very naive, good hearted, and brave character who loves to eat and fight. In the film he’s been aged to his teens (Thank god cause the idea of watching a 12 year old as the protagonist for this is just scary), and yet his peronality remains wholy unchanged. Yeah they use High School as a setting for him, but he’s still good hearted, loves to eat, but instead of naive they made him slightly shy and out of place (which his son Gohan ends up feeling like later in the show). Justin Chatwin wasn’t a great choice but he wasn’y as bad as I thouhgt hed be. On another note though they should have spent more time training as his lack of any real fights was upsetting.
    -Piccollo. At least he looked the part. Wish he was on screen more. And with marster’s already being not only a fan but already being familiar with action, he should have had some kick ass fights, but I guess they didn’t want him upstaging the hero.
    -Ki manipulation/energyballs/KameHameHa! Stuff looked good to me. The aura around Gokou as he powered up, the more intricate hand motions, and he definitely said it right. Everyones bitching about Gokou launching himself when he threw the KamHameHa, but Gohan did something similar in movie 9 agains Bojack. Check it out.
    -Oozaru. So what if he wasn’t 30 feet tall and there wasn’t a tail. The tail woulda looked bad and so would a 30 foot tall were-monkey. They got the look right for the creature, and granted it didn’t look that real it woulda looked worse at the giant size.
    -Roshi. Over the top is part of the character. If you don’t like it then you hate the character. He was more perverted than the americanized cartoon version, and yet still had his moments of sagely advice.

    THE BAD, and THE WORSE
    -Dialogue. Seriously? “Believe it punk, you’re getting your clock cleaned?” Wow man.
    -Fights. What fights. Chi-Chi Vs Chi-Chi was the only real fight. Every thing else was pretty much throwing a punch or a kick at the camera or the generic bad guys they fight ONCE! The end fight looked cool until they get to the hand to hand stuff and it just falls apart. They basically embrace, spinn and punch each other in the face. An extra month or so of training and that coulda been a real DB fight. And thats the thing, thats what the show is all about, and to take that out of it is taking away the best part of the show.
    -Yamcha. WTF? Personality was right (minus the fear of girls), but other than that he was useless. I woulda loved to see him and Gokou go at it, and knock the crap outta him with the “Wolf fang Fist.” I understand they gave him blonde hair because in the anime his hair is kinda similar to Goou, but you have an asian playing him so I really don’t think we’d get them mixed up.

    NEEDED WORK
    -The story. It was an adaptation. Toriyama himself said he saw this as an alternate reality of the universe he created. That being said I didn’t have an issue som uch with what they changed as how half assed they did things. Everything felt rushed. Gokou pining after a girl didn’t bother me so much as the whole cliched, the girl can get him to focus scene.

    Like I said I never thought this was a good idea, but people should be happy they got anything at all with what the source material was. Am I buying it…maybe if I see it for like $2 somewhere to add to my Guyver live action flicks, and the Street Fighter movie when I get it (The JCVD one), but it was not the train wreck Legend of Chun-Li was, and stayed closer to and resembles the source material better.

      soooo basicly what u described was garbage.

      blonde yamcha scared of women… opposite. he was a Bandit with long black hair and an attitude.

      roshi was an old wise perverted martial arts instructor , a bald 1 that generally wore a turtle shell at that.

      the deal with the kamehameha is how he use it i believe = garbage cuz this isnt gohan vs bojak its goku vs King Piccolo should have punched a hole in him :)

      Oozaru – homosexual why even include him if ur gonna make him look like a Rejected character from star trek deep space 9

      goku – high school? ur serious come now Goku was about as smart as a box of wet rocks.

      piccolo almost looked right i think a green wesley snipes with antennas and fangs woulda worked better than a doosh waffle with a stiff neck.

      final summation they took a great cartoon series watered it down as much as possible ruined the characters that we all loved changed the story as much as possible and casted doosh waffles for the characters. did anyone responsible for this movie know what the crap they were doing at all ? not likely. people that never watched the show were tasked with recreating it = main stream poser material.
