"After the pathetic joke that was DBZ movie 10, and after hearing so much negative talk about this one, I was a bit worried. Needless to say, it's not as bad as I thought, and it definitely isn't nearly as bad as the last film. Still, it's not a movie for every DBZ fan. First, if you consider this to be one of the more serious. It's not. This film is pretty much a pure comedic one. Heck, the main characters are Goten and Trunks, so there's already a clue it's going to be more humor than anything else. The plot is also humor-based. Mr. Satan's jealous cousin blackmails him to visiting his island to face his warriors, or else he'll reveal embarassing secrets about his childhood to the world. Goten and Trunks tag along, pretty much for the heck of it, and 18 follows as well because she wants Mr. Satan to live up to his promise of paying her for throwing the 25th Tenkaichi Budokai. Unfortunately, Jaga Bada(said cousin) has a secret weapon: a clone of saiyajin powerhouse Broly. It turns out one of the movie 10 characters found whatever was left of him after the 10th film and gave it Bada. Thus, our selection of heroes definitely , especially since there's none of the usual DBZ heavyhitters around this time.
Not that it all works out, especially since it is more humor based(a reason I hated the first few arcs in original DB). Broly's clone, for example, starts out looking like the original, but for some incredibly stupid reason gets taken and turned into a sad rip-off of Swamp Thing. The way he's defeated is probably even worse than his new design. There's also a ton of pointless errors as well. For example, since when does Trunks know the Kamehameha? The number of errors like these(and there's a lot) pretty much leave this one as a rental at best.
Oh well, next year's when things get good, especially after 2005's letdown. 2006 will have both the Fusion movie with Janemba and Gogeta that's been spoiled over and over in the US DBZ video games, as well as my favorite film, Dragon Fist(the movie with Tapion). Just have patience, because soon we're finally going to see the proverbial cloud's silver lining."

"The movies peaked with Brolly - Legendary Super Saiyan and have sharply declined in both story quality and action ever since. I only finished watching this film out of sheer morbid curiosity and was sorry I did so. This movie did not add to the series in any way, shape, or form. Yeah, I am aware that it is supposed to be funny, but they usually balance comedy with action, but this movie just stunk. Trunks and Goten are ok in small doses, but this was just too much. Fortunately there is a light at the end of the tunnel - Wrath of the Dragon is awsome (I have seen the Japanese version) and I look forward to them ending the US release of the series on a good note."
Not worth the trouble.

"I bought this hearing it was bad. Being a DBZ fan and having seen all the movies up to this one I thought hey how bad could it be. Well it made me regret the money I spent on it. If you must see it rent it or borrow it from someone they might just give it to you. Anyway the only reason I think someone should buy this is if they want to own all the DBZ movies or if you bought Triple Threat with all 3. The first 2 are a Godsend compared to this."

"Ok so your thinking THIS IS DBZ HOW CAN IT NOT BE GOOD? well it can be NOT GOOD and it is. This movie doesnt suck as much as some people would tell you but it still sucks. The 1st Broly movie was AWESOME!!! Second Coming was pretty good too and if your a dbz fanatic u definttly want this but if ur like most dbz fans you love a bunch of other animes and if Inuyasha is one of those then dont waste ur money on this go and buy Inuyasha the movie 3 Swords of an Honorable Ruler instead. That movie just plain out KICKS ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
