The most FUN of the DBZ movies

"Dragonball Z isn't deep philosophy, but it sometimes has surprising little twists and turns that take it beyond the nonstop buttkicking festival that it appears to be. This is NOT the case in Movie 7 (called "The Three Super-Saiyajin" in Japan). However, as a basic quick intro to the characters and the power levels of DBZ, Movie 7 is actually one of the best and most enjoyable of the Dragonball Z movie series. As actual stories, I prefer movie 2 ("The World's Strongest", featuring a mad scientist and his super-technological creations against the Z-team) and the double bill of 5 and 6 (the "Cooler" movies). The Three Super Saiyajin, however, is just a more FUN movie. No real wasted time; we set up our heroes in nice calm settings, and then send some nasty androids to attack them, letting the action continue until the very end. This movie also features two of the "coolest entrances in Anime" sequences: one for Vegita, one for Piccolo. Well worth the watching. If you like DBZ, or if you'd like one mindless-but-fun anime combat fest to watch, grab this one."

"If you like fighting.... this one has it all. This movie takes place during the Android Saga. The Z gang must help defend Goku from Dr. Gero's androids 13, 14 and 15. Androids 14 and 15 lead the way into battle until android 13 shows up. Just when the Z team thinks things are all under control, Super Android 13 is born. Originally named Three Great Super Saiyans, there is plenty of action in this one. The plot is revenge and the story is battle. This is also the first appearance of Trunks in a movie.There are 13 movies in all. Movie 6 was the start of the good ones. From here on in.... they just get better! Oh, don't forget the OVA."

"I watched this movie years ago, uncut and in the original Japanese. The story (what little there is) was simple enough to figure out without needing a translation. Diehard fans of the American series should keep in mind the movies are only loosely tied with the television series, and don't tie in directly with the television series continuity.
That being said, this movie contains the best fight sequences, character design and animation the series has to offer. I recommend the subbed version- Goku's screams are best heard in the original Japanese!"
I think the bad reviews are wrong...

"I read a review below that stated basically stated the only good thing about this movie was the joke Vejita made at the end. True, the dub version is a little bland... but to be expected coming from FUNImation. However, even the english voices are getting better... just not the alterations the made about the script... including the joke by Vejita at the end. WHICH ISN'T THERE IN THE JAPANESE VERSION, THANK GOD. It completely ruined the silent effect of the scene between the two greatest conversationalists in DBZ... Vejita and Piccolo. *Sarcasm included*The movie starts out with the characters doing every-day shopping in an every-day city. This is one of the reasons I enjoyed this movie. You catch a glimps of the characters in their normal lives when the biggest villian they have to fight are the lines at the checkout counter... something which rarely happens... and my favorite part of the movie. I'm a sucker for character behavior development, what can I say?The fight scenes are decent... they get a little more graphic than the series does, especially with poor Vejita and Trunks. Once again, Krillin provides the comic relief and Piccolo saves Gohan's day while Vejita boasts about being the only one capable of defeating Kakarott. This is a common formula in the later movies, but I still enjoy it. Bottom line: an awesome Japanese Dragon Ball Z movie... one of the top three. The english version? Well, it didn't help change my oppinion about FUNImation... but that was to be expected."
