"This is definetly better than tree of might and dead zone! Dr. Wheelo and his Assistant Dr. Kochin are mad scientists who want to rule the world by having the greatest body both mentally and physically. The duo were obstructed when Dr. Wheelo's body died and only his brain was salvaged. Years later, The dragonballs are strangely gathered in a remote place called the Tsumitsibri Mountains. Piccolo, Gohan, and Oolong investigate, but Piccolo is captured! Later, when Master Roshi and Bulma are kidnapped, Goku goes to save them. Dr. Wheelo realizes that Goku is the most powerful person on the planet and so he tries to steal his body! The rest is for me to know and you to find out. Some funny parts in this movie are Gohan's musical number and the enormous size of Dr. Wheelo's brain! :)"
Great for die hard DBZ fans but not for beginners.

"I purchased DBZ The World's Strongest, since i am a die hard DBZ fan i found it very entertaining. As with many anime series it gives the viewer no idea whatsoever of where the characters came from, who they are , or what their doing. So if you know nothing of DBZ you will find it very confusing. Thanks to the Dragon Balls and his dedicated assistant Dr. Kochinthe evil Dr. Wheelo has been freed from his icy tomb. Now these mad scientists plot to take over the world with their fearsome biotechnology... There's just one hitch. Dr. Wheelo's body died, and now his brain is living in a humungous glass jar! Dr. Wheelo seeks the strongest, healthiest body in the world to be the new home for his magnificent brain, so Dr. Kochin and their bio-engineered warriors kidnap Piccolo, Master Roshi and Bulma trying to find the world's strongest fighter. Goku, Gohan and Krillin come to their friends' rescue, but Dr. Wheelo's henchmen are amazingly strong! To make matters worse, it seems that Dr. Whello not only wants to have Goku's body, but he already controls Piccolo! The action is great especially when Goku goes into the room with the spinning spike balls, however i found the tenacity of ChiChi, Goku's wife when it comes to Gohan to be too much. Her domineering attitude and posessiveness of Gohan really gets annoying after a while. If your just gettunbg started with Dbz stick to the episodes first then go onto the movies."
Practically the best of the 13 movies.

"Whoever the hell thinks this is the worst DBZ movie has a hell of a lot of problems. This has to be the best. Dead Zone was too short (but was very good), Tree of Might was a re-dub for video and really was bad with the acting (it was exhilerating to see Gohans wee-wee again,though,....... uh wait, never mind) but The World's Strongest takes the cake with some of the best scenes of fighting ever and possibly the best dub ever. When Goku (voiced by Peter Kelamis who is not that good as Goku, or at least not as good as the first Goku, Ian Corlett) screams "KAAAIIIOOOO-KENNNNNNNNN" you will literally feel chills down your spinal chord. The fight with Piccolo is one to remember (Dead Zone's was too short). The only movie that can beat this is possibly movie 13 or the 10th Anniversery Special. By the way, the worst movie is Movie 4."
The Worlds Strongest: The Second DBZ movie

"This movie was a very good piece of anime (if you don't mind violence). It takes place near Goku's home in a frigid mountain range. Where unbeknowst to our hero and his friends, a mad scientists lab is frozen within the mountains below their very feet. The movie has good action but lacks a bit in the story (if you're a true anime fan, you won't really care). I highly reccomend buying this movie (the subtitled version, the voices are better). I hope that this review helped you."

"There is nothing more to say about this movie than.....BRILLIANT! No matter what the situation is, Goku and company is there to stop it. After Master Roshi and Bulma were kidnapped by Dr. Wheelo (or how ever you spell his name), Goku and friends did not delay to save them. This has to be the best out of the 3 movies! Oh and if you were to see anything...you have to see the Jap.version. I think it's a lot better. You'll be amazed what Japan gets away with like in the Frieza saga, Frieza gets away with some curses oh and theres actually blood....thats right...BLOOD! Oh well. So as I was saying, this is the best one out of the 3 and don't forget about the 4th one coming out! Well...peace!"
