"After their fierce battle concluded on planet Earth, Goku finished off Cooler by firing a Kamehameha at him that launched him into the sun. Little did Goku know that Cooler had fused with a machine planet known as the Big Gete Star, which grants him the ability to make limitless copies of himself, so long as he can use other planets as an energy source. Cooler now sets his sights on New Namek, and it's now up to the Z Fighters to protect the Namekians and beat Cooler once and for all.
The Return of Cooler, a direct follow up to Cooler's Revenge, brings Frieza's brother back into the spotlight and marks the first appearance of Vegeta in a Dragonball Z movie. This time, Cooler has gone mechanical much like Frieza himself had done, only with more unique powers at his disposal. This film is a great successor to the DBZ movie franchise and truly builds up steam for the rest of them. Having Vegeta appear was a great addition as well, as his character is a sharp contrast to Goku's and gives this feature a more diverse cast. Watching the two Super Saiyans duke it out with millions of Metal Coolers is worth the price of admission in itself. The rest of the movie is well paced and does well to create a satisfying climax. The music is a large improvement over the last two, and is not as distracting. The English voices are what you would expect from FUNimation, so if you're a fan of the Japanese version, this will not convert you by any means.
If you're a Dragonball Z fan, I shouldn't need to tell you to check this one out. If you've seen Cooler's Revenge, you should watch this anyway to see how the showdown with Cooler finally ends. Definately worth a purchase."
A little better then the first Cooler movie

"The gang decideds to take a trip to the planet Namek little did they know the Nameks were all taken as prisoners by the evil brother of Frieza [yes thats right Cooler is back] when Goku was fighting cooler that fight was pretty good they DBZ was going back to the action that was very fast meanwhile Krillen, Gohan, & Piccolo were battling three big robots machines. Vegeta arrives later on to fight by Goku's side weather he like's it or not. It turn out their are over hundereds of cyborgs that looks like Cooler how did they survive well go see it."

"If you've ever seen a dragon ball z movie you know what they're like.Some of them for example like this one is excellent. Others however like movie #4 aren't to great.Okay, on to the DVD. This DVD is awesome it includes three versions. English Dub, Japanese version, and English dub dolby digital 5.1 surround sound version.As far as the movie,in my opinion this is the best dbz movie ever.It has a very interesting plot,exciting fight scenes and the fact that a hero with incredible strength and his will to never give up makes this movie one for any anime fan.OH yeah i almost forgot the DVD will have other extra features to.Overall I give this movie a 5 out of 5.

DBZ's most underrated feature!

"Yes, I must admit Cooler's Revenge was better. But this movie was still excellent, even if you haven't seen CR. The story is as follows: New Namek is assaulted by a giant mechanical orb called the Big Gete Star. Goku and friends arrive to stop the destruction of the planet, and ultimately have to face Cooler (Meta-Cooler), who has been resurrected as the alter-ego of the Gete Star's mainframe. I'd admit the whole thing of Cooler's resurrection is kinda cheesy, but nevertheless he's really badass, having this symbiotic relationship with a seemingly indestructible computer. The fight scenes are awesome, although I refuse to believe that Piccolo can survive having several barrels of machine gun fire directly into his head. I mean, he is a Z-Fighter, and therefore can take minimal damage by sheer will power, but even that scene I find over-the-top . . . then again, it is DBZ. Best of all is Vegeta's surprise appearance while Goku fights Meta-Cooler. Without Vegeta's assistance, Cooler would've on hands down--which reminds me: this one has one of the most unusual and inventive villain-defeats ever, although I won't spoil it for you. In short, this Dragonball Z feature is superb, and sadly underrated. Peace."
