It is a fan fiction/fan made short film of the events that take place during the earlier episodes of the DBZ anime series.
I would love to hear your guy's thoughts on the video... I do know it blows DBZ Evolution out of the water big time. I just wish that they spent a
little more time and money on the CG effects but nonetheless I think it is really great for a low budget youtube short.
Well, it was a great attempt. Production and design are excellent IMO. Its the actual fighting style and choreography I have a problem with. They need
to speed those attacks up dramatically to be legit DBZ. And some more variation. Get some real fighters from the local MMA gyms to put on a much nicer
I love where they are going with it though. If only they had access to wires man. Cell looks badass, but he should talk. Also not a fan of the entire
thing narrated in 3rd person. I much prefer actual dialogue between characters. So they will need a script writer as well to improve. These guys have
any crowdfunding going on?? I think they have the right vision for a respectable full feature production of DBZ short.
So we just need a script writer for some juicy dialogue, a handful of MMA or jujitsu guys to volunteer or take some payment for some nice fight scenes
and we are good. I think the CG is tops! But we need special effects as well with some improved stuntwork.
I'm only a few minutes in but it's looking quite good so far. It's ashame hollywood can't make a DBZ movie like this, the only mainstream live-action
DBZ movie I know about was a total pile of crap. These fan films are much better because they actually know what the fans want to see. I recently came
across another fan made live-action DBZ short film on youtube a few months ago and it's pretty awesome. You've probably already seen it but I'll post
it anyway for those who haven't:
If you've watched that latest superman film it is the closest thing to dragon Ball z you can get. If they could get the director to do it it will be
one of the greatest movies ever. It has all the elements and the fighting is as close to dbz you can get.
this is true and was my exact thought when I first watched the movie. Second in line was the battle between Agent Smith and Neo in Matrix: Revolutions
. That was where my benchmark was until Man of Steel was released.

Exactly. Very true indeed.
But everything about superman is dragon Ball z.
Pod sent to earth, family member threatening to destroy the earth if he doesn't comply, the actual fight scenes are perfect replicas of dbz fighting
style with power level gains. Best example is when the woman attacks 4 people within a second...slick and perfect for the next dbz film. I'm worried
the director won't do it cos it is very similar methology. Oh and plus riding animals in an advanced civilisation (which actually annoyed me but
perfect for dbz)
you know I had only looked at the parallels in the fighting styles, but now that you mention it there are many shared characteristics. Dead world and
so on. The story of Superman is quite old though, perhaps it imparted an influence on the original creators of dragon ball?? The similarities are too
close to ignore now.
Just watched it...amazing location cgi, good references to the general story line but no faith in the actors, no script, ruined cell and super saiyan
look, poor fighting. Dissapointing for the amount of effort put in. Couldn't even be arsed to make the characters look like the originals. It's a
Not bad for a live action DBZ. I hated DBZ evolution seemed cheesy. Being a massive fan of the series from childhood I would watch more of these if
they made em. I am so happy with Dragon Ball Super picking up events after Z. I was not a big fan of GT and I am happy they are reworking the series
