The movie is intriguing, but it cannot be consider one of those MUST WATCH ones.
In this, we find out where Goku is from, and we also see how Planet Vegeta was destroyed, but it can be better, and if it was longer, more details never hurt. The fight scenes are not even DBZ standards. Dragonball, maybe, but certainly not DBZ.
Bradock is one strange man, and I still can’t figure out whether to call him apathetic or too emotional unstable… or somewhere in the middle. Seriously, a man who doesn’t even care about when his son was born and immediately turn into one who worries too much? That is a no-no because while it may be suitable to humans, saiyans simply don’t look the type to just change from cold to caring.
Once again, it can be better. The coloring can be better, but at least the muscles are still accurate. The fight scenes can also be more action packed.
…I’m not sure what to say about this movie’s sound track. Maybe it’s because it lacks one? Too plain and boring. Don’t focus on it.
It’s not a great movie, but not too shabby either. So long as one doesn’t hate DBZ, give it a try and see the origin of Goku and a little on Vegeta as well. But for those that dislike it or believe DBZ should not even exist, DO. NOT. WATCH. IT!

I found this movie to be very interesting... not interesting enough to get a passing review... but interesting. What I found interesting about it was the plot ( for once ). I found it fun ( at the time of course ) to see Goku's 'origin' so as to speak. It was also neat to watch the life of his dad... who is a better character than Goku in my books. It also shows the destruction of Planet Vegeta and gives reasons for its destruction. I don't remember the series ever explaining that one.
Of course the interesting part of the movie stops right there. Everything else reeked of good ole Dragonball Z. The characters were horrible... sure Bardock is cooler then Goku but not much cooler... and add to that the return-not really retur... but you know what i mean- of two of the lamest villians ( Dodoria and Freeza ) and you don't get a recipe for goodness. The extent of the action was Freeza making a big energy ball destroying Planet Vegeta and Dodoria shooting laser beams out of its ( time for the guessing game: is it a he or a she? ) mouth.
Overall I thought it was a decent movie for DBZ standards... but for normal standards it got a 4 out of 10. Watch this if you like DBZ. Don't watch it if you don't like DBZ... cause if you don't like DBZ, you would not give a damn about Goku's father anyways.
