DBZ Movie 2, "The Worlds Strongest"

The Summary

In this movie, Goku has to test his strength against the evil Dr. Wheelo to preserve his body and save his friends, and the world of course.

The movie begins with Dr. Wheelo's assistant searching for Master Roshi,... who Dr. Wheelo indicates is the worlds strongest fighter. After capturing him, They test him against some of Dr. Wheelo's fighters. Though Roshi puts up a good fight, he is unable to beat them, after all, he is just an old guy.

Amazingly, though Bulma, Dr. Wheelo learns that though Roshi was the strongest fighter on the planet 50 years ago, that title now belongs to a fellow named Goku (Goku, who is this Goku?).

So guess what happens?

Yep, Dr. Wheelo has to find a way to bring Goku to him so that he can take his body. With the combination of Goku's body and Dr. Wheelo's brain, he would become the most powerful being in the universe.

So guess what happens?

Well, I don't want to give away the ending for those who haven't seen it, but the person who saves the day might surprise you.

The Review

You know what, I'm not a big fan of the DBZ Movies, and do you want to know why? Because they're really not part of DBZ at all. The movies are Akira's version of Marvel's "What If" comics. In respect to the true story line, nothing in the DBZ Movies actually happen. That's just great, we get to see what if, and in this one I was challenged to pay attention, at least the Tree of Might was fairly interesting. I haven't seen this movie in a while, and if you asked me, I probably wouldn't watch it again. I would rather watch something more along the lines of X or some serious cinematic anime if its going to take anywhere close to two hours of my time.

For a DBZ episode, the animation sucks when you compare it to the animation of the later Cell Saga episodes and after, which is fairly amusing because you generally thing you would spend more time and money on the animation quality. However, compared to the animation at the time the movie came out, it was pretty good.

However, it was fairly fluid, but again nothing that I was really impressed with.

Eh,... again there were some pretty good scenes, and then again it was all lackluster by comparison. They could have done so much more with it.

Not even worth mentioning.

For the time this came out, it was pretty good. The monologue of Dr. Wheelo being trapped in his cybernetic machine, preserving nothing but his brain while his assistant helped him was pretty interesting, and the fact that he could sense Gohan's power levels was also portrayed very well, "No, don't make him angry!"

However, once again. With a title like, "The World's Strongest" SOOOOOO Much more could have been done with this. I mean, how about some SUPER SAIYAN ACTION!

Voice Acting:
Well, its the same guys from the CN Eps, so this was actually pretty good. I and the rest of the DBZN are in agreement that the voice actor for Goku should win some kind of an award for best possible translation in terms of voice quality.

Plot, what plot? This movie actually never happened in the DBZ universe. It is merely a figment of your imagination!

The idea of this movie was good, but a little more development, character rendering, and agreement with the Manga and TV episodes would have dome this Movie wonders. Too Bad.

(Sighs) I'm picky, I know. That's why I get to review all of these lovely movies and episodes, good and bad. This one was just slightly below par, and the purpose seemed more like, "Lets get a few more dollars out of our loyal fans" than, "Lets make a truly epic movie whose glory shall be praised in songs of yore for eons!"
