Your resident badass from Dragon Ball Z, Broly, excels in this movie as I favor the second film that introduces him over the first. After Broly was defeated by Goku in the first movie, he managed to escape into a Sayin Space pod, only to crash on earth and be encased in a sheet of Ice. Now Broly has come back for some violence, and Goten, Trunks, and Gohan are the unfortunate ones who stumble accross him. This movie, like Bojack Unbound, dousn’t have very much combat, mostly Broly just slapping Trunks but not trying to kill him. My favorite dbz moment ever is also in this movie. A triple kamehameha on Broly to send him to the sun and blow him up. Pretty sweet anime action here.

It is really refreshing to see such a badass villian that seems impossible to tackle. When the fighters are fighting & they feel there is no hope, someone else usually comes to the aid. This makes for good edge of your seat action. However, Even though this film ends with a decent fight scene, most of it is drawn out and pointless. Sure Trunks and Goten can be amusing, but this is too much.
This film had little to no plot development and it really hurt the entire movie. This is brought on by the meandering nature that comes across from the positioning of the central characters of Kid Trunks; Goten; and Videl, who are looking for the Dragon Balls. It is obvious from the film that Broly’s ultra-super saiyan form is more powerful than Gohan as a super saiyan, which is as it should be. This makes a lot of the guess-work of who will win a fight pointless. Yes this is exactly what a DBZ fan would like to see. The ending to the first Broly movie was just horrible with a capital H. I mean at least in this one they finish him off descently rather than just ending it with a punch to the gut.
The fight between Broly and Gohan was cool and the ending reminded me much of the Cell Games, but the fact that most of the movie is more comedic and revolves around Goten and Trunks, and Broly this time around is no longer the ruthless monster from the first, now he is an utterly insane beast who can only say the name Kakarot. Overall this one is good, but not the best. It’s pretty laid back, but it’s still worth buying, and for those of you curious ones, this blu-ray release is uncut, so it will have Japanese dialogue.
