If you haven't seen Dragonball, you most likely have no intention of doing so. Moreover, you probably haven't even heard of it. It's based on the popular anime series and something was lost in the translation to the big screen.
Aside from it's obvious flaws (terrible acting, abysmal writing, and horrific special effects), the filmmakers did absolutely nothing to include the uninitiated. I had never seen an episode of the cartoon and while I could follow the story being told in this movie, there was little character development and several unexplained plot points. They relied too heavily on the viewers knowledge of the show, alienating those of us who had none.
Don't even rent this, don't watch it on cable, and certainly don't go to the theatre.
