Broly Returns for Vengeance 

By Jesus Garcia 

Earlier this month, the creator of the dragon ball franchise released a movie called Dragon Ball Super:Broly. 

Dragon Ball Super Broly was made in order to provide some back story for the main characters Goku, Vegeta, Freza, and the Saiyan race. This story was created by Akira Toriyama and the director of the movie was Tatsuya Nagamine. This movie was released on January 16, in The United States, however it was released in Japan on December 14, 2018. 

Dragon Ball’s Super Broly, is an animated /fantasy film, which continues after the animated show Dragon Ball Super, which began airing on July 5, 2015 and ended on March 25, 2018. The film shows the after math of the destruction of the home of the Saiyans, planet Vegeta, and the scatter of the few Saiyans among the universe, destined for different fates. Two Saiyans found a home on Earth while a third was raised with a burning desire for vengeance and developed an unbelievable power. The time for vengeance had come and their fates collide bringing with it a destructive force. 

The film was great, but it also had some controversy to it like the taste of music, and the fact that the backstory of the movie felt rushed. To those who have no knowledge of the recent dragon ball franchise are going to be confused when they see the Saiyans transformations. Speaking of transformations, I don’t like how Vegeta was given the god transformation with no build up to him reaching that form, but I still enjoyed the movie and I really liked its animation. Overall it was a great experience and I do recommend watching it. 

This Dragon ball movie had an 8.5/10 IMDb rating, and 82% on rotten tomatoes.  As of January 23, Dragon Ball Super: Broly has grossed $24.5 million in the United States and Canada, and $66.6 million in other territories (including $31.6 million in Japan), for a total worldwide gross of $91.1 million.
