    "Battle of Gods" delivers not only the familiar look but also the slapstick comedy, character interaction and over-the-top martial arts fights that "Dragon Ball" fans want and expect.

    Battle of Gods is probably the most anticipated movie from the Dragon Ball franchise, is one a very good movie with the great comedy we lovedBattle of Gods is probably the most anticipated movie from the Dragon Ball franchise, is one a very good movie with the great comedy we loved from the original DragonBall and the DragonBall Z series, and the action packed fights. I really liked the movie, but i think the major flaws were that the fight scenes were very short, and the fact that adding a new saiyan form didn't really fit in with the rest of the episode like GT.
    I know some people argue that GT isn't part of the original DBZ, but in GT Goku (or any other saiyan) could have transform into Super Saiyan God to fight Baby or Shenron. I think they could have added more detail into the New characters Beerus/Bills and Whis. I think the transformation wasn't the best design, i would have liked a form like Super Saiyan 4 with fur like SSJ4 but in gold color, and Gold Super Saiyan 4 hair style with the electricity like SSJ 2 and 3 and a Gold aura. overall i think it needed just a tiny bit more detail, but very good movie. I was very happy seeing both the Japanese and English Dubbed

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Ok this movie gets points, just because it's DBZ, and I'm a huge nerd.

    The final battle is also kinda cool.

    I will say this though, the way they got Goku to become the Super Saiyan God?

    That is some convoluted **** right there.

    Seriously!? The FETUS counts!?!?

    Yeeeaaaahhhh.....ok...

    If you check out the wikipedia article on this movie you can actually see that this movie came out last year. Thought that was somethingIf you check out the wikipedia article on this movie you can actually see that this movie came out last year. Thought that was something interesting to point out.

    The movie was done well from an anime perspective and was exactly what I was hoping for. I would have given this a 4-5 if it looked just like the TV show but you can tell that they did polish it up and do a better job on this movie. The story was interesting but the ending was almost downright terrible. Me and the guy in front of me watching this movie were just disappointed at how it ended. The humor made me laugh and it did poke some fun at itself along the way.

    Anyone who loved watching the TV show will definitely like this movie.

    Battle of Gods is a grossly overrated Dragon Ball Movie. It's passable but no more. The action scenes are good, the comedy is also OKBattle of Gods is a grossly overrated Dragon Ball Movie. It's passable but no more. The action scenes are good, the comedy is also OK (especially Vegeta singing) but the fact that they introduce a powerful new transformation, two powerful new characters (both of which Vegeta and King Kai knew of but never thought to worry about since Beerus seems to be someone they would worry about the most) and a retcon of GT.

    If this is how Dragon Ball is going to go then I think Mr. Toriyama should have handed over control to someone else by now.
