Released on DVD in America twice. The initial release was dubbed by Pioneer with the Ocean Group, and was a very accurate dub. It was later reissued with a new, less-accurate dub by FUNimations in-house voice actors. While this version had a less accurate dub and fewer bonus features, it did feature a superior Japanese subtitled version, translated by Steven J. Simmons. See more »
Just before the credits start, we see a glass shard that contains Garlic JR. and he is banging on the shard, trying to get out (Garlic JR. eventually does escape the dead zone). See more »
The Cartoon Network version cuts out the begining where Piccolo is injured by the fighters. It also cuts Chi-Chi saying "What the hell do you want?" Also cut is the scene when Gohan is drunk and urinates on Krillin's head. The credit sequence includes new music. See more »
That's all I can really say about this film. It's DBZ...like Tree of Might and The World's Strongest, it really...doesn't fit into the timeline for the show at all, though it is supposedly placed just before the beginning of the TV series. The action is pretty nice in general. The plot has a nice enough base, with a good background establishing why these guys hate each other and all. Pretty good in general, there... The problem is...there's a lot of really weird stuff. I mean, really weird stuff. Like The World's Strongest, there's a really, really odd song in this one that could only have been created in a drug induced haze...disturbing is the fact that Gohan, while singing, is pretty much drugged out himself. Creepy. The villains are odd and rather comical...moreso than the usual DBZ type--this seems more like it was made as a Dragon Ball movie rather than a Dragon Ball Z movie. In general, its entertaining enough, but...just...strange.
