Honestly, it is better than I was expecting, but I was expecting it to be terrible.. I just didn't want to say anything since you all were so excited. It was kinda funny at times when it wasn't supposed to be..
Is Veku like Gogeta backwards or something.. lol
I thought the trailer was actually quite good, the only thing I didn't like was the English accents, I thought I read somewhere they were going to use the Anime's voices.....I guess not, apart from that, a little bit more work on improving on the special effects and it would of been awesome.
apart from some parts(well casting mostly) the trailer was quite entertainig the special effects were pretty good for low budget effects and the fighting seemed nice if only they had the budget of DBE and a better cast
I enjoyed it. I wasn't expecting a Hollywood budget film, so maybe I wasn't let down because of it. The only person that I didn't really like was Tien. He seemed not very believable. Which sucks, because he is one of my favorites. But I think overall it will be a decent video.
"There is no teacher but the enemy. No one but the enemy will tell you what the enemy is going to do. No one but the enemy will ever teach you how to destroy and conquer. Only the enemy shows you where you are weak. Only the enemy tells you where he is strong. And the rules of the game are what you can do to him and what you can stop him from doing to you." -Mazer Rackham - Ender's Game Orson Scott Card
Tbh, if they pull of decent reviews, it wouldn't surprise me if the producers / directors at the very least get offered a budget to make a sequel
Problem is, after the saiyan saga, when they get to namek, were really talking special effects, and it would be costly, so its either going to be a one hit wonder, or a start to a great real action franchise, but it will need serious backing
lol that was bad, I don't know if DBZ could ever translate well over to live action.
Well I guess Hancock with Will Smith, he basically has all the powers goku has, minus the beams.
Never seen a good beam, even in the street fighter movie it was lame.
Not a single saibaman was seen that day.
I enjoyed it. For something self funded I reckon they did an awesome job. You can tell they loved DBZ and they wanted to stay as true to the anime as they could. Hats off to them, makes me a bit jealous that I have neither the skills nor the money to make one myself haha.
As a question though, if you were to remake your own DBZ Saiyan Saga movie and had unlimited budget, you would you cast?
For me it would be:
Piccolo - Samuel L. Jackson (I have had it with these mutherfuckin saiyans on this mutherfuckin planet)
Nappa - Stone Cold Steve Austin
Goku - Probably that guy who plays Jin Kazama in the Tekken movie whose name escapes me
That's all I can think of for now, I'll add more as they come to me.
"Fan made" means "made by amateurs" in my book, so I guess I just don't expect these things to blow my mind. I'll admit Absolon and the live action film aren't going to pull in anyone but other fans, but they are vastly better than I originally anticipated.

Thought Trunks was stronger than him as well or am I wrong?

Also maybe Bils has some gimmick that Goku needs to overcome, idk.
