    Oki a lot of people seem to understand me wrong, it's not like i thought it was that horrible but there were a few simple little things that couldve made it a lot better for me atleast.

    Piccolo was to dark green and his antennae were a bit weird to me.
    Krillin has a nose (dont know if you can fix this with Special Effects but lil details like that put me off)
    Nappa has no mustache (not a real man without one, he may have one but i didnt see it)
    Actors, i know they cast Asians because theyre more disciplined in Martial Arts but some of them just didnt work for me some did though like Gohan and Yamcha were ok.
    Special Effects, didnt feel like they had any depth (to me), Scouters why make them energy fields they were obviously a solid thing in DBZ, Doesnt feel like they use any force firing them just looks like theyre flailing their arms mostly on the Goku vs Vegeta fight, the Destructo disc looked like a pizza tbh and shouldnt it have serrated edges?
    And to a minor degree the saiyan armor i know they already upgraded it and i agree it looks a lot better then the old one from the raditz trailer but still didnt look quite right and its the lil details that do it for me.

    So id give it a 7/10 id watch it if they made a full saga but wouldnt just quite like DBZ although i dont think any live action film will ever do it for me.

    Well translating DBZ to Live action is something that really can't be done without Avatar like budgets... and even then it'd be like 50% CGI...

That says something about how strong Gohan is and Goku recognized that I think. If he could only get Gohan to believe in himself for one second cell would be crushed.
    I like that one line where Goku asks Gohan if he could follow their combat when he was fighting Cell, and Gohan says yeah he can, and either Vegeta or Piccolo (or both) were shocked because they couldn't follow it.

He replaces Super Saiyan Gohan who showed up in the second trailer for Battle of Gods. As many of you have mentioned, after Gohan’s training with Old Kai in Dragon Ball Z’s in the Fusion Saga (part of the Buu Arc), there was no need for Gohan to go Super Saiyan as his dormant powers were already achieved. Scriptwriter Yusuke Watanabe and the team over at Toei Animation realized this and made sure the correct version was in the movie. You can see a comparison below of Ultimate Gohan (left, now in the movie) and Super Saiyan Gohan from the second trailer (right, no longer in the movie)."
    It still doesn't make sense. Super Saiyan is only a power increase. A multiplicative of their current power. Why couldn't he go "mystic" which is his full potential power, and then go Super Saiyan (2), and multiply that?

    As I understand it, Mystic pretty much replaces any transformations Gohan has, or could have access to. When he powers up to full, he simply has no drawbacks (such as SSJ3's high energy consuption), but all of the benefits. He can't transform because he's already transformed into his maximum power, it just doesn't show physically. Also, and this is just speculation on my part, but it seems to me that Mystic gives Gohan access to his maximum power available; at the time of the Buu saga, I assume that his Mystic was at the level of a basic SSJ3 (which would still be superior to Goku because of Gohan's higher potential). If he kept training, eventually he'd reach the SSJ3 limit in his Mystic "transformation". That's just how I see the Mystic form though, as far as I know there is no official word on it. But as I see it, it allows full access to one's current "maximum" power without the need of a physical transformation and removing the drawbacks it might have, but you can't stack Super Saiyan on top of it because Mystic is pretty much replacing it.

    Not really. It isn't really just a power increase. It is more tapping into reserves of power. Gohan had his unlocked by Old Kai. So now he no longer needs the SSJ forms because it is always on tap, so to speak.

    Know what is funny? When future trunks recaps his training with vegeta in the time chamber.

    Vegeta says: I train alone...

    Then he walks away and goes and powers up somewhere else.



    Didn't know you trained by powering up. :P

    Chi Chi must be a saiyan than, the ox king was never suprised by gokus origins... because chi chi was found the same way!

    At 0:18 I see normal Super Saiyan Vegeta, not SS3.
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    It isn't "Goku just knows." Gohan actually turned ssj2 for a split second while they were training, that's when he knew. Goku saw for that brief moment that Gohan was actually capable of surpassing even his own limitations.

    Also as far as that other guy asking why goku always leaves baddies for other people - it's for two reasons. The first being that Goku is just a nice person, too nice. He wanted to give Trunks/Goten a chance to fight him and be the heroes. Second, he understands that he won't be around forever and that new foes will show up, so he wanted the children to be the future protectors. That's why he entrusted Gohan with killing Cell, that's why he didn't beat buu in SSJ3 (when he stated he actually could in a later episode), and if memory serves me right... he actually could've killed Kid Buu too but he wanted to give Vegeta a chance to fight.

    Not quite. He asked Vegeta to fight so that Goku could gather enough energy to finally kill Buu. Unfortunately, this was the first time he had used the SS3 form in his living body, and he was unable to maintain it. He lost the transformation, so then they switched plans to using the Spirit Bomb.
