  • Aaron Hillis

    Far more entertaining than it deserves to be, unless you're a 10-year-old boy, in which case it's only the greatest movie ever made.

  • Nathan Lee

    May or may not appeal to fans of the Japanese fantasy franchise it is based on, but aficionados of apocalyptic teenybopper kung fu extravaganzas are in for a real treat.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joel Brown

    Nearly all the actors seem to be having a good time, and the action moves so fast that you don't mind when something nuts happens.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Adam Markovitz

    Marvel at the fact that something this trippy made it to our local multiplex.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Russell Edwards

    A popular Japanese manga series gets a pleasing if paint-by-numbers live-action makeover in Dragonball Evolution, which half-heartedly tries to keep the faith for its pubescent male fanbase.

    Variety Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    The film is crammed with treats for old-school "Dragonball" fans, from the inclusion of all these characters (who don't actually do much) to the moment when spiky-haired Goku dons his orange gi. For everyone else, this amounts to another seen-it-before, probably-willing-to-see-it-again distraction.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Bottom line: costumed Goku and Chi Chi cosplayers may argue the finer points of this adaptation, but it is fairly dazzling it its own overextended, futurist-teenpulp fashion, and Chow makes a vastly more entertaining Roshi than he did a King.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Glenn Whipp

    Director James Wong ("Final Destination") and writer Ben Ramsey are utterly blasé in their approach to the series' mythology and structure, cobbling together an 84-minute movie that seems to exist only to rile up fanboys. On that count -- and that count alone -- Dragonball Evolution triumphs.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jeremy Wheeler

    Just know there's a whole lot more great stuff out there than just what Evolution has in store for you -- namely, the anime that it was based on.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    Completely lacking in visual, narrative or stylistic coherence, the film also suffers from cheap-looking visual effects and poorly staged and edited action sequences that will not exactly please the fanboys.
