Dragonball Z: Resurrection F (Blu-Ray) Review
Like I said: goofy.
And that's it, really. After the initial half hour of plot setup, Resurrection F turns into one prolonged series of fight scenes with the occasional humorous quip. That's both a good and bad thing.
But all of the above aside, I found Resurrection F lacking on the story front. It plays almost beat-for-beat like a rehash of many of the older, out-of-continuity DBZ films - in particular, Cooler's Revenge. The villain - who is related to/is Freeza - shows up on Earth with his minions, the minions get dispatched by the Z warriors, the villain kicks the Z warriors' asses for a while before Goku finally gives them their just desserts. The abrupt ending and lack of substantial plot leading up to it only further fuel the comparison.
While it's visually delicious and engaging on the action side, Resurrection F fails to impress in the story department. It's kind of a popcorn film; fun while it lasts, but otherwise unremarkable. It's not a classic the way The Dead Zone or the Broly movies are, but there's still fun to be had. If nothing else, the new electric blue Super Saiyan God hair looking pretty sweet, and it's always nice to hear Sean Schemmel scream so hard when powering up that you can practically hear his lungs filing divorce proceedings.
Dragonball Z: Resurrection F is available on Blu-Ray and DVD now.
