Dragonball Evolution

Fans of the long-running anime series "Dragonball" ... may still want to avoid this live-action adaptation. The story has been dumbed down significantly to fit in the film's short runtime. Justin Chatwin (The Invisible) stars a Goku, a marital arts prodigy given a magical "Dragonball" on his 18th birthday. Now he's got to stop the evil Lord Piccolo (James Marsters of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fame) from assembling all the magical Dragonballs and using them to destroy the Earth. Juvenile humor, stereotypical characters and cheap special effects ensure this one's best aimed at first-graders. 84 minutes PG.
