[Movie Review] Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero

 [Movie Review] Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero


Magenta, CEO of Red Pharmaceuticals, wants to resurrect the Red Ribbon Army, which his father Commander Red led and was eventually destroyed by Goku. Magenta recruited Dr. Gero's surviving grandson Dr. Hedo, a superhero-obsessed mad scientist recently released from prison for grave robbing. Despite his reservations, Hedo accepts the offer after Magenta convinces him that Capsule Corp and the Z-Fighters are evil organisations. While Goku and Vegeta are training under Whis on Beerus' planet alongside Broly, the world is threatened by the Red Ribbon Army, and the only ones available to defend the earth are the remaining Z fighters, particularly Gohan, Picollo, and others.


Will they be able to repel the Red Ribbon Army's impending attack? Let's kamehameha through the theatre and see the movie right now!


"Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero" has made extensive use of 3D animation as the primary medium for story presentation. The animation is very much similar to that of "Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse"! Although "Dragon Ball Super: Broly" partially incorporated similar technology, the film this time has pushed it even further by making it fully animated in 3D! The action choreography appears more fluid with this animation style, with a variety of angles in capturing! While some fans may dislike this novel approach, I believe it is a welcome change, especially for younger fans who prefer 3D animation!

The film also brought back a lot of memories for DBZ fans who grew up during the DBZ era! Since his birth, Gohan has been regarded as one of the strongest Z fighters. However, following the Cell saga, he was demoted to the backbench, which is a travesty! Fortunately, this film has brought Son Gohan back into the spotlight, which will delight old fans! Furthermore, the film has done Picollo justice by giving him the power boost that he so richly deserves. The film also shows a different side of Picollo, which is a lot of fun to watch. Picollo, in reality, acts as a much more caring surrogate father for Gohan and his family. After seeing this film, many people will fall back in love with Picollo.


Aside from that, there's a lot of slapstick humour in this show. I remembered Dragon Ball having some funny moments in their show, but this movie has a lot of such humour that surprised me. As a result, the tone of the show is actually quite lighthearted, even though it becomes more serious in the final act!


However, the film has flaws of its own. I found the plot to be quite predictable, with some inconsistency in the pacing. Furthermore, while it's refreshing to see the animation in a different style, the fight scenes aren't as memorable as those seen in "Dragon Ball Super: Broly"! There are also fewer fights in this show than in "Dragon Ball Super: Broly"!


Overall, it's still a good time for long-time Dragon Ball fans because it provides a lot of fanservice to old fans by providing flashbacks and re-illustrating some memorable moments from the originals. In fact, the audience clapped and cheered for Gohan and Picollo in some scenes! Last but not least, there is a post-credit scene that will delight fans of Goku and Vegeta's rivalry! So keep an eye out for the post-credit scene!
