Dragonball Z: Broly, the Legendary Super Saiyan

I’m spoiling this now, this is my favorite DBZ film period. No contest; no arguments. I was thrilled when Broly became canon, though I was able to see his DB: Super movie yet. But let’s take a look at this special specimen of a DBZ movie and find out why…

The South Galaxy is destroyed almost instantly to King Kai’s horror; the culprit is believed to be a Saiyan. Intrigued, Goku goes out to investigate, leaving Chi Chi enraged Goku bails out on a meeting that would have gotten Gohan into a fancy school. Meanwhile while Goku’s friends are at a picnic, a spaceship lands near them a aging, one eyed Saiyan named Paragus emerges and seeks Vegeta out, pledging with him to come lead the new Saiyan home-world. Vegeta, his ego stroked follows Paragus despite Trunks trying to talk sense to him. The world is broken and desolate with only the slaves feebly rebuilding and Paragus’s seemingly meek son Broly the only inhabitants until the gang show up. Something about Goku bothers Broly though, enrages him in fact. The next day the trap is sprung after a failed murder attempt by Broly. Paragus , once a servant of Vegeta’s father was betrayed when King Vegeta tried to murder his baby son, then him when he tried to defend the infant? Why so much fuss over a baby? Goku and Broly were born on the same day; Broly was born with a power level of 10,000 and a natural birth defect where being critically beaten doesn’t drastic increase his power but naturally skyrockets on it’s own. Broly unleashes his full might, the power of the Legendary Super Saiyan…

This the most brutal DBZ movie of the bunch. Broly is a cruel sadistic monster when Legendary is achieved and he enjoys torturing Goku, Gohan, Trunks, Vegeta and Piccolo for the sake of it and they are powerless to stop him. Seeing Vegeta shut down hit me, because the odds against Frieza, Cell, and Buu he was never frozen in fear as he was with Broly. The story is surprisingly good and the transformation into Legendary is my favorite of maybe my favorite of all DBZ. There is some good music including Pantera for the transformation which only made it more awesome. It’s a damn awesome movie that’s brutal and epic with a great villain an d definitely worth seeing. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
