Is there any force in existence Goku and his friends can’t overcome? After DragonBall Z: Buu Saga (Kid Buu) came to an end, Goku has the opportunity to meet Beerus, the God of Destruction. Goku begs Beerus for the chance to spar against him, only to have Beerus one shot him easily in his Super Saiyan 3 form. Beerus comes to Earth with his assistant/trainer Whise and for a time is content at Bulma’s birthday party until his temper goes awry and he threatens to destroy the world. With no one strong enough to big him down, desperate times call for a ritual to create a Super Saiyan God with the total power of all the Saiyans combined into Goku. Can this new form be enough to hold Beerus at bay?
I was definitely surprised by this movie in more ways than one. First, I like that it feels like a actual feature film developing the characters and is at full length. Beerus and Whise are fun characters and Beerus is a awesome badass. I love how this movie takes a different kind of look at Goku’s character and his flaws. It is a little bit of a slow build but the climax is well worth it. In the end, it’s a great continuation of the show and a great start to Dragonball Super. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
