Dragonball Z: Broly, the Legendary Super Saiyan was one the Z series most popular features but wasn’t considered canon officially. With Super overtaking the divisive GT, the door opened to justify this by retelling the story of the mad Saiyan as well as add a new layer to the story and character unseen before…
The fall of the Saiyans was upon them as Frieza was about to lay waste to the Saiyan populace when a child was born with an exceptional power level, even more than the prodigal Prince Vegeta. The king was furious, damning the child to death by sending him to a hellish planet. His father Paragus stranded himself to save the boy, raising him to seek revenge against Vegeta, seemingly the last Bastille of the old regime. Broly, trained to be a monster, is actually a kind soul who never got to blossom with a keen fighting ability and a frightening power he can’t control. Without achieving Super Saiyan, he easily matches the power of Goku and Vegeta at God level but it’s Frieza, remembering what drove Goku to snap, decides to snap Broly and the 3 are faced with something nearly unstoppable but can they defeat him before his power leads the power of Gogeta to destroy him?
This very well maybe the best DBZ movie yet and I’m really surprised how well Broly was reinvented. His character has a lot of depth and is surprisingly tragic as well as extremely badass. The fights are top notch and are shown in some really awesome, fresh ways on top of the vibrant colors and fast action. The new backstory I’m mostly good with but I have to say Goku’s part reminded me too much of Superman’s origin which is my only real gripe along with not seeing Beerus or Whise facing off against Legendary SS. In the end, it’s a hell of a movie I’d definitely recommend. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
