User Reviews: I watched the dubbed version of this movie first, so I’ll begin with it. First of all I would like to state that the music in the American version was simply atrocious and even a bit insulting for DBZ. The dub voices are slightly better than the ones from Ocean Group but still aren’t very good. At least none of them are as annoying as most of the Ocean voices were.

The thing I most liked about the original version was the music. Superb, as always. The Japanese voices are really cool (also as always), although Goku’s voice is quite annoying and too feminine. I think they should have replaced Masako Nozawa with a male actor for DBZ.

Anyway, on to the plot – certainly not as nice as the ones of the previous movies, but still better than the plots of most animes and since it’s DBZ it’s pretty good. But they used an almost totally different definition for the term "Super Namekian" than they did in the series.

I recommend the previous three movies more than this one – not only because they have better plots, also because the dubbed versions have the original music score in them, because of which I’m willing to put up with the annoying voices.
