I'm okay with movies being something new or different than their other incarnations. It's fine that this film doesn't follow the same exact story as DB/DBZ. We've lived in a world where the MCU and Marvel Comics are something different in many ways, but each still good for what it is. Right? So there's nothing wrong with that. Dragonball Evolution is just horrible as a film, primarily because of the writing. Everything feels haphazardly written and rushed. It wasn't good enough for them just tell a simple story. It was trying to tell 15 different, underdeveloped stories, and make it all fit within a single film and within time constraints. The actors were (mostly) fine. They did the best with what they were given. The graphics were fine. The set design was meh, but I've seen good films with less believable sets. The writing is what did it in for me. That's the only thing I can say, really. Just bad. Ugh.
