Critics' reviews
  • "A popular Japanese manga series gets a pleasing if paint-by-numbers live-action makeover in Dragonball Evolution, which half-heartedly tries to keep the faith for its pubescent male fanbase. (...) Potential appeal to the unacquainted, however, is minimal."
  • "From a script by Ben Ramsey that takes itself exactly as seriously as it should — which is to say, not at all — 'Dragonball' has been perfectly designed to blow the mind of a 10-year-old boy. (...) Second-rate special effects double the pleasure of these goofball shenanigans"
