Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ Blu-Ray Review

Thanks to Madman we saw one of the anime events of the year, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ in glorious Blu-ray quality.

dbz-resurrection-f-1After defeating Majin Boo and facing the God of Destruction, Beerus, Goku and Vegeta are training harder than ever with Whis at Beerus’ place, far from Earth, without even suspecting that Freeza’s remaining followers have gathered the Dragon Balls to bring their master back to life. And he reawakens with only one goal: To take revenge against Goku, reason enough for him to train and master a new powerful transformation: The Golden Freeza.

Now, it’s up to Goku, Vegeta and the Z warriors to save Earth once again.

Almost a year ago, the announcement of a new Dragon Ball Z film and a new season called DBZ super took fans to Kamizama’s heaven, unleashing Dragon Ball mania once again around the globe.

While DBZ Super has been criticised for the quality of its drawings, which have clearly been simplified in order to facilitate the transition from old school to digital 2D/3D animation, Resurrection ‘F’ stands out for the right reasons. The quality of the drawings and the colour animation in general are superb.

dbz-resurrection-f-2The plot idea is simply bullet-proof: bring back an updated fan-favourite bad guy like Freeza and make him face his Saiyan nemesis once again. As expected, the end result is an action-packed hour and a half of pure DBZ glory, with more fights than ever and some iconic characters like Master Roshi returning to his roots as the strongest human in the world.

Vegeta fans will be disappointed that the beloved Saiyan warrior again has his moment of glory stolen at the very last second.

The Blu-Ray includes some good extra features, including interviews with the English voice cast, trailers and a fantastic inside look at the world premiere of the film in the US, with red carpet interviews, the introduction of the film with the legendary Goku Japanese voice  actress doing her best bits and a much more.

Overall, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ is a perfect follow-up for Battle of the Gods. It has even more action than the previous films and adds something fresh to the saga by including small twists at the end. A must have!
