Critic Reviews for Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Gods

  • Thankfully, the Japanese continue to make traditional hand-drawn animation, digitized in color and partially- enhanced with CG. With Battle of Gods, it's a seamless blend, and entertains as any CG-animated film.

  • "Battle of Gods" delivers not only the familiar look but also the slapstick comedy, character interaction and over-the-top martial arts fights that "Dragon Ball" fans want and expect.

  • The fight scenes in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods are tremendous. Each punch and kick has a great sense of power behind it, and the way the camera swerves and glides in new 3D angles makes each battle exhilarating.

  • Obviously the action is flawless, lending itself impeccably to the modern animation style, and it certainly doesn't hurt that the film is canon.

  • For all its little hiccups, it was a perfect return to the franchise. In the nearly two decades since DBZ ended, animation had improved drastically, leading to flawless-looking fight sequences.

  • Even if you enjoy this bizarre deconstruction of one of the world's most popular anime, you still have to sit through a great deal of nonsense to get there.
