    ...It's not even out yet and already its starting to suck. Not to be racist or anything but damn..the casting for Goku is horrible. They chose a WHITE guy to play Goku. WTF? I know that Goku wasn't technically Asian in the series but still..they made him LOOK asian. The rest were okay I guess..Bulma, Master Roshi. They were okay. I'm sorry to say but this movie is going to suck big time. I have this feeling it's going to be like DOA. OH god..it's going to ruin Dragonball's legacy. DAMNIT! Don't get me started with that so called "gi" Justin's wearing. Is it me or does that outfit NOT look at ALL like Goku's?..I've been a big Dragonball fan my whole life and now this has to come up and mess it all up. I'm very disappointed in James Wong. I mean I would've chosen Jon Foo to play Goku instead of Justin. Not that I hate Justin, it's just that I don't see him fit to play Goku's role. Jon Foo has martial arts skills to play such a role. Sorry guys..this movie I don't think will be any good. We'll see soon though. Let's all pray together.

    oh, sorry, I forgot to mention, the Japanese word for turtle is spelled "kame" in english, it seems I, like a
    dumbass had forgotten to add the english spelling of the
    main character in the previous article. This is just in case you didn't already know the spelling of turtle.

    Hey, I'm new to this kind of stuff so be gentle..lol.
    This is my first comment on movieweb and I don't comment a lot on things so don't get mad. I just wanted to reply to marcusx. To that asian symbol, I know you can make it if your computer has Windows Vista, but that's only to my knowledge. You can change the language to Japaneses on your computer and type in the english version of the Japanese word and push space and it will turn into whatever you typed, like if you typed in the english version of the Japanese word for turtle you WOULD get &#20096. For example you can type mosura(mothra) or gojira(godzilla)and you will get &#12514&#12473&#12521&#12288&#65327&#65330&#12288&#12468&#12472&#12521 that's all I have to do. I hope this helped marcusx.
    BTW, I think this movie might be alright.

    and the symbol is on his gi. plus he has another suit that i heard is close to exact as it looks in the anime.

    btw, how the f*ck did you make that lil asian symbol tho? &#20096 i can copy and paste it, but how did you do that?

    Zombie, he's playing younger Goku not Dragonballz style, you ever watch Dragonball? I guess he's supposed to be playing Goku at the end of DB. He's tall and stuff but not as big.

  11. Heath_Ledger_is_gay

    Yes, I agree with sakai23, where in the f*ck is the orange gi, and the &#20096 symbol?

    Anyone know if they're doing the whole movie in green screen? I hope not. To much of that George Lucas nonsense can make you queasy after a while.

    Wow I just got one thing to say about the whole movie just wait until it comes out it not like you make the damn fan chill out and fuss about it after it come out.

  24. Tomp1210

    dude everyones thinkin it, youve gone too far, just chill. then new pics for the movie are ok considering the light and stuff, plus the new angle of his hair is a relief, coz it means they havent strayed from the image completely. Why did Joker change his name...again?

  26. Marcusx

    he creates fake profiles everyday and we caught him doing it and hes trying to get us to believe its not him so once we do, he can pop out and be like "gotcha f*ggs!" im not having it. the real issue here is that within the time it took me to type this explanation out, he prolly has created at least 3 more profiles! oh, and apparently him and civil are brothers and they have sex.

    7 years agoby @marcusxFlag

  27. Tomp1210

    stop ripping the movie without watching it, its fair enough to hope that its good, but to hope that its bad is quite pathetic. Joker youll probably get banned if youkeep that sh*t up. just sayin...what the hell's goin on anyway?

  28. Bragg

    Probably. Pretty funny. He's got one friend (Civil Cowboy) and I think they got something for each other. Your brother? Must be incest then. Haha
