Anime Movie Review- Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F

01 DBZ Resurrection F

Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z were almost destroyed by the so-called sequel series Dragon Ball GT. However, after years of ignoring the fan voices, Toei Animation finally relented and brought back the series creator Akira Toriyama. He gave us the film Battle of Gods and now the hit sequel Resurrection F (or Revival of F in Japan).

As Frieza (Chris Ayres) is tortured by happy stuffed animals in Otherworld, his empire is crumbling under the leadership of General Sorbet (Jeremy Schwartz). He and another subordinate travel to Earth and, with the help of Emperor Pilaf (Chuck Huber) and his minions, wish Frieza back to life. Once Frieza is fully healed, he decides that he needs to train to fight Goku (Sean Schemmel), so he can match the Saiyan’s strength.

Six months pass and Goku and Vegeta (Christopher R. Sabat) are training with powerful trainer Whis (Ian Sinclair) on the destroyer god Beerus’ (Jason Douglas) planet. However, Jaco (Todd Haberkorn) the Galactic Patrolman shows up to warn Bulma that Frieza is on his way. After gathering Tien (John Burgmeier), Krillin (Sonny Strait), Master Roshi (Mike McFarland), Piccolo (Christopher R. Sabat), and Gohan (Kyle Hebert) to fight Frieza’s army. Though Gohan can go Super Saiyan, due to lack of training he cannot fight Frieza. They hold off Frieza’s army until Goku and Vegeta arrive to fight the evil tyrant, leading to an epic showdown.

This is the best Dragon Ball film ever made by Toei Animation and its American counterpart Funimation. It’s got action, adventure, Martial Arts, and lots of great dialogue. I was disappointed that Chiaotzu, Yumcha, Goten, and Trunks did not make an appearance and Android 18 just had a cameo. I still enjoyed seeing the old school look and feel of the iconic anime series based on the popular manga.

  1. […] I had high hopes for this movie. Studio Bones had released some early images for Chimera and Mummy, not to mention an awesome trailer. With that in mind, I have to admit, I was not let down. Studio Bones delivered on the incredible animation and Funimation delivered yet again with the dubbing. They did an excellent job. I am also pleased that this movie, like its predecessor Two Heroes, is canon to the show, taking place during season four. Some anime do not consider the films a part of the official canon, such as Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F. […]

  2. […] Kind-hearted high school student Tohru Honda (Laura Bailey) is forced to move out of her grandfather’s house because of renovations. Since her parents have passed away she chooses to live in a tent in a nearby forest instead of burdening her friends Arisa (Elizabeth Maxwell) and Saki (Jad Saxton). After passing by a house, she realizes her classmate Yuki (Eric Vale), a boy popular with the ladies who call him ‘Prince Yuki,’ lives in the vicinity with his family member and popular author Shigure (John Burgmeier).
