Critic Reviews of "Dragonball Evolution"Village VoiceApril 13, 2009
Evolution is far more entertaining than it deserves to be, unless you're a 10-year-old boy, in which case it's only the greatest movie ever made.Globe and MailApril 13, 2009
There are a few entertaining fight scenes. But there is also uneven CGI, bad dialogue and a host of clichéd moments that make Dragonball Evolution just another disappointing matinee movie.AV ClubApril 13, 2009
The film is crammed with treats for old-school Dragonball fans. For everyone else, this amounts to another seen-it-before, probably-willing-to-see-it-again distraction, a passable collection of 'splosions and special effects for a slow film weekend.Entertainment WeeklyApril 13, 2009
Fans of the best-selling Dragonball comics (and cartoons, and videogames...) might have a shot at untangling the knotty dream-logic that strangles Dragonball: Evolution's live-action adaptation.Boston GlobeApril 13, 2009
The giddy, anything-goes spirit of Japanese manga comics and Hong Kong martial arts flicks animates Dragonball Evolution. Not enough to make it a good movie, mind you, but enough so you won't hate yourself if you sit through it with the kids.Boxoffice MagazineApril 10, 2009
It's hard to muster up fear for the end of the civilization when the whole production looks like an hour of network filler.ChrisStuckmann.comFebruary 03, 2016
Dragonball: Evolution is my least-favorite film of all time. I hate it with every fiber of my being. If you were ever curious about the show Dragon Ball or the manga... please, avoid this cinematic disaster at all costs.QuickflixOctober 21, 2014
There are fewer depressing sights than Chow Yun-Fat performing stilted wire-fu in a Hawaiian shirt.CinefantastiqueSeptember 24, 2009
This film offers further proof, as if any were needed, that Western filmmakers cannot do justice to their Eastern counterparts when it comes to retooling anime and/or Fant-Asia for Occidental consumption.MoviedexAugust 02, 2009
More concerned with recruiting the testosterone troubled boys of today than it is rewarding fans of yesteryear.Cinema CrazedApril 30, 2009
As far as 2009 flops will go, [this] could have been much worse to sit through...Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)April 18, 2009
A contender for the worst movie of the year was released in April.
