Didn't Like Hollywood's Dragon Ball Movie? Well, Neither Did Dragon Ball's Creator
In an interview with Asahi (via 2ch), Toriyama talked about the ill-fated Dragon Ball movie, Dragonball Evolution.
"At the time of the live-action Hollywood version, the script didn't really capture the world or the characteristics (of Dragon Ball)", Toriyama told Asahi. "What's more, because I thought the content was bland and not so interesting, I cautioned them and gave them ideas for changes."
"Nevertheless," Toriyama continued, "they had this odd confidence and didn't really comply with my suggestions. And just as I thought, the result was a movie I cannot call Dragon Ball."
You could call it a hot mess. No, you couldn't even call it that.
