Dragon Ball Super: Broly (Japanese: ドラゴンボールスーパー ブロリー, Hepburn: Doragon Bōru Sūpā: Burorī) is a 2018 Japanese anime martial arts fantasy adventure film,[8][9] directed by Tatsuya Nagamine and written by Dragon Ball series creator Akira Toriyama. It is a canonical reimagining of Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan, the twentieth Dragon Ball feature film overall, the third film produced with Toriyama's direct involvement, and the first to carry the Dragon Ball Super branding. Set after the events of the "Universe Survival" saga, the film follows Goku and Vegeta as they encounter a powerful Saiyan named Broly. The film also chronicles the history of the Saiyans and the background story of these three Saiyans with different destinies connected to the turbulent period of their race, and later culminating in a massive battle between them.[10]

Broly represents the first appearance of a reworked iteration of Broly in the main Dragon Ball continuity, following the initial version's appearances in the films Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan (1993), Broly – Second Coming (1994), and Bio-Broly (1994).The film was well-received by critics especially for its animation and Shintani's art style, which was deemed an improvement over the franchise's usual art style drawn by Tadayoshi Yamamuro. The film was a box office success, grossing over $124 million worldwide and becoming the highest-grossing Dragon Ball film ever. It also became the highest-grossing anime film of 2018, the fourth highest-grossing anime in the United States and Canada, and the fifteenth highest-grossing anime film of all time.[11]

A sequel titled Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero was released in June 11, 2022, in Japan and worldwide on August 19, 2022, to comparable critical and commercial success.[12][13][14]

Plot[edit]

In the year of Age 732, after being informed by the galactic warlord King Cold that his race will now serve his son Lord Frieza, King Vegeta finds a commoner infant named Broly within a nursery only the elite are accepted in. Learning Broly's power level greatly excels that of his son Prince Vegeta, whom he believes would liberate their people and conquer the universe, King Vegeta exiles Broly to the distant planetoid Vampa in hopes the infant would die before becoming a potential threat to the Saiyans. Broly's father Paragus attempted to rescue his son, only for the ship he stole to get damaged beyond repair on entry to Vampa. Stuck on Vampa, he raises his son to exact revenge on King Vegeta.

Five years later, a low-class Saiyan warrior named Bardock grows concerned about Frieza's reasons for calling the Saiyans to Planet Vegeta and confines his suspicions to Gine while realizing Frieza's intentions to exterminate their race out of fear of the Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan God legends. They send their infant son, Kakarot, to Earth some time before Frieza commences the genocide of the Saiyan race. Besides Broly, Paragus, and Kakarot, the other survivors of Saiyans include Kakarot's brother Raditz, Vegeta and his comrade Nappa, and Vegeta's brother.[15][16]

In the year of Age 780, forty-three years later, after the Tournament of Power, Kakarot, now named Goku, trains with Vegeta around a deserted island before Bulma is informed by Trunks that the Dragon Radar and six of the seven magical Dragon Balls in her possession were stolen by low-class Frieza Force soldiers. Bulma leaves Bulla with Beerus while accompanying Goku, Vegeta, and Whis travel to an arctic region to find the seventh Dragon Ball before Frieza can retrieve it. Meanwhile, Broly and Paragus are rescued from Vampa by Cheelai and Lemo, two low-class Frieza Force soldiers on a recruitment mission. The two are brought to Frieza and are enlisted to defeat Goku and Vegeta, Cheelai stealing the remote Paragus uses to keep Broly submissive before the two groups cross paths on Earth.

Broly fights Super Saiyan Vegeta with his increasing power and adaptive fighting abilities allowing him to seemingly best the Saiyan Prince in his Super Saiyan God form. Goku challenges Broly in his base form, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan Blue forms and manages to gain the advantage despite Broly gaining more strength while Paragus fears the worst upon learning he lost the means to snap Broly out from his berserker state. However, remembering the circumstances that allowed Goku to first acquire his Super Saiyan form, Frieza covertly kills Paragus to awaken Broly's latent Super Saiyan powers. The fully mindless Broly overwhelms both Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan Blue forms before being directed to attack Frieza while Goku uses his instantaneous movement technique to get him and Vegeta to Piccolo. The two proceed to teach Vegeta the Fusion Dance technique as he and Goku eventually succeed in forming Gogeta, who arrives to the battlefield as Broly attacks Whis after defeating Golden Frieza. Gogeta dominates the fight before an infuriated Broly powers up even further into his Super Saiyan Full Power form, countering by assuming Super Saiyan Blue with their violent clash breaking through multiple dimensions before arriving back on Earth.

Gogeta defeats Broly using Meteor Explosion and nearly kills him with an Ultimate Kamehameha but Cheelai and Lemo, who had formed a friendship with Broly, summon the eternal dragon Shenron with the Dragon Balls and use their wish to transport Broly safely back to Vampa. The two then escape with Gogeta preventing their ship from being destroyed by Frieza, who decides to spare them as they can make Broly a more stable asset to his military force. Some time after, Goku arrives on Vampa to provide Cheelai and Lemo with supplies while expressing his intent to spar with Broly and help teach him control his power. Formally introducing himself before leaving, Goku tells Broly to call him Kakarot.[15][16][17]

The film is produced by Toei Animation. It was originally announced under the tentative title of Dragon Ball Super - The Movie on December 17, 2017, during Jump Festa with the general theme being "The Strongest Warrior Race in the Universe, The Saiyans".[22] A poster was released on March 13, 2018, 11 days before the airing of the final episode of Dragon Ball Super, featuring an entirely new traditional animation design by Toei animator Naohiro Shintani,[23][24][25] as opposed to veteran Dragon Ball character designer Tadayoshi Yamamuro. One week later, the first trailer for the film was released publicly through Toei Animation featuring the all–new character designs and an enigmatic new villain.[26] Akira Toriyama wrote the story, screenplay and designed the characters, Tatsuya Nagamine is film director, Naohiro Shintani is animation director, Kazuo Ogura is serving as art director, Rumiko Nagai as color designer, Naotake Oota is in charge of special effects, and Kai Makino is the CG director.[27] The film includes elements of the 2014 "Dragon Ball −(Minus): The Departure of the Fated Child" story written by Toriyama.[28]

On July 9, 2018, the film's title was revealed to be Dragon Ball Super: Broly, revealing the unknown villain to be the titular character Broly who first appeared in the 1993 film Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan. Toriyama stated the character and his origin is reworked, but with his classic image in mind.[10] With this film portrayal, the character would become part of the Dragon Ball Super official continuity.[29][30][31][32] Other new characters introduced in the film are Goku's mother Gine,[33] Kikono, Berryblue, Cheelai, and Lemo serving in the Frieza's army,[34] and the Saiyan Beets.[35]

Critical response[edit]

On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 82% based on 56 reviews, with an average rating of 6.9/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Dragon Ball Super: Broly may seem like colorful chaos to newcomers, but for longtime fans, it represents this long-running franchise near its action-packed apogee."[149] On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating to reviews, the film has a weighted average score of 59 out of 100 based on 6 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[150] According to Pia's first-day satisfaction survey of Japanese audiences, it ranked as No 1. with an audience approval rating of 92.7%,[151] while American audiences gave the film five out of five stars on PostTrak, including a 91% positive score and 78% "definite recommend."[128]

It received critical acclaim from the initial critical reviews by Anime News Network, IGN, and Comic Book praising the story, animation style, humour, as well Broly for making the film a "meaningful character piece about a broken man haunted by his abuse-filled past—twisted into something he was never destined to become".[15][16][152] In a 5 out of 5 stars review by Stuff, it was considered as the "best Dragon Ball film" with the only prominent critical point that "there are certain scenes where it transitions between 2D animation and 3D ... which can disrupt the flow of it all".[153] Ollie Barder writing for Forbes, stated that the "only real criticism at this point is that after this solid narrative starting setup, we have a pretty hefty time jump to where we are post-Dragon Ball Super. Considering the depth and breadth of the story between these points of time, it would have been nice to have a bit more exposition to help with the pacing. However, that said, this is already a long film and we all know that we have a massive fight to look forward to".[154] Allegra Frank of Polygon concluded that the film "gets the fundamentals of Dragon Ball extremely right, no matter where you're coming in from", with "no grand statements to be made in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, and more amusement than anxiety".[155]
