** The introduction of the Dragonball locator contrives to have Bulma say the acronym DBE has a nice ring to it. You just have to shake your head at the arrogance of this little moment, like they were absolutely sure this would be some big hip thing among the fans.

* VindicatedByHistory: This movie was not a good first impression of actor Creator/JustinChatwin. Due to a well received guest spot as a superhero on ''Series/DoctorWho'' and his role on ''Series/ShamelessUS'', viewers are more forgiving of his role in this movie.

* ClicheStorm: There's an eclipse, an apocalyptic showdown, ancient sealed powers, an ordinary high school student, loads of stock phrases, a Chosen One prophecy, a generic tough girl in addition to a tragically dead parent figure. But eclipse, ordinary high school student, generic tough girl and prophecy aside, this [[MisBlamed isn't the fault of the adaptation]]; just about all of the rest is present in the original anime and manga. Then again, the anime didn't attempt to squeeze "all of the rest" in at once.

** Justin Chatwin's face whenever looking dramatic just makes it look like he's taking a painful bowel movement.

** Master Roshi's house in the middle of a huge metropolis may bring to mind Carl's house from ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'', released a year later.

** It is difficult to take the dramatic scenes seriously because of Justin Chatwin's horrible underacting.

** General agreement among fans is that one of the best qualities of the film (other than Brian Tyler's epic score) is the delightfully hamtastic Roshi (as played by Chow Yun-Fat).
** [[ActionGirl Chi Chi]] too, especially after Jamie Chung received RetroactiveRecognition in other works.
** James Marsters as Piccolo also gets praise often, especially as, according to an interview, [[OneOfUs he was also a fan of the source material]]. [[VideoGame/DragonballXenoverse2 Ten years later,]] [[PromotedFanboy he would play another character for the franchise: Zamasu.]]

* JustHereForGodzilla:
** Many people in Latin America only saw the movie because Creator/MarioCastaneda and Creator/CarlosSegundo were reprising their roles as Goku and Piccolo respectively.
** Similarly, almost everyone from the Brazilian Portuguese dub (except for Roshi) returned for the movie.



** Perhaps a better fit for this trope is Justin Chatwin as Goku. Holding back other considerations of how his character's motivation are changed from Anime to Film, his performance of Goku as an [[IJustWantToBeNormal insecure teen]] is pretty good, even adding some character development as he becomes self-confident to the point of gaining HeroicWillpower.
