* ShockingSwerve: Sure, we understand that Goku is not of this Earth, but TheReveal that Goku is Ozaru comes directly out of nowhere. After Piccolo's rein ended, how can Goku still be alive and who sent him into space only to send him back to Earth? And even then, there is no explanation for why Piccolo went to such lengths to have him killed if he was so critical to his plans.

** 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.

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

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

* SnarkBait: Fans of ''Dragon Ball'' just '''love''' trashing this movie. Just mentioning the film in a ''Dragon Ball'' forum post is bound to start a flame war. Even the people who worked on the English dubs of the ''Dragon Ball'' anime love to make fun of this movie at fan conventions. Critic and ''Dragon Ball'' fan Creator/ChrisStuckmann has called this his least favorite movie.

* ClicheStorm: There's an eclipse, an apocalyptic showdown, ancient sealed powers, an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent hero, loads of stock phrases, a ChosenOne prophecy, a generic ActionGirl 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.

** Perhaps a better fit for this trope is Creator/JustinChatwin 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.
* VindicatedByHistory: Downplayed. 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'', some viewers are more forgiving of his role in this movie. Some is the correct answer.
