** The writer, Ben Ramsey, ''finally'' admitted in an open letter to DragonBall fans that it is an OldShame of his. So much so that what little of a film career he had was utterly destroyed by the work (as his IMDB page demonstrates).

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** The choice of Japanese singer Music/AyumiHamasaki for the theme song was one of the best decisions the movie makers made.
** Music/BrianTyler's musical score also gets a lot of praise.

** Music/BrianTyler's musical score also gets a lot of praise.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: 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).

* {{Narm}}: The line "The first rule is... there are no rules." is absolutely laughable for some because it didn't convey any sense on what is said.

* NeverLiveItDown: The movie itself earned a reputation by ''Dragon Ball'' fans and generally, the anime and manga fandom as a terrible Hollywood live-action adaption of a very popular anime franchise. Because of this, the fandom would remain skeptic on Hollywood's attempt on adapting manga and anime into the big screen. The reception of ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow'' might have changed this view but perhaps not enough.

* SoBadItsGood: Most of the reactions were negative, even from those who never saw the animated series. That said, it can be [[SnarkBait enjoyable]]. A small minority think it [[SoOkayItsAverage was a decent film in its own right]], to the point it could be considered an okay film had it not had the ''Dragon Ball'' name. And as stated above, alot of people in Asia love the film.

** See what Goku's head collided with when grandpa Gohan knocked him off. Sure, he was falling pretty fast, but melons shouldn't be THAT soft, should they? Also in the previous scene, one of Goku's kicks didn't even touch his granpda. [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Force_kick Force Kick]] in effect? The 2 consecutive failures can be seen in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRlMwC3Q-Do one video]].

** There's also that one scene with Goku and Piccolo in a Ki blast struggle... that ends with Goku shooting himself towards Piccolo with no propulsion whatsoever and in the same Kamehameha firing pose.

* BileFascination: The film's bad word-of-mouth is precisely why people choose to watch it out of reluctance.

** James Marsters as Piccolo also gets praise often, especially as, according to an interview, [[OneOfUs he was also a fan of the source material]].

*** In Goku's case, in the series, he was known for having a rather hard head.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Ramsey admitted in a 2016 apology letter to have gone into the film "as a businessman" and "not a fan" of DragonBall (whether this means he was a fan and just didn't care, or he was not a fan, period, isn't entirely clear). There are also conflicting sources which mention that Wong, the film's director, made several changes to the script which actually made it ''more'' like the comic, meaning the original script was even ''[[UpToEleven less]]'' like DB than the final product.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Though, at least ''one'' person cared. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZKD5r_5GQ0 According to the script-writer]], his original script was a much more faithful adaptation of the original, complete with Pilaf and his gang, Oolong, Pu'ar, the Nimbus, etc. Unfortunately, the script was changed a ''lot'' once it was out of his hands. To the point where he felt the need to issue the above-linked apology for the final product.
** It turns out this probably isn't true at all - Ramsey admitted in a 2016 apology letter to have gone into the film "as a businessman" and "not a fan" of DragonBall (whether this means he was a fan and just didn't care, or he was not a fan, period, isn't entirely clear).
