Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' (Japanese: ドラゴンボールZ 復活の) is a 2015 Japanese animated science fantasy action film, the nineteenth movie based on the Dragon Ball series, and the fifteenth to carry the Dragon Ball Z branding, released theatrically on April 18. It is the first Japanese film to be screened in IMAX 3D and receive screenings at 4DX theaters.


After the God of Destruction Beerus decided to not destroy Earth, peace has returned to the planet. However, Sorbet and Tagoma, two of Frieza's former servants, decide to revive their leader using the Dragon Balls. After he is successfully returned to life, Frieza decides to return to Earth to exact his revenge against the Saiyans who brought about his downfall.

Why it Rocks[]

  1. The animation is phenomenal with its fast-paced, clean, and rough style that integrates 2D and 3D into the wonderfully-produced backgrounds.
  2. While Battle of Gods was an amazingly fun light-hearted adventure in the style of the original Dragon Ball, this film was a badass action-packed movie that harkened back to the days of Dragon Ball Z.
  3. Vegeta finally gets his time to really shine (there are no stupid bingo scenes in this one!) - it is straight up brawls in that over-the-top fashion we all know and love delivered by the Prince of all Saiyans.
  4. Tons of fast-paced, brilliantly choreographed action sequences only Dragon Ball could pull off.
  5. The film definitely opens up a lot of doors for the Dragon Ball universe, especially for Super.
  6. Sean Schemmel does a wonderful job as Son Goku, screaming his lungs out and going right back into character flawlessly.
  7. It perfects the mix of action and humor and creates one heck of a ride.
  8. The weaker characters finally get their moments in the spotlight and it is so good to see characters such as Roshi and Tien throw down.
  9. The story-line isn't too complicated and is easy enough to swallow without any analyzing.

Bad Qualities[]

  1. Toei Animation kept the film at the standard 28 fps (which is really bad for an animated film) and would occasionally seem laggy, and choppy. 
  2. During his battle with Frieza, Goku can be unlikeable at times when it comes to taking his fight with him for too long and didn't let Vegeta take turns until he was badly injured.
