This will probably either be really good or really bad.
Justin Chatwin, who portrayed Tom Cruise's son in Steven Spielberg's WAR OF THE WORLDS, takes on the lead role of the heroic Goku
James Marsters, best known for his role as the charismatic vampire Spike on the seminal fantasy series ?Buffy the Vampire Slayer? and ?Angel,? will portray the principal antagonist, Piccolo. Other major roles are currently being cast.

I vote really bad - bad enough to drag down Marsters' ability.

Yeah, that's kind of how I was thinking. I just can't see a live action Dragonball movie being any good.

At least Chi Chi and Bulma are both hot.

Hmmm, Stephen Chow is producing it, so that shows some promise.

The script should be easy. Bad guy shows up, good guys power-up for an hour and a half and then a cool 10 minute fight. Fin.

This movie looks like it will probably be really bad. There's a trailer now.

Yes. That trailer makes the movie look like ass. I was holding out some hope for it, but wtf? Bulma with guns, Piccolo's make up looks like a vampire from Buffy, and who the hell is this Mai character? And where's Krillin?

Bulma with guns
Well she does shoot Goku in the head with a pistol when they first meet. Fortunately he is bullet proof.
Piccolo's make up looks like a vampire from Buffy
I guess the make-up designer is a Buffy fan, and he really only ever looked cool when he was playing Spike.
who the hell is this Mai character?
She is one of Emperor Pilaf's henchmen. The other one being a talking fox.
And where's Krillin?
I guess they couldn't find any Kung fu midgets.
OoOoOoOo what does this button do.

Oh, that's right. But the trailer made it look like she was with the good guys.

This looks like a turd. It's going to be atrocious. Simply abyssmal. Batman and Robin may turn out better than this movie, and that thing is a fucking abomination.
