What the movie's about:
Dragonball: Evolution is based on the popular Japanese manga created by Akira Toriyama, whose work spawned best selling graphic novels, video games and a phenomenally successful television series.

The live action adventure centers on a team of warriors, each of whom possesses special abilities. Together, they protect Earth from a force bent on dominating the Universe and controlling the mystical objects from which the film takes its name.

What the critics have to say:
"Dragonball Evolution doesn't take itself too seriously, but avoids campiness."
 - Russell Edwards, Variety

"Making no effort to be original, exciting, witty or even vaguely plausible, it may pass the time as sparkly fodder for 12-year-old boys with plenty of sugar in their bloodstream."
- David Jenkins, Time Out

"Run a mile in any direction from Dragonball Evolution."
- Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

The young warrior Son Goku sets out on a quest, racing against time and the vengeful King Piccolo, to collect a set of seven magical orbs that will grant their wielder unlimited power.
