Mini Review Of Dragon Ball Z Fan Film: Fall Of Men
Written By Jay Snook
This Fan Film ‘Dragon Ball Z: The Fall of Men’ is just amazing as It brings many of the characters to life in a new adventure with a familiar threat.
Dragon ball Z is a long running, popular anime. It has had many different TV shows, OVA’s and live action adaptations. The DBZ fandom has a diverse array of fans, and some of those fans got together and decided to make a really cool live action fan-film short that focuses on an various aspect of the series.
The short film begins with these simple words “The world isn’t like it’s supposed to be. Something happened along the way”. With Trunk saying these words he reminds himself of the arrival of the DBZ villian, CELL, the friends he has lost, and his training for combat. Even though he knows he doesn’t stand a chance, he will try to make the difference and bring back hope to a lost world
This fan film is the brain-child of Yohan Farue and Vianney Grifon, whom are two fans that wanted to adapt Dragon Ball Z into a film, while implementing a dramatic and realistic approach. The Fall of Men is set in a different future and is inspired by the characters in the DBZ saga and this untold story makes sure to pay tribute to Akira Toriyama’s universe.
In my opinion, this film is amazing. It has a great cast and a clever plot. There are a number of slow moments, but what it lacks in packing, it makes up for with some amazing special effects, and a fight scene that will take your breath away. Anyone who enjoys Dragon Ball Z needs to see this; these people knew what they were doing and made something really special!
