Two of the most powerful Dragon Ball Z releases remastered and restored on one action-packed DVD!
The History of Trunks: Goku is dead, victim of a deadly virus. Last of the Z Warriors to pass, the Super Saiyan's death has left the Earth far more vulnerable than ever before. With no one left to protect the planet, Androids 17 and 18 arrive to terrorize the great cities, plunging all into darkness where the inhabitants cower in fear. Is there no hope left in this apocalyptic horror? is this the end? Goku's son, Gohan, is now a man, and with an extraordinary young teenager named Trunks by his side, the two determine to face off against the threat. but as tragedy follows upon tragedy, the world around Trunks is fast collapsing and there seems no check to the evil of the Androids. This is the story of the future that never was.
Bardock: Father of Goku: Before there was Goku, there lived his father Bardock. A low-class Saiyan soldier under the comand of Frieza, Bardock is attacked by the last of an alien race they are employed in destroying. Healing on his home planet of Vegeta, Bardock discovers he has been blessed with the ability to see into the future. But the blessing soon becomes a curse, as the Saiyan finds himself haunted by visions: The tragic extermination of his own race and the destruction of their beloved planet, all the hands of Frieza. Bardock sets off on a nightmarish race with fate to avert the impending disaster. But as his strength fails and despair sets in, hope will be found in one last vision. This is the story of Bardock, the father of Goku.
This double feature is quite the requirement if you're a big Dragonball Z fan. Whether you're a Trunks fan or a Goku fan you'll enjoy both flicks included with this set. The History of Trunks starts off a little slow but works it's way up to when Trunks made his way back to the past. So it's a sort of, oming of age, tale almost. The Bardock flick explains many things. It explains how Goku's father was and how he changed his evil deeds to indeed stand up gaint the evil that had been commanding him and the saiyans for so long. I won't go into extravagant detail, but this is a must have!
i bought this movie history of trunks because of my desire to complete dragon ball series. i like it. the story of bardock is not much appreciated but since it involved the character of goku i sort of like it. the story of trunks is okey since it helped appreciate one of the dragon ball z series
History of Trunks is a good movie with linking to the t.v. series. It shows you what Future Trunks went through to get to the point he was at when he came to the past.
Bardock: Father of Goku is great is showing what happened to the saiyans on Planet Vegeta.
this is two specials in one. the very exciting backstory of future trunks and the slightly less so story of goku's father bardok. both are great with good storytelling and excellent action. if you are like me then you probably had these on vhs tape. well now it's time to upgrade. this is a wonderfully packaged set of two uncut specials. i highly recommend the purchase of this movie to any level of dbz fan.
well done, i love that dragon ball z told the history of theses two charters. It was nice to see what happened in detail the music however was a little lame, it kind of ruined it for me but then again i hate "nu-metal" but if you can get by that it was great. good job guys
this dvd was awesome as a huge dragonball z fan growing up i WAS SO HAPPY WHEN i found out that these two great dvds were coming out.
This mini-movie double feature is a great little extra viewing if you are one of the many who can't wait for the release of the Season 5 set in late May. It just gives a little history and background of the story we already know. A little on the short side but still an excellent addition to a DBZ collection. This is made even more of a collectible by its nice metal casing.
Great dvds to add to your dragonball z collection. You get to see a lil of where goku and vegeta where born and of gokus father. You also get to see what future trunks went thru in his future world.
I have always love DBZ, and it is nice to see where future trunks came from and to see exactly what happened to Goku's father. And to have them in onw set was a great idea.
