Can we have a whole post as to why you hate Broly? I personally love him but I'd also love to hear your look on him
SIT DOWN BOYS AND GIRLS AND NON BINARY PALS BECAUSE ITS TIME FOR A TRIP!!
Okay so let’s break this down into some categories for you
What character is there? Honestly the dude is in the title of the damn movie and his most memorable feature is that he screams the name Kakarot repeatedly, trashes the other z warriors in, admittedly, a brutal way, most of his dialogue is just guttural screaming and grunting (props to Vic Mignong though.) and basically is just a less green MUCH less interesting hulk.
His power, while immense, has no real interest to it as it he is just all muscle and power levels (aka some of the worst things in the franchise) and while you can enjoy those things and there’s nothing wrong with that, it doesn’t make an interesting character, much less an interesting villain.
FUCK this movie. Seriously fuck it.
It’s plot, while starting off mildly interesting, drags on far too long and is honestly not interesting enough to keep you riveted.
Here’s a little summary for those who haven’t seen it.
This movie takes place roughly about the week given to prepare for the Cell Games. The movie opens up with a party (for which I can’t remember why there’s a party but it’s there)
Then HOLY FUCK THE SAIYANS ARE BACK WITH SOME JACKASS NAMED PARAGAS DECLARING VEGETA AS THEIR RIGHTFUL KING!!!!
Vegeta then just ditches his newfound home and “friends” and his CHILD (actually that’s pretty on character for him. Wait for that to be destroyed later.) and goes to this New Vegeta. Roshi, Krillin, oolong, Krillin, Gohan, and future Trunks tag along as well. Also piccolo shows up later so that’s a thing. Anyways the planet is a ploy to get Vegeta on the planet because it’s about to be destroyed by a meteor so Paragas can have some weird watered down version of revenge on his father for trying to kill him and his Gary Stue baby Broly. Then Goku shows up and Broly’s rage gets uncontrollable because OG LOOK IS KAKAROT I REMEMBER HIM FROM WHEN HE WAS A FUCKIN BABY AND HE CRIED(but I’ll get to that later)
So broly opens up a can of whoop ass upon the Z warriors and as this is happening Vegeta gets COMPLETELY OUT OF CHARACTER SAYING THEY STAND NO CHANCE AND HE STARTS ACTING VISIBLY PETRIFIED WITH FEAR AND GODDAMNIT FUCK THIS MOVIE.
Seriously though after that Vegeta eventually joins and Goku saves the day as always yippie
Honestly this movie wouldn’t be awful if it didn’t drag on and it didn’t look so ugly.
The color schemes of New Vegeta are dark and murky and just not very appealing. Not to mention the utter gutting of Vegeta’s character. Even against Freeza Vegeta still was willing to fight to the death (granted he thought he was a Super Saiyan but still he fought.)
Long story short it’s just an ugly, poorly paced movie
right let’s get this out of the way
Kakarot and Broly were both next to each other as babies and Kakarot kept Broly up with his crying.
That’s it. That’s his motivation. You could argue that this could have had a strenuous mental effect on Broly to cause him to hate Goku…BUT HE COULDN’T BECAUSE THEY WERE GODDAMN BABIES SO HE COULDNT POSSIBLY HAVE RECOGNIZED A BABY WHEN A) Couldn’t have retained the memory of his name much less a face to match the name because babies aren’t known for their brilliant memories. B.) HE HASNT SEEN THE MAN IN AT LEAST 30 OR 20 YEARS
So in short: His motivation ranges from weak to laughable and honestly has probably the worst motivation than any character I have seen in any movie or show.
Actually Broly’s design is one of the most appealing things about him. Well until he goes LGSS of course.
His gold jewelry and passive eyes and…loincloth??? Or robes I’m not sure. Either way it’s a very good character design for his base form. And his Super Saiyan design is honestly very interesting. Whether the blue tinge comes from the tiara controlling his rage or just from his Legendary Super Saiyan status, it definitely is a very interesting design choice and a pretty decent one at that. Plus it gives us an idea of what super saiyans with long hair like that look like!
But then there’s Legendary Super Saiyan Broly…
His hair gets shorter for some reason, and an ugly shade of green yellow that honestly looks like snot.
His muscles get grotesquely huge and hulky and he becomes a goddamn giant….like that’s so dumb. And his pupils where did those go? Are they hiding with Vegeta’s character in this movie? Honestly it’s just so bad.
His energy attacks and and radar like aura is actually pretty cool and I actually enjoy the way they look. But other than that, his character design is boring and dumb.
To surmise: Broly is a character who’s base design is pleasing to look at, but gets really dumb later on. His motivation is straight up pathetic and his Gary Stue power is just annoying. The movie itself, while enjoyable to some, isn’t a good movie and probably is one of the worst movies in the franchise( YES I AM INCLUDING THE GT MOVIE AND I HATE GT THO NOT AS MUCH AS BROLY) not to mention its murky colors are just boring and ugly. He’s just violence for violence’s sake and while that’s not always bad it’s been done before and better.
Let me state this:
There is nothing wrong in liking this movie and liking Broly.
These are my personal opinions and do not prevent you from liking the movie or character.
So there’s my in depth analysis of why I despise Broly and his movie.
If you want me to give any more movie analysis please don’t be afraid to ask! I’d love to do more
