Rating: 13+ (not as intense as DB-Z, but fast-paced nonetheless)
Anime Code: H

Every die-hard anime fan knows the Dragonball story.  Goku, a lovable kid with a monkey tail and incredible strength and agility and all his friends.  The Dragonball movies act seperately from the TV series.  In Mystical Adventure, Goku and his friends travel to a distant land to compete in a martial arts tournament.  On the way, Goku makes new friends, calls the dragon, and saves the day again.  Mystical Adventure also marks the first appearance of Tienshinhan and Chiao-Tzu into the original Dragon ball storyline.

Review: It seems like all the Dragonball movies follow the same format.  Truthfully, I'm okay with that.  The intense fight scenes more than make up for the shallow plot.  I recommend this for all you action fans.

Action Level: 5/5
It's Dragonball, need I say more?

Romance Level: 1/5
Yamcha and Bulma don't act like boyfriend and girlfriend.  The only romantic stuff I seen was between Chiao-Tzu and his wife (and Chiao-Tzu and Tien but we'll stay away from that for now.)

Comedy Level: 3/5
Goku's comments are always good for a laugh.

Adult Level: 1/5
The General's "Kill You" is as adult as you're going to get.  Yes, there is a death, but he comes back to life so it's okay.

Drama Level: 2/5
When Upa's father falls at the hands of General Zao, Upa cries and that's pretty dramatic.  It got very dramatic towards the end.

Overall Level: 4/5
Dragonball fans definitely watch this.
