Product Description

Two classic Dragon Ball Z movies remastered!

Cooler's Revenge: Saving the universe can be tiring business! So after their big battle with Frieza on Namek, Goku, Gohan, Krillin, and Oolong decide to take a little camping trip for some rest and relaxation back on Earth. But their peaceful weekend is soon interrupted by a menacing force. Frieza has a brother – Cooler! And with his powerful Armored Squadron, he has come to Earth seeking revenge. Cooler will not rest until the man who destroyed his brother is vanquished, even if that means blowing up the entire planet! Goku was able to tap into his hidden powers and transform into a Super Saiyan once before. The question is, now that the Earth is threatened by Frieza’s older (and stronger) brother – can he do it again?

The Return of Cooler: New Namek is besieged by an enormous evil entity – the Big Gete Star – a ‘living planet’ of metal that sustains itself by devouring entire worlds. Fearing for the existence of his people, Dende, the new guardian of Earth, turns to Goku and his friends for help. The Z-Fighters spring into action in an effort to save the new Namekian home world from this invading menace, but their fight won’t be easy! The Big Gete Star has an army of powerful Cyclopean Guards at its disposal, and what’s more, at the heart of this metal giant lurks an old enemy… Cooler!

The fifth and sixth Dragon Ball Z features Cooler's Revenge (Tobikkiri no Saikyou tai Saikyou--"Fantastic Ultimate Strength vs. Ultimate Strength," 1991) and The Return of Cooler (Gekitotsu!! 100 Oku Pawaa no Senshi-Tachi--"Crash!! The 10 Billion-Power Fighters," 1992) rank among the most popular titles in the long-running series. Goku, Gohan, Krillin, and Oolong set off on a camping trip, but their outing turns into a battle royal when they're attacked by the minions of Cooler. The older and nastier brother of Frieza, whom Goku destroyed in Season #3 of the broadcast series, Cooler is out for vengeance. Piccolo helps Gohan fight off the sidekicks, but the centerpiece of the film is the duel between Super-Saiyan Goku and Cooler, who looks like a purple version of Frieza. A mighty Kamehameha blast disintegrates Cooler, but a metallic version of him appears when the planet of New Namek is attacked by the monstrous space ship Big Gete Star. Dende asks Goku for help, and the Z Fighters answer the call. They're met by a squadron of giant robots, whom Gohan, Krillin, and Piccolo take out. Cooler makes the mistake of trying to drain the Saiyan life energy from Goku and Vegeta (who's arrived unexpectedly). The circuitry of the Big Gete Star overloads, enabling Goku and Vegeta to crush the robotic Cooler. Usually, Dragon Ball Z balances fantastic action with slapstick comedy, but the "Cooler" films are almost entirely devoid of humor. (Rated TV PG. suitable for ages 8 and older: violence) --Charles Solomon

This is a great DBZ movie release. It comes with both Cooler's Revenge and The Return of Cooler, each on its own disc. The packaging is very nice, and the all aluminum case is awesome. So if I could give the packaging for this release a grade, I would give it a 5/5.

Now for the video/audio. It seems like almost all the reviews for this movie release were all from fans that have seen it and loved it when they first saw it. After just getting this set, I can say that there are a few problems with it. First, the aspect ratio. I can't say this is a problem at all because I guess it really goes by preference. It really is nice to see it in 16:9 aspect ratio and fill up your whole tv, and it looks great. The remastering is really nice. But you will once in a while find yourself slightly annoyed by the fact that someones head is half off the screen. Its not a big problem but when all you can see is there chin, it really starts to annoy you. But all in all it doesn't wreck the movie. Video quality 5/5 Aspect ratio 4/5

But my biggest gripe is only for the american dub with american music. When I first saw Cooler's revenge when it first came out I was so pumped with the sweet music kicking in at the right times. It was so awesome to hear an awesome rock track start right as Goku punches Cooler in the face. But with this remastered release it seems like they screwed up the syncing for the music. Right when it was time for the first music track to start playing timed to one of Cooler's squad bashing Gohan in the back of the head I noticed that the music started about 4 to 5 seconds earlier. I thought it was just how it was supposed to be, but every other track for the rest of the movie started early. This totally wrecks the flow of the movie for me.

I hate the new movie ideas that say goku is now a God..its just ssj with blue why not buy a real super sayin movie was my thought. This bluray looks great in classic yet HD, its is action packed brawling and im going to say the steel tin is wonderful! It is a must have. Plus gives a much better story than sayins that are mokeys turned Gods...with blue hair and nothing else new to the transformation? Can you say lazy. This is what they were aiming for! Both movies on 1 disc I give it 5/5!

I am a fan of Dragon Ball Z since my youth and when I saw these steel packs of the movies at the first time, I started to purchase them in Amazon. The problem is that the Cooler movies wasn't available to purchase, probably because the end of the inventory. In September of the last year (2010), I've been in US and I tried to buy this item, without success. After that, I periodically looked in Amazon if this item was available with a reasonable price. Because this movie became a collector's item, the price was so high, imagine for a guy in Brazil where the freight cost already is so expensive. And so, I found a seller offering a used product and I decided to try, if I'd really wish to complete my collection. I really tried to complete my collection not because I wished to have all movies but, because the Coller's story is really very fun. If you see Dragon Ball Z since the first episode, you can see that the main point of the plot is related to a universal dictator. After the Sayan's saga, Goku discovered that Friezer, this dictator, destroyed his homeworld and now he rules the universe, but fears the "super sayan". This is the story of Dragon Ball Z. The next chapters exists because the success of the serie, and of course this serie could not simply finish. Seeing the movies, the simple existance of a Friezer's brother is enough. And the movie is very interesting because you can see stories with Goku as a super sayan and Vegita starring in the Dragon Ball Z movies. Furthermore, Coller has an additional transformation, and it was very cool. In summary, this is a great Dragon Ball Z movie, and I recommend it for all fans.

When it comes to "Dragon Ball Z" films, when it comes to memorable villains, the two that will always come to mine when it come to the fans are Broly and the other is Cooler. For fans of the Frieza saga, the Cooler films have been fan favorites due to the amount of action involved but also how it relates to the storyline of the original television series.

For the fifth Dragon Ball Z film titled "Cooler's Revenge", the film was shown in theaters back in the Summer of 1991 and for the most part, if you haven't watched the Frieza saga yet, it is best not to watch this film just yet as it does contain spoilers to the Frieza saga and the second Dragon Ball Z special "Bardock the Father of Goku". As a matter of fact, if you haven't watched these two, it's probably best that you don't read further, because my synopsis will contain spoilers.

"Cooler's Revenge" takes place after the battle between Goku and Frieza, which the feared tyrant was defeated by Goku. Cooler, the brother of Frieza, has always despised his brother from afar. Always, seeing his brother always getting the upperhand and recognition but when he hears about his brother's death, he feels that he needs to beat Goku in order to restore his family's honor. So, Frieza along with his Armored Squadron - Doure, Naiz and Salza go to Earth to find Goku.

Meanwhile, Goku, Gohan (along with his pet Icarus), Krillin and Oolong go on a camping trip and needless to say, they are attacked by the Armored Squadron. But as quickly as Goku is easy to fight against Cooler's henchman, Goku is hurt by trying to save Gohan.

With Goku out of commission, Cooler and the Armored Squadron are hunting for Goku and friends who are hiding out inside a cave. But they need to get some help, will they get it in time?
