Editorial Reviews

This remastered set contains 2 Dragon Ball Z movies in Blu-ray: Tree of Might and Lord Slug

The Tree of Might:

The Earth’s destruction lies dormant within a single, solitary seed. Brought forth from the darkest reaches of space, the Tree of Might has been sown with the vilest of intentions, for once it takes root nothing else can survive. A plant designed to drain the energy of a planet, it steals the very essence of life only to blossom in death and desolation. Unable to fell this mighty threat, Goku and the Z Warriors must instead confront the harbinger of the evil, a Saiyan bearing an uncanny resemblance to our hero – Turles. This new enemy kidnaps Gohan and sets the son against the father, a tragedy which only delays the inevitable fight. As Goku finally faces off against his deplorable double, Turles turns to the thieving tree…

Lord Slug:

Once again called upon to save their planet from disaster, Goku and Krillin race to head off a giant asteroid on a collision course with Earth. The threat deflected, their home is saved… Or is it? A greater menace looms in the shadows, a being so evil that he was banished from his old world and now seeks to create a new one of his own. Lord Slug, prepared to dominate by freezing all opposition, seeks out the seven Dragon Balls. Fully restored to youth and more powerful than ever, the Z Warriors soon prove no match for this ancient enemy, a Namekian with abilities from lore and legend. As Goku falls, another must step up before all is lost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action-packed, colorful and much better on Blu-ray! January 24, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
"TREE OF MIGHT/LORD SLUG", the third and fourth "DRAGON BALL Z" films are now out on Blu-ray featuring even more action-packed battles, both digitally remastered in 1080p High Definition.

VIDEO & AUDIO:
Video is presented in 1080p High Definition and 16×9. With the first two films, because of its age, the colors stood out but there were much more scratches and dust that were evident in the video presentation.

For "TREE OF MIGHT", the scratches and dust were minimal and "LORD SLUG", very little. So, this second volume of the "DRAGON BALL Z" film series definitely looks much better video-wise compared to the first volume.

With the 1080p conversion, the colors are vibrant for two films that are nearly 20-years-old and personally, this is probably the best we will ever see these two films on the Blu-ray format.

But the video quality is much better over the first two films and I was pleased with that.

As for the audio, audio is presented in Dolby TrueHD English 5.1 with Japanese Music (or with U.S. Music) and the original Japanese audio track. The Japanese audio is in its original presentation, and it's a version that I have seen multiple times of these films when they were shown on Japanese television. With that being said, you're not going to get much at all from your home theater system for the Japanese track. Now for the Dolby TrueHD English 5.1 track, oh my... you will hear the difference.

For "TREE OF MIGHT", you actually hear the forest ambiance as Gohan, Bulma, Oolong and others are going camping. You hear the sounds of the animals around you and especially the fire and the flames burning. I was very impressed by the sound distribution on each speaker channel for "TREE OF MIGHT" and "LORD SLUG".

Format:DVD
In recent years, FUNimation, who has begun to release countless anime titles spanning various genres, has gone back to the franchise that made them big - Dragon Ball Z. They have gone back and begun releasing the series and the films in inexpensive season sets and double features.

The newest double feature is this set, which combines the third and fourth movies of the Z series - Tree of Might and Lord Slug

Tree of Might features the Z-Fighters pitted against a group of space pirates destroying Earth with a tree that sucks the life force out of any planet it is grown on. The fighters go into battle with this new threat, only to find they may be powerless to stop it. If things weren't already bad enough, the leader of the space pirates is a Saiyan - even more powerful and heartless than the two our heroes fought against not so long ago. Through the tree, he aims to grow fruit, which he can eat, and become even more powerful - so powerful that he believes he will be invincible.

Lord Slug features an ancient, mutated evil Namekian coming to earth, hoping to use the Dragon Balls to wish back his youth (a Namek wishing back his youth... haven't we seen this somewhere else before?) He succeeds, and turns the Earth into an icy wasteland. Goku and company must wage war against this new force threatening the planet.

These are two decent movies, though not the best in the series. Tree of Might has some decent battle scenes, but it's basically an hour of everybody getting beat up and Goku coming to the rescue. Yawn. Though Turles is an interesting villain, he doesn't really get the character development he should, and that as a whole makes the story weaker.

I love Dragon Ball Z and I love all their movies. When watching their films, they take you're mind off real world problems and take you on a journey Goku's world and all the things he has to sacrifice in order to protect the ones he love.
