The most altered retelling of the Original Dragon Ball.
Takes place after Goku and Krillin finished their year training with Master Roshi. As they head for the World Martial Arts Tour. They'll soon learn there's trouble upon the royal palace, where Master Crane & Mercenary Tao are both plotting something that involves harming Prince Chaozu who is also searching for something he lost.

Out of all 4 movies this one is the most alternate reality of the Original DragonBall. The roles of Chaozu, Tien, Mercenary Tao, Upa, Bora, & Master Crane are entirely different in this movie. Even General Blue & Sergent Metalic are completely different people.

Not only are the characters taking part of unique role plays. The feature shows an alternate meeting of Upa & Bora as well as a different visit to Penguin Village. It's the same flow as the other 2 movies. Only the word "Alternate" would best describe the story to it. Because everything about it is alternate from head to toe.

If you liked the first 2 which had different flows too. Then you'll mostly likely like this one too. Only down side is it's the same length as the first two. Making you wish that there was a Director's Cut of this movie.
