If a movie earns a paltry 15% on Rotten Tomatoes, chances are it's not very good. Dragonball Evolution, an extremely loose adaptation of Dragon Ball, earned this impressively terrible score, and for good reason – it's one of the worst anime adaptations ever made. In fact, it is so bad that the movie's main writer publicly apologized for its poor quality.

Why is this movie such a travesty? Dragonball Evolution is awful for a host of reasons, including whitewashed characters, a lack of respect for the source material, and a convoluted and incomprehensible story. If you're a Dragon Ball fan who was considering checking out the movie, you should probably reconsider – unless you're into hate-watching, you're unlikely to have a good time.
