Synopsis: vs. the Devil
Pros: Fusion Reborn is a pretty great movie. But it’s unique among the DBZ films in that the antagonist is actually the least interesting part. In this movie, the big villain is this super demon that doesn’t really talk. At first, Goku treats him like a fun diversion, but even he can’t beat him at SS3. So the emotional crux of the film comes when Vegeta arrives, and has to be convinced to Fuse with Goku. You see, at this point in the story, Vegeta has already sacrificed himself to save his son. He was no longer a arrogant/selfish person, so it was very interesting to see how a more mature Vegeta behaved. A lot like The Return of Cooler, it’s Vegeta and Goku’s interactions that steal the film (well, aside from Gotenks and Trunks fighting zombie Hitler).
Cons: As mentioned above, the villain is totally forgettable. In fact, I don’t even remember his name. It was J-something, I think. Timeline wise, this film is very confusing. It clearly takes place during the Buu arc, but I’m not quiet sure when. This may be one of those between episodes deals. And I wish Gogeta had more screen time. Even Vegito got three episodes.

I had to look his name up!
