Broly: Second Coming is a fairly good movie. The movie has plenty of action for viewers to enjoy such as Broly's several fight scenes and with the heavy rock music in the background it creates the perfect illusion for an action-filled fight. There are several positive concepts about this movie for one to enjoy such as the fact that the movie had great fight scenes, comedy, great animations and a good background story. 
 
The fight scenes were impressive as Broly virtually dominated all who crossed his path proving to be a complete psychopath as he did in the last movie. I also praise the movie because Broly displayed great power in his normal Super Saiyan form overwhelming Gohan, Goten and Trunks completely and I like the fact that they kept the "Broly dominating" concept in this movie. The fight scenes were amazing however the Super Saiyan 2 Gohan vs Legendary Super Saiyan Broly where Broly clearly dominates Gohan however Gohan quickly passes out after a few seconds without barely performing any critical action.
 
The soundtracks in this movie are impressive as well as the heavy rock songs were great in the background of the scenes which created the illusion of more action. 
 
The movie also has a fair amount of comedy such as the scene where Broly is attempting to break Trunk's back and Trunks suddenly urinates on his head and even Broly shows disgust at the act as he uttered "uugh", another comedy scene is when Goten loses the Dragon Balls and tries to find them when they are scattered along with other grey balls and utters possibly the dumbest sentence in the movie when he finds the 4 star Dragon Ball he says "I better look well because we all know how many orange balls there are here" and this scene clearly implies that Goten inherited his intelligence from Goku. The comedy scene at the end however was not that amusing nor funny as it was a very common scene in several television programs a scene where Videl comically berates Gohan for not being present when she was drowning as Gohan crawled away which initiated her chasing him and this scene was fairly a stale comedy scene and not that funny. Another funny scene is when Goten attempts to summon The Eternal Dragon (Shenron or Shenlong) with the Dragon Balls but didn't know how and Trunks who was incredibly worried if Goten will succeed showed great fear as he attempted to hide from Broly however it was a fairly comical scene. The other comical scene is when Krillin breaks the fourth wall.
 
Another positive thing about the movie is how the showcase Broly as not just a mindless destroyer and killer and actually have him display some intelligence as he launches an energy ball at Gohan as it is seemingly going to hit Gohan and Gohan himself braces himself for the impact as he closes his eyes however much to Gohan's surprise Broly makes the energy ball after being mere inches away from Gohan fall to the ground actually to attack Goten, Trunks and Videl. The movie also continues to showcase Broly's mental insanity as his mental deteriorating state causes him to confuse Goten for Goku and then confuse Gohan for Goku.  
 
The movie's greatest scene in my opinion is the Family Kamehameha scene, I also enjoyed how the plot played out and how Broly was defeated as Goten and Gohan launched a Brother Kamehameha at Broly's attack however were still overpowered and Goten quickly uttered "I wish dad was here" to which the Dragon Balls began glowing and Goku seemingly descended from the sky and joined his sons and fired his own Kamehameha with his sons creating for the first time a Family Kamehameha and it can be seen that when they are firing the kamehameha both Goku and Gohan are in their Super Saiyan 2 forms and Goten in his Super Saiyan form however even with their combined power they were unable to overpower Broly and they themselves were overpowered by Broly's attack until Trunks launched an energy ball at Broly's attack as it created a barrier between Broly and his attack leaving Broly unable to send more energy balls to his attack and finally was defeated as the kamehameha sent him plunging into the Sun were he met his end and died.  
 
Even though the movie has several positive concepts to it it does have several drawbacks and negative concepts. What I hated most about the movie is the scene where Broly transforms into his Legendary Super Saiyan form and it can be seen that it is the same animation they used in the first Broly movie and that greatly disappointed me and just showed the laziness of the movie's animators. Another negative feature about this movie is that Broly seems less bulky and muscular in his Legendary Super Saiyan form than in his first appearance and one of the most disappointing feature was the fact that the movie's creators claimed to have forgotten to add the blue electrical arcs to Super Saiyan 2 Gohan's aura which caused much confusion as to whether Gohan was in his Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan 2 form however it has been confirmed that Gohan was indeed in his Super Saiyan 2 form when he fought Broly. 
 
Overall this movie was a very good movie with certain drawbacks and negative features however all in all I would award this movie a rating of 9 out 10.
