The plot of this movie is impressive however the ending is a slight disappointment. The characters are in their correct personas and what I especially enjoyed was Vegeta's cowardice when he witnessed Broly transform revealing himself as the fabled Legendary Super Saiyan which I thought was brilliant given Vegeta's arrogant and haughty personality one would think he is virtually fearless and believes himself to be in a class above any warrior however when he encounters Broly his attitude changes drastically which actually reveals Vegeta's fear of death.  
 
A number of other things I enjoyed was Broly's origin and the reasons that explain his intense hatred for Goku (Kakarot) and his psychotic personality made him a unique and dangerous antagonist in the movie and I enjoyed how Broly loves to cause pain and suffering rather than quickly kill his victims and how he is uplifted at the very thought of destruction. The action and violence in this movie were very good as well as the sight of natural and rocky structures being demolished and destroyed throughout the intense battle between Broly and the Z Fighters. The movie also has scenes with comedic relief such as during the beginning of the movie Krillin is seen singing and has a terrible voice that even Trunks wonders if anyone is enjoying his singing and also the scenes in which Master Roshi becomes intoxicated (drunk) and attempts to eat Oolong's foot as they sleep and the scene were he challenges Broly to a fight and called Broly "Broccoli" an actual pun on Broly's name only form him to immediately back down from actually fighting. 
 
I also enjoyed how Broly's power was displayed, a young infant born with the power level of 10,000 which was equal to that of King Vegeta's as an adult. Broly easily and effortlessly thrashed 2 Full Powered Super Saiyans, Super Saiyan Trunks, Super Vegeta and Piccolo who at the time was on par with the likes of Android 17 in terms of power and being the only DBZ character to ever display enough power to destroy entire galaxies. The movie also shows Goku's willingness to fight and his ability to never concede as he continued to fight Broly in a losing battle even after the other Z Fighters were defeated and bloodied. Broly's cruelty is truly unmatched as he killed his father showing no signs of regret for being the cause of his father Paragus' death whom he saved during the time of his infancy.  
 
The movie however was not perfect and it had a few imperfections such as Paragus' ridiculous rouse to simply lure the Z FIghters to a barren and broken world, his plan was not well made and had terrible excuses for attempting to hide the fact that Broly was the Legendary Super Saiyan and also the fact that Broly was easily defeated at the end with a single blow, Goku had absorbed the power of Piccolo, Vegeta, Gohan and Trunks who were dramatically weakened from their thrashing and surprisingly that power was enough to defeat Broly when it was all absorbed by Goku who defeated Broly by delivering a punch to his abdomen but in fairness to Broly it was delivered in his weak spot the area where he was stabbed as an infant, because of Broly's display of incredible power throughout the movie he should not have been defeated so easily by the combined power of weakened Z Fighters who were not able to cause any physical damage to Broly at all which is a plot hole in the movie and Broly's defeat was incredibly quick as if the movie's creators wanted to rush the ending.  
 
In general this movie was a good one and I would give it a 8 out of 10 with just some slight imperfections.
