Lots of us slam live action anime movies.

Have to ask, which did you find the least enjoyable?

For me it was Samurai Princess. Overly excessive gore, borderline hentai at it's worst right down to a monster with a bladed tentacle d__k

Yeah I wont watch that again, of course since it was not actually based on an anime I will say Dragonball

This, one of the worst things I have ever seen (my biggest gripe was the casting).

Hands down it's the Kekko Kamen movies. The manga (from Go Nagai) and anime are little more than softcore porn, but I can accept that for the medium. The live-action movies are also softcore but they're cheaply done. Really really cheaply done. These movies are so bad (and not in a good way) that they make Dragonball Evolution, The Guyver, Fist of North Star and Wicked City look like Oscar contenders. I'd even say they're worse than the live-action Sailor Moon series and the live-action porn movie for La Blue Girl. Those two at least had a special effects budget over 5 dollars. I'd rather have a root canal while viewing The Last Airbender movie than rewatch any of the Kekko Kamen films. Curiosity can bite you in the ass sometimes...not unlike a villain from Kekko Kamen.

I have to go with Dragonball: Evolution. It was awful. I also have to agree with The Last Airbender nods. It's not as bad as Evolution but it still was a bad interpretation. I also am not a fan of the live-action movie(s) based on the Sundome manga.

For your sake, don't. If you do, then only watch for the special effects as they are the only good things done with the movie.

I don't honestly know if I've seen live-action based on anime other than The Last Airbender (questionably anime IMO) and parts of the first Death Note film (rather enjoyed that.) I'd imagine Dragonball: Evolution is worse than either of those, though.

The Last Airbender hands down, it was just dreadful

Dragonball Evolution hands down. Yet to see Last Airbender but I'm guessing it isn't worth it.

Dragon Ball Evolution. It was decent up to a point but then I fell asleep on it in the theater.

I've never heard about Dragon Ball Evolution, That movie doesnt exists, and if it exist I'm in a severe case of reality denial caused by a mental trauma so ahrsh I locked up my memories about the event.
