Z Movie # 5
no Saikyô tai Saikyô"
("The Incredible Mightiest
movie begins, actually, with a scene from the first
DBZ TV special; Bardock (Goku's father), has challenged
Freeza to a battle with the intent of killing him.
Freeza, however, has different plans; using a giant
Death Ball, Freeza annihilates not only Bardock,
but the entire Saiyan race (along with Planet Vegeta).
We then see this happening through the viewscreen of
a spaceship; Freeza's brother, Coola, is watching
the event. One of his crew spots a Saiyan space pod that escaped the planet's destruction, and asks permission to destroy it. Coola declines, stating that this is Freeza's problem; he should reap what he sows with his own carelessness. He decries his brother as "too soft," and his ship departs just as Planet Vegeta explodes. 24 years later, Coola
receives a report stating that Freeza has been killed.
Gohan, and Kuririn go on a camping trip, and are
attacked by Coola's henchmen. Coola wants to fight
Goku and discover the true strength of the legendary
"Super Saiyan" that supposedly killed
his brother. Coola shows off transformations similar
to Freeza, taking it one step further (a fifth transformation
that Freeza did not have). Goku, however, is either reluctant or unable to transform, and is eventually forced to the wall. With his friends out of commission and his strength depleted, a dying bird landing in his hands pushes him over the endge and causes him to turn into a Super Saiyan (and miraculously bring
the bird back to life at the same time, apparently).
He now showcases this raw power against Coola. Coola
believes he has finished off the Super Saiyan with a Death Ball even larger than any of Freeza's, but
is surprised and destroyed as Goku knocks him into
the sun with a massive Kamehame-Ha.
see Coola's body disintegrate as he is pushed into
the intense heat of the sun, while he suddenly realizes that he has been defeated by none other than the Saiyan he let escape all those years ago...
Back on Earth, it seems like everything's back to normal...but where's Piccolo? Gohan runs up happily when he sees a nearby pile of rubble begin to stir, but it's actually Coola's henchman, Sauzer! He prepares to attack, but is unable to as he is killed by one of Piccolo's techniques. Gohan calls after Piccolo, who bends down to quench his thirst from a stream. He looks up, and the end credits begin!

Movie Five marks the last production FUNimation
would release with the English dub featuring "real"
American bands performing the soundtrack (until Movie 8, anyway). Movie
Five is also the first (and only, thus far) to contain
THREE language tracks; English, Japanese, and Spanish.
English is provided in both 5.1 and 2-channel stereo
formats, while both the Japanese and Spanish tracks
are in their original mono sound. All language tracks
have their own closed-captions / translations that
are individual to their specific versions. The Japanese
and Spanish versions (found only on the uncut DVD) retains the original Japanese score, of course, as well
as fabulous translated subtitles
