Wow I gotta say this DBZ film is probably the first one to actually leave me feeling extremely disappointed. I don't watch these expecting masterpieces but I can't help but feel like it could've been so much more. Compared to the action of his first film Broly's action here is just kind of boring in my opinion. First let me just say that this is the same Broly that was practically toying with all 4 super saiyans from the Cell saga...and now you expect me to believe that Videl, Goten and Trunks (Kid Trunks btw) can take a clean hit from Broly and actually survive it? I blame the dumbed down action all on the fact that the protagonists are two kids to be honest. Thanks to fact that he spends about 3/4 of the movie fighting Goten and Trunks, his brutality is toned down exponentially, which is exactly what made him so great in the first place. Since I am a huge fan of the original Dragon Ball I tend to love Dragon Ball humor but with this film all the humor just feels so out of place, his 1st appearance was incredibly serious and now we're making jokes around him? It gets a bit better once Gohan arrives but honestly not by much, it still doesn't come close to reaching the levels the 1st film did.
This movie also shot down any possible chance of expanding the little personality that Broly had in the first movie by literally turning into the Savage Hulk by having 99% of his dialogue only be him yelling a name. I actually believe you could have changed Broly to being any other villain and it actually would not have changed anything. In my opinion the biggest missed opportunity here was not having Vegeta around to get a rematch with Broly, it would've been great to see him possibly redeem himself after the humiliation he experienced in the 1st film. The way Broly is defeated this time is a lot better than it was previously but that doesn't come close to saving this film.
Despite all that I still have to admit the animation is top notch, some of the best I've seen in the DB franchise.
