Why is Goku white? This must be Kung Fu the Legend Part II when Bruce Lee conceived The Warrior but it was retooled by Hollywood as Kung Fu The Legend series and was given to a white guy KUNG PAO (seen the movie?) Carradine (as alleged in the movie The Bruce Lee Story). It was hilarious - the discrepancy is so stupid and I can't help but laugh.
Hollywood is doing it again with Dragonball (more like Dragonbull)- with a white guy as Son Goku. It is like making a movie on Confucius and cast Jack Nicholson as the Great Thinker (he would be Confused - sorry I can't resist). I hope this movie goes the way of Speed Racer - a huge BOMB at the box office. Look at the picture - Goku is supposed to be a nice Asian hero not an angst-ridden white boy with self-image issues (I hope the storyline isn't like this). What's with hair? Did he get electrocuted minutes before the photo shoot? The guy looks like Ben Stiller. The actor isn't even muscular and he looks like a wimp. Man, he has this lazy eyes - it's scary.
