Dragonball: Evolution

A few years ago, when I first heard about an Initial D live-action movie, I thought, "This could be okay -- after all, it's just a manga about racing and drifting cars; how badly could Hong Kong filmmakers screw it up?" Then I saw the movie, and I remembered that only Americans have the money it takes to purchase a license and make it look high budget; everyone else winds up with a low-quality product which looks low-budget. The latest movie I speak of is the upcoming Dragonball movie. Take a look at this teaser poster, and try to tell me it doesn't look terrible.
