Dragon Ball Super: Broly has already cemented its legacy as one of the highest-grossing anime theatrical releases in the United States. That success isn't just exclusive to the film's box office, though, as it's enjoying a great deal of critical acclaim, as well.
The film currently sits at 81 percent among critics on the review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes. Meanwhile, the audience score is an impressive 93 percent.
Of course, it's worth noting that, while 81 percent is a fair critic score, the average rating is 6.9/10 based on 30 Fresh reviews and seven Rotten reviews. Nevertheless, with an average audience score of 4.6/5 based on over 1,500 reviews, it's easy to see the film is still an overwhelming crowd-pleaser.
Taking place after the events of the main anime series, Dragon Ball Super: Broly sees the titular Super Saiyan make his first canonical appearance. Confronting Goku and Vegeta, the powerful exiled warrior draws upon a seemingly endless reservoir of strength, which forces the pair to desperately work together to defeat him.
Directed by Tatsuya Nagamine, Dragon Ball Super: Broly is out in theaters now.
