The Power Rangers has proven time and again to be a popular and successful franchise, despite its usually hokey special effects, acting and editing. Children along with some teens and even adults enjoy the series and its many incarnations, which brings us to the latest one released on DVD, Power Rangers Super Megaforce: The Complete Season. This set contains another twenty episodes on five discs that will have fans powered up and cheering until the finale.
After the rangers saved the Earth in the previous season, it turns out one of the alien bosses they fought named Vrak has a brother known as Prince Vekar that wants revenge for his brother’s demise and will stop at nothing to destroy the Rangers and the world. The magical guardian Gosei gives the rangers new power morphers and special keys that grant them new powers and abilities as the Super Megaforce Rangers. Besides sporting a pirate-like motif, that also have the ability to to transform into any Power Ranger from the previous seasons of the show. They will need these powers along with a new alien ally named Orion who becomes the Silver Ranger to stop Vekar and save the Earth.
As with my review of the previous series, this show is packed with martial arts action, monsters, robots, and giant robots and monsters that every kid and fan of the show will enjoy. Most people and those not not familiar with the show will laugh at the overall campy feel and production, but the series will live on as a new one is already in production along with a big budget movie coming to theaters. The shows looks good on DVD as the visuals and audio come through without a hitch. Fans will be happy to know that the extended version of the “Legendary Battle” finale episode is included as an extra, and gives the series a proper conclusion.
Children and fans of the Power Rangers and the Megaforce series will enjoy their time with the Power Rangers Super Megaforce: The Complete Season DVD set. Martial Arts, monsters, robots and spandex comes together as well as can be expected in a collection that loyal viewers will activate their morphers for.
