“A Battle to the Finish DVD Review”

August 11, 2014



The fifth and final volume of the Power Rangers Megaforce DVDs is released on August 12th. It contains the final four Megaforce episodes, as well as a Zord Gallery. Here is my review.


OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION


In the shadow of an impending alien invasion, Troy, Noah, Emma, Gia and Jake must battle their greatest enemies in four final duels! With the help of Robo Knight, the Ultra Gosei Great Megazord and all of their Power Cards and Morphers, the Power Rangers race against time to defeat a reborn Admiral Malkor, a giant Metal Alice, the transformed Cyborg Vrak and a powerful new alien called The Messenger!


PACKAGING


The volume comes with a holo-box style cover. The cover art for the release is once again, movie poster worthy. The Rangers & Robo Knight above the Earth just look amazing. The holo slip cover makes the artwork pop.



The DVD case is just a standard case. The artwork on the front is the same, just without a holo style. The back shows the Megaforce Rangers in Ultra Mode, Robo Knight, Vrak in his Cyborg form, and the official description of the release.  There is nothing special included inside. The disc art is mostly the same as the case cover art, but just focusing on the Ultra Mode Rangers & Robo Knight.


EPISODES


The four Power Rangers Megaforce episodes on this DVD are:


17 - Staying on Track


The Rangers must race to save the day when Metal Alice plots to throw the city into chaos by derailing a passenger train. Meanwhile, Robo Knight comes closer to understanding humans when he meets a young boy.


18 - The Human Condition


Admiral Malkor awakens from his cocoon stronger than ever and determined to destroy the Power Rangers.


19 - The Messenger


The Rangers' victory over the Warstar aliens is short-lived when they discover Metal Alice has turned Vrak into a powerful and menacing cyborg.


20 - End Game


When Cyborg Vrak, Metal Alice and the Messenger launch a vicious attack against the Power Rangers, it will take all their powers and abilities to save the earth.


These final four Megaforce episodes are very good. They have a great deal of action and adventure to them. Plus they all lead right to the epic battle with The Messenger & Vrak.


BONUSES


This disc comes with a Zord Gallery Bonus Feature. All the Zords & Megazords from Megaforce are shown off in the gallery, though not all of them have pictures to accompany them. Still, the gallery does a good job of describing the Zords & Megazords. I think it would have been better had each Zord/Megazord gotten it’s own screen, with some having looping video clips of said Zord or Megazord.


FINAL VERDICT


“A Battle to the Finish” DVD is good for both kids & collector fans of Power Rangers Megaforce. The final four episodes are very enjoyable, and the Zord Gallery is fun. Once again, the cover art is amazing and I commend those at Saban Brands and Lionsgate who put these DVD covers together.


The Power Rangers Megaforce “A Battle to the Finish” DVD will be available on August 12th, wherever DVDs are sold. It should cost $10 to $15, depending on the retail store. Lionsgate has not yet announced when or if a Power Rangers Super Megaforce DVD will be released.




ALLONS-Y!
