“Power Rangers Dino Super Charge: Roar DVD Review”

January 10, 2017



Though Power Rangers Ninja Steel is less than two weeks away, Power Rangers Dino Super Charge is making its way to DVD today. This first release contains the first half of the season. Let’s take a look at everything this release contains.


POWER RANGERS DINO SUPER CHARGE: ROAR OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION

The Power Rangers continue their search for the Energems after Sledge’s defeat, but soon learn that his most dangerous prisoner, the evil Heckyl, survived! In light of this new threat, Kendall creates a powerful new Dino Charger that unlocks the Red Ranger’s T-Rex Super Charge mode! It will take every Zord, Megazord, and Dino Charger in the Power Rangers’ arsenal to finally unite all ten Energems and save the universe.






PACKAGING, ARTWORK & DISC

This DVD release has a holo slip cover over the DVD case. The artwork is decent, mostly focusing on the T-Rex Zord & T-Rex Super Charge Red Ranger, with the Stego, Tricera & Ptera Zords in the background. The back artwork looks better showing more of the team in their Dino Super Drive mode, and the Raptor & Para Zords, along with the DVD description and details. Disc 1 matches the front artwork, while Disc 2 matches the back artwork. There is no insert card with the DVD release.


MENUS

The Main Menu for both discs features the image of the T-Rex Super Charge Red Ranger, against a city backdrop with the Dino Charge theme song instrumental playing, and the menu options. The episodes menu for Disc 1 features the Aqua & Pink Dino Super Drive Rangers, along with the first five episode choices. While the episodes menu on Disc 2 shows the Gold & Black Dino Super Drive Rangers with the other five episode selections. Disc 1 Language Menu has the T-Rex & Ptera Zords, and Disc 2 shows the Para Zord.


EPISODES

This first Dino Super Charge set has the first ten episodes of the season. The episodes run the gambit of action packed adventures, to more simple & comedic.



#1 When Evil Stirs

The Rangers believe their work is done after they've defeated Sledge and his evil monsters. Unbeknownst to them, an even more powerful monster is picking up where Sledge left off and is closer to the Rangers than they think.



#2 Forgive and Forget

Snide plans to contaminate the city water with venom that makes you forget who you are in hopes that the Rangers will be infected. Meanwhile, Riley has a score to settle with an old rival at the Amber Beach Marathon.



#3 Nightmare in Amber Beach

Shelby receives a pillow from an unknown sender. When she uses it to take a nap, she starts living a nightmare. The Rangers suspect this must be from Snide so they all make sure to stay awake, but that proves to be harder than they thought.



#4 A Date with Danger

Chase tries to impress his new girlfriend, Kaylee by showing how talented and accomplished he is. But when it becomes more about him and less about her, Kaylee starts to fall for the Black Ranger instead.



#5 Roar of the Red Ranger

Tyler tries to master the new T-Rex Super Charge Mode, but after Heckyl plants a virus in Kendall's computer, the T-Rex Super Charger malfunctions and makes Tyler go wild! Luckily, the Aqua Ranger is able to step in before it's too late.



#6 Forged Under Fire

Tyler looks forward to catching up with his dad after not seeing him for the past 10 years. When Tyler's Energem becomes cracked, he is forced to mend it by placing it in Hot Lava and prove to his dad he's not a kid anymore.



#7 Home Run Koda

Kendall creates a new Victory Charger that requires the core 5 Energems. But when Riley becomes Koda's coach on the Amber Beach Earthquake baseball team, he has a hard time pulling himself away from the game to help the other Rangers.



#8 Riches and Rags

When Ivan mistakes a thousand year old suit of armor as a training dummy, he finds himself in debt after destroying it. Heckyl sends in a hybrid monster named Spell Digger to spread greed to anyone who touches his gold coins.



#9 Besties 4Eva!

Shelby's lifelong friend Erin starts to take credit for a song that Shelby wrote when they were kids. But when Erin starts to take credit for the work of the Pink Ranger, she quickly realizes how dangerous it can be to claim ownership of someone else's work.



#10 Gone Fishin'

The Silver Ranger contacts Kendall from the far reaches of space to let them know where the location of a new Zord. When Singe and Fury intercept the message it becomes a race to see who can get there first.


BONUS FEATURES
The DVD comes with no bonus features at all. There is not even a digital download code for you to have access to the episodes.


FINAL VERDICT

This is a good DVD for Power Rangers fans that want to continue to have all the episodes on DVD. It’s also great for any young Power Rangers fans. I would have liked for there to have been some kind of bonus feature, but since you are getting 10 episodes for only $15 or less, it’s not that big a complaint. The episodes themselves are okay. I feel Dino Super Charge fell a bit in story & depth compared to Dino Charge. Nevertheless, this is still a good DVD set to buy for fans.

The Power Rangers Dino Super Charge: Roar DVD is available starting January 10, 2017, wherever DVDs are sold. It should cost $10 to $15, depending on the retailer.


Be sure to also pick up the Power Rangers Dino Charge Complete Season DVD on February 7, 2017, and Power Rangers Dino Super Charge: Extinction DVD on March 7, 2017


ALLONS-Y!
