Featured TV on DVD Review: Power Rangers: Super Megaforce: The Silver Warrior

February 8th, 2015

Power Rangers: Super Megaforce: The Silver Warrior - Buy from Amazon: DVD

The latest incarnation of the Power Rangers is called Super Megaforce. It is the 21st season of the long-running show and it is a bit of a special season. The original Japanese series the show borrows from, Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, was an anniversary celebration, so in the series, the Power Rangers were given the ability to change into any of the Power Rangers from the past. Does this add to the nostalgia of the show? Does this come across as a silly gimmick?

The Show

  1. Samurai Surprise
    The episode begins with a brief run-in with Mentor Ji, we learn that Emperor Mavro is not happy that his son, Prince Vekar, has not taken over the Earth. The Emperor has sent Matacore to help complete the job. Meanwhile, the Power Rangers meet the previous Red Ranger, Jayden, and get a powerful new weapon in their fight.
  2. Spirit of the Tiger
    While the Power Rangers are visiting the zoo, they meet a previous Red Ranger, Casey Rhodes, from Jungle Fury. Meanwhile, Prince Vekar gets a new ally, Pacha Chamak, whose hand-to-hand skill is legendary. Worse still, he has the power to disarm the Power Rangers. As a result, Emma and Jake turn to Casey to help them train in hand-to-hand.
  3. Silver Lining: Part 1 and 2
    Prince Vekar decides his path to victory involves sending wave after wave of X Borgs, the drones. However, when the Power Rangers get to the scene of the attacks, they are too late. Someone is beating the X Borgs before they can get there, a Silver Ranger. But who is this new Power Ranger? And can he be trusted?

The Extras

As usual, there are no extras on the DVD.

The Verdict

Power Rangers: Super Megaforce: The Silver Warrior is typical of the latest incarnation of the Power Rangers. Long-time fans of the show should have a blast with all of the old costumes; however, using toys as the keys to unlock them was just too silly. The DVD has no extras, but that's common for this show.
