Power Rangers Super Megaforce: Earth Fights Back
(Andrew M. Gray, John Mark Loudermilk, Azim Rizk, et al / DVD / NR / 2014 / LGF)
Overview: With the help of their powerful new legendary morphers and keys, Troy, Noah, Emma, Gia and Jake are able to morph into the Power Rangers Super Megaforce! And there is no time to lose, as they must save the city from Cybax’s impending missile launch, battle Skatana’s Octoblade attack and defeat a massive X-Borg assault.
DVD Verdict: I have to fully admit that I've been awaiting this new adventure on DVD for rather a long time! The franchise, in general, is mostly about frenzied kick action, preposterous moments and general nonsense. But 'Power Rangers Super Megaforce: Earth Fights Back' changed all that thanks to polished effects, costumes, fights, acting, and most importantly writing.
The writing takes the cake as it implements a lesson/theme into each episode while simultaneously giving character development with an actual plot of how a small group of teenagers need to defend Earth from evil aliens (thanks to the costumes the villains are definitely menacing rather than ridiculous).
My favorites are the Red Ranger Troy (disciplined, serious, yet caring and knows that everyone has weakness) and the Pink Ranger Emma (one who deeply cares about the world around it and knows that there is always a way for everyone to work together). All in all this is one that both fans and perhaps non-fans (including reluctant parents!) can enjoy, ranking along the veins of the underrated Lightspeed Rescue. So come one, one and all, and dive into the epic battle as the Rangers fight against a massive alien Armada and discover legendary new special abilities at the same time!
