'Red Vs Blue: Season 13' Combo [Blu-ray]
(Geoff Ramsey, Gus Sorola, Dan Godwin, Matt Hullum, et al / 2-Disc Blu ray / NR / 2015 / Cinedigm)
Overview: The sim-troopers of Blood Gulch have seen their fair share of insanity over the years, but they ve never faced anything quite like this. Stranded on the planet Chorus, the Reds and Blues must convince two enemy armies to join forces or suffer complete annihilation at the hands of a bloodthirsty war lord.
Blu ray Verdict: As the final installment in the critically acclaimed Chorus Trilogy, 'Red vs. Blue: Season 13' is as hilarious as it is thrilling. Between deadly mercenaries, alien artifacts and old rivalries, our hapless heroes are in for the fight of their lives in the longest running sci-fi/comedy series in American history, Red vs. Blue.
Following on from Season 12, when Caboose, Grif, Simmons, and Tucker are miraculously saved by the New Republic of Chorus, but who are then told that their friends; Agent Washington, Sarge, Donut, and Lopez have been captured by the Federal Army, as the final installment in the critically acclaimed Chorus Trilogy, 'Red vs. Blue: Season 13' continues ever onward with the humor, action, great story line, and, thankfully, all the glorious shenanigans we've come to know and love from these simulation troopers.
Also, as usual, excellent direction and cinematography abounds. Each season seems to become more and more cinematic, and I like that. It feels like a show you'd see on TV. Even better, it's setting up a long arc that makes me think that we'll have another few seasons at least. However, and playing Devil's Advocate, some of my favorite characters were not present for most or all of the season, although the others held their own. Also, most of the new characters they introduced felt flat and gimmicky.
That said, 'Red Vs Blue: Season 13' holds its own, as you would fully expect after all this time, and so after learning that The Chairman has been behind the war of Chorus all along (which wasn't that much of shock, to be quite frank), the Reds and Blues go to war with him, Felix, and Locus. And so between deadly mercenaries, alien artifacts and old rivalries, our hapless heroes are in for the fight of their lives in the longest running sci-fi/comedy series in American history!
