3Po and Jammy love Power Rangers. They were Power Rangers two years ago and often take their costumes out to play dress-up. We have a couple of Power Rangers books which they like to read now and then, and their drawings are littered with Power Rangers. Which is kind of strange, considering they've actually watched an episode of Power Rangers -- until now. We were invited to preview the newest Power Rangers DVD (out on September 8). I was a bit worried that it would be a bit scary for them, but they actually loved it! In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they ask to be Power Rangers again this Halloween :)
Power Rangers RPM is the seventeenth and current season of the ever-popular Power Rangers TV series, and Power Rangers RPM: Race For Corinth is a DVD compilation of 4 episodes from the series. It's actually the second DVD that Disney has released (Volume 1, Power Rangers RPM: Start Your Engines contains episodes 1 thru 4; Race for Corinth is Volujme 2, and contains episodes 5 thru 8). In Race For Corinth, we get to see how Scott (Ranger Red), Ziggy (Ranger Green), Flynn (Ranger Blue), and Summer (Ranger Yellow) became Power Rangers.
Here's a short clip from the DVD to get you all revv'ed up:
This DVD is a little boys' dream! After it ends, my sons love to relive all the episodes, and I've gotten used to hearing all kinds of strange explosive and/or karate noises coming from their mouths. They loved all the fast karate action and the cool vehicle-to-robot transformations. And since I've got pretty sensitive kids, I'm glad that there's just enough silliness in the plot to overcome their fear of the bad guys and keep the tears (or worse, nightmares) from showing up.
I wish they had also included the Black Power Ranger's story on this DVD because all my kids (okay, their mom as well) were left hanging! Oh well, his story is on Volume 1, so I guess we'll just have to buy Volume 1 to find out.
The Bottom Line
Power Rangers fans will love this DVD! Even better, buy it along with Volume 1 so you can get the complete back story of how these Power Rangers and their allies started out.
