DVD Review: Saban's Power Rangers Samurai: The Sixth Ranger Volume 4

My family and I recently received a copy of the new DVD Saban's Power Rangers Samurai: The Sixth Ranger Volume 4 to review.

This all new to DVD live action branch of the Power Rangers world is the debut of the Gold Ranger! It contains four episodes: "Unexpected Arrival", "Room For One More", "The Blue And Gold", and "Team Spirit".

When a mysterious fisherman arrives, the Power Ranger Samurai meet their newest ally, Antonio. Before he can join the team as the Gold Ranger, he must prove he possesses the true spirit of the samurai. The Nighlok monsters challenge the Rangers when evil Master Xandred sends Steeleto to attack while Antberry and Octoroo attempt to open a portal and Splitface taps human spirits. The Gold Ranger helps save the day wth his Barracuda Blade, the OctocZord, and the Clawzord's megamodes.

The DVD does contain some bonus materials, including a "Bloopers" featurette, the "Ask A Ranger" featurette, and the "Train Like A Ranger" video.

The Power Rangers franchise has been around for 20 years now, and the Samurai Rangers are the newst incarnation with some upgraded powers. To us adults, the show has some seriously cheesy effects and acting, but to young kids, they just love this show. It's geared best for the 2-6 crowd, and both boys and girls.

Saban's Power Rangers Samurai: The Sixth Ranger Volume 4 will be available on Tuesday, May 14th, 2013, so mark your calendars! Not rated, it's safe for all ages with just some exaggerated roughhousing. Widescreen format, the total running time is 92 minutes long. The suggested retail price is $14.98, but Amazon has it available on pre-order for $9.99 as of this posting.

I received a copy of this DVD in order to view it and share my thoughts on it. All opinions are my own.
