Review:

While Power Rangers fans, young and old, are patiently waiting for new batches of the current Dino Charge season to air on Nickelodeon, they'll just have to settle for this month's DVD release of Power Rangers Super Megaforce: The Legendary Battle, which is the combination of the last two episodes (The Wrath & Legendary Battle) of the Megaforce series. Included on the single-disc is the bonus featurette - Power Rangers: A Legacy.

Power Rangers Megaforce debuted in early 2013 and centered on five teens - Troy (played by Andrew Gray), Noah (played by John Mark Loudermilk), Emma (played by Christina Masterson), Gia (played by Ciara Hanna) and Jake (played by Azim Rizk), being summoned by the supernatural guardian Gose, so the can protect Earth from an alien invasion by becoming the Megaforce Rangers. The second season added "Super" in the title and a sixth ranger - Orion (played by Cameron Jebo), a young man that traveled from another planet to help stop the alien armada from destroying Earth.

After defeating Prince Vekar and his brother Vrak, the Ranger thought the battle was finally over, but shortly after Orion leaves Earth, Emperor Mavro attacks Earth with a bigger armada. He sends down Levira to destroy the Rangers once in for all. Emperor Mavro orders his fleet to destroy Angel Grove, which results in the Rangers' zords being destroyed.

The only the way to defeat Emperor Marvro's army is for the Megaforce Rangers to teamup with the Legendary Rangers (played by Sean Cw Johnson, Alison MacInnis, Danny Slavin, Selwyn Ward, Patricia Ja Lee, Jason David Frank, Jason Faunt, Reggie Rolle, Melody Perkins, Hector David Jr. and Brittany Anne Pirtle) for one final battle of good vs. evil.

While the Megaforce seasons were meant to be a throwback to the original MMPR, many diehards were disappointed in the series. I'm sure there a few fans that were looking forward to the Legendary Battle due to the fact that old Rangers were returning, but were probably disappointed that only a few actors returned and only had a very small cameos. Plus, there is the little plot hole of how some of the Legendary Rangers got the powers back as most of them were destroyed in previous seasons. Nevertheless, the DVD is still fun to watch as long as you don't take it too seriously, which features the extended-version (10-minutes longer than the original broadcast). The special featurette is basically clips taken from the extras that were on the Shout! Factory box set. Overall, despite it's flaws, Power Rangers Super Megaforce: The Legendary Battle is an entertaining, action-packed episode.
