DVD Review - Power Rangers Dino Charge: Breakout

Not Rated; 92 minutes; $14.98; Amazon
Now available to purchase on DVD and Digital from Lionsgate Home Entertainment is Saban's Power Rangers Dino Charge: Breakout, featuring four exciting episodes from the hit series. There are no special features or extras on the disc.

Borrowing footage, costumes and props from the Japanese Super Sentai Series Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, Power Rangers Dino Charge debuted on Nickelodeon in early 2015 as the twenty-second season of the franchise; however, like other previous seasons, the Dino Charge episodes features a new plot, cast and villains.

Dino Charge centers on five young adults, Tyler, Shelby, Koda, Riley, and Chase who use the power of Energems to become the Dino Rangers. Guided by archaeologist Kendall Morgan and an alien called the Keeper, the Rangers uses their new-found powers, weapons and zords against the evil alien bounty hunter, Sledge, and his army of minions, who are dead set on collecting all the Energems.

The episodes featured on this release are:

"When Logic Falls" - Sledge sends down his newest monster, Puzzler, to distract the Rangers as he attempts to gain control of the Ptera Zord.

"The Royal Rangers" - Tyler and Shelby go undercover as a prince and a princess at a museum event to retrieve the "The Stone of Zandar," which happens to be the Golden Energem.

"Breakout" - Phillip III, the Prince of Zandar, arrives at Amber Beach to take his claim on the Golden Energem, but his arrival gives Sledge an opportunity to send his henchman, Fury, to steal the Energem.

"Knight After Knights" - The Rangers try to find a way to ally themselves with the Sir Ivan, the Gold Ranger.

Final Thoughts: While the Power Rangers franchise isn't exactly as popular as it was in the middle '90s, that will probably change with all the hype behind next year's big-screen reboot. The current season, Super Dino Charge, is currently on hiatus for the summer, and a new series (Ninja Steel) will debut sometime next year. In the meantime, fans of the franchise can enjoy watching these four episodes on this new DVD release.

Similar to other DVD releases, there are no special features or this disc, which is somewhat disappointing considering there are only four episodes. Nevertheless, the episodes that are on here are fun to watch. "When Logic Fails" is a standalone tale, but there other three episodes are linked together by the Golden Energem storyline.

Overall, I have enjoyed watching the Power Rangers Dino Charge: Breakout and I recommend it to other Power Rangers fans.
