Robotech: 2-Movie Collection DVD Review
We were recently asked to review the Robotech: 2-Movie Collection which will became available from Lionsgate Home Entertainment on DVD, on July 23rd, 2013. I had never heard of Robotech and nor had the children so we were pretty excited to check it out as it looked like something similar to the popular cartoon and movies Transformers.
The synopsis says "The Robotech chronicle continues with the unveiling of the all-new anime adventure Love Live Alive. Taking place during and after the events of Robotech: The New Generation (available in Robotech: The Complete Series from Lionsgate Home Entertainment), this thrilling installment in the Robotech saga follows the adventures of Lieutenant Lance "Lancer" Belmont as he recounts his journey from before his first encounter with Scott Bernard to the aftermath following Admiral Rick Hunter's expedition to liberate the Earth from the mysterious Invid race. Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles continues the epic battle as Scott Bernard must once again face his tragic past as he joins the returning Robotech Expedition against new mechanized adversaries known as the Haydonites.
The action in this film was pretty great as the boys said they were fighting alien robots while trying to protect the earth. We actually let the boys watch this one evening before bed and the next morning they awoke to tell us they thought it was a little scary for them especially at night. This really surprised me since my kiddos watch all levels of horror but I guess it just wasn't for them.
Recommendation: I thought the quality of the films and even the story line was a pretty good one. I don't know if I'd be willing to pay $20 for this though unless I knew my kids were fans ahead of time as that is kind of pricey for a children's DVD.
