WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Hot Wheels Battle Force 5″ returns with the second half of season 2. Why they couldn’t just combine it into one season is beyond me. It’s not like it would’ve been cost prohibitive. My complaints about the show still stand from the last review. That being said, I get that this material isn’t for me. I just wish that it asked more of the young kids watching it. Growing up in an age of many toy commercials disguised as cartoons, I wish that younger audiences would be a wee bit more demanding.
The teen drivers angle is pretty boring. Whether it’s the classic cartoons such as Turbo Teen or Pole Position, nobody wants to sit around and watch teens drive around the town. The forced stories about fighting off an evil oppressor, protecting the earth and vile villains is trite. That being said, I’d eat it up with a spoon if I was six. After all, I watched every episode of Chuck Norris and the Karate Kommandos growing up.
The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is pretty standard. I’m not really sure what was expected. The transfer is standard while the Dolby track is straight surround. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to parents of elementary school aged kids.
