Millions of years ago, Sledge tried to steal the greatest power in the universe, but he was thwarted by an alien called The Keeper who had dinosaurs protect the crystals sending Sledge hurtling into the air, beaten. Now that there are a new bunch of superheroes, Sledge has been waiting to get his revenge.
To recap on the first disc: Power Rangers Dino Charge Vol 1: Unleashed, a bounty hunter called Sledge tried to obtain 10 crystals called Energems millions of years back, and according to legend, each Energem could give amazing powers to those who had them. The Keeper's original guardian of the Energems stopped Sledge from getting the last of them, and in turn the Keeper left the Energems to the dinosaurs - the catch, the Power Rangers Dino Charge have to find the rest of the Energems before Sledge does.
In this 4 episode DVD we also find out how corny the series was even at this point, but that's okay as retro 90's fans will know that there had to be some fun in the series - can't be all serious, can we? The titles are comical and fit into the feel of the series. As Sledge is back, the Power Rangers Dino Charge have to show how mighty they are and fight for all they've got against the dangerous Sledge if their Earth is to stay peaceful.
They might have a lot to do as during their adventures they come across lots to test their skills of teamwork, fighting monsters, rescue Chase from a devastatingly evil spell, fight Cavity and fight against Power Rangers who just happen to look like them. The first and most important thing they have to deal with is Chase and how they can remove the spell, which for the other members of the team is a race against time as there is more to deal with now that they are only four working members.
Some of the episodes are better than others, but I will let you be the judge of what you like rather than laying down my own preferences. As this series is the more updated, the titles of the episodes do too, Breaking Black sounding suspiciously like hit TV series Breaking Bad.
Bonus Material:There are 4 episodes in this DVD; Breaking Black, The Tooth Hurts, Let Sleeping Zords Lie and Double Ranger; Double Danger.
Summary: Fun, short but sweet, it's the perfect second volume for fans of an already established series.
