So it appearsLionsgate will stretch this out one more year by since there's still the final 8 episodes left to be release. At least they're making up the lack of episodes (since Vol. 3 had 13 episodes) by including a Mach 5 car - which is a better gimmick than the theme song cover that had the battery die after six months.
As for the show, it's always amazing. Before my cousin shipped out to Iraq, we spent an afternoon watching Vol. 2. It was like we were back to being in elementary school - except we didn't need a fake ID to buy our beer. The limited animation techniques in the series don't detract from the story.
First of all, of the first 1-4 volumes, this is the most violent. Again, it's cartoon violence and doesn't seem particularly gratuitous, but I waited a full year until my daughter was 6 before letting her watch these. Older kids, I'm sure, will have no trouble with the material.
Second, one of the series is very much like a previous episode "Car Hater", but it's still a good story.
Finally, I have to say that there are more twists and turns in this one than I remember in the First Two sets of Speed Racers. One of them, "The Man in the Mask", actually left me and my daughter gasping with shock at the end!
Very exciting stories; and, I think they have a good message, too, of Right Vs. Wrong, Good Vs. Evil, etc.
Great series, and this is sure to be one that you'd like to include if you liked the previous three volumes.
The height and width of the outer box matches the same dimensions of a standard DVD case but is almost 1 1/2" deep to accommodate the die-cast toy.
The DVD begins with four previews, which you can just skip (run times in minutes:seconds):
Ultimate Avengers The Movie 1:55
Dragons Metal Ages 1:47
Inspector Gadget's Biggest Caper Ever 1:13
Pinocchio 3000 1:59
All four are either 2D or 3D animation. Beyond the previews, I found no other DVD extras, which is why I gave it four stars instead of five.
sucks for doing this (but then what can you expect from a company that creates a logo that is so dark you can barely see it.) I am not a gerbil. I really want to see these episodes the way they were originally shown.
I also am giving the DVD 4 stars due to the limited number of episodes, but like all Speed Racer episodes, the content rates 5 stars.
Go Speed Racer, Go !!
It's too bad they aren't bringing it back, old school style. That would be the way to do it.
