My two year old loves this video since it stars Buzz, his hero from the Toy Story movies. As other people have noted, this is not animated the same way as Toy Story 1 and 2; it is a straight-forward cartoon. That said, it is still a lot of fun. We've watched this together many times (many, many times...parents, you know what I mean) and I still haven't gotten tired of it. The script is funny and well written with lots of great one-liners, especially from Zurg. There are plenty of laser blasts and action, but it is pretty tame any my two year old didn't find any part of it scary. I wish they had done this in wide-screen, but that is a minor complaint (from me, not my son). I am looking forward to the next one.

Initially, I had pretty low expectations for this film and expected that it would be a quickly completed low-quality effort released only to maintain the Toy Story cash flow. How many ways can they make money from "To infinity and beyond"? However, since my household includes a three-year-old boy, any new Toy Story item is a mandatory purchase.
I am pleasantly surprised how good the film is and how entertaining. My son is watching it repeatedly, and I have watched it three times with him. While the Pixar animators admittedly owe a huge debt to "Star Wars" (as they made explicit in "Toy Story 2"), Buzz Lightyear's story has the making of an interesting series on its own terms. I am looking forward to the next installment.
Buzz Lightyear, of course, remains an admirable super-hero as he zealously pursues Evil Emperor Zurg. His inherent "squareness" and single-minded determination to follow the Space Ranger rules are character traits that make him interesting. What I like about the film is the way it shows how even a super-hero can use a little help sometimes. Buzz's partners are eccentric and a bit out of the Space Ranger mainstream; it is nice to see the filmmakers give a nod of approval to eccentricity.
The film works as pure entertainment for children, but it also contains good messages about the value of friends, about persevering in the face of obstacles, and about how good always wins in the end. There is nothing subtle about the story or its presentation, but that is part of its charm.
Although you will buy this film for your children, the whole family might enjoy watching it. Even so, I sort of dread the new action figures that we might have to buy soon.

I bought the DVD of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins despite all the bad reviews given to it on Amazon. And I have to say, I was very impressed. It's not Toy Story, OK? Don't buy this expecting that, cause you won't get it. But it is a very witty, action packed movie, with a few twists and turns that I doubt anyone would predict. The animation is far better quality than most Disney direct to video releases, and some of the dialogue is great. Zurg is one of the only humorous villains that I have seen work on any movie. Most usually come off just looking goofy, but this movie really pulls it off. And although Buzz's character is slightly different from that of his Toy Story counterpart, he is still very lovable. Pretty much the only reason I gave it 4 stars was the running time. It's a bit short. But all in all, it's well worth the money, and I recommend it to everyone. I wish I could hope for the series to be this good, but the preview of it on the DVD makes it look like it will be horrible. Oh, and just to add a correction to an above review, in the beginning Pixar animated scene, Woody, Buzz, Rex, Hamm, and Wheezy all talk.

I bought this on DVD for my three-and-a-half year old son. He has enjoyed it just as much as Toy Story I & II (although the latter are clearly better, IMO). The plot is your garden variety save-the-universe stuff, the story moral is nothing earth shattering, and unfortunately, the animation quality is pretty much on the level of stardard Saturday morning fare (they use traditional animation instead of computer graphics like in Toy Story). But for a children's story, this movie has surprising wit, and that's what not only saves the story, it's what makes it surprisingly fun to watch--even on the tenth viewing... No, I wasn't rolling on the floor, but I found this a lot more amusing than some of Disney's feature film releases. If your kids already like Buzz from watching Toy Story, they'll probably enjoy this movie, too.

The 3 part beginning to the cartoon series, (the 2 seasons were never released to video or DVD. Silly Disney Corp.)

READ the description, Region is Not USA, requires a dvd player set to Europe region. ( dont know what it is? try googleing it , )

This DVD can be saved to your computer and played or burned to a "backup disk" to play on the home dvd player.

Personally, I have 2 dvd player, one is set to Region 1 - USA, the other is set to Region 3-4 // or Most players have a setting to change the region of the player.
Note that even with region set to 4 the player did play this region 2 dvd. = played with DVD Player and also ripped to mp4 to play on the computer. No Problem!

The cartoon itself is interesting and entertaining. A very good addition to the Toy Story set. It would be even better if the rest of the series was available.
