Movie Reviews

A good disc, but a little of a dropoff
Steven Myers | SF Bay Area | 05/26/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This fifth disc (of six total) is the most disappointing--but only because the previous discs were so good. The chief problem is that it seems drawn out. There's a lot of fighting, but it doesn't really go anywhere. The creators may simply have moved too quickly toward the climax in earlier episodes, and realized they still had quite a few to go. A second problem is the new hardsuits: they're clearly designed to be sexy above all else (they just *try* too hard to be sexy), and they lack the cleaner, simpler look of the originals.That said, this is still a good disc, with important plot points revealed. In particular, we see why Mason wanted to free Galatea, and how she and the boomers operate. The artwork remains good (even if I don't like the hardsuit design), and there are some nice visual effects and interesting boomer designs. Even if it doesn't have all of the magic of some of the earlier discs, you'll still enjoy these episodes if you like BGC 2040. These are not BGC 2040's finest episodes, but they are an integral part of a good show, and they shouldn't be missed."
Awesome!

"This part of the six DVD is well done. The story takes on a more "OH my god! The world is in Peril!" theme. It kept me on th edge of my seat just waiting for the next scene."
