The Shadow Chronicles & Love Live Alive
I had the opportunity to review ROBOTECH before it was released to the public. I assumed because of the cover that my son would LOVE this movie. The images made me immediately think of Transformers. Please note that this DVD is rated PG, so unfortunately my son only got to watch it one time. Yes, I am that mom…the one that won’t let her child watch PG movies. I decided that he isn’t quite ready for a show like this one (mainly due to the language used…when I heard “damn it” within the first 9 minutes of the show, I wasn’t too excited for him to watch…luckily he was playing with his LEGOS and only paid attention during the scenes where the jets/robots were flying and fighting).
ROBOTECH is a sweeping science-fiction anime epic of humans defending their homeworld against alien domination. The saga is told through the eyes of characters caught up in a series of wars that erupts when a mysterious spacecraft crash-lands on Earth at the turn of the millenium. The secrets of alien knowledge aboard this vessel were unlocked, leading to the development of “Robotechnology” and the creation of a vast arsenal of robotic “mecha” to defend the Earth against the alien threats that would eventually strike to lay claim to the mysterious power source known as “protoculture.”
ROBOTECH has often been called a “space opera” because it is not just action-packed entertainment, but also an engaging drama. If you’re new to the Robotech phenomenon and want to know more about the episodes, characters, and storylines, we have a plethora of information available online at http://www.robotech.com/infopedia/
ROBOTECH is full of action! I know I will be saving this DVD for Logan. He will enjoy it when he gets older.
