Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters – Predacons Rising [Blu-Ray]

Release Date: Now Available on Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack & DVD

A Review By: Kevin Lovell

Film Rating: 8/10

Disc Rating: 8/10

Plot Summary:

Chronicles the epic battle between the Decepticons and the Autobots in their mission to defend Earth and one day restore their home planet of Cybertron.

First off, just to clear up any confusion anyone might have when seeing this release, this is not simply a collection of random episodes that make up a movie length. This is in fact the finale of the entire ‘Transformers Prime’ series. ‘Predacons Rising’ takes place following the events in season three of ‘Transformers Prime’ and serves as both a standalone film, and the series finale of the show.

I believe I should let everyone know that while I am a huge fan of ‘Transformers Prime’ I am unfortunately not up to date on this series, hence I can therefore not really state whether this was a proper series finale and if all questionstfp.bh.pr02 were wrapped up and resolved because I unfortunately can’t be certain what I may have missed in the bit of the show that I am behind on. What I can tell you is it felt to be a pretty great wrap to the show as far as I could tell. It was certainly full of plenty of action and excitement that should keep the kids quite entertained and happy through a good few multiple viewings of this one, and is a pretty great time for the adult fans of the series such as myself as well.

Fellow fans of ‘Transformers Prime’ will most likely want to pick up a copy of this one in order to complete their collection of the series. For those wondering about the Season 3: Beast Hunters release, that has indeed been announced and will be available to own Tuesday, December 3rd on Blu-Ray and DVD on Tuesday from Shout Factory as well.

VIDEO:

The video on the Blu-Ray release of ‘Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters – Predacons Rising’ is a full 1080p High Definition presentation utilizing the original 1.78:1 Aspect Ratio in which this television film (and the entire series) was created. The video presentation on this release looks pretty great. The detail as well as the depth, smoothness and combined sharpness of the animated video look fantastic, and once again Shout Factory does not disappoint. Fans of the series picking up a copy of the film should be quite pleased with the video quality on the Blu-Ray release.

AUDIO:

The Blu-Ray release features an uncompressed English 5.1 channel DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack and I must say it sounds pretty impressive. All of the action, flying and explosive noises overwhelm in a positive way while still allowing all of the dialogue in the center channel to be perfectly understandable. This is a pretty satisfying uncompressed audio track that should leave everyone quite happy.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

The only special feature included on the Blu-Ray release is a ten minute behind the scenes featurette.

Film Rating: 8/10
