After defeating the demon Mallus by cuddling him to death last season, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow join John Constantine and Ava Sharpe’s Time Bureau to save their world – and their legacy – from magical creatures from myths, fairytales and legends who have escaped and infected history. As the Legends time-travel across historical events and encounter famous figures, they now have to contend with an added shot of magical craziness!
Please Note: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Post. The opinions I share are my own.
The fourth season of ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ rejoins our legends following their defeat of Mallus. But even while they may have defeated one terrifying threat, the actions they took to do so resulted in some unexpected consequences; namely the unintentional release of numerous deadly and unfamiliar creatures that managed to sneak out of their eternal prisons. Now, the legends must enlist the help of the magic wielding John Constantine in order to assist in locating the monsters and sending them to hell. But as they face off against one creature after another across time and space, the team starts to discover that they might not all be as easily classified as deadly and unflinching monsters. But as the team of the wave rider tries to help make things right in their own unique way, other threats both from afar and uncomfortably close to home begin arising.
Season four of ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ flies in full force with another massively entertaining collection of episodes spanning across time and space and loaded with gorgeous time periods, electrifying action and plenty of laughs. As per usual, it also switches up the team members to a degree, adding some noteworthy newcomers to the roster such as John Constantine (and with fan favorite Matt Ryan of the short-lived NBC series reprising his role no less) and of course no shortage of clever new monsters and villains for our heroes to tear through time and space after. With everything from deadly unicorns and fairy godmothers to foes much closer than they might imagine providing threats to our legends this season, all of it makes for another wildly entertaining and full throttle season of timeless fun that fans of the show should thoroughly appreciate. The ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fourth Season’ 2-disc Blu-ray release itself collects all sixteen episodes with solid overall high definition video and audio presentations for each, combined with some fun extras including ‘Deleted Scene(s)’ for numerous episodes in the season along with more (please see the special features section in the technical specification coverage of the review below for more detailed information) which should altogether do the trick and make it well worth grabbing a copy for dedicated fans of this consistently fun series that already own the previous three season sets on Blu-ray.
