B Sound: B- Extras: D Film: C
10 is about a boy named Ben who acquires a watch-like alien
device called The Omnitrix that allows him to turn into other alien
creatures. The evil Albedo, Ben's arch nemesis, has gone deep
undercover with his Ultramatrix device and is disguised as Ben,
tricking Ben's friends and earning their trust. Though the baddie
seeks a device that will finally change him back to Galvan form and
allow him to carry out his most diabolical plan yet! It's up to our
heroes Ben, Rook, and Max to stop Albedo from absorbing Azmuth's
intelligence and taking over the galaxy. Unfortunately as the evil
Khyber (who oddly resembles Marvel's Thanos) as an ally, Albedo
Albedo Story on this disc is three episodes entitled The
Ultimate Heist, A Fistful of Brains, and For A Few
was my first time seeing this show and all in all I find it to be
pretty average. The animation is what I would call standard -
similar to what you would see on Saturday morning television. The
creature and characters designs I don't find to be unique enough to
make the show stand out like I think it aims to.
vibe reminds me of the Green Lantern but doesn't have the
characterizations or as cool of a concept that makes it comparable.
The age range for this show I would say would be pre-teens or
early-teens - it's not dark or gritty enough to appeal to young
adults and the jokes are very kiddy.
standard definition transfer is fine for this DVD release - along
with the lossy Dolby Digital Stereo 2.0 audio track. The total
running time for the disc clocks in around 110 mins.
episodes on this release include Evil's Encore, and Return
to Forever. No other Special Features are on this release.
