Red Vs. Blue: The Chorus Trilogy - Season 11 - 13 (2013 - 2015/Flatiron Blu-ray Steelbook)

Picture: B Sound: C+ Extras: A Episodes: B+

For years the Red and Blue teams have been at each others throats and have somehow survived deadly bounty hunters, evil rouge A.I., aliens and each other. Now, setting aside their differences, they have somehow crash landed on another alien planet (again) name Chorus in the middle of a civil war. In order to be rescued, the Red and Blue must once again work together to stop the war, uncover an evil military plot, stop space pirates and the Freelancers. Can the Red and Blue teams live up to become the soldier/heroes they have been training (or lack of) to be?

Review of the seasons featured of Red Vs. Blue: The Chorus Trilogy:

Season 11 - After crash landing on a planet the Red and Blues try to reorganize their supplies and ammo in order to be rescued. Little do they know they are being watched and they soon discover they are in a planet wide civil war. They are dragged into the war when the rebels promise them if they help them win the war, they can have a ship to return home. However, they were ambushed in a surprise attack and their team separated.

Season 12 - With their team now scattered the remaining Red and Blue seek to rescue their friends only to discover they were doing the same. They uncover an evil plot that the civil war was being manipulated by mercenary spaces pirates and controlled by the military to find alien and Forerunner technology. However, what they didn't count for or plan for was the Red and Blues somehow uncovering everything ...and they aren't going down without a fight.

Season 13 - Out numbered and out gunned the Red and Blues seem hopeless to stop the rogue mercenaries (but that never stopped them before). They stopped the civil war but both sides are still tentative towards working together. Now, they only hope is to find and activate the Forerunner technology before their enemies can. They discover a weapon that can wipe out the entire planet. However, they need a 'key' in which can only be wielded by a 'true warrior' (oh boy...) Can the Red and Blue finally put a stop to Project Freelancer?

Based on the famous Halo games of futuristic high tech soldiers, Red vs. Blue continues to be an action filled comedy/drama between the characters. A lot of the comedy and drama comes from the characters side comments and often breaking the third wall of the entire series. They make fun of the soldier/mercenary life styles as a group of characters with caches of military ammo, weapons to 'play' with. The whole Red vs. Blue series play like character moving around in a video game like a 3rd person shooter with each season you can see improvement video quality and effects.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer on Blu-rays get better with each season, with Season 11 a little weaker and simpler than the previous seasons, but the improvements following are nice. Still, we only get lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 as sound throughout, so still no lossless sound. Extras include a ton of stuff like Evolution of an Episode, the Art of Chorus, Motion Capture Animation, Music of RvB, Very Scary Mercenaries, Leaving Chorus, Outtakes, PSAs and trailers.
