The Centurions: The Original Miniseries DVD Review


Synopsis: "In the near future Doc Terror, and his cyborg companion, Hacker, unleash their forces to conquer Earth! Only one force can stop this evil: a handful of brave men. In specially created exoframes, they can be transported anywhere to fuse with incredible assault weapon systems, beamed down from the space station Skyvault, becoming man and machine, Power Xtreme! Max Ray, brilliant Sea Operations commander. Jake Rockwell, rugged Land Operations specialist. Ace McCloud, daring Air Operations expert. Whatever the challenge, they are ready—the Centurions!" Debuting as a 5 part mini-series, and enjoying contributions from three of the greatest action artists of the 20th Century – Doug Wildey, Gil Kane, and Jack Kirby – The Centurions promised to pack a punch – and it delivered! Get ready for mad machine action as 3 masters of land, sea, and air do battle with a mad inventor for the fate of a planet.

Review: We were familiar with Centurions through the 1980s toyline, but the cartoon never aired in our area...at least not that I ever noticed, so I was excited to check out this miniseries.  The show went on to have two seasons, a total of 65 episodes, and hopefully we'll see the Warner Archive release this full series eventually.  I was overjoyed to be introduced to Max, Jake and Ace and their great mech suits.  The show is well-written and has great animation and a tone that is ideal mid-1980s.  The video looks fantastic, great quality, and the sound is good.  This one is a must-have for any Centurions fan and it can only be found at wbshop.com!
