G.I. Joe Renegades: Season One, Vol. 1 DVD Review


Synopsis: Soldiers ... heroes ... outlaws. On the run after being accused of crimes they didn't commit, six young G.I.s battle to clear their names -- and expose the real bad guys, COBRA Industries. The world thinks this giant corporation is good, but it's really run by evil people who want to rule the planet. It's up to these renegade Joes to stop COBRA, save the world and themselves.

Review: GI Joe Renegades is the newest incarnation of our beloved 80s action franchise.  This one airs on the HUB cable network.  The first thing that strikes me about this show is the drastically new animation style.  Its at first glance overly simplified, but once you readjust, its fantastically stylized and works perfectly with the action-tone of the show.

This one starts out with various army members, pre-organized team in a world where Cobra is a huge and beloved corporate entity, with a dark secret.  The new Renegades team includes Duke, Scarlett, Roadblock, Tunnel Rat, Snake Eyes and Ripcord.

I am a lifelong GI Joe fan and this is the best and most interesting take in a long time.  This one has fantastic voice acting, including talents Jason Marsden and Kevin Michael Richardson.

This DVD from Shout Factory!  collects the first seven episodes of the series.  Not bad for a partial season release.  We highly recommend this one!
