Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

The 1996 American update of the 1985 Japanese Transformers series is based on a computer game and a line of toys from Hasbro. Like Voltron: The Third Dimension (1998), which it resembles, Beast Wars reveals just how quickly computer graphics evolved. The weightless characters move in simple, repeated cycles and never come in contact with the ground when they walk or run. The pseudo-Valley Dude dialogue ("Cool your circuits!") and the way the filmmakers trot out every toy in every episode (to remind potential buyers of their existence) recall the bad old days of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Fans of video games and/or toys will enjoy the screaming battles between familiar characters in their organic and robotic forms; others will quickly weary of the repetitive story and over-the-top vocal performances. Unrated; suitable for ages 8 and up: Violence. --Charles Solomon

4.0 out of 5 stars Very underrated July 15 2004
Format:DVD
Being a cartoon, this show starts out with a lot of stigmas. I loved the original transformers as a kid. This show was unbelievable. Yes, it was all about selling toys but the creators weren't just satisfied with that alone. The story telling is weaven together better than most primetime television shows. There are very few holes. I dare you not to feel a little teery eyed when Dinobot hits the dust. One of the saddest deaths I've seen on the tube. Oh and Austria stop blasting the show. You have obviously not seen the show and are just a cranky Transformers fan that wont give this new show any respect. Those are the only people that do not like this show. Those that haven't seen it and dismiss it as nothing but a stupid cartoon. Then, there's the original Transformers fans that can't accept this show being better and never give it a chance. If you watch this show from the beginning you will be addicted, I guarantee you. Although as said the show really hits it's mark in season 2 with a lot of drama. Season 1 is a lot of introduction. Season 3 is the payoff with the bots heading back home, very good season. Season 4 is a bit of a mess in auto world but it's entertaining. There wasn't anywhere else to go after season 4. It was a fun ride. I give it a 4 but for cartoons this is definitely a big 5 stars.

This series is waste of time, no personalities, no cult, just a commercial series

This spin-off series is really just commercial nonsense. Everybody loved the original characters, why did they restructure the complete series?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great TV Series Jan. 16 2003
Format:DVD
I used to watch these and I'd always find time to talk about them and how cool each episode was with my friend at school. The plot is great, it's even funny, and it's cool how it inter-twines with the original Transformers series which I used to watch growing up. A must buy for fans of the originals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let the Beast Wars Begin! Oct. 24 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This DVD is definetly a must buy for Beast Wars fans. In this DVD the first six episodes are presented. The picture and sound quality is very impressive, although it is a bit better in Volume 2. The first six episodes are not particularly interesting, in my opinion, but I enjoyed "Chain of Command" and "Power Surge" the most. There are no special features on this disk,..., but you occasionally see little snipets in the episodes that were not there on TV. For example: You see Megatron bash Terrorsaur in the back in "Beast Wars, Pt. 2" also, at the end of that episode when Optimus declares the "Beast Wars" the camera zooms away from him for much longer. Overall this is a good DVD That is more then worth purchasing. I just hope that Rhino continues to release them until they finish up the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maximize Oct. 12 2002
Format:DVD
I have all episodes of G1/Beast Wars/Beast Machines on VHS and have had Transformer episode's watching marathons a few times and everytime i watch the last few episodes of The Beast Wars i still get chill'a down my spine..when the Maximals goes to the legendary Autobot ship known as the Ark which is the orig ship that thier Golden Age Ancestors Autobots crashed into the volcano causing to go into thier lock status etc..and seeing Optimus Prime in all his CGI glory and Optimus Primal together.and G1 Megatron..Soundwave which of course they wake up in modern times to begin the ***The Great War***
seeing the Decepticons ship Nemesis in Beast Wars just completed it..amazing story telling..
i have not brought any of the Beast War DVD episodes but in time i am sure i will...i am just reviewing the seasons over all story telling....it is a blessing to watch the over and over again..same with Beast Machines afterwards...even though G1 is still my fav..Beast Wars was a great chance to remember and old while being soaked in with the new...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection Aug. 3 2002
Format:DVD
This DVD continues Season one of the television series. Season one was the weakest of the three seasons, but there were still a lot of good episodes. The descriptions are completely wrong by the 2 hosers who reviewed the DVD. Beast Wars was not based on a video game, the show did not originally air on Fox Kids, and Beast Wars did not make every toy into a character on the show. Beast Wars is the best show based on an existing toy line. The creators did not turn every toy into a character; there was plot, growth of characters, and even the killing off of beloved characters. Even when a new toy was coming out of said character. The animation is a little rough in the first season, but it gradually gets better. The best part about these DVDs is that they are the original uncensored episodes before Fox Kids brought out the scissors and toned down the violence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good...But COULD have been better... Aug. 1 2002

I enjoyed seeing all those episodes again on DVD. Beast Wars will go down in history for me. However, I think it could have been better if it was a complete 1st season DVD collector's item.
