Yeah, but... what does that have to do with what I was saying about him being played by Cole's actor?

well despite having spliced scenes from shenkinjer, gokaiger, and go-onger it was epic :mrgreen:

but as far as a theme for sammurai goes it fails

maybe for a for a crossover movie(which would make no sense seeing as how rpm was a stand alone series and gokaiger hasnt even been translated yet not to mention the fact that we havnt even started on gosiager)but not for a stand alone series

What? No it didn't. It took footage form Shinkenger episode 36, the Shinkenger movie, and the Shinkenger vs. Go-Onger movie.

There was nothing from Gokaiger in it.

Me neither.

Here's what all bugged me about it.
  • It wasn't a full blown crossover, as Scott was the ONLY RPM Ranger to meet the Samurai Rangers.
  • Scott never demorphed. His reason for not doing so was lame.
  • His voice actor wasn't Eka Darville (unless "Tobias Reiss" was a pseudonym, as his voice sound VERY close to Darville's).
  • Antonio's actor, Steven Skyler, was absent. Someone named "Jeremy Birchall" dubbed over his morphed scenes. Skyler had previous arrangements that prevented him from showing up.
  • The special was aired out of order, since there are power ups, zords, and characters in this movie that haven't been given proper introductions in the series yet, but are treated as though they've always been there.
  • RPM was confirmed to be an alternate dimension (and maybe another planet to boot!) from the main Power Rangers continuity.
  • None of the other RPM Rangers make any appearance at all, only references. Emily: "Scott, your team says hi."
  • Scott acts like a royal jerk throughout a good amount of the movie.
  • The Red Rangers race each other to fight the enemies, yet this race takes FOREVER to get through, padding out a good chuck of the movie. During which they both act like jerks to each other.
  • Both Red Rangers take part in a plan to fool the enemies, when really this plan doesn't make a lick of sense and the REAL reason for it was to fool the audience instead.
  • The editing of the footage from the two movies made the plot of this movie fell really forced and really disjointed. Once they defeat the main villain of this story (who's Sentai counterpart was the villain of the Vs. movie), there's suddenly another Big Bad they gotta beat (whose Sentai counterpart was the villain of the Fated War movie), as though his importance had been made known the whole time. Yet, IT WASN'T.
  • During the whole Megazord fight, Scott and (Not-)Antonio spend their time trying to fix the engine of a (Symbol Power-created) car... in the middle of the battlefield. Yep, they were too busy FIXING A CAR to help in the Megazord fight.
  • The method of which the (very small) RPM cast used to travel to "Earth" from their dimension and back was really lame, lazy, nonsensical, unexplained, and random.
And yet, in spite of all of this, the whole thing was somehow fun. Riddled with facepalms and nonsense, but still somehow kinda fun. I guess it helps that the action was good. But this was, by no means, up to par with such crossovers as "To the Tenth Power" and "Reinforcements from the Future".

But they really should have waited to air this thing next season, since it makes no sense in this placement.

And throwing in footage from the non-crossover movie made this thing feel really rushed and really clumsy.

Well, the did call it "The Movie" in the title card. ;)

I dunno. I just wish they weren't being so cheap with this season and the next season.
