Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Time has not been kind to Voltron, and matched with the annoying voices of the characters and the complicated storyline, this particular episode is best enjoyed by superfans of the show. Parents who were tweens and younger in the '80s might remember the syndicated television series Voltron. What should be immediately striking to those parents (and especially their kids) who watch VOLTRON: FLEET OF DOOM is how dated the animation and sound effects are.

The cartoon violence is also problematic, as there are seemingly never-ending explosions and laser rays firing at constant intervals. While the violence isn't gory, the scary world the character Keith finds himself in -- with bloody water and terrifying monsters -- is, for younger viewers and more sensitive viewers, a nightmare waiting to happen.
