Blu-ray Review: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fourth Season

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Tala Ashe, Jes Macallan, Courtney Ford, and Ramona Young, with Nick Zano and Dominic Purcell, with a special appearance by Matt Ryan reprising his popular role as John Constantine. Based on the DC characters, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg BerlantiPhil Klemmer, Keto Shimizu, Grainne Godfree and Sarah Schechter

After defeating the demon Mallus by cuddling him to death last season, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow join John Constantine and Ava Sharpe’s Time Bureau to save their world – and their legacy – from magical creatures from myths, fairytales and legends who have escaped and infected history. As the Legends time-travel across historical events and encounter famous figures, they now have to contend with an added shot of magical craziness! 

The Legends think they’ve fixed all the timeline disruptions caused by their reckless mistakes but what they discover is that they’ve unleashed all kinds of monsters and maigical creatures that are causing havoc throughout history. The Legends race across numerous timelines to stop the likes of blood-thirsty unicorns, puppets, a former president, minotaurs, fairy godmothers, werewolves, lucha libres, witches, a giant squid, dragons, a love demon and even an angry ex. There’s even a song and dance number this season that viewers have to suffer through and I also consider this a timeline disriuption because the Legends shouldn’t be breaking out in song and dance.

The full time addition of Matt Ryan’s character John Constantine was a great add to the team this season. I like the Constantine character and think Ryan is perfect as this supernatural antihero. The big standout this season to me was the introduction of Nate’s father Hank (Tom Wilson) and these two aren’t close at all in the beginning but as the season plays out the son and father repair their fractured relationship. Nora Darhk (Courtney Ford) also gets a second chance and gets to join the Legends on some of their time traveling adventures and I thought she was a great addition and a character we should see more of. There’s also the part-time addition of the Time Bureau’s Gary Green (Adam Tsekhman) and Mona Wu (Ramona Young) who’s full of hairy surprises.

The packaging comes with a nice slipcase – the same kind all of the other home video release like this from WBHE come in. The front features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes season four details, some images, and list of special features. There’s also an insert inside that includes a list of the episodes with synopsis, original airdates, more images, and series credits. The two Blu-ray discs are charcoal and feature the series logo. Inserting each disc, the menu screens were simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this high-definition release were crisp and clear. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow continues to deliver insanely fun adventures in its fourth season which might be the craziest and its strongest to date. It’s all about the writing here because they come up with some insane stories for these characters that continue to be fun to follow. They borrow/ripoff a lot from other movies and series but it works. There’s still the Hollywood agenda thrown in here and there but it’s not as cringing as Supergirl. The cast continues to do a great job with their characters but the thing about Legends of Tomorrow is that there’s a revolving door so we see people come and go all the time in every season. This season is no different because it introduces viewers to several new characters that play important part to the season but it also says goodbye to a few. We also get to see a few familiar faces show up from previous seasons and I always like seeing these characters return even if it’s for just a few scenes. Legends is story and character driven first and foremost but the series is also special effects heavy and it’s some of the best we see on the small screen and is extremely well done. All in all, the fourth season of Legends of Tomorrow was a cheesy good time and I really enjoy watching these misfit superheroes travel through time and space so they can mess things up and then try to fix it all. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fourth Season will be available on a 2-disc Blu-ray set (plus Digital) on September 24th.
