DVD Review: BEN 10: OMNI-TRICKED – Season One, Volume Two 

BEN 10: OMNI-TRICKED was created by Man of Action and features the voice talents of Tara Strong as Ben Tennyson, Montse Hernandez as Gwen Tennyson and David Kaye as Grandpa Max. 

Ben 10 follows the story of ten-year-old Ben Tennyson, who, on a seemingly endless summer vacation with his Grandpa Max and Cousin Gwen, discovers an alien watch, the Omnitrix. This amazing device gives Ben the ability to transform into any one of ten spectacular and powerful aliens. Throughout the series, Ben, Gwen and Max travel the country in their motor home, affectionately known as the Rust Bucket, seeing the sights, stumbling into adventures, and beating down would-be villains while generally having a blast.

Ben 10: Omni-Tricked follows the young hero, his cousin and their grandpa who go on all kinds of exciting adventures where they always end up going up against weird super villains to save the day. Ben wears this high-tech watch that allows him to morph into ten different aliens that allows him to take on whatever new threat that presents itself and each alien features its own unique personality that also comes with an attitude. What happens on this newest adventure is that Ben ends up unlocking an eleventh alien when he goes up against a powerful new force that arrives. Ben thinks that he’s mastered his watch but sometimes it has a mind of its own and the aliens pop in and out of control but the kid always finds a way to come out on top and defeat the enemy.

The front of the packaging features the artowork you see at the top of the page and the back includes series details, episode listing and specs. The DVD disc is white and only features the series logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this standard-definition release were really good. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, I had a blast watching BEN 10: OMNI-TRICKED Season One, Volume Two that’s a fun animated series with a sense of humor that kids of all ages can enjoy. There have been quite a few incarnations of Ben 10 over the years (even a few live-action movies) but the franchise is mostly known as a ‘toon universe that’s geared towards a younger audience. Ben 10: Omni-Tricked follows previous fan-favorites like Ben 10: Alien Force, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Ben 10: Omniverse that featured the hero in his teens, but becides that, the magic is still present in this latest animated offering that shows the hero at a younger age. I thought the voice cast did a really good job with these wonderful characters and the animation style fits just right for fast-paced storytelling like this. This animated series features Ben, his cousin Gwen and their grandpa Max who go up against all kinds of goofy super villains to save the day and usually there’s a few lessons to be learned in the process. BEN 10: OMNI-TRICKED Season One, Volume Two will be available on DVD on September 18th.
