Storyline

After a successful mission in which his partner, Warp Darkmatter, fell in battle, Buzz Lightyear vows never to put another partner at risk and works solo. This vow, however is challenged by Star Command who assigns young Mira Nova to be Warp's replacement over Buzz's objections. In addition, the LGMs suggest he tries a new robot for an assistant while a lowly janitor, Booster, has his dreams of joining the Space Rangers. Together, this group of disparate heroes find they must work together to save the galaxy when Emporer Zurg hatches his grandest scheme for conquest yet.

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins

When the evil genius Zorg comes up with a diabolical plan to control the minds of others for his own personal bidding, Buzz Lightyear, Star Command's most heroic ranger, must set out to stop Zorg before he controls every single mind in the galaxy.

While on a routine rescue mission to a nearby planet, elite Star Command ranger Buzz Lightyear and his partner, Warp Darkmatter, encounter more danger than they expect as Warp unexpectedly perishes while the two are battling a gargantuan alien being. After the mission Buzz returns to Star Command and vows never to take up with a partner again. Unfortunately for Buzz he is soon assigned a hot-shot rookie partner, one Mira Nova. After much dispute, Buzz reluctantly agrees. But when he hears of a plan by the intergalactic criminal Zorg, to control the minds of others, Buzz sets out alone to stop Zorg before his plan can take full effect. When our hero catches up with the villain, he finds out that the Zorg has more tricks up his sleeve than Buzz had guessed, and he realizes he won't be able to stop Zorg alone.

Tim Allen once again returns to the role of Buzz Lightyear in Disney's straight to video release Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. Allen is once again fantastic in this spin-off of the popular Toy Story character. He really fits this character like a glove, giving him the exact personality and emotion as the character you see on the screen. Joining Allen are The Drew Carry Show's Deidrich Bader, as Buzz's daring Star Command partner Warp Darkmatter, and Seinfeld's Wayne Knight, adding his voice talents for the role of Lightyear's arch-enemy Zorg. As if this comes as a surprise to anyone, once again Disney really has done a fantastic job on its voice casting, suiting each character with a perfect voice match.

Star Command is actually a surprisingly good feature because, not only is this a spin-off film, it is also done without the fantastic computer graphics that that helped make the Toy Story films so wonderful. Director Tad Stones' film does however have better than average cartoon animation that is brimming with a vast array of colors. And although this film does not have the amount of great characters its predecessor had, it does have some of those film's stars, including Buzz himself, and of course the hilarious Little Green Men. Writers Bob Roth and Bill Motz also bring to this film their own characters, including the cowardly robot X.R and Booster, the gentle alien giant. Command also has a great blend of action and humor that would certainly appeal to most youth, however the film may be a little too violent for very young children.

This film may not be the answer to helping your children with their homework when you are busy, but if you're looking for a hero to take them away from Barney for a couple of hours, just call upon Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.

Overall Rating: 7.5 out of 10
