For those not familiar with the popular Nickelodeon series, Animorphs concerns the adventures of five teens who have been given the ability to morph into animals and bugs. Don't dismiss it as a sci-fi Saved by the Bell. The acting is surprisingly top-notch, and the stories are fun and thrilling. Animorphs: Part 4--The Legacy Survives finds friends and morphers Jake (Shawn Ashmore), Rachel (Brooke Nevin), Marco (Boris Cabrera), Cassie (Nadia Nascimento), and Tobias (Christopher Ralph) in their big battle against the Yeerks, sluglike aliens who aspire to take over the world. The Yeerks insinuate themselves into a human ear and have all the appearances of being human. The three-episode adventure offered in Animorphs: Part 4--The Legacy Survives is like the creatively creepy They Live! for the 7 and up set.
The actual morphing process, as the teens turn into creatures, is especially neat, and audiences may find there's not quite enough of the inventive special effect. Since the episodes are designed for television, there are obvious breaks for commercials (distinctive fades-to-black) that may be distracting, but the video features footage that hasn't and won't be seen on television. --N.F.
