Coming right along on the heels of Power Rangers: Jungle Fury - Into the Jungle (Vol. 1) comes the second installment of this engaging and exciting series, especially geared to boys, probably from about age four up to the 'tween and even early teen age.

Way of the Master takes up where Into the Jungle left off. It contains the next six episodes of the series (7-12). The episodes together last for about 135 minutes, and while this isn't the best value, it's definitely better than some other compilation sets I've seen.

Dai Shi has escaped and now inhabits one of those who was supposed to become a Power Ranger (Geoff Dolan), who can take the shape of a lion. The three Power Rangers - Casey (Jason Smith), Lily (Anna Hutchison), and Theo (Aljin Abella) - can also take the shape of animals, and they use these powers to help them fight against Dai Shi. They also work in the Jungle Karma Pizza Parlor, owned by R.J. (David de Lautor), who is teaching them the craft.

Some new masters are introduced to the Power Rangers during these episodes: Master Swoop (blind bat), Master Phant (elephant), and Master Finn (shark-although, I've never seen sharks in the jungle, but my kids didn't seem to be fazed by this logical misstep). These masters help hone the powers of the Power Rangers and also add some more comic relief.

As an adult, I find the Power Rangers a little over the top and annoying, but my 10-year-old son loves this series. He records all of the episodes from Toon Disney and was thrilled to watch the first 12 episodes in order. There are some great over-arching good vs. evil themes, and the action is fun and will keep kids involved in watching the show. Power Rangers: Jungle Fury - Way of the Master (Vol. 2) is a good choice for any action-loving kid, and adults may find some of the humor clever enough to entertain even them.
