Why Watch? It’s a shrewd move that director Alex Albrecht from “The Totally Rad Show” (a person that I, in the interest of full disclosure, am friendly acquaintances with) chose to create an atmospheric character study instead of an all-out action blitz for VOLTRON: The End which, yes, features a pilot stuck inside a Battle Lion.

That man also happens to be played by Psych‘s Timothy Omundson (Lassie!). What could have been an overt outpouring of fan knowledge and callbacks to the show is, instead, a smart emotional journey with an outrageous beard and a hell of a last second reveal that’s only injured by the movie’s title. Seriously. It’s great for getting the word out, but how cool would it have been to watch a solid sci-fi piece only to have that giant familiar face hit you near the end? That aside, it’s a sharply written, nicely crafted fan film that deserves a bit of notice.

What will it cost? Only 4 minutes.
