Plot

The movie starts with Time Demon Chronos meeting with High Priest Gajya on getting rid of the Boukengers while obtaining three Goodomu Engines. As they plot, a mysterious figure watches above them. Afterwards, the Boukenger, excluding Bouken Silver, were summoned to battle some Curse. After their battle, they see Gajya and Chronos, with Chronos sending the Boukengers to a different dimension. Eiji was alerted of the situation, but before he could set out to rescue the other Boukengers, a mysterious figure named Aka Red, who describes himself as the embodiment of the fighting spirit of all Red Sentai Warriors, meets him and gives him the Super Sentai Address Book, which lists information on every Super Sentai member. He opens it to find Tsubasa Ozu, a.k.a. Magi Yellow from Mahou Sentai Magiranger .

Eiji tries to talk to Tsubasa during his boxing match, but ends up getting ejected from the side of the ring since he was interfering with his match. Next, Tetsu, a.k.a. Deka Break from Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger , is undercover trying to negotiate with Alienizers when Eiji interrupts. Eiji tries to acknowledge Tetsu's background as Deka Break, but Tetsu beats him up and sends him out the window to maintain his cover. Elsewhere, at the Duel Bond site, Chronos shows a time device, a reverse flowing hourglass, to Gajya, which when augmented to a Goodomu Engine enable him to revive one of the Three Sorcerers, past Super Sentai villains whose magic caused the greatest harm to the Earth. Chronos would set another up at the Matrix ruins with Gajya remaining to welcome the second Sorcerer while Chronos installed the final device at the countryside. In Chronos' time prison, the Boukengers find out they were blocked of their technology and they meet up with Hikaru, a.k.a. Magi Shine, also from Mahou Sentai Magiranger.

Eiji then receives a call through his GoGo Changer from Asuka, a.k.a. Abare Black from Bakuryū Sentai Abaranger , all the way from Dino Earth while taking care of his daughter. He tells Eiji that Aka Red contacted him, but the connection to Earth is weak since the power of the dimension door is weak as well. Even contacting him was hard through the GoGo Changer. He loses connection to Eiji after a few minutes. While Chronos set up his time devices, Hikaru talks to the Boukengers about Chronos and the Boukengers are introduced to Smokey, although at first mistaking him as precious. Eiji then tries to meet Nanami Nono, a.k.a. Hurricane Blue from Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger , before her rehearsal, but is blocked by security and many fans. In a desperate attempt to catch Nanami's attention, Eiji shouts out "Hurricane Blue," which Nanami is surprised by.

Chronos was then successful in summoning Meemy, from Mahou Sentai Magiranger, who meets up with Chronos. In frustration, Eiji throws out the Super Sentai Address Book and decides to battle Meemy and Chronos on his own. After Eiji is overpowered, he was rescued by Hurricane Blue, Abare Black, Deka Break and Magi Yellow. However, the various Super Sentai warriors repeatedly get in each other's way and Meemy and Chronos were able to escape. In the time prison, Satoru reveals that he has Zubaan with him. TsueTsue from Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger was then revived and welcomed by Gajya.

At SGS, Eiji receives a message from Satoru concerning Chronos. The Super Sentai warriors then promised to help Eiji rescue the rest of the Boukengers and meet Aka Red while the time prison holding the Boukengers and Hikaru is slowly disappearing. Chronos and the other villains found the last hourglass tipped over, with the final Sorcerer missing, when they were attacked by the Super Sentai warriors. As the time prison started to disintegrate, Sakura analyzed and concluded that the clock with root-like designs in the wall was the key to their escape. The Boukengers and Hikaru then utilize the Magi Lamp Buster's Smoky Shining Attack, accompanied by Zubaan, on the clock in the wall. Although this does not damage the clock at all, it causes another root-like clock in the real world to appear. Aka Red orders the other warriors to destroy the clock while he takes care of the villains, transforming into Magi Red and Gao Red respectively, and frightening both Meemy and TsueTsue in the process; for both respective villains, Magi Red and Gao Red were their worst enemies. As Aka Red fights off the villains, the others succeed in freeing the Boukengers and Magi Shine from the alternate dimension.

The Super Sentai warriors and the villains face off, with the Sentai warriors getting the upper hand until Furabiijo from Ninpuu Sentai Hurricanger interferes after "taking a walk". But with all three Sorcerers present and accounted, Chronos fuses them all into the Staff of the Three Philosophers, his intended goal from the start. With the power of the staff, Chronos enabled himself to grow to gigantic proportions with new golden armor. The Boukengers countered with Ultimate DaiBouken and SirenBuilder, but Chronos proved too powerful for both the mecha and were defeated. In a last-ditch effort, the Boukengers summoned DaiVoyager, which was almost defeated by Chronos as well. Aka Red, sensing the danger, came back into the action, becoming a vessel to power up DaiVoyager using the Spirits given by the remaining Super Sentai warriors, enabling DaiVoyager to access its Burning Legend form. Burning Legend DaiVoyager went on to defeat Chronos with the special attack, 30 Super Sentai Soul (an energy attack powered by the Super Sentai warriors of the past), and sent the released sorcerers back into the afterlife. After their victory, the Boukengers and the other Super Sentai warriors return to the SGS headquarters, and then parted ways. The Boukengers, however, would not have time to relax, as they receive another call from Mr. Voice concerning another Negative Syndicate on the move. The movie ends with Aka Red watching over the Earth in outer space, going into a deep sleep until he is needed again.

Aka Red

Aka Red (アカレッド, Aka Reddo) is the Spirit of the Super Sentai's Red Warriors. He has all of the powers of all of the Red Warriors, except Bouken Red. He leads the veteran Super Sentai warriors in the fight against Time Demon Chronos and his associates. Using his power of Soul Advent (ソウル降臨, Sōru Kōrin), he transforms into two of the past 30 warriors, Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger 's Gao Red and Mahou Sentai Magiranger 's Magi Red, the latter of which is Tsubasa's younger brother and Hikaru's brother-in-law. This power even recreates the henshin initiation gestures, the henshin sequence, roll call, and signature weapons and attacks. He also uses weapons from Bakuryū Sentai Abaranger 's Aba Red, Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger 's Hurricane Red, and Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger 's Deka Red. During his roll call, he quickly transforms into the aforementioned Red warriors in chronological order (from Gao Red to Magi Red). Design-wise, he is based on the first Red Warrior, Himitsu Sentai Gorenger 's Akarenger and the thickness of his spandex recalls the cloth suits used from Gorenger to Dai Sentai Goggle-V . The logo of the 30th Anniversary is on his left chest, while his belt buckle is made of the Roman numeral for the number 30 (XXX). He also possesses a fire motif, the common element of most Red Warriors, such as Gosei Sentai Dairanger 's Ryu Ranger, Seijuu Sentai Gingaman 's Ginga Red, Gao Red, Deka Red, Magi Red, and even Bouken Red himself. Before battle, he recites One who inherits the souls of the red warriors! Aka Red!

  • In episode 39 of the future Super Sentai series, Engine Sentai Go-Onger , Aka Red's helmet appears as one of the nine faces on the monster Yatai Banki's yatai, though the passive mask has no connection to the character from the Boukenger V-Cinema which premiered two years earlier; its appearance is merely trivial.
  • Aka Red returns in the 35th anniversary series Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger . In the series, his suit is redesigned with a 35 on chest to represent the 35th anniversary of Super Sentai . It is revealed that he was the leader of the Red Pirates - the largest rebel group to resist the Space Empire Zangyack. But when Basco ta Jolokia betrayed the group and sided with the Zangyack Empire, Aka Red handed Captain Marvelous the Ranger Keys, making him promise to find the Greatest Treasure in the Universe before disappearing in battle. Aka Red also made an appearance in Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle .

Aka Red is voiced by Tohru Furuya.

Chronos

Time Demon Chronos (時の魔神クロノス, Toki no Majin Kuronosu) is the V-Cinema's main antagonist. As his name suggests, he has the ability to control time, using a reverse flowing hourglass to revive past Super Sentai villains. He also imprisoned the Boukenger and Magi Shine in a time prison filled with cogs. Although he seems to fit into the theme of the enemies from Mahou Sentai Magiranger , he's fittingly based on Mirai Sentai Timeranger 's Providus.

Chronos is voiced by Bunkō Ogata.
