‘Power Rangers’ Was Not as Bad as I Thought it Would Be
It does have a few issues though.
Power Rangers is a reboot of the long running TV show franchise about five teenagers given the power to save the Earth from other worldly foes. This film takes a more gritty reboot style and definitely gets rid of the goofiness of the original TV show. The film has big stars in it such as Bryan Cranston as Zordon (the Power Rangers mentor) and Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa (the villain).
Honestly, I grew up watching the Power Rangers and I didn't know about this film. I thought it was going to be a train wreck, and I was surprised that it was pretty fun to watch. There were issues with just random scenes put in the film that made zero sense but this is a great jumping point for the franchise. Elizabeth Banks goes crazy as the villain and I just wanted to see more.
If you are a fan of the franchise, I would go to a matinee showing and not spend a ton of money and if you have no idea about this then I would definitely wait till this comes out on video to check it out.
