Previous Review: Review based on review (It was childish of me. I know)
First 40 minutes of the movie it is a b-grade version of the breakfast club. We have the nerd, the jock, the girl, the eccentric and the guy. They met at a detention center and somehow became acquainted.
Then after knowing that they are the Power Rangers, few more minutes were spent on each and every one of the group about their teens problem like families, sick family members, misunderstood and whatnot.
Finally, we get to see the power rangers in some sort of actions. They go through the normal “you’re going to be super heroes now workout” routine. This routine includes, normal friendly sparring and few moments of them finally bonded together as a group. Keep in mind, during this routine none of them will morph or get to play with their robots.
1 hour in to movie, finally a character break into a monster and almost killed the group. Like the normal movie plot, the alpha character tends to go physical to show dominance and the members fought. Blue ranger tried to stop the fight which this caused him to accidentally morph. Due to this the group sit together by the fire, why teens movie always involves sitting around a fire when they want to bond?
Rita however, slightly different than the original character of Rita. By different I mean, in this movie she’s acting like she is high on weed.
Anyways, if you’re looking for good robots’ action just skip this movie. If you’re looking to reminisce the good old tele series that you watched while growing up? Skip this movie. If you’re wondering what’s it like if the breakfast club suddenly became superheroes? Skip this movie. Seriously Judd Nelson would have whipped everyone’s bottom with his shoe lace.
So, when exactly that you should watch this movie? Mmm whenever you have that extra 120+ minutes to kill.
