POWER RANGERS movie review
So I think I might forgotten how the story goes since Power Rangers was shown when I was just around 7 to 10. Now that the Saban TV series is now a movie franchise, I tried to recall all elements from the show and compared it with the movie.
They have taken a new approach on the origins of the Rangers and why Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) wants to conquer earth so bad, I thought that there are major elements that are missed in the movie. They should shout "Mastodon - Pterodactyl - Triceratops - Sabre-toothed Tiger - Tyrranosaurus" to morph themselves into Power Rangers. That's how they can get the unknown bond between them and their own vehicles. The coins didn't do much on their morphing as they were just instruments to discover the new breed of Rangers.
There's a plot hole that crushed the concept of them having unbelievable strength they acquired upon discovering the coins. When Rita Repulsa tried to kill blue Billy (RJ Cycler/Blue Ranger), suddenly all of them have to help carry him. And the origin story is too long and the fight scene just took less than 10 minutes I think.
A few things great about Power Rangers -- they maintained actors diversity just like the TV series. There's White, Black, Asian, and even a lesbian is part of the characters. Making it very human and adapting to the times. New outfit is better and I liked it too with the metallic accents and works. I just LOL'd on the scene which Rita Repulsa made herself comfortable with a piece of Krispy Kreme and a cup of coffee before she started destroying the Rangers home town. Plus a good cameo by Amy Jo Johnson and Jason David Frank at the end.
